The journey from surviving to thriving lies in the mindset. If we don’t figure out some clear distinctions about 4 critical mindsets laid out in the Prosperity Quadrant™, we will surely fall short of what we could be, and do, and accomplish. We will certainly find ourselves struggling more than we need to.
Chances are pretty good that you or someone close to you falls into some of the traps that we will cover in the article here today.
The Prosperity Quadrant™
Below is a breakdown of The Prosperity Quadrant™. It is important to note that we are not solely talking about a person’s financial status, but even more so about their mindset and attitude.
Those who are in the poor quadrant may find themselves constantly struggling to be able to keep their relationships together. They likely base their life decisions on circumstantial situations, rather than rock solid principles. The poor find themselves lacking and wanting in just about every facet of their lives. Their money will always run away from them because of mindset and patterns of spending. Their lives are dominated by scarcity. They likely have not achieved any high level of success in their endeavors. They are imprisoned by their attitudes and oftentimes their financial and physical situation.
The Middle Class
The Middle Class are those who have some aspects of their lives put together. For a financial example, a Middle-Class person is likely someone who has a strong steady job that has provided them with a decent income. However, they are likely spending beyond their means in order to impress others or to convince themselves of some sort of internal inadequacy or shortcoming. The middle class will do things to keep up with appearances, they are often driven by emotions and the views of others rather than working from a sound base of knowledge. The middle class may spend more on a home or a vehicle because of the way it looks, rather than what makes fiscal sense.
How can you know what someone’s priorities are? It is where they spend their time.
The Poor and Middle Class may say that money is not important. But they spend most of their time working for it. Their mentality is incongruent with their actions.
The Rich are those who have achieved a certain level of success or status. They have probably accumulated a great deal of wealth in a financial sense, or a particular level of wealth in some aspect of their lives. Perhaps someone may be rich in their relationship with their children, but it could be in detriment to the relationship with their partner or spouse. Perhaps someone may be rich in aspects of personal health and fitness, to the detriment of their ability to connect with and influence others. The rich have indeed conquered foes on the field of battle, however, they may fail to realize that they have not yet won the war.
The Abundant, are those who have breakthrough success. They are those who live a life of harmonious balance. Those who are Abundant get on the other side of leverage, with both their money and their time. A key misunderstanding about those who are Abundant is that they may devote an equal amount of time or resources to all important aspects of their lives at all times. This is not so. A harmonious melody often has crescendos, ebbs and flows, even times of silence. This is what living a life of Abundance is like. Not sacrificing the relationships for the cause of making money, however realizing that money is still a very important and healthy part of life.
Those who are Abundant typically have access and proximity to knowledge, which is foundational and rock solid. The Abundant live a life of principle and as such experience a great deal of joy. When faced with adversity or tragedy, the Abundant will be able to keep perspective as to what is most important, and they will “stay the course.” Living a life of Abundance is something we all ought to strive for. As Brandon Broadwater says, “The Rich may have all the things that money can buy, but the Abundant also have those things which money cannot buy.”
