Your mind is like an eye with which you see the world around you. The way you view the world is how you react to it and it can either be positive or negative.
Ultimately, your mindset and attitude towards the world can affect the things you get from the world. Your expectation from the world will determine the opportunities and results you get as well.
Like a famous saying that you can either choose to see a half-filled glass as half full or half empty, your perception about the world is very important
You can choose to see the world from a positive or negative lens, with optimism or pessimism.
There are two mindsets a person can have; an abundance mindset or a scarcity mindset.
A person with an abundance mindset will see the world in a positive light and will be hopeful and positive about life’s events and outcome. This person will also be humane and have an unselfish outlook towards life
A person with a scarcity mindset, on the other hand, will be selfish, negative, and will see life as unfair no matter what happens to them. This kind of person is most likely to always feel victimized and always want to cheat people out of many things.
It goes without saying that an abundance mindset is the best and healthiest mindset to have. It has far-reaching benefits into the life of a person who maintains this mindset.
Let us compare life from an abundance mindset with a scarcity mindset
Abundance VS Scarcity mindset.
For a person with an abundance mindset, everything is possible, good things will come eventually if you work hard and remain patient. An abundant life is easy with an abundance mindset.
A person with a scarcity mindset will see difficulties, limitations, and impossibilities. This person believes that life is hard and success is out of reach. A person with a scarcity mindset might give up trying hard and naturally accept defeat and negativity
An abundance mindset believes that there is enough in the world for everyone. Whether in the corporate world or as it concerns relationship, money, or the general society, an abundance mindset sees sufficiency.
A scarcity mindset, on the other hand, believes that everything is limited and that there is a competition to gain or achieve anything in life. This person constantly feels like he is battling with someone else for everything and he must win
A person with an abundance mindset is calm and optimistic about everything. This person believes that possibilities are endless and the world has everything they could ever need. A person with an abundance mindset sees no reason for strife and anxiety but would rather relax and bask in positivity
A person with a scarcity mindset is pessimistic and restless. This person is constantly afraid that the world is a battleground and he should always be fighting. A scarcity mindset tells you that you have your guard yourself and all the things you own jealously because some persons want to take it away.
A person with an abundance mindset is more open to taking risks as he sees it as an opportunity to achieve more success. For this person, the greater the risk the larger the success. Someone with an abundant mindset is bold and fearless
A person with a scarcity mindset is not willing to take any risks because he believes he will lose everything. This person also doesn’t believe that taking risks will lead to great success; they see it as an avenue to lose the little they have
An abundance mindset finds more opportunities. When you constantly seek greater possibilities, they open up for you and bring blessings with them. Just as you only see what you are looking out for, an abundance mindset will only see opportunities
A person with a scarcity mindset will not see opportunities even if they are right in front of them. Naturally, when you think something does not exist, you fail to see it. It is the same thing for opportunities. If you think they are scarce, they will be scarce.
- It is important to find out how you view the world. Do you look from the lens of abundance or scarcity?
- If you have a scarcity mindset you must change how you perceive the world and start seeing things from an abundance point of view.
- Convince yourself that there are a lot of opportunities, blessings, and resources to go around. Don’t hold tightly to what you have. Give to others and see how things will come back to you.
- Develop an abundance mindset and live an abundant life!
