Last while while attending to one of several talks at Lisbon Web Summit, someone was talking about the change of a scarcity to an abundance mindset. I have been thinking about this for a couple of days now and, while at first it seems a kind of contrarian logic, it really makes much sense.
On one hand, it’s about the way you face life – if you keep thinking this is the last chance, the last opportunity, the only something there is, you might start to believe that and disregard that the future might be even brighter and merrier. But, there is more to it because when you think with an abundance mindset you open yourself more to what might come. Also, that abundance, will lead you to share more and from sharing, greater and bigger things can come.
Among runners there is recurrent a saying “if you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together”, implying that sharing some ordeal will make it more likely to be conquered. Must keep this in my head more often.
