"Never was anything great achieved without danger."
- Niccolo Machiavelli
The outcomes we receive are often a result of our beliefs and attitudes.
At some point, we all face difficulties that shape the way we view our experiences. Often, our biggest struggles shape the way we view the world. Many People who have lived in poverty, for instance, not only continue to fear financial difficulties throughout life, but they also fear the risks it takes to reach the pinnacles of financial success, not even realizing that most of the time it only takes a little more effort than others. This causes people to become comfortable with small achievements instead of going out and reaching their potential. That in itself is mental enslavement. It’s a self defeating attitude of not trusting your ability and limiting oneself by doing so.
When you focus on what you don't have, you forget what you do have.
Adopting a scarcity mindset limits your success. People who have a mindset of abundance, however, often see the possibilities within what they do and do not have access to. By embracing the possibilities within our circumstances, we are able to create, seize, and benefit from new opportunities.
