In this article, you will find a description of behaviors often exhibited by individuals who are stuck in a scarcity mindset. A scarcity mindset is when you perceive you don’t have enough in your life. Being aware of those destructive behaviors can be helpful to access abundance. Here are 5 signs that you are blocking the abundance in your life.
You Are Focusing on the Gaps
A common mistake that we tend to do is to place all our attention and energy on what is missing in our life. On the other hand, people that live an abundant life are natural at putting their energy on what they want to manifest. By switching your thoughts to what you want, you are painting a clear picture of what it is that you desire.
You Don’t Ask for Help
If it is difficult for you to say “yes” to someone who offers you help, you are telling the universe that you are not deserving of receiving from others. The same applies if you have a hard time asking for help. Showing too much independence can lead to blocking the flow of abundance.
You Are Uncomfortable With Compliments
Compliments are a form of receiving similar to asking for help. If you are uncomfortable with receiving compliments from others, you are demonstrating that receiving is difficult for you. This can automatically lead you to more scarcity.
You Feed a Sense of Urgency
It is demonstrated that people who feed a scarcity mindset will be more likely to focus on immediate “wants.” They feel the need for instant gratification, a sense of urgency that the need has to be met now. This type of behavior can be detrimental to one’s life and have a negative impact on one’s future.
You Envy Others
Envy is a feeling that attracts scarcity because we focus on what we don’t have. It can also lead to resentment toward some people and ruin relationships with friends and families. In order to shift to an abundance mindset, you need to start recognizing the good in your life and stop comparing yourself with others. Start by acknowledging what it is that you like about yourself, others or your life in the present moment.
