How have you all cultivated an abundance mindset? I don't necessarily mean just as it applies to money with respect to quantity, but I also mean in totality across all aspects of life?
I struggle with this BIG time. My parents were very poor immigrants to the U.S. and we struggled for many years living in a lot of scarcity. My parents were even worse before coming here. But over many years the family businesses have grown quite large and netting a few seven figures a year. Yet, my parents never changed. Everything they do is still drenched in scarcity and essentially a poverty mindset.
I grew up with this and didn't realize how bad it was until I got older and it affects me to this day. It's hard for me to spend any amount of good money without feeling guilty. I also don't like how I think about "larger" numbers such as dropping six figures on a watch, trip, etc. It's gut wrenching and I know it shouldn't be.
Perhaps this warrants a trip to a psychologist but I'm curious to hear if any of you have dealt with this.
