A Seasonal Mindset: Abundance or Scarcity

Are you a summer or winter person?

If you are like me, you’re holding tight to these passing summer days and pretending not to see all the Halloween items lining store aisles. (Although I love Halloween!)  Historically this would be me, until recently I realized that the end of each summer offers a great life lesson: we get to pick our mindset.

Resisting the days getting shorter literally hardwires us into a scarcity mentality; not just toward the cycle of the season but into our overreaching outlook.  We limit our thinking when we should be changing our frame of mind – to abundance.

On the contrary, welcoming the transition from summer to autumn is abundance mentality.  This mindset tells us that there are always new chances and opportunities with every change.  We think possibilities versus limitations.  We embrace what’s next rather than hold onto what has passed.

I chose this year to let go of summer with a little more acceptance and a lot more hope for what’s to come.  If you find yourself fighting the end of summer, change your mindset – it is as simple as that.  After all, what you focus on, you will see.

Let your mindset be your biggest asset!
