As you head into your weekend, here are a few articles from the past week we thought you might enjoy.
Wanting everything we don’t have — that’s easy. Sometimes seeing what we already have takes a little more work. This week on the blog, we talked with 4word Founder and President Diane Paddison about ways to quit the scarcity mindset and cultivate gratefulness.

If you were asked to define “scarcity mindset,” what would you say? Is it something you think you struggle with? Is it a bad thing? S. Renee Smith, advisor, coach, and strategic partner, joins the podcast to discuss why the scarcity mindset is prevalent and what type of mindset we should all focus on having. Hosted by Jordan Johnstone.
