Scarcity mindset or scarcity mentality in simplest terms is the belief that you will never be or have enough –whether its money, food, emotions —and as a result, you are always feeling like you lack. When we are at a position of lack, our minds are actually less efficient. A mind that believes there is less has less capacity for problem-solving, less time to do other things in life, less time for relationships, less time for work. Having a scarcity mentality makes us more concerned over a few elements in our lives resulting in a lack of room for other things in the periphery. To reduce feelings of scarcity, we can give ourselves some slack time —do not pack days too tightly that there is no time for family events, no time for the sweetheart, no time to enjoy an ice cream cone in the park or take care of unaccounted for eventualities like a car breakdown. How to create slack time? By intentionally keeping pockets of unaccounted-for time in our calendar…sort of ‘having a meeting with myself’ entry. By the intentionality alone, we are messaging ourselves that ‘yes, I am enough, and I am worthwhile’
Did you your best today to be happy, content, and thankful for all that you are and have?
Reflection in Action:
Eat a bowl of your favorite ice cream, laugh with a friend, do arts & crafts. Enjoy the simple things which mean much
