EP31 How To Rewire a Scarcity Mindset for Working Moms

Today, we're confronting a pervasive challenge: scarcity mindset. As working moms, we often feel the weight of never having enough time, resources, or opportunities. But here's the thing – scarcity is a mindset, not a reality. Let's unpack its effects and uncover strategies for rewriting our stories.

Today I unravel the scarcity mindset that plagues so many of us moms. In this post, I want to open the lid on scarcity thinking, its impact on our lives, and most importantly, practical strategies for shifting towards abundance. So settle in, and let’s do do this.

Understanding Scarcity Mindset

At its core, scarcity mindset is the belief that there will never be enough – enough time, enough money, enough opportunities. As working moms, we often find ourselves trapped in this cycle of lack, constantly striving to do more with less. Whether it’s the pressure to excel in our businesses, careers, the endless comparisonitus, or the fear of falling short in various roles, scarcity mindset permeates every aspect of our lives.

Recognizing the Impact

The effects of scarcity mindset on working moms are profound and far-reaching. We experience heightened stress levels as we juggle multiple responsibilities, leading to burnout and exhaustion. Our personal and professional growth is stunted as we play it safe, avoiding risks and resisting opportunities for advancement. But perhaps most damaging of all is the way scarcity mindset diminishes our sense of self-worth, convincing us that success is reserved for others, not for us.

Strategies for Rewiring Scarcity Mindset

But … we have the power to rewrite our stories and embrace a mindset of abundance. (Yes, it is NEVER too late!) It begins with gratitude – consciously focusing on what we have rather than what we lack. By cultivating an abundance mentality, we recognize that opportunities are limitless and success is within reach. And let’s not forget the importance of self-compassion – being kind to ourselves, acknowledging our wins, and celebrating our progress along the way.

Implementing Change

So how do we implement these changes into our daily lives? It starts with small steps – setting aside time for gratitude journaling, practicing mindfulness, and prioritizing self-care. Consistency and patience are key as we navigate this journey towards abundance. And remember, progress is the goal – celebrate your victories, no matter how small, and keep moving forward.


As we bring this journey to a close, let us embrace the truth that scarcity mindset is not our destiny. We are powerful, resilient, and capable of rewriting our narratives. By shifting our mindset from scarcity to abundance, we open ourselves up to a world of possibility and potential. So let’s take that first step together, dear working moms, and embark on a journey towards a life filled with abundance, joy, and fulfillment.
