People do not have positive or negative outlooks on life. “Trying to be positive” is a form of denial. It is a statement that says, “I am not positive, but I will fake it.” We are not positive or negative. We are either aligned with the flow of abundance, or the limitations of scarcity. We cannot “try” to be either one. We are aligned one way or the other. We can shift that alignment through various methods if we discover we are aligned in a way that doesn’t work for us. It requires being authentic and real about where we are in the first place. “Fake it til you make it” actually only perpetuates the scarcity and limitations, because by the very nature of “fake it til you make it”, it is fake. We begin the shift by first of all being honest about where we are. The simple idea of being honest immediately connects us to all of what is. From there we connect to all the greater possibilities that are already around us in this world of unlimited abundance. It can be that easy!
