“Poverty is a state of mind.” ~Rahul Gandhi 

Do you ever catch yourself passing on joyous opportunities because you feel it will be too expensive? Do you second guess yourself before or after making purchases? If so, you may be experiencing symptoms of a poverty mindset. It is important to differentiate between actual poverty and refusing to experience life more abundantly. Research suggests that 80% of the world lives on $10 per day. At least 1.1 billion people in developing countries do not have access to water and some 1.2 billion people worldwide do not have access to electricity. If you have water and electricity, chances are you are not living in extreme poverty. And, if you are not living in extreme poverty, chances are you can afford to treat yourself, at least some of the time.

Here are some ways to overcome a poverty mindset:

  1. Interesting post Sharon – I liked #5 the best. I was working at a full-time job for a sole practitioner in a law firm until 2009, then got laid off, and my boss became pretty self-sufficient and had said he could hire me back when business got better, probably in 2010. Admittedly, we had worked together since 2000 and left a law firm after a bad merger happened, and my mom (and only relative) had passed away in 2010, so I decided to lie low a while until I was hired back and was hired back in June 2011, but only part-time, with the expectation of full-time “some day in the near future” … so fast forward to January 2018. My boss will soon be 71 years old, business is very slow and I may find myself in the not-so-enviable position of looking for a job at age 62 (I turn 62 in April) … a college degree obtained in journalism in 1978 doesn’t help much now and I look at legal secretary or administrative jobs and they require all kinds of Microsoft suite expertise – I don’t have this, only use MS Word. It’s a scary thought. He always said he would not retire before I hit age 65 – that was before the economic downturn in 2008.

      1. Self-love is important … Today I scheduled my highlights and cut for April 14th … didn’t know my birthday was a Saturday until I looked on the calendar. I lost track of when it was this year. Highlights … gotta cover over those annoying and pesky little gray hairs that pop out. 🙂 Have a good evening too Sharon.

  2. A poverty mindset. Please. I don’t wish to be rude but let’s forget about mindsets and focus on removing Theresa May and the filthy Tories from office. Don’t vote Tory on May 3rd.
