Happy #MotivationMonday Pavlokians!
Today we’re kicking off the first email of a series of posts about changing habits. This week we’ll be diving deep into understanding the Habit Loop and bad habits — but to start, we’ll be focusing on mindset.
One of the things that recently changed my life was learning about the scarcity mentality vs abundance mentality.
Now if you’re like me, you may have at first thought that sounds a little “woo-woo.” But in my experience that couldn’t be further from the truth.
But before we discuss mindset, I want to talk about a couple things.
#1) As you might have noticed, I’ve also been doing a lot more video lately. I attribute much of this to my 30 day Facebook Live experiment, but the feedback has been fantastic so far. If you have any tips or suggestions on what videos I should make — please let me know.
Now back to scarcity vs abundance….
The scarcity mentality is that of zero-sum – the belief that for one person to succeed, another must fail. It’s the belief that there’s not enough to go around for everyone.
The abundance mentality is different: it is the belief that when you succeed, it actually helps the pie grow larger.
If you’re feeling stuck or not seeing the results you want in life, chances are good you have a scarcity mindset.
But fortunately the abundance mindset is something that can be developed.
As Henry Ford once said “whether you think you can, or think you can’t — you’re right.”
If you believe you’re stuck with bad habits forever… you’re right.
If you believe you can improve yourself through small changes over time… you’re right.
So today, spend sometime reflecting on your current mindset. Do you have a scarcity mindset? Or a mindset of abundance?
When working to improve your life (regardless of where you’re starting) you want to first work on developing an attitude and outlook that will increase your chances of success.
This won’t be easy, but putting in the work to improve your mindset can make all the difference.
Please commnet and let me know your thoughts 🙂 It’s actually me reading and replying, and I really want to meet you.
