“Once you change your mindset from one of scarcity to a mindset of abundance, you begin to think of potentials and possibilities rather than the things that can’t be done,” Naveen Jain, author of Moonshot, says.
A philanthropist and entrepreneur, Naveen Jain, will impart the importance of attaining a mindset of abundance. This type of mindset has been embraced by different CEOs that are similar to him, an Indian immigrant. Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google, and Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, were emboldened to achieve revolutionary matters making their businesses successful.
Abundance mindset means that there are a lot of things that we can share with other people, not just material things but also most importantly, kindness and knowledge. With that in mind, Jain did not restrict his thinking on things that exist. According to him, you do not think big when people will not think that you are crazy.
Jain emphasized that abundance of mindset leads you to thrive on changing the status quo rather than maintaining it. He truly believes that if you stay in the industry for a long time it is an indication that you are not innovating. He also highlighted that the company is becoming obsolete if it is more mature. Thus, start-ups are more closer to be successful.
With the current pandemic, successful entrepreneurs are those who continue their business as usual. They were able to innovate and pivot when things aren’t going their way. But not all were lucky to make it. However, a mindset of abundance does not allow you to be disheartened when you fail. Interestingly, it will make us resilient.
You can’t be resilient when you have negativities on your mind. Remember that you can’t give what you do not have. Thus, learn to prime your mind to have what you want to obtain and reach in life. Your frustrations and difficulties at the present are things you need to experience for you to be the person you pursue.
