Employee satisfaction is closely tied to performance. When satisfaction levels rise, productivity, customer service, and profits tend to rise too. Employee turnover slows down and it becomes easier to recruit new talent. See how your team, leadership, and shareholders can benefit from a company culture that emphasizes employee satisfaction.
ABUNDANCE MENTALITY – AN UNDIMINISHABLE RESERVE
Have you ever met one of those people who just always gives? They give and give as though that’s all they care about.
My wife is like this. Regardless of how tired she is, how much she’s already given, how busy she is, or how late it is, she is always giving—giving to our children, giving to me, giving to her friends, giving to neighbors and members of our church, and even giving to people that she doesn’t even know.
There are lots of stories of these kinds of people, like this, and this, and countless others. These people seem to have a particular mindset, often called Abundance Mentality. It’s as though they feel like there’s an undiminishable reserve and there’s always enough to give. Always.
I contrast that to the far more frequently encountered Scarcity Mentality. In this mindset we feel like we’ve got no more to give, or that we didn’t have enough to start with, or that we’re too busy or tired and we’ll give tomorrow.
The key thing to realize is this. It is not a difference in the availability of resources. It’s a difference in perspective. It’s another illustration of how we can control life, simply by choosing to perceive it differently—of how perception truly does shape reality.
So, do you know someone with Abundance Mentality? If so, please share so that we may all be inspired by their stories, that perhaps we can all give a little bit more.
