Scarcity vs. Abundance

  • Category: Authority Mindset

Global pandemic, yoyo stock markets, clients pausing big projects—it feels safer right now to move cautiously.

And yet an over abundance of caution can lead you to some bad long-term decisions.

Like taking clients who aren’t the best fit because you’re worried. Like delaying critical investments in your learning or your business. Like deciding to hold off on the one market push that may break you into a new league.

How do you know when you’re being logically cautious vs. terribly short-sighted?

Take a look at your mindset.

If you know deep in your gut that this is not a zero sum game, you’ll keep making smart decisions that reinforce an abundance mindset (check out David C. Baker’s most excellent rant on this here).

That doesn’t mean you don’t still move strategically—it means you don’t let fear pilot the boat.

Because the second you buy into a scarcity worldview, you start curbing your possibilities: making “safe” decisions that will keep you bound to where you already are while others steam ahead.

Which do you choose?
