Essentials Reasons Why Abundance Thinking Beats Shortage Mentality

  1. Great vision takes you further. People with a shortage mentality have limited vision. They can’t see opportunities that abundance thinkers see. And those other opportunities may be far better than the win/lose issue shortage thinkers are obsessing over right now.

  2. Empowering attitude. When you think of limitations and shortages, it limits your mindset. Oh you may work hard to beat out someone else right now. Yet you won’t be thinking I can see many possibilities and do anything I try.

  3. Creating the future. We often picture entrepreneurs when think of abundance thinkers. Instead of trying to beat out someone for a conventional job, they create the new opportunity.

  4. Alternate Paths. Even if you are not an entrepreneur, you can unearth and lead others around obstacles with an abundance mindset. Leaders and managers who does this inspire everyone to think creatively and solve problems in new ways. This leads morale and produces far better results!

  5. And above all …

  6. It always feels good! Although we don’t talk about feelings much in business, they matter. Human beings like to feel good. And when you live and work with an “anything is possible” mindset, it feels far better than win/lose. This is an essential reason why abundance thinking keeps us going forward. We like the way it feels!
