Abundance is one of my favorite topics. Peter Diamandis wrote an excellent book on the topic. Page after page he points out how we have abundance all around us. I highly recommend it.
I believe in ABUNDANCE. I think there is always more, for and ahead of us. Don’t get me wrong, I realize that some resources are scarce. Scarcity is the first topic in any economics course. At the same time, Adam Smith spoke of abundance: “But this proportion must in every nation be regulated by two different circumstances: first, by the skill, dexterity, and judgment with which its labour is generally applied; and, secondly, by the proportion between the number of those who are employed in useful labour, and that of those who are not so employed. Whatever be the soil, climate, or extent of territory of any particular nation, the abundance or scantiness of its annual supply must, in that particular situation, depend upon those two circumstances.” Adam Smith, The Wealth of Nations
Abundance drives capitalism. Abundance drives our need to succeed. Abundance drives why we work. We believe love is abundant. The list goes on and on. Abundance and scarcity are two sides of one coin. I believe that one has the right to choose. Sustainable long-term decisions lead to abundance.
How do you think abundance can lead to happiness?
