COMPETITION OR ABUNDANCE
Where are you?
A scarcity mentality is the state where thoughts of rivalry originate. If you believe that there is not enough to go around, you'll attempt to rush to take something from somebody else. This is a typical business mindset. Competition is the name of the game, or so we believe. There Is enough to go around!! Relax...
It feels like everybody thinks that competition is the only way you'll get what you need. People don't realize that by not participating in competition they'd become independent and free, as their natural state ought to be. When you recognize that competition isn't always beneficial and not to try to gain something at other people’s expense, you will little by little come into the abundance mentality.
You will begin to see you're able to get everything you think of, and this assures you that there will always be more than enough. I was raised in a very competitive family. It wasn't healthy. While competition is good in certain areas such as sports -- not so great in others. It fosters resentments, separates people.
If you are in scarcity mentality and wish to change it, use a daily affirmation. Here are some to try on -- see what resonates for you.
I see abundance everywhere.
There's more than enough resources everybody.
It is also helpful to train your eyes to see what you want and not dwell on what you don't want. If you wish to eliminate the thoughts of scarcity, direct your attention to abundance. Look at lush nature, luxury cars, bird song, positive people -- whatever you affiliate with abundance. There are a lot of wealth symbols, it only depends which symbols you identify with abundance. Nature, new gadgets or lavish clothes. It's your perception. When you train your eyes to center on such things your thinking will begin to shift as you no longer see manifestations of lack or limitation. As you begin to center on abundance, you will be more able to produce the thoughts of abundance. These thoughts will manifest in your life bringing in everything you deeply thought about. The things that hold an emotional charge for you. An abundance mindset enables you to know there are constantly new chances and opportunities.
This releases pressure you usually feel when you have a scarcity mindset that makes you believe you only have this shot right now. If you have a scarcity mindset then you may take things too seriously. That was me and the abundance mindset enabled me to relax more.
P.S. Tell me what your ideas are about abundance vs competition.
