Here is more on having a Mindset of Abundance:
First You Have to Believe
This principle of scarcity and abundance applies to every area, not just money.
A great example of this is the 4-minute-mile.
Back in 1954, Roger Bannister was the first person to ever run a full mile in less than four minutes. Prior to his achievement, it was accepted as impossible.
This is scarcity thinking. Why did everyone say it was impossible?
Because it hadn’t been done.
Well, along comes Roger Bannister to prove you are only limited by your thinking.
It only took 46 days after Roger broke the 4-minute-mile for the next person to do it. This time it was even faster than Roger.
Since this feat was accomplished, and the mindset barrier removed, over 1400+ athletes have now run a 4-minute-mile.
Think about that. It took only one person to show the world it could be done, and that one person was Roger Bannister.
There are millions of examples of this same thing happening throughout history.
And yet, we struggle to believe we can’t get a better job, create a meaningful family, retire wealthy, start a business, lose weight, etc.
It’s only true if we believe it and accept it.
Applying This Principle
Your goal may not be to run a 4-minute-mile, but hopefully you have lofty aspirations of your own.
Roger Bannister had to fight the sigma from others that he couldn’t run a mile that fast because no one ever had.
He was fighting an entire sport that was saying it couldn’t be done.
You may find that the person you likely have to fight is yourself.
If you have a lofty goal that you want to accomplish, the first step is persuading yourself that it can be done.
This must happen inside your mind before you can actually accomplish it in reality.
What is it you want to do?
Do you believe it is possible or are you doubting yourself?
What do you need to get out of your way to start believing?
I have found that the easiest way to break down this doubt is by starting with something small inside my main goal.
Once I see that it is not that scary or hard, I then build upon it.
As you gain momentum and confidence, you can accelerate this goal.
I want to encourage all of us to tackle our version of the 4-minute-mile.
It can be done, but we must first believe in ourselves.
