They say it’s a dog eat dog world out there, where success is only gained through rough and tumble, gruelling competition. From childhood to adulthood we are convinced that we must compete against each other in order to snatch up limited opportunities. However, this mentality isn’t just untrue, but very well may be the belief that prevents us from growing.
The Abundance Mindset is contrary to this outdated mentality. It focuses on the idea that there is more than enough opportunity and chances for everyone, and places emphasis on remaining optimistic and open to new experiences. Adopting the Abundance Mindset means:
You see limitless opportunities - By opening yourself up to the potential of the world, you can embrace new opportunities as they come, and reject the belief that opportunities are scarce.
You are energetic and passionate - By letting go of the anxiety of “losing out” you will feel less emotionally fatigued, and instead focus on the things that empower you. With the ability to lull unnecessary fears, you are gifting yourself the ability to remain alert and adaptable.
You are grateful - By giving up on comparing yourself to others, you embrace the here and now. You take a moment to appreciate your current success and hard work, instead of fretting about the future or viewing other people’s successes as your failures.
You are in control - You don’t see yourself as a victim, or someone who is hopeless against the external forces. You’re the driver on the road to your own success, traveling to the endless possibilities that the world has waiting for you.
More and more entrepreneurs are adopting the abundance mindset as a way to grow their business. By embracing the idea that opportunities are not scarce, you will free yourself from the feeling of being emotionally drained, and controlled by the fear of “losing out”. With this new found energy you can turn your attention on the most important things to you: Building your business, and your happiness.
