I am sharing another great post by Sasha Dichter, Chief Innovation Officer at the Acumen Fund. It is about the concepts of scarcity and abundance. He says:
It is so easy to experience what we feel we lack.
There's never enough time or enough money.
We could do it if we just had a little more access, a little more support.
I'll start my new business soon, I'm just not quite ready.
I'll start blogging as soon as I come up with a few more ideas.
I'll take that big leap once it becomes just a little clearer what the other side looks like.
Abundance comes when you start practicing abundance. It's a decision, an attitude, a state of mind, and a practice.
I know I have to work on it each and every day. And it is work. But I keep at it.
What a critically important concept for charities and fundraisers. Think about it. Who wants to fund scarcity? What is "richer" than an abundance of ideas, optimism, affirmation, and certainty? It is a state of mind, an attitude, an outlook.
Let's all work on it -- and practice it everyday.
