FINANCIAL FRIDAY: Overcoming Money Scarcity

(VIDEO) Financial Friday is our four-part series that addresses the most common myths and misconceptions around money. This week, Neale and fitness guru Drew Canole tackle an age-old bugaboo: people whose money mindset is rooted in scarcity.

“Most people are deeply scripted in what I call the Scarcity Mentality. They see life as having only so much, as though there were only one pie out there. And if someone were to get a big piece of the pie, it would mean less for everyone else.” – Stephen Covey

Do you feel your money mindset is rooted in a feeling of scarcity? Here are some signs that you may be struggling with this:

  • You believe situations are permanent (i.e. “…that’s just the way it is”)
  • Your thoughts and words are full of scarcity vocabulary (i.e. “I don’t have enough money”, “I can’t do this”, “there’s never enough”)
  • You are constantly in a state of envy
  • You are rarely generous
  • You have a hard time controlling your spending

Money scarcity is a fear that came from when you were a small child. For some reason when you were little, you picked up the mindset or the energy of there not being enough, of having to scrimp and save, of never being able to have what you wanted, etc. Or maybe there was a heavy layer of guilt around money you DID spend or you were made to feel like a burden on your family for costing them money.
