Adopting An Abundance Mindset and Leaving Behind the Scarcity Mindset in 2022

What is the alternative?

Mindset Matters.

Scarcity VS. Abundance

  • Nothing is enough. They hoard thoughts, things, and ideas.
  • They are unlikely to share wisdom, trusted contacts, and empathy.
  • Don’t trust others often and find it challenging to build new relationships.
  • Resent competitors, and don’t network them. They believe there isn’t enough room in the industry for both of them.
  • Try to get by with as little effort, investment, and resources as possible.
  • Are pessimistic thinkers
  • Have a negative mindset and believe that as difficult as things have been, it’s about to worsen.
  • Avoid taking risks and are self-limiting.
  • Think they are correct, and everyone else is wrong.
  • Believe there’s plenty of room for competition, sharing ideas, and networking.
  • Share their wisdom, trusted contacts, and empathy with others.
  • Trust first and build relationships with ease.
  • Welcome competition, love to network and learn from others, and are not afraid of co-existing in the industry together.
  • Be ready to go the distance and do whatever it takes for success. This usually means spending time, money, and energy.
  • Are optimistic about the future, believing the best is yet to come.
  • Embrace risks and are willing to try new things.
  • Have a heart of gratitude.
