Scarcity is a confrontation between human needs and wants, in a world of limited resources. Because of this, not all of our goals can be pursued congruently and in order, so to obtain that which is scarce we must make trade-offs and sacrifices through prioritization.

Part of our problem in our quest for excellence is that we think that we live in a world abundant in resources and somewhere our salvation will appear if we just search hard enough. We confuse searching for resources with creating resources, and because of this we waste precious personal energy trying to find something that might not exist outside of ourselves.

This is a world of limited resources when we look outside of ourselves for answers. While the world might have limited resources; we do not. We are a species that is abundantly rich in resources that reside within, yet are rarely tapped into. In lieu of taking from within we expunge what is external and then are forced to make unnecessary sacrifices by prioritizing our wants and needs. There is no unnecessary sacrifice internally since we have all we need properly stored and waiting to be correctly utilized.

In order to tap into our personal resources we must understand the need to find the link between our traditions and our present life experiences. In doing this we connect our wisdom of the past with the present and create nowness. Creating the power of now allows us to not search for resources, but to maximize the resources that are both at our call and are necessary to excel. These resources, when acted upon now, are not limited nor are they prioritized; they are created and abundant.

Every resource we need to achieve lives in the magic of who we are today based off the knowledge of who we were yesterday. If we can create this link, if we can truly understand why we are in the situation we are in, we can then generate the answers we have been hopelessly wishing others would answer for us. We can finally become powerful enough to create the resources we need instead of searching for the same resources everyone else is taking from.

In creating now we can pursue our goals congruently and in order while not worrying if we will ever run out of our precious resources.
