Ep 97 Abundance Is Knowing Sufficiency

Good morning from Montauk. What’s on my mind this morning is the word sufficiency, and here’s why. I was en route to Montauk and I had two nights with my dear friend Dana in a very basic old school motel directly on the beach. It’s our little secret spot – a place we both love – and when I arrived at my friend’s house in Montauk, I was telling her what a magical time we had. She said to me “what was so magical about it?”, and I said “it reminded me of the concept of sufficiency.” And she said, “Say more. Why not abundance?”

While we talk a lot about having an abundance mindset, abundance is more tied to scarcity – the opposite of scarcity – and sufficiency is a very different thing. Sufficiency in Sanskrit means I am full. It’s about not having a desire for anything more. It’s about contentment. Gratitude for what you have. I saw this great quote and it says, “abundance is knowing sufficiency.”

So anyway, this morning I got up and I said to myself, why am I using this word sufficiency, and it took me back to this incredible woman by the name of Lynne Twist. She wrote a book called ‘The ‘Soul of Money’. It is a beautiful book about this concept of sufficiency.
