“When we operate from the principle of scarcity, we generally believe, “If only I had something else, THEN I would have a lock on happiness and success.” A close look at this logic shows that what we are really saying is: “I am not complete right now. In some way I lack what I need. When I get that I will be complete.” If that is our belief, then we are relying on a disabled, incomplete person.
This kind of scarcity thinking assumes that we are not yet complete, happy, loving, total human beings, that we do not already have the missing pieces in abundance within ourselves. Thus we operate from a thinking process of deficiency, and end up trapped in the belief that “I’ve got to have more before I can be happy.” This is the very thing that keeps us from tuning in to the abundance that is everywhere.
You are it already. You already possess exactly what you need for happiness, success, fulfillment, and all of the lofty general goals that so many of us aspire. If our basic needs are met, and we have food, water, and air, then we have within us the ability to be blissfully happy. As Gandhi said, “God comes to the hungry in the form of food.”
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, in “You’ll See It When You Believe It”
