Abundance or Scarcity: There is enough for everyone


You breathe in. You breathe out.

I breathe in. I breathe out.

We both need oxygen to survive.

Would you worry that there would not be enough oxygen for both of us? Of course not, air is abundant.

Abundance mentality is the paradigm that says there is plenty out there and enough to spare for everybody.

It results in sharing of prestige, of recognition, of profits, of decision making.

It opens possibilities, options, alternatives, and creativity.

Typically, the abundance mentality focuses on the long term.

It involves a deep understanding that just because you do not get to have something right now does not mean you will not be able to have it later.

There is no need for the stampede to get to be the first in line.

Skipping a party right now does not mean you will never be able to have a good time again.

Someone else getting a raise or promotion at work does not mean you will never get a raise or promotion.

Another person finding a nice relationship is not a source of jealousy, it is a source of genuine happiness for that person, because you know that person’s happiness does not take anything away from you.

Abundance mentality mean you become less paranoid and too much money does not give you itchy hands.

Something will come around. It always does.

I think the world can be a better place should all the people across nations adopt the abundance mentality mindset.

Nature provides for all but scarce mentality mindsets makes it difficult for fellow inhabitants.

There is enough for everyone.

Poverty is created by leaders who have scarcity mentality.

Leaders who only think of themselves, their own followers, countries only at the expense of other nationalities.

We celebrate our leaders because they are doing very well for us and only us, we are oblivious to the sufferings of people in other countries.

Matured leaders are leaders who make decisions for the greater good of the world, not necessarily of the people they are leading.

Scarcity mentality says as long as we are happy, that is what matters.

Abundance mentality is about connecting to people, doing work that truly matters, bringing remarkable change.
