53: Think Like A Rich Person



Andrew has returned from paternity leave! He was missed.

Today, your dynamic duo are discussing abundance mindset vs. scarcity mindset. Or, as Andrew calls it, thinking like a rich person (abundance) versus thinking like a poor person (scarcity). In other words, "playing to win instead of playing to not lose."

This has many applications to business as well as life. High points in this episode include:

  • How many rich people Andrew knows who are trapped in a scarcity mindset
  • How knowledge informs our attitude toward wealth and its absence
  • Developing courage by exploring your fears to their logical conclusion

"If you're always playing to limit your downside, you limit your upside. If you want upside, you need to take risks."
