I just got back from my friends wedding in Fiji and the tropical paradise got me thinking about a few things..
I'm talking about glass half empty, glass half full here people - which is it?
If it's half empty, it's time to do some mental rework.
WHY? Because it's effecting your wellbeing...BIG TIME - in ways you might not have even considered. It effects the way you handle stress, the way you learn, your happiness levels and can even effect your immune system.
Black Sheep DEFINITELY don't have time for that! So let's dig a little deeper.
Stephen Covey, who wrote one of the most famous productivity books going (7 Habits of Highly Effeictive Peeople) coined the abundance mindset and scarcity mindset. Sheep who are rocking an abundance mindset beleive that there is plenty of resources and success to go around while those who are sporting a scarcity mindset beleive that if someone else wins or is successful in a situation, that means you lose - not that we can ALL win.
It's pretty obvious which is the better one to adopt to get the most out of life. But how do you make the shift if you are dwelling on a glass half empty?
The best place to start is with your THOUGHTS.
Start taking NOTE of your thoughts and feelings and catch yourself when they are negative. Just by being aware of them, you can make a conscious effort to shift them.
Ask yourself "What thought would I need to think in order to shift my mindset from scarcity to abundance." Then simply replace one for the other.
For example - you might find yourself thinking "I don't have enough time to get everything done!" Instead, what if you thought - "By prorisiting what's really important to me and getting rid of what isn't, I'll have more than enough time for EVERYTHING!"
BOOM! Give that a try and see what doors start opening for you. You might be surprised...
