I believe in the spirit of abundance. However, I am practical and would like money in the bank.
I read somewhere that you have to attract money into your life (not LOA, more like how you would go about attracting friends or a potential mate). Study it, respect it, pay attention to it. Hang around people who have it (if possible). Treat it well - keep your bills neat in your wallet; not all crumpled up or stuffed in a pocket. Know how much is in your wallet and in your accounts at all times.
I don't want to be obssessed with money, but I don't want to be careless about it either. It IS important.
So now I see that a scarcity mindset includes Scrooge at one end and reckless emotional spending at the other. While Scrooges do have financial success, there is no true satisfaction or happiness there.
I think I will just show a consistent interest and stewardship of money and practice a general abundance mindset.
I would love to be a fastlane person, but realistically, I know my limitations. Scratch that - I'm working on overcoming my limitations.
