Shifting out of Scarcity Mindset


Don’t you just love the satisfying feeling of getting things checked off on your list?

In that split moment of celebration, you feel the dopamine high, an opening and uplifting feeling in the core of your body.  


“Yes, I did it!” or 

“It is done . . . and DONE!”


Now, before you get all gung ho about “what’s next on the list”, let’s do a quick check-in.

Have you ever looked at your TO-DO list at the end of the day and felt shame about not getting enough done on your list?

If you’re a yes . . . then this is for you!

That anxious energy you feel is not because you didn’t take action.


It comes from training your brain to think that getting shit done is what makes you successful.


The brain is believing that the only way you feel safe and complete, is by doing and getting to the done part.

Staying in this train of thought gets exhausting and in the long run, teaches the brain to think that “taking action is hard and takes a lot of effort.”

Ultimately, keeping you in a state of struggle, when you can be at ease.

So let’s show your brain where to actually focus and what you can do to get shit done without beating yourself up. OK?


Every sense of accomplishment begins with a thought that you have about having done the task.


Therefore, by shifting your focus from the scarcity mindset of “I NEED TO FINISH THIS NOW” to the sufficiency mindset of “IT IS DONE,” you can move freely towards your goal without the pressure.  

By showing your brain how to be in the “having done” mindset BEFORE you take on a big goal, you can feel safe and certain it will get done and feel like a rockstar checking off your list.

You will naturally experience less doubt and confusion and more confidence in taking risks to accelerate your growth.

By mastering this simple skill of creating your own mental safety net, you can move through the anxiety of a big task with less struggle and more ease.
