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.”
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.
