Londina Cruz about change in Money Mindset - from Scarcity Mentality to Abundance - even when making over six figures
I didn't grow up with knowledge of money. My mother didn't talk about money. All I remember is that she used to go to work and she always had to work three jobs, but what happened with money I had no knowledge. I know we didn't have much. So I grew up with a scarcity mentality. I didn't realize that until actually just recently and even just listening to the calls that I have a scarcity mentality, I operated out of lack and not out of wealth. And so I've chosen to switch my mentality. Before there were many times throughout my life where I had money and I made a six figure income, but my mentality was, you need to stock up in everything that you need because one day this money is going to be gone and you need to make sure that you're okay. So that's a mentality that I had. So, I would get money I would spend money, because I thought that by stocking up on everything that I needed making sure everything was taking care of that. Everything was going to be okay forever but that's not the way life works. You want to have money come in. Money is abundance, is an energy, and you need to change your mindset in order to attract it. And when it comes, you need to use it appropriately, you need to use some for your shelter, some for your food, for your clothing, you need to use some to give back to society and you need to put some away for your future and let it multiply, and also multiple streams of income, I've learned about that as well. My goal is that throughout this course, I'll learn to become more and more aware of how to have an outstanding relationship with money.
