The Abundant Mind And How To Use SMART Goals

The abundant mind is the basis of our financial success. Without an abundant mind, money will always run away from us. Even if someone with a poor money mindset wins a million, he or she will be out of money in no time.

Two aspects are important for an abundant mind. The first aspect is about maintaining a balance – the balance between “I give” and “I take”.

The other aspect is the skill to specify what you want.

If you do not master both of these aspects, you probably have a scarcity mindset which blocks the flow of wealth and money in your life.

Once you master the balance it is time for you to think about what you really want to manifest. Without exactly defining what it is that you desire, the universe can’t bring it to you.

In this post, you will discover how to reprogram your money mindset and also how to use SMART goals to finally attract exactly what it is you desire.

Law of Abundance – The Ultimate Balance For An Abundant Mind

Maybe you have been trying to meditate, visualize, make vision boards, and journal every day. Nothing seemed to work for you.

As a result, you get frustrated and disappointed by the law of attraction. However, if you only tell the universe what you want but you act like you don’t deserve it, you can’t accept it or you are unable to give and share, then you won’t manifest your desires.

Find areas in your life that you can improve when it comes to what you receive and what you give.

With the following sections, you will better understand what is meant and recognize where you keep blocking your money flow.

The Balance Between What You Give And What You Take

Our life is based on balance. Everything is about giving and taking. People that only give or only take cannot manifest money

Balance is about giving as much as you get, and being willing to both receive and give.

Many people block the manifestation of money and wealth in their lives by not being able to receive or to give.

The following are indicators that your giving and receiving are not in alignment:

• You devote a significant amount of attention and dedication to others and you forget self-care and self-pampering;

• You like to give gifts to others but you feel a little akward when you receive gifts;

• You help other people a lot, but you often reject to request support because you believe you have to be autonomous;

• You hate when other people pay for you at the restaurant;

• You compliment other people but when they compliment you, you feel uncomfortable and awkward;

• You are prone to taking over most of the talking and probably neglect to check in with your friend or partner to learn about how they are feeling;

• Or the reverse, you are the person who always listens and rarely talks about anything personal.

Do any of these points apply to you?

If yes, you are unknowingly informing the universe that you are not worthy of receiving.

The universe can’t manifest wealth in your life if you cannot receive plain presents from other people.

Let’s take a moment to look at other examples of imbalance in certain parts of our lives.


If you are out of balance in a relationship (with a friend, partner, or family member), you either take too much or you give too much.

If you give too much, you are likely to forget yourself and live only to be nice to others. On the contrary, maybe you take too much.

You find yourself constantly speaking and demanding attention just to satisfy your own desires.

Typically, you are not truly concerned with the other person’s life.


Are you one of those people who spend extra hours in the office? You go home later than anyone else or you do the work for 2 persons instead of one?

Perhaps you feel sick but you refuse to stay home because of your conscience.

You are probably taking on the responsibilities of two people rather than one and you feel that you always have to get the work done, even if it results in a lack of personal life.

On the contrary, when you keep taking more than you should, you refuse to help others, you show up to work too later and take 2 hours for lunch.


This is one of the most important areas in which you should be capable of balancing the give and take perspectives.

Persons with imbalances here might spend way too much or are too greedy.

With an abundant mind you shouldn’t spend more than your savings allow, neither should you refuse to enjoy your financial freedom or to pay for other people every now and then.

Whenever people invite you to pay for your coffee or something, you should always accept it. You have to signal the universe that you accept money.

Also, donating can have a huge and positive impact on your flow of money. What you send out, that comes back to you (and probably multiplied).

Spending 5-10% of your salary on good causes or other people seems ideal. Of course only if you are in the financial situation to do so.

Shift To An Abundant Mind Today

Fortunately, it is never too late to find balance in your life to improve manifestations and life quality.

Take a sheet of paper and a pencil and reflect on which aspect of your life are not in alignment with the law of abundance.

List down where you could bring more balance in your life between giving and receiving.

How could you improve in these areas? However, it is helpful to first define what you actually want.

What Do You Want To Manifest… Exactly?

Imagine you go to a car salesman and say that you want to buy a new car. How amazing!
Now the salesman asks you what kind of car you want: A sports car, a family car, a cabriolet maybe?

The problem is: You do not know.

He will just show you all the cars.

Maybe you will get what you want, maybe not.

This little story should make clear that the universe can’t give to you want if you don’t know what you want.

You need to know exactly what it is that you want to manifest. When defining what you want start with the following statement:

I want..


I am grateful and thankful for..

The key here is that you don’t want to describe what it is that you don’t want.

For example, instead of saying: “I don’t want to gain more weight”, say: “I want to keep my weight or even lose more pounds” or “I am grateful and thankful that I have a healthy and fit body”.

The law of attraction can’t differentiate between negative and positive, so even if you mean that you don’t want to gain weight, the universe will take this statement as a wish to gain more pounds.

The SMART Goal

A nice way (and my favorite way) to be clear in what it is you want to manifest is to create a SMART goal.

Basically, SMART goal means:

  • Specific,
  • Measurable,
  • Attainable,
  • Relevant and
  • Time-bound.

For example, let’s assume you want to manifest $10,000 in your savings account by the end of the year. If you apply the SMART goal approach, it could look like this:

SpecificI intend to have $10,000 in my savings account until the end of the next year.
Achievable$10,000 would mean that I would have to save $833 every month, an amount that is manageable for me.
Relevant$10,000 can be used as capital to start my own business so I can finally quit my current job.

When you set a SMART goal it helps you specify what you want so that you can develop a clear intention and it also helps you reflect on whether your goal is as relevant to you as you thought.
