You may have realized that your mindset can both drastically affect the outcome of something and can change your life. It’s been proven that your mindset, or the way you think about yourself and the world around you, can change the way you approach learning as well as how you handle stress or unforeseen circumstances. It can affect how you chase down success or how resilient you are. It can even affect how your immune system performs.


In 1988 Stephen Covey, in his book The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, coined the term abundance mindset. This mindset is defined by the “concept in which a person believes there are enough resources and successes to share with others.” 


Unfortunately, not everyone adopts or has this mentality. Some people have what is termed a scarcity mentality.


Scarcity is the opposite of abundance. Knowing which one you most often react from can make the difference in how you look at life and what you have in life.


The scarcity mentality is when someone believes that, if someone else wins, you automatically lose. Having an abundance mindset means you see the world as having an infinite number of possibilities: a world filled with opportunities.


When you live from a place of abundance, you feel gratitude for what you already have, are aware and constantly pursuing new opportunities in every area of your life, and give to others freely.


Those who live with a scarcity mentality can change if they are willing. Throughout this guide there are tips on how to develop an abundance mindset. It can be easier than you think or as hard as you want to make it.

If you find you have a scarcity mindset in some area of your life, you can flip the script to one of abundance. For example, with daily practice, you can shift from being envious of others to being inspired by their success.


Bad things do happen in life. While you can’t control what happens in every situation, you can control how you react. You can shift your thinking and identify the positives that result from the event. When you are facing challenging times, it’s important that you actively choose to focus on the positive aspects. When you learn to control and shift your mindset to abundance, as needed, you begin to recognize and experience more abundance and possibility.
