Happy to help, Jay! I like your gold analogy.
That reminds me of something I’ve been thinking about lately: the difference between the “scarcity” mindset and the “abundance” mindset.
Those with a scarcity mindset believe that there are limited slices in the pie, so there’s no sense in sharing tips/ideas/advice with others. After all, those people would steal our slices of pie, and no one wants that! ;)
Those with an abundance mindset believe the pie can get bigger. As more people participate, everyone wins. From an abundance perspective, it’s best to spread the love and share your gold because doing so not only makes others wealthy but also shines favorably upon you.
I think Medium presents a great way for all of us to share our gold. I’m so glad you found this article helpful and I wish you all the best!
