When we believe there is not enough, that resources are scarce, then we accept that some will have what they need and some will not.
We rationalize that someone is destined to end up with the short end of the stick.
Actually, we rationalize that we will end up with the short end of the stick…
In the last post of this series, we conquered the limiting belief that our past controls our future. This post steps even farther out of our past and takes a look at our current circumstances. Do you ever feel like there is something you wish to accomplish, but that your resources are too limited?
If so, this way of thinking assumes that there are only a limited number of resources and options in the world. It operates out of what is called a “scarcity” mentality, which is the belief that there are only so many resources in the world and that most of these resources have already been taken up by others.
This leads us to assume that there aren’t enough resources for us to do what we want to do.
We think to ourselves, “I don’t have enough [time, money, connections, etc.] to achieve what I want to achieve.”
How does this statement make you feel?
Write about it in your journal. Is this what you really believe about the state of your life? Or do you have a kinder, gentler view of the world, your abilities, and your place in it? Share.
Too many of us make the assumption that we are lacking in the resources and options we need, so we fail to take any action. Instead of moving forward, we sit still/ stuck, marking time, and spinning our wheels. We think that in order to take action, we need to have more options at our disposal, such as more time, money, or help from others.
Now let’s rewrite this limiting belief with a set of empowering beliefs and rewire our thinking.
Let’s move away from- “I don’t have enough resources.”
To more Empowering Beliefs, like:
● “The universe is full of abundant resources.”
● “There is more than enough to go around.”
● “I am able to create more of what I focus on.”
You know the drill…
Spend some time thinking and writing, and next week, we will flesh this out with an action plan.
