Lack mentality shows itself in a variety of ways. Being on a tight budget right now has reminded me of how important it is to be in the right mindset, despite the current seemingly limited circumstances.
For instance, maybe things are tight right now and you don’t feel that you can take yourself to your favorite local restaurant. Or maybe your car is ready for an oil change, but… Or, even bigger, you don’t want to leave the house because every time you do it costs money.
Don’t let yourself or your life get so small due to fear that you don’t have enough or you won’t have enough!
Remind yourself that everything is fluid- especially money! It comes and it goes, no matter how frugal you are! I don’t suggest crazy spending, I’m just saying don’t cut yourself off from the flow just because right now you are a bit fearful of an apparent lack.
And this can be financial lack, or lack of social contact or friends or loved ones. We must be generous with ourselves and we must believe in abundance! Maybe we do need to be frugal right now, but we need to not cut our own selves off from the flow of abundance due to fear of annihilation.
When I do this to myself, I recognize it, stop and tell myself that I deserve to eat well, or I deserve to have my car in top shape, or whatever it may be, and I go and do that.
And guess what? it NEVER causes me further financial distress. EVER! When I do this for myself, it’s like the Universe says “Ok, you believe you deserve this, let’s give you more”!
Money comes in from seemingly random places. Opportunities come in just now (after all this time and fret).
What you think about you bring about and if you are in lack mentality, that is what you are going to get more of.
Believe in yourself! And believe in the abundant nature of the Universe!
