I am feeling abundantly positive. Positively!

My wife and I were talking and she excitedly expressed an idea that made me change my thinking.  She said that it's amazing there are so many pine cones from one pine tree.  The ground was covered with cones.

That got us thinking that there is so much abundance around us.  The limits we experience are placed by our own actions, thoughts, or attitudes.  The world seems to be designed to express and to offer us abundance!

What keeps me from accepting that abundance?  My own limits.  Not enough time.  Not enough energy.  Not enough this.  Not enough that.  Because one time this happened or that happened.  I've always been told this or that.  What I am being told now is ...

Abundance is available.  Accepting abundance and gratefully appreciating it, seems to be more in unison with the abundance that is available to me. 

I can't explain very clearly how these ideas changed me, except to say I feel more positive.  I am feeling abundantly positive.  Positively!

The opportunities in real estate today are like those pine cones.  There are more opportunities than I can use myself.  Other people can take advantage of many.  More are waiting until they get chosen.

We have the lowest interest rates in decades.  There are more people paying their mortgages than not.  People are buying property.  I gratefully accept the abundance that is surrounding me.

Happy listing and selling!

I agree with you I feel very positive too.  We just need to ride out the remaining down side and than we can move forward.

What an interesting concept-I to wish this way of thinking-thanks for sharing.

Funny how the pine cones triggered the positive thoughts.  We really do have a lot, and a brighter future.

Heath, it all depends on how things are perceived. I hope more people will stop listening to the doom and gloom to free themselves to see the positive things around them.

I agree 100%! I refuse to listen to the gloom & doom, and am extremely grateful for all I have in my life. Thanks for the wonderful story!

Ah HUH...so now to get the message out to the millions...I think they want the message but are afraid to believe it.  BELIEVE IT I SAY!!!  It's true.  Opportunity comes from adversity.  Relish it, embrace it and make your future brighter in these opportunities.  I am.  IRA money in real estate a no brainer.

This was terrific food for thought to share. I agree - the power of positive thinking is the way to go...remember it attracts more positive thinkers, too. Thanks for sharing!

Heath, maybe it's the West Texas influence (on both of us) but I have always been taught to appreciate the abundance in my life (even when it appears to be in short supply) and to be grateful. Thanks for a very good post and an excellent start to my day!

Thank you for the abundant comments!  Joel Osteen had similar thoughts today.  God has given you your dreams, and He wants to fulfill them for you, too.

True to every word you say as I agree in abundance.  There is so much around us but we neglect to open our eyes and see the nature to learn and get inspired. 

Great thought

Hi Heath, I find it interesting that this point of view was inspired by your noticing a tree surrounded by its many pine cones. A very cool thought to help the people around you stay positive.

And think of all the pine seeds in all those pine cones. Your Pines remind me of my P's: Pleasant, Polite, Positive, Personable, and Professional.
