You Are More Than Enough – How To Live In Abundance – Mindset Monday
POSTED ON July 2, 2017 BY Drew Canole
Today I am sitting with my good friend, Jensen Scherer. He is usually the one BEHIND the camera, but today I gave the camera to someone else so that you could get a taste of this guy’s magic. Jensen is a goldmine of love and power and I wanted to give you a taste of what he has taught me.
We are going to talk specifically about a question most of you are asking yourselves every single day and that is… am I enough?
We ask ourselves this constantly, sometimes without even realizing it. Especially with social media and the news and the amount of other people’s lives we see into every day… it is natural to compare ourselves and wonder how we measure up.
Unfortunately, the lens we compareourselves through is dreadfully inaccurate. We are our worst critic and we tend to compare our worst moments to other people’s best. So when our heads are hanging low and we feel like we aren’t quite “there yet,” what is the solution? And if we stay in that mindset, what will we sacrifice?
I would like to suggest that when we remain in a mindset of LACK… lack in ourselves and our worth… we sacrifice ABUNDANCE.
Everything stems from inside of YOU. Your happiness, your abundance, your love, your influence… these things all come from a place inside of you. So when you tell yourself you aren’t “enough,” you are shutting the door on all of these things.
How To Live In Abundance And Feel “Enough”
Here are a few lessons Jensen and I have learned that have helped us conquer self-doubt and to live in a space of gratitude and abundance.
#1. Say So
“Words are containers for power. You choose what kind of power they carry.” – Joyce Meyer
What you say literally becomes your truth. Your word creates new experiences each and every day. What is the first thing you say when you wake up in the morning? What are the first thoughts you think?
I use to hit the snooze button 7 times and the first thing I would say in the morning was that “I’m tried.” That declaration followed me all day. My tiredness became more important than my VISION.
Shift this minor mindset and you can create a whole new space of possibility. When you wake up first thing in the morning and you tell yourself how radically abundant your day is going to be, your day will be completely different. THAT is the shadow I want following me around all day!
#2. Focus On Your Purpose In The Present
“Wherever you are, be all there.” – Jim Elliot
When you get in your head and are feeling inadequate, you are usually thinking about either the past or the future. If you pull yourself into the moment and focus all your energy on your current purpose, imagine what is possible!
I suggest going outside everyday and grounding. Talk with people you feel are good at living in the moment. Do something crazy like ride a roller coaster or go hang-gliding. Whatever it is that can pull all your attention to NOW. Your life is now! Don’t miss it because you are dwelling in the past or stressing about the future.
#3. You Are Here To Give
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill
Here’s something you might not be expecting; by taking care of YOUR NEEDS and putting on your oxygen mask first, you are actually doing more to help the people around you than if you spend all your time taking care of them!
When you are in a state of being enough and having self love, you are filling up everyone else along with yourself. They feel your love, joy, energy and life and can feel empowered by it. It is not selfish. It is recognizing that YOUR WORTH is as high as the stars and the planets. When someone else sees how you hold yourself high, it gives him/her permission to do the same thing for him/herself!
So give to others by taking care of yourself so that your capacity to give doubles, triples and quadruples. Really, it becomes limitless.
And remember, we’re in this together.

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
