You are now listening to Leverage for Growth. Hey everybody this is Jesse P. Gilmore founder of Niche in Control and creator of the Leverage for Growth, welcome to the daily leverage edition. 

Today’s topic is this “From Scarcity to Abundance”. Sit back, relax and welcome to today’s daily leverage.


So this morning, I was doing my morning routine of stacking and reflecting on the ascension of business owners from a scarcity mindset to an abundance mindset.


I have been studying mindset, psychology and success for over a decade now and I am continuing to learn new things every day from myself, my experience, my clients and continued studying


The most recent revelation is how there is an ascension of three levels within a business owners mind


They start in scarcity, level 1


During this time, they believe in the finite pie


There is only so much to go around


In order to get ahead, someone else must lose 


Win/lose mindset


Eye for an eye


It is limited


And the driving force from scarcity to abundance is fear


Fear of not having enough


Fear of being left behind


So abundance is level 2


Kind of like a video game


As you continue to learn and gain new skills, you level up


Abundance is where your needs are met and you are enough, you have enough


For many, getting to abundance would be a dream


Many people think of abundance as simply based on financial abundance and freedom


But it can be found in your body with having a body that works with you to accomplish what you ask of it


It can be found in your being with spirituality and a connection to something bigger than you


It can be found in your marriage with a partnership that fills you up


It can be found in your kids with a bond that gives you the insight and perspective needed to become a better version of yourself


It can be found in your business with growth, expansion and impact


So abundance is level 2


But there is another level


Level 3 is prosperity


The driver from abundance to prosperity is not fear but rather faith


There is something pulling you towards purpose, meaning and impact far greater than simply abundance


The thing that holds many people back from making this leap towards faith and prosperity is complacency and a lack of vision or purpose


Abundance is where your needs are met


Prosperity is when you have so much that you must give back and help others


The mindset shifts that are made between these three levels determines the results and vision for the future


When you can embrace where you are today and know what you need to cultivate for yourself to level up


Anything is possible


Why is this important?


Many times as entrepreneurs, we limit our own thinking to what is possible and what we can do in the world


We may think that we are living in abundance but maybe only in one or two areas of life


We may make lots of money but have a body that is working against us


Or we may have an amazing body but not a strong connection to our partner


It is when we embrace the possibility that we can move all areas of our life from scarcity to abundance at the same time, we start to test and expand what we are truly capable of


Now it is time for the daily leverage.


Where in your world whether in your life or business, have you been stuck in scarcity on the road to abundance?


Is it in your life with your health or body? 


Is it in your life with your spirituality or self-direction? 


Is it in your relationships with your spouse, partner or kids?


Is it in your business or finances or team?


Once you have located where you have been in scarcity and you have decided what needs to be improved, I want to ask you…


What are you willing and able to do about it today?


That is the end of our daily leverage. This is Jesse P. Gilmore and you have been listening to the Leverage for Growth podcast.
