INTRODUCTION

We live in an era where books on abundance are literally,


abundant in the market and people looking for such resources,
no less.

The word abundance is attractive simply because nobody,


innately, will accept lack in their lives.

It is not surprising then, that self-help gurus are leveraging on


the merchantability of this word in their guides to draw in more
profits.

Granted, many books do help in certain ways but few to none


actually go in depth to address the fundamentals of achieving
abundance.

This is worrying because the mastery of abundance can only be


achieved on a fundamental level. It is these cores which are the
pillars of a successful life.

And until we firm up the cores of abundance, we will not have


stability and consistency in every area of our life with regards to
this abundance we so readily desire.

The goal of this guide is, therefore, to help you understand these
points which are so crucial in your quest to master abundance.

Digest them.

Apply them.

And hopefully, your life will change for the better.

1
3 CORES TO MASTER

The mastery of abundance is not rocket science.

The terms may sound complicated but Ive broken them down to
just 3 cores for you to understand in order to get your path
straight.

These 3 cores are:

1) Contentment core
2) Self-Awareness core
3) Kindness core

In the following chapter, you will learn more about them and how
to apply them to your life and master the art of abundant living.

2
CHAPTER ONE:
CONTENTMENT CORE

Contentment. Yes you read that right.

Overused in personal development guides but seldom understood


and much less applied, this is the first and probably the most
important core you are going to learn.

Without contentment, you will never master abundance.

Contentment is the root which holds the tree of abundance in its


place resistant to the strong winds of greed and lust.

To be content is not just to be happy with where you are or what


you have but rather to accept the fact that everything you have
from the day you were born is for a reason and that you could
lose them anytime.

3
With this right mindset, even if you really do lose something you
value, you will learn how to accept it because nothing in this
physical world is permanent.

And, on the other hand, if you lose something that is negatively


affecting your life in any way, then your joy will be multiplied.

Put it simply, contentment is joy in living minimally and it is in


living minimally are you able to be abundant as paradoxical as
that may sound.

Action step

1) Start today by cutting away things you do not need in your


life.
2) Think of the things which will distract you from mastering
your abundance. It can be an Instagram selfie which is
generating a lot of likes (thus fuelling your vanity) or the
extra snacks you munch on during supper (which offer you
no nutritional value). Anything which is playing a negative
role in your life basically.
3) Pen them down on a piece of paper and begin to cut them
away from your life.

You will begin to feel happier once the negative things (you once
thought had value) in your life are gone.

4
CHAPTER TWO:
SELF-AWARENESS CORE

Learning contentment will lead to heightened self-awareness.

You will start to know what you need and what you do not need.

However, there is still so much to find out about yourself which


you havent.

To perfect abundance within, you need to find out more about


your own attitudes and reactions towards different situations you
are placed in.

According to the Johari Window technique to help people


understand themselves and others better, there is also a blind
spot quadrant for every individual information about him or
her that he or she is not aware of but is known to others around
him or her.

5
It is crucial to access this blind spot so that you will know
yourself better.

Combining the knowledge of your own attitudes and reactions to


different circumstances you are placed in coupled with
information about yourself people know which you dont can only
then allow you to tap into your true potential and release the
abundance within.

Action step

This step is fairly straightforward yet not easy to implement.

1) Difficult situations may not be there as and when you wish


so the only way to find out how you will react when faced
with an uncomfortable situation is to have a pen and a
notebook ready the next time you encounter one. Jot down
the attitude you displayed towards others and how you
reacted in that situation. Go back, read what you wrote and
reflect on points you can improve on.
2) Now, to help you see information about yourself that others
do and you dont, simply go to your closest friends and
family. Give them a paper and ask them to write down 3
things about yourself which they think you do not know
both good and bad. Take their pointers and again, do a
short reflection. You will be surprise at how much you can
find your true self doing these things; and that is one step
closer to mastering your abundance.

CHAPTER THREE:
KINDNESS CORE

And be ye KIND to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one


another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

- Ephesians 4:32 (KJV)

You have now reached the final chapter and you may probably see
how all these 3 cores relate to each other and how they will
ultimately form your total abundance.

The final core to master is the Kindness core.

Showing kindness to others for a day is simple. But making


kindness a habit and lifestyle is very difficult (you can bet on
that).

We, as humans, have to deal with our emotions and oftentimes,


when we encounter a rude party, we will respond similarly if not
worse.

7
And this is why it is important to know yourself and how you will
react as explained in the previous chapter. Knowing yourself on a
deeper level will allow you to manage your emotions better
which will in turn produce a more positive reaction.

Dear friend, you need to understand that kindness is a chain


reaction. It is contagious and once you start this act, it can
continue forward and make the world a better place.

Also, when you show kindness to others, you are benefitting


yourself and this is where kindness plays a part in completing
your mastery of abundance.

8
Action step

If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not
even the tax collectors doing that?

And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more
than others? Do not even pagans do that?

- Matthew 5:46-47 (NIV)

I know it is not easy to show kindness to everyone. But it is


absolutely essential in your quest to master abundance. So to
make it easier,

1) Start by showing more kindness to the people who are easy


to love.
Do something a little more for them. Hug them, pat them
and tell them that they are important to you; anything which
you havent done in a while or have never done before.
2) Once you are used to the common kindness you show
around your friends and loved ones, proceed to show
kindness to the people whom are not on good terms with
you. Talk to them, understand them and approach them
without an agenda (even if you receive a negative response
in return). Harbor no ill thought.

THE MASTERY OF ABUNDANCE

Below is a pictorial outline of the cores to remember and focus on


in your journey to attain total abundance. If at any point in time,
you need to refresh yourself, or just simply to reflect on the
steps, feel free to just focus on this page.

Contentment Core: Start being contented and learn to


acknowledge the fact that you can lose everything at any
time.

Self-awareness Core: Only by being contented are you


able to proceed on to become self-aware.

Kindness Core: Kindness flows easily once you are


contented with your life and are more aware of yourself in
every area.

10
CONCLUSION

I hope this simple breakdown of the fundamentals has helped you


realized how important it is to start by building up your cores.

Without these pillars, your quest for abundance will be in vain.

Remember these 3 important cores because they will follow you


for life.

They are your guiding light to the end of the tunnel leading
towards complete abundance.
