It’s Time To Prevent Yourself From Having A Scarcity Mindset.

It’s Time To Prevent Yourself From Having A Scarcity Mindset.

The scarcity mindset is based on a “There-is-not-enough-and-therefore-I-must-win” or “survival of the fittest” mentality.

To people with a scarcity mindset, life is a zero-sum game.

There is a degree of fear that if they win less, others will win more.

This win-lose or lose-lose attitude drives them to live a me-centered rather than a people-centered life.

They are overly-focused on meeting their own needs without due consideration to meeting other people’s needs.

They want as much things as possible, and they may even end up hoarding unnecessary things.

They are less willing to share their blessings with others and help them improve their lots.

Very often, they fight not only for their survival but they also aim to be the winner regardless of any negative impact on others and the environment around them.

With a scarcity mindset, they unconsciously limit themselves to what they can create in their mind, do with their lives, and achieve for themselves and for others.

Their inward-focus attitude becomes one of the roadblocks to creating success and wealth.

On a bigger scale, it is one of the root causes for poverty, conflicts and wars.
