You are likely here because you want a life of financial freedom. I am 100% with you on that goal, and I’m convinced it is absolutely achievable. These abundance mindset quotes may help you get there.
However, achieving financial freedom isn’t really about how much money you make or accumulate. It has so much to do with your mindset. You may have targets for how much money you need to be happy or financially free or to consider yourself successful. But I challenge you to ask yourself if anything will really change once you reach your targets.
Are these targets meaningful, or are they just numbers that you’ve chosen?
I spent many years thinking I would be happier when I made a certain amount, or when I paid off all my debt, or when I had a certain net worth.
Having since blown past all those targets, I’ve now decided that this way of thinking is ridiculous. I hope I can convince you to agree.
For me, being genuinely thankful for what I have brings more happiness than any amount of money or stuff. A lot of this realization came after I got rid of an enormous number of things that bogged me down and brought no joy to my life. I was so much happier with little clutter and less stuff.
At the end of the day, I still get joy from all the little things I got joy from when I was broke. Hot coffee, sleeping in, a good workout, a bubble bath, etc.
Having said that, to get you on the path to financial freedom and peace, here are some of my favorite abundance mindset quotes.
5 Abundance Mindset Quotes for Financial Freedom
1. “When you understand that your self-worth is not determined by your net-worth, then you’ll have financial freedom.” –Suze Orman
Think about how you compare yourself to others. And then stop doing it.
You have the same worth as every-single-other-person here on Earth, regardless of your financial situation. There is a level of freedom in knowing this to be true, because you no longer need to compete with your neighbor or sister or friend for importance. You are important just because you are here.
Work on growing your net-worth from a place of gratitude and self-love. This posture will attract good things to your life, including financial abundance.
2. “Rich people believe ‘I create my life.’ Poor people believe ‘Life happens to me.’” – T. Harv Eker
Take action, friends! When you actively participate in your life, you automatically create more financial abundance and freedom. Even if the action takes time, effort, and there are losses along the way, if you believe in yourself and believe that you create your life, so much more is possible.
I love Tim Ferris’ book The 4-Hour Workweek. It’s all about lifestyle design, including taking the time to understand what you want, and then creating the life you want to live. He makes it seem so possible and gives you action steps to make it happen. Read it!
3. “The key to abundance is meeting limited circumstances with unlimited thoughts.” ~ Marianne Williamson
How often have you felt like you’re hitting a brick wall and can’t get around it? Do you give up and walk away or do you keep trying? When you have thoughts of possibility, you can achieve so much more.
I always remind myself when in a difficult situation, that there is a solution to this problem, I just have to figure out what it is. When you truly believe you can do hard things, you will.
4. “More important than the HOW we achieve financial freedom, is the WHY. Find your reasons why you want to be free and wealthy.” –Robert Kiyosaki
Sure, we all want financial freedom and abundance, but why? Aren’t you willing to work harder when you know your why?
One of the main reasons I value financial freedom is to ensure I have time and energy to be a good mom. I want to take trips with my husband and kids. I want to go to as many dance competitions and soccer games as possible. I want to have time just to be with my kids, and listen to them, and appreciate them while they are with me.
Your why will likely differ from mine and most other people’s, and that’s okay. Find your why and use it to help you prioritize good financial practices over buying more stuff.
5. “The goal isn’t more money. The goal is living life on your terms.” –Chris Brogan
We’re all programmed to want as much money as possible, but why? What if you don’t need as much money as the person next to you? Instead of focusing on a dollar amount, focus on living life on your terms.
How much will it take for you to feel fulfilled? How much cash flow do you need to pay your bills, feel secure, and live your best life? It might be less than you think.
Financial freedom and an abundance mindset comes down to how you think. Everything starts with gratitude. If you practice showing gratitude for what you have, abundance naturally follows.
There are a million books on money and how to make it, how to spend it, how to grow it, etc. But I have to tell you, the two most impactful books if you truly want to think about money differently are Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki and the 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferris. Read these, do what they teach, and your life will change for the better.
If you aren’t sure how you talk to yourself about money, keep a journal. I’ve made it a practice to write down 5 things I am grateful for every day. Inevitably, one of those things I am grateful for each day has something to do with abundance of financial or other resources. It reminds me that I am already living a life of incredible abundance and anything additional is just icing on the cake.
I can’t end this post without a quote from Tim Ferris’ The 4-Hour Workweek! So here it is: “”If I only had more money” is the easiest way to postpone the intense self-examination and decision-making necessary to create a life of enjoyment – now and not later.” I love this! What would it take to live your most exciting life? How can you do what makes you fulfilled? Figure that out and GO FOR IT.
