Is it possible to have more than one mindset?

A person with an abundance mindset assumes that there is always more. When you know there is more; you look for more. So you will create opportunities and uncover more resources.

When you operate with an abundant mindset, you also are more open to what others bring to the table. Rather than grappling over yours vs. mine, you understand that there is enough for yours and mine.

On the other hand, when you operate from a scarcity mentality, you are more apt to compete unnecessarily. With a scarcity mindset you ultimately, waste the resources you already have competing for what belongs to someone.
