After several years of studying high-powered people, I’ve come to a conclusion: We live in scarcity because we believe in scarcity.
I’m sure of it! Most of us live in a place of desperation! We think we have to settle for less happiness because we believe there is a lack of happiness in the world. We settle for a less fulfilling job because we believe there aren’t enough good jobs out there. We settle for a mediocre connection in our marriage because we believe there is a lack of awesome marriages and, well, hey—not everyone gets to have one.
Why do we think this way? Seriously, does that mindset really hold up to scrutiny?
The truth is, the world is a place of abundance.
What you believe about the world is what’s going to create the world around you. So if you believe that the world is a place of scarcity, that is going to be reflected in your job, your relationships and even your own energy! But fortunately, the opposite is true too! Your insides create your outsides.
So many of us go through lives of desperation because we think the world demands desperation! In reality, we are the ones demanding desperation from ourselves! But once we open ourselves up to a world of abundance where we can give ourselves what we need without fear, we’ll realize that we’ve been victims of our own perspectives.
Your heart is drawn to abundance, and once you stop sabotaging that connection, you won’t believe what waits for you on the other side.
I get into this whole idea on one of my Weekly Coaching Calls, and what’s even better? I tell you how to get over the idea of scarcity.
Stop settling for a life of scarcity. Start giving your heart exactly what it wants. There is more than enough for you and everyone else in the world. All you’ve got to do is stop getting in your own way and start giving yourself the life you want!
