I remember when I first started my business five years ago I would see people in the industry talking about an abundance mindset, how you should share as much as possible, and give things away for free.
I couldn’t quite wrap my head around giving content away for free.
“What if someone copies my idea?”
“What if I give my best stuff away for free and then I have nothing left to say???”
All of the questions and reservations imaginable would come up.
I had the ultimate scarcity mindset!
Now being a Positive Psychologist and Mindset Boss I knew this wasn’t going to get me far…
But I just didn’t know how to stop it!!
I was worried about money, worried about copyright, worried about running out of content!
But as soon as I started to give freely, I began to receive in abundance.
And its because I chose to have an abundance mindset.
Think about it as if you’re going to the ice cream store…
You see a lot of different flavours in the cabinet, but you don’t know which one to choose.
Some of them you’ve tried before, others you don’t even recognise the name.
The lady behind the counter asks you to try them, and because you try them and like them, you decide to buy.
Business works off exactly the same principle.
There is soooooo much out there in the marketplace right now – and it can be difficult to make a choice.
If you’re committed to sharing awesome free content, though, you will really stand out from the crowd.
I always make it my mission to give as much awesome free content as I can.
This not only benefits my audience, but it makes me feel good, and benefits my business too.
Here’s three things you can do to build your abundance mindset.
1. Notice abundance all around you
I absolutely love to turn this in to a fun game. Where can you notice abundance all around you??? I notice abundance in the leaves on the trees, in the blades of grass, in my vitamin cupboard, even in my cutlery drawer! I have lots of these things, and when you put your attention on the things you have a lot of, the things you have a lot of start to expand.
Notice where you have a lot of love around you, a lot of support, positive energy, as well as material things. Show gratitude for the things you do have, and give thanks for every cent. When you focus on what you do have it helps your abundance mindset to grow stronger.
2. Share more free content to boost your abundance mindset
Start Now!! Create your first optin page or create a facebook post with your thoughts. Be known for who you are and the value you bring. The sooner you start, the sooner your reach and influence will grow.
Never be fearful over sharing an idea… you will always be supplied with more. When you share you allow power to be added to your ideas and it helps you process so you can receive more.
It might be a Facebook live or a periscope you choose to share your thoughts through, or a blog, or a freebie download. The medium doesn’t matter, just take action on sharing and you’ll see how much fun you can have and how good it feels!
3. Remind yourself that what you give you shall receive
If you lead with scarcity and make this your focus, then guess what? You’re going to receive more scarcity. When you give you shall receive, so focus on where you can give something even if it is something small. It might be money, or a smile, or a gift. The more you can get comfortable with giving things away, the more abundance will flow to you.
Give it a go!
Treat your business like it’s ice cream, and I promise you’ll get more growth.
