This is known as a scarcity mindset, whereas paying attention to what we have is an abundance mindset. When we’re surrounded by others with a scarcity mindset, it’s easy for us to fall into that way of thinking ourselves. But, challenging the scarcity mindset and focusing on appreciation and abundance has benefits that can be truly life changing.
