SORT BY Relevancy
in Self Help
People are highly motivated by the thought that they might lose out on something. When humans don't have enough of something, that fact dominates our consciousness….or the perceived lack of something.
Greed shows up when there’s an assumption of lack…or scarcity. Eldar Shafir writes, “it appears that poverty (or poverty of mind) itself reduces cognitive capacity. We suggest that this is because poverty-related concerns consume mental resources, leaving less for other tasks. Shafir calls this problem bandwidth poverty. When you're bandwidth poor, you're thinking about how to pay for food and make rent today — and it's almost impossible to think about the future.”
Michael Neill - The scarcer the resource, the more we are willing to give up in order to get it; the more common the resource, the less we are willing to give up in order to get it.
The FEAR of not having enough is a critical form of leverage to settle for less than God’s best.
Maggie Haydock shares a familiar story with a twist:
Once upon a time there were three little pigs. When they turned 18, the little pigs left home to seek their fortune.
Their first priority was finding shelter. The first pig built a house out of straw that he found scattered on the ground. The second pig built a house out of sticks that he scavenged from the woods....

What would you do if you knew you couldn't fail? Or better yet, what would you set out to do if you knew you had all the tools and resouces availale to you to succeed?
Everyday we fight the most destructive and conniving force ever known to man...the ego. It's unseen by the naked eye, untraceable by any means of human perception and works in the shadows without us even knowing it's influence.
Within the ego-mind we find a glitch. It's the king of all limiting beliefs- the scarcity mindset!
This is what fuels our desire to play small. Scarcity drives us to sabotage ourselves in the most incredible opportunites. It's a force of destruction if we let it rule our life.
If you don't think you have scarcity mindset, review the following questions:
Do you ever feel less than capable to follow through?
Do you feel you don't have enough energy to do what you want in life?
Do you feel money is a scarce commodity?
Do you feel the world is just the way it is and you have no control over your experience in it?
Do you struggle to find a place where you fit in or feel like you can be yourself?
I could go on but basically, the point is this with any limit in our system of beliefs that determines what we can or cannot do, if we fell there are things in life we'll never be able to do or accomplish, if we wish for something that we feel will always be out of reach, then we have a scarcity mindset.
Remember the universe works on abundance, not limits. When you have a toxic undercurrent shaping your thoughts, you are limited to experiencing life through those limits and left to suffer and struggle along the path. The universe wants ease and grace for you!! During this episode I'm going to show you 5 key factors in shifting your mindset from scarcity to abundance!
FOOD WARS WATER WARS
Experts predict that in the very near future, wars will be fought over basic resources such as food and water. This is nothing new as such wars occurred as early as 4500 years ago in Mesopotamia. But with a continued population explosion on planet Earth food and water scarcity will reach dangerous proportions as early as 2030. Currently 12% of the world's population is malnourished as a handful of multinational corporations cornor the market on food producion and access to potable water. And you wouldn't believe how much food is wasted on a daily basis.

True, it is: we find ourselves living in the most auspicious of times, an era in which advanced scientific minds and other quantum theorists have pretty much proven the unity of all things. True it is: scientists give much better demonstrations than mystics! However undeniable, these proofs are yet to assist the individual or the collective to “love the neighbor as ourselves,” stop the wars and find their fulfillment as they bless the planet’s evolution. What’s missing? What aren’t we ready to accept the truth that will change our life? Why believing in scarcity and giving our power to fear – indeed False Evidence Appearing Real?
Greek philosophers have given us a clue, while revealing the triple gates of the Good, the True and the Beautiful, meant to open the soul to the Eternal. The gate of the Good is opened by Religion; the gate of the True, by Science, and the gate of the Beautiful, by Art: Religion, Science and Art are across cultures the foundation of Wisdom Teachings. Whereas Science is certainly fulfilling its role of demonstrating the True (e.g.; e=mc2), it appears that Religion is failing its mandate of revealing the Good!
The very fact that we would have a plural for the word “religion” does imply comparisons (good vs. bad): right there, this is where we miss the mark! It is then not so surprising that various religious institutions would promote, in subtle and not so subtle ways, a deep investment in the illusion of separation; e.g. ‘our “God” is better than your “God,” and if you don’t convert to our faith, you’ll go to Hell!’ Because Religion refuses to grow up, Science cannot come into its maturity. Both sides now are acting as a stubborn ostrich with its head conveniently planted in the ground, not wanting to really understand what is at stake for the other or the whole.

That exact discussion – I am what I see created – goes to the core of Language & Syncing, the page we are about to explore. That form of synchronicity is addressed by psycho-energetic sciences that speak of the indivisibility of the observer and the observed: not only am I what I see, but there is no way for me to see anything else but who I think I am!
That is a huge statement, and totally pertinent to the work of transformation. Here is what we mean: what will it take, when we’re having financial problems, to actually see ourselves out of scarcity? Here is another example: we may have “tried” to lose weight, moving from one diet to another. Yet, how successful can we be when we can only see a distorted body image? Seeing is believing and believing is how we create our own personal reality: the reality of someone lacking money or of someone incapable to lose weight! During all that time, there is a parallel universe that hosts the exact version of us – the “change we wish to see.”
Thus the invitation – to change our mind, our beliefs, i.e.; what we think and thus “sync,” so that the results of our communication aligns with what we say we want. XPR challenges us to take back our projections, starting and ending with THE greatest projection of all – this of a “Creator God,” especially when we make “Him” a punishing one! That’s a big step and an ultimate step! Yet, how else but on a path that is the psychological decoding of the Judeo-Christian scriptures can we take that ultimate step?

WE ARE BLESSED!
One simple phrase had massive impact on me!
We are truly blessed to be alive!
To have the resources and opportunities that we have!
But do we live our life as such?
We have been trained to live in scarcity.
We are blessed, this one phrase to me today had a life lesson for me.
How would I treat my body, if I knew it was a blessing?
How would I treat God if I knew he was a blessing?
How would I treat my spouse or kids if I knew they were a blessing?
How would I run my business if I knew it was a blessing?
When we see life as a blessing we will treat it as such!
It is so hard for the common man/woman to live a life of abundance.
Yet if we lived a life knowing we were blessed, would we waste it?
Or would we
Live every day like it was a blessing?
No more bad days, no more stress, and just create pure abundance in our lives!

In this day of flash-and-dash swagger and over-inflated egos, it's easy to succumb to a "keeping up with the Joneses" mentality. But at what cost? It's imperative for leaders to stay driven. Stay focused. Keep their foot on the gas pedal.
But then there's another psychology. The psychology of humility. It's easy to mistake humility for weakness, subordination..even scarcity. But NOTHING could be further from the truth.
Listen in as JT gives you the straight scoop on how humility can make you a STRONGER, more effective leader in business and life.

lIVE CHAT: Black Friday Sales, Turkey Thanks Giving Now Christmas
As with Native traditions in America, celebrations - complete with merrymaking and feasting - in England and throughout Europe after a successful crop are as ancient as the harvest-time itself. In 1621, when their labors were rewarded with a bountiful harvest after a year of sickness and scarcity, the Pilgrims gave thanks to God and celebrated His bounty in the Harvest Home tradition with feasting and sport (recreation). To these people of strong Christian faith, this was not merely a revel; it was also a joyous outpouring of gratitude.
If there is one day each year when food and family take center stage, it is Thanksgiving. It is a holiday about “going home” with all the emotional content those two words imply. The Sunday following Thanksgiving is always the busiest travel day of the year in the United States. Each day of the long Thanksgiving weekend, more than 10 million people take to the skies. Another 40 million Americans drive 100 miles or more to have Thanksgiving dinner. And the nation’s railways teem with travelers going home for the holiday.
Despite modern-age turmoil—and perhaps, even more so, because of it—gathering together in grateful appreciation for a Thanksgiving celebration with friends and family is a deeply meaningful and comforting annual ritual to most Americans. The need to connect with loved ones and to express our gratitude is at the heart of all this feasting, prayerful thanks, recreation, and nostalgia for a simpler time. And somewhere in the bustling activity of every November's Thanksgiving is the abiding National memory of a moment in Plymouth, nearly 400 years ago, when two distinct cultures, on the brink of profound and irrevocable change, shared an autumn feast.
You know the phrase, it takes money to make money? WRONG! It takes an abundance mindset to make money! In the Christian Wealth Building Club, there is no prosperity gospel here, just the gospel and prosperity.
I believe Christians have a mandate to be profitable!
Matthew 25:26-27 "“But the master replied, ‘You wicked and lazy servant! If you knew I harvested crops I didn’t plant and gathered crops I didn’t cultivate, why didn’t you deposit my money in the bank? At least I could have gotten some interest on it.’" (NLT)
How many of you have blown $20 or more at a fast food joint? What if you used that money to buy an ounce of silver instead?
Think Real Estate is a good investment but the down payment, credit score, monthly payment, and property management seem overwhelming? Start smaller. Diamonds, gold, silver. Less money to acquire the tangible asset, easier to hold, easier to liquidate.
Of course, Real Estate is a good investment too, if done wisely. All the strategies that lead to the Real Estate Bubble are back in full force. What if you learned how to navigate buying and financing decisions the right way?
Love to trade online? Dabbler? Pretty serious? What is your preference? Currency or Futures? Considered it but not sure what to do or who to trust? Entry and exit of the market and picks makes a huge difference to your outcomes.
DIVERSIFICATION! Like minded Christians, let's unite and multiply what God gave us to manage!
