"The waste of plenty is the resource of scarcity." Thomas Love Peacock
Far too many people wander through life clinging to a scarcity mindset; a limitation dominated frame of mind where they only see limited opportunity, where they believe that there's only so much to go around - and that's it. Rather than seeing that there's way more than enough for everyone to enjoy, they see lack. Instead of seeing surplus, they see shortage. Instead of seeing opportunity, they see limitations.
After awhile, all they see is scarcity - and it scares them to death.
This scarcity way of thinking stifles our creativity, squelches out enthusiasm and greatly diminishes our zeal for living. We start worrying about having enough, about getting our fair share. We start thinking that theres just so much good stuff in the cookie jar. And if we don't somehow grab what we need as quickly as possible, someone else will. And we will be left holding an empty bag.
"When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you." Lao Tzu
A scarcity state of mind needlessly limits virtually everything we do. It hinders our vision. It hampers our motivation. It prevents us from seeing the abundance all around us. It holds us back, slows us down and keeps us from giving life our very best shot. And it has no place in a winner's life.
When we open our minds, our eyes and our hearts to possibility, we open ourselves to a world of opportunity. Instead of seeing lack, we see abundance everywhere we look. We discover a world that is ready to take us anywhere we have ever dreamed of going. A world where theres plenty to go around, plenty for all of us to enjoy; a world where everything is indeed possible.
"If there is but little water in the stream, it is the fault, not of the channel, but of the source." St. Jerome
Instead of looking at what we don't presently have or what we supposedly cannot do, we need to focus our full attention on making the most of what we have right now. And make no mistake about it; we have more than we'll ever need.
Instead of placing limitations on ourselves, we need to go get the lives we want. And go get them without limitations. When we finally set ourselves free to just be ourselves, we discover that there's no limit on what we can create. No limit on what we can produce. No limit on what we can build, craft, construct and manufacture.
NO LIMITS WHATSOEVER!
"There's no scarcity of opportunity to make a living at what you love. There is only a scarcity of resolve to make it happen." Wayne Dyer
Instead of thinking you can't, why don't you turn things around start thinking you can and see what happens? You may be pleasantly surprised to see just how much you can accomplish when you rid yourself of that scarcity mindset. Rather than worrying you don't have enough, why don't you take what you've got and play it for all it's worth? When you do, you'll uncover talents and abilities you never knew you had. And you'll discover what true happiness is all about.
This is your life. This is your chance. This is your opportunity to live the life you have imagined. You need to start chasing what you love with unlimited, unbridled passion, going for it with everything youve got. Forget about the so-called limitations, scarcity and lack others see daily. Zero in on what you want to achieve, decide that the life you desire will be yours - and then get busy living it every day for the rest of your life.
The Bottom Line: When you adopt a no limitations approach to living, there's no limit on what you can do.
