3 Signs You Have a Scarcity Mindset (that's keeping you poor!) | Episode 015 - The Woman Entrepreneur PodcastOct 18, 2022
Have you ever thought "There's not enough _____?"
I can say with 100% certainty that you have had this thought at some point in your life about something.
For example, there's not enough:
- clients coming my way
I could keep going, but I think you get the point!
Any time we have the thought - there's not enough ____ - it indicates that we have unconscious scarcity thinking (A.K.A. a money block.). And a scarcity mindset is keeping you poor in your business (and let’s be honest with ourselves, this is definitely not gonna help you scale your business to 6-figures fast!).
What you want is abundance and this will require that you reprogram your money mindset so that:
- you can have more time
- attract clients more easily, and
- make the big bucks as a woman entrepreneur.
(Now that's the #NFAMoneyMamaMindset 🤑!) So, let's breakdown the 3 signs that you have a scarcity mindset, so you can raise your money vibe and create abundance in your business.
3 Signs You Have a Scarcity Mindset (that’s keeping you poor!):
1. You Say, “I Can’t Afford It.”
Saying, "I can't afford it," is a declaration to the Universe. Remember, the Universe doesn't discriminate - it brings you exactly what you believe to be true (consciously and unconsciously), 100% of the time. So, if you believe you can't afford it, you'll keep recreating that reality. How this will show up in your business is that you will attract clients your way who will reflect your beliefs. For example, on consults, you'll commonly attract potential clients who say, "I can't afford it."
Quickest fix? Every time you hear yourself say, "I can't afford it," do a mindset reframe to "How can I afford it?" Then, come up with 15 ways you could afford whatever it is you're focusing on, and then take action on one of them, IMMEDIATELY. This will shift your mindset from scarcity to abundance and have you up-leveling your money vibe.
2. You Don’t Charge Enough
This is where I see 80% of women entrepreneurs stuck. They are in ZONE 2 (Overdeliver and Undercharge Zone), overgiving too many services and charging far too little. This happens because of imposter-syndrome-based-scarcity-thinking: "I am not enough" and "There aren't enough clients." Because you believe you are not enough, then you also believe there aren't enough clients. Why? Because if you believed you are enough, then you'd believe that clients would be knocking down your door to have the opportunity to work with you. And, when clients are coming your way, your only choice is to charge more because you're in high demand.
Quickest fix? Start by building confidence in yourself (non-stop personal growth and development!) while simultaneously raising your prices by 10% when you make your next 5 offers. Watch what happens to your beliefs when you get that higher price!
3. You Feel Rushed (& Don’t Make Time to Relax)
Always feeling rushed is evidence that you believe there's a scarcity of time, which also illuminates your unconscious belief that there's never enough. When you're rushing it's because you're incapable of being present in the moment and you're "trying" to do too much. You will have a full plate, not be good at relaxing and express to yourself and those around you that "there's never enough time."
Quickest fix? Every time you hear yourself say, "I don't have enough time" do a mindset reframe to "I choose to be in control of my time." Then, take 3 deep breaths, get present in the moment and choose to focus on only one task - the very next task. Also (and this is critical!), block time on your schedule for relaxation. Do not break this relaxation time with yourself! You must retrain your brain to slow down, or you'll forever stay stuck on the treadmill of B.S. - believing that when you have enough time, then you'll relax (that time will never come because wherever you go, there you are).
Remember, shifting from a SCARCITY MINDSET to an ABUNDANCE MINDSET does not happen overnight or automatically. You've got to REPROGRAM YOUR MONEY MINDSET by doing mindset training, just like you'd train your muscles at a gym. Get started NOW, and your business will start to grow faster than you thought possible.
