You Deserve a Life Filled With Abundance

You Deserve a Life Filled With Abundance!

Every time I tell someone the title of my book they’re curious. That’s because “Strategies for Cats” is a metaphor. Yes, it is a story about “Kitty”, a homeless cat who receives a life filled with abundance, and I guess I could have used a person instead of my cat, but you may not fall in love with her like a lot of readers already have.

When I talk with experts about my topic, I listen to hear if the lessons I teach through the story are accurate. My core inspiration is Think and Grow Rich (Hill, 1937), and the subtitles fit my desire for you! “Change the way you think” so you can “receive the abundance you deserve.” But recently I had a conversation with a coaching expert and I was told, “I never use the word abundance”.

Did I made a mistake? Was I using the word the wrong way?  Should have used another word like “wealth” or “joy” or “riches”? I was confused.

Abundance is defined as “a very large quantity of something”. I like that. Abundance can also be defined as “the opposite of scarcities”. When you meet “Negative Nancy” in my book, she is all about “lack and scarcity”. The more you get to know her, the more you want to avoid her (Strategy #7, Stay Away from Negative Cats!) Now the word takes on a better meaning.

“Receive the abundance you deserve”. What’s wrong with that? Well…it gets down to a few decisions, and decisions are made in your conscious mind (Strategy #11, Make a Decision). The first one is to decide you want a life filled with abundance, then make a bigger decision.

Decide exactly what you want.

Wait a minute! Maybe the coach is right. Maybe the coach believes the word “abundance” is vague, like you’re wishing and hoping for something imaginary. You don’t know what it is, you just know you deserve it, whatever it is. Right? And when you don’t get it (because you don’t know what it is), you’re disappointed, you stop believing, and you continue your life without change.

What should be crystal clear in your mind is exactly what you want and when you expect it to happen. Chapter 2, “Desire”, in Think and Grow Rich (Hill, 1937) lays this out beautifully, and it’s exactly what Kitty does in the story.

Some people are exceptionally visionary with their expectations. They have the ability to define what they want, believe what they want has already happened, and now it’s just materializing into their physical life (like a seed buried in the ground). It’s what happened with Kitty when The Voice (her subconscious mind) fulfilled her wish to have a name. She didn’t know what her name was yet, but because of her faith in herself (and The Voice), she knew she had one. And of course, at the end of the story when she hears it for the first time, her dream, her desire, her wish, it all comes together. Very heartwarming!

The final decision you need to make is about the word “deserve”. Are you worthy? Or do you believe you get what life gives you and wish for the best? The answer is inside of you, and your willingness to make one more decision: Do you deserve it?

As The Voice says over and over in our story, the answer is “YES”. So do what the movie “The Secret” (Byrne, 2006) tells you to do:  “Ask…believe…receive.” After all, you deserve a life filled with abundance!

Thomas C. Corley About Thomas C. Corley

Tom Corley understands the difference between being rich and poor: at age nine, his family went from being multi-millionaires to broke in just one night, due to a catastrophic fire that destroyed his Dad's thriving business. For fourteen years they struggled with poverty. There were eleven in Tom's family, and they lived in constant fear of losing their home.

Driven by the desire to unlock the secrets to success and failure, Tom spent five years studying the daily activities of 233 rich people and 128 poor people. He discovered there was an immense difference between the habits of the rich and the poor. During his research he identified over 300 daily activities that separated the “haves” from the “have nots.” Tom decided to write a book to share what he learned. That book, Rich Habits: The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals (1st Edition), went on to become an Amazon Bestseller in the United States forty times over a three year period. To give you some perspective, in order to be a true Amazon Bestseller in the United States, where you actually receive a specific Bestseller designation from Amazon, you need to be in the top 100 of all books sold by Amazon in the United States in a given day. Rich Habits did that for nearly thirty straight days, rising as high as #7, eclipsing such Bestselling authors such as Stephen Covey, Robert Kiyosaki and J.K. Rowlings. Imagine that - an unknown, first-time, self-published author selling more books than J.K. Rowlings!

Tom now travels the world, sharing his Rich Habits and motivating audiences at industry conferences, corporate events, universities, multi-level marketing group events, and global sales organizations’ presentations and finance conferences. He has even spoken on the same stage with famous entrepreneurs and personal development experts, such as Sir Richard Branson, Robin Sharma, Dr. Daniel Amen, and many others.

Tom has shared his insights on various national and international network, cable, and Internet television programs such as CBS Evening News, NBC News, Yahoo Financially Fit,, India TV, Australia, and a host of others. He has been interviewed on many prestigious nationally syndicated radio shows, including the Dave Ramsey Show, Marketplace Money, and WABC.

Tom has been featured in numerous print magazines—such as Money magazine, Inc. Magazine, SUCCESS Magazine, Entrepreneur magazine, Fast Company magazine, More magazine, Epoca Magazine (Brazil’s largest weekly) and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine—and various online publications, including USA Today, CNN, MSN Money,,, and the Huffington Post. Tom is a frequent contributor to Business Insider,, and a few other media outlets.

National publicity has garnered international media attention for Tom and his Rich Habits research spanning 23 countries. Broadcast media, online publications, and television throughout Asia, the South Pacific, Europe, the United Kingdom, and Central and South America have shared his powerful message.

In an effort to help parents, grandparents, teachers and adults become success mentors to the younger generation, Tom released his second book, Rich Kids: How to Raise Our Children to be Happy and Successful in Life in 2014. This book was the self-help category winner of the 2015 New York Book Festival and Runner-up in the prestigious 2015 Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards Contest. In 2016 Tom released his third book, Change Your Habits, Change Your Life. This book provides the latest science on habit change as well as more of Tom's unique research on the specific habits that helped transform 177 ordinary individuals into self-made millionaires.

Besides being an author, Tom is also a CPA, CFP, and hold a master’s degree in taxation. As president of Cerefice and Company, CPAs, Tom heads one of the premier financial firms in New Jersey.
