Mindfulness is a game-changer that we need to take much more seriously because it enhances our ability to navigate our moments, days, and life more effectively.
An abundance mindset allows one to see their financial situation as something that can grow and expand. This mindset leads one to believe that the way to build wealth is to increase the size of the pie, even if it take increasing costs in order to do so.

Most people develop habits and most organizations develop policies to keep the train moving along in inertia.

Mindsets are incredibly powerful. They drive our thinking, learning, behavior, and even our physiology.
If you want to improve your life—to get from where you are currently at to where you want to be—it is going to be necessary to (1) become conscious of your mindsets, and (2) improve your mindsets.
