A Scarcity Mindset
One day someone told me to stop thinking with a scarcity mindset. I was like, “What?!” As I paused to understand a word that I’ve never heard used in that context, he made me ponder that word as he continued to tell me that I could accomplish any goal with the right mindset. I really had to process if I was thinking little and not dreaming big enough.
Since the meaning of scarcity is being without or minimal quantities of a specific item, I had to process his statement for a quick minute. The brain is already predisposed to avoid taking risks. We as human beings do not like to operate outside of our comfort zone. Most are reluctant to be bold and do anything that we lack experience. That fear is that scarcity mindset.
A scarcity mindset keeps you in your comfort zone. It won’t allow you to dream big, aim high, or reach your potential. A scarcity mindset wants breakthroughs and triumphant battles, but doesn’t understand the sacrifices and dedication involved for that task. The scarcity mindset will keep you right where you are in life- and that is not what we want.
I wanted to take him serious, but it was almost insulting. Even though this individual makes his money by personal coaching and has credible experience with businesses and people, I couldn’t get defensive. I wasn’t sure if he was right or wrong in his analysis, but I wasn’t about to be proved that I couldn’t accomplish something I knew I was able to achieve.
Ditch the scarcity mindset and develop a positive and determined mentality. You’ll need that positive mindset because you in an ever-changing time that requires you to evolve. Nothing in life is for free, nor will it be given to you. Once you unsubscribe from that notion, you’ll be free from living without a debilitating leash keeping you from your dreams.
Are you ready to boost out of your cannon of scarcity?
I write this because my business is personal because this service is for the advancement of all humanity. My failures and successes are for your gain. No strings attached.
