Abundance Mentality Vs. Scarcity Mindset

Abundance Mentality Vs. Scarcity Mindset, which do you posses?

When you have a abundance mentality the whole world is open to you. When you live with a scarcity mindset the world is a dark and fearful place. Daffy Duck below is a perfect example of the scarcity mindset.





Years ago I went school for personal training with this guy Joe. He was and is a great guy. Well every time I’d run into him we’d talk you know  the normal stuff. Any time we talked shop though he’d always clam up on specifics. I knew it was this scarcity mindset afraid he would give something away that would allow some one else to take from him.

Like I said I considered Joe a friend. So I found this attitude both a little funny, sad, and hurtful all at the same time. I feel if he would of had a abundance mentality he would have understood their are people who would of been working to build him up, not just tear him down.


The problem is when you have a scarcity mindset that is all your ever able to see. We can’t go through life peering into the shadows all the time.

If you do the first time you look into the light you’ll be blinded. I’m not saying you should walk through life with blinders on and every thing is going to peachy and great.

What I am saying is a life of fear is no life at all.

You know a couple years later just at the same time I was getting into internet network marketing Joe looked me up. It turns out he was doing some network marketing of his own, coincidence, maybe. So we stay in touch and there is a huge change in his personality for the better. Networking has really opened him up and has allowed his guard to come down.

He’s doing well with his network marketing business and I would attribute a large part of this to his new found abundance mentality. He’s reaching his goals by helping others to reach theirs.

The only way I’m going to achieve my goal of being a stay at home dad is by helping others achieve their goals. Here is one of my favorite quotes-

“You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.”
Zig Ziglar

Make one of your goals  the abundance mentality for 2012 if you don’t already it.

I think one of the first things I’ll do for 2012 is to reaffirm my abundance mentality.

About Dave Friant

Family man, blue collar worker, and former Fitness Instructor seeking to reinvigorate my passion for health and wellness via the internet and marketing myself on-line. Loving the journey and hoping some you will take it with me.

So I failed miserably at getting back into fitness, but something else happened. I learned I really love marketing on line and I'm getting good at it. The ability produce a income from the internet is crazy easy.

Next step good bye J.O.B and then I'll actually have the time to reboot that fitness thing. We only fail when we quit.


  1. It seems we all have been inspired about positive mindsets or the lack thereof lately :)

    If we always hide in the shadows, we will miss out on the best parts of life.

    It always amazes me when the people worried about people stealing their downlines are the same ones that would try to steal yours.

    Usually when people are scared of something it is either because they are living in fear from past events or living in guilt because they do the same things to others.

    Network Marketing has a way of bringing out the best in people though there are some that it brings out the worst in them. In the end we can all choose how whether we are going to live in fear or abundantly.
