Abundance vs. Scarcity Mindset

Nneka Jenkins is an extraordinarily successful REALTOR® based in California. She has seen outstanding growth even during the challenges of the global pandemic… which is all the more impressive when you find out that she has only been working full time in real estate for three years!

So how did Nneka achieve such rapid success and built out a small team of outstanding employees to fuel that growth? It was all about abundance vs. scarcity mindset. Nneka realized that she was holding herself back and seeing things through a lens of scarcity, and she was allowing her fears to keep her from tapping into her full potential.

By working to shift her mindset to one of abundance, by recognizing her special skills and natural talents, and by leaning into her relationships, Nneka was able to overcome her fears. Abundance vs. scarcity mindset really does make that much a difference to your success!

Setting Her Own Expectations

During our conversation, one of the things that Nneka admitted to struggling with was her preconceived notions about what it means to be a successful wife and mom. Nneka had to have a personal epiphany about why setting her own vision of success was far more important than allowing her preconceptions to define success for her. And she had to break through her fear and begin truly believing in her capabilities.

This key realization allowed Nneka to push herself farther and take a chance on herself. And that’s when the magic happened! When we “get out of our own heads” and see the world as full of possibilities and opportunities, we are able to achieve things we never thought possible. Mindset is so important, as Nneka has shown us! That’s the difference between a mindset of abundance vs. scarcity mindset!
