How to Create an Abundance Mentality

1. Don’t worry so much. YWith an abundance mentality you don’t have to worry so much. If you think about it as abundance you don’t worry about a competitor getting new clients, you don’t judge others who are successful, and you don’t compare yourself to others who are doing better than you. 

2. Acknowledge and appreciate others’ accomplishments. If you acknowledge the success of others you know their success doesn’t take anything away from your hard work. Don’t be one of those people who troll on those who are successful. 

3. Get organized. Know where you’re going. Create a bucket list. Set SMART goals. Because if you don’t have those things then you are just chasing your tail. All of these little steps of Live Your List help you have an abundance mentality so you can know there is plenty of opportunities in this world. If nothing else you know where you are going and you can invite others to come with you.

4. Create “Win/Win” situations. In Seven Habits by Dr. Covey, the author talks about putting yourself in a position to win by giving others an opportunity to win. The more often you try to get others to win, the more often you will win.
