The idea of an abundant life may seem vague at first, but Hamm strips the concept down to nine areas of abundance—self-worth, wealth, health, time, energy, love, joy, creativity, and career—and applies her four-step method to each area. She includes positive affirmations, or “cancellations” (things to stop doing or thinking), in the Say It sections, whereas the See It portion of each chapter encourages readers to build a “vision board” to visualize the abundance they’re seeking (hint: when working on having more time with family, post a picture of your next vacation spot on the vision board). Daily journaling is a must-do when it comes to reinforcing goals, according to Hamm, and she offers numerous journaling prompts for each area of abundance in the guide’s Write It sections. To fully implement new ways of thinking, readers will find practical “Do It” assignments closing out each chapter.
Hamm has meticulously built this guide to be interactive, and she emphasizes the work required to put her advice into practice while reminding readers that wealth is not the only (or most important) area of abundance—"[you] can cultivate abundance in every area of your life if you are willing to do the work to make it happen" she writes. Anyone wishing to accomplish life goals through pragmatic, easy-to-follow advice will find this invaluable.
Takeaway: A four-step framework to achieving abundance in life.
