Many people never see their full potential or value in life because they are living in a mindset of scarcity. These limiting beliefs hold them back from becoming who they want and do what they want in life. It’s preventing them from creating the legacy that they want to leave into the world. But once you break that barrier and belief, your world will change at so many levels. It’s time to be honest with yourself in what could be the greatest question in your life. What’s holding you back? Are you going to just let it define you or are you breaking your way into them and taking the reins in your own life? Join Dan Zitofsky in this episode and decide for yourself.

How To Stop Living In Scarcity And Start Getting Your Mindset On Point
Fighting The Scarcity Mindset
We’re going to talk about a bit of a mindset. I’ve studied mindset a lot over the last several years and a lot of it has to do with limited beliefs or scarcity. I ask you to share this out there with your friends, family, audience, or whoever it might be. If you don’t do that, you’re living in a scarcity mindset. I see it all the time in the real estate investing world and the business world. When you ask people, “Who could help me out fix this problem?” You don’t want to give your resources because you’re scared that they’re going to somebody who is going to do a bit better than you, you’re going to lose some business, or you might lose your contractor because of it.
You’re living in a life of scarcity. I’ve seen it time and time again. I’m doing this for a long time. I see it all the time where people that live in a scarcity mindset and have that scarcity belief don’t grow. That’s why the right masterminds are important. When I say that, it’s just not somebody who calls themselves a mastermind, it’s those masterminds where you’re challenged and held accountable. I’m starting up my prosperity in a circle with up to ten people max.
The reason it’s important is that it intends to have the right people in that mastermind or that inner circle means everything. By doing that, it allows you to have people hold you accountable. It allows people to say, “You need help with this. I want you on one of my masterminds and I’m having a little bit of an issue myself.” I started realizing that my audience might not be the right audience. We talk about those all the time. You are who you hang out with. I’ve talked about The Power of Six before, and I’m sure I’ll talk about it again.
I have thousands of people over the years following me. I have an email list that’s over 100,000. I’m on Facebook. I keep it in that 5,000 friends limit. I’m not saying this to impress you. It’s to impress upon you how important it is to have the right network. That’s why you have to be intentional about the mastermind, the inner circle, a boardroom, or board of directors, whatever you’re in. You have to be intentional about the people that are on that because if you’re not, you’re wasting your time and be buried with distress and aggravation. I’m telling you this only because I’ve gone through this. There’s a lot of hurt that comes through this and what the hurt is, is when you think people value and they don’t value, it’s a gut wrench.
I believe it’s a life journey. I do believe in faith and God. I’m put here for a reason, and I’m putting every situation for a reason, but when your makeup is to be somebody that wants to help the right people. When I say the right people, the right people with the right mindset and they don’t get it, they live in scarcity or this limited belief that they’re not worth it. That drives home and it hurts. On the limited belief side, a lot of people don’t believe they’re worth it. They’re not going to tell you, “I’m Dan and I don’t believe I’m worth it.”Stop living in scarcity. Value yourself. Invest in yourself. Click To Tweet
They’re not going to tell you that. They’re going to talk a big game. They’re going to go on social media and talk about how great they’re doing but when they close that screen, they get off, or they power off, real life happens. A lot of it has to do with living in the moment, being honest with yourself. A lot of these things I’m talking about is what I speak about at events. I’m bringing it all on the cumulation of one podcast episode. A lot of people live in this limited belief that they have. They don’t value themselves.
I’ll explain how that is. They want to do better, more for their family, life, business, relationship, and to be healthy, whatever it might be. They go to these events and then they find somebody they love. That person they love is a mentor or has a program. They believe that it’s a cost to them. Anytime you think it’s a cost to you, an investment in yourself, and getting better for yourself, then your beliefs are wrong. We can argue forever. It’s not a cost. It’s an investment. If you’re not willing to invest in yourself, why not? Why wouldn’t you invest in yourself? Are you not worth investing in yourself? How much are you worth? Are you worth $1,000, $10,000, $100,000, $50, or nothing? It kills me when I see it. I see it all the time, not just from me because I’m intentional about who I bring in.
That’s why I said it in my group. When we launch, we’re only launching to a maximum of ten people. I’m intentional about who I’m bringing in. I want the right people in the group, who are givers and going to hold each other accountable. I don’t want people that are going to pound their chest how great they are. I want people that are vulnerable, honest, or we’re going to come and play full out. Not lie, not pound. They trust that right there. That’s social media. You can do that all day long. Put those fake cards, the planes, the boats, whatever you’ve got.
Put that on social media. Fake yourself and your life out. Fake your wife, husband, and kids. Let them see how great you are. That’s not what I’m looking for. It does nothing for our group and for me. I can’t do anything for you. I’m looking for honest people. I might be the only one saying this out there. Everybody else is looking to take the money. I’m looking for a great group of people, man and woman, to be in this group. I call it Prosperity Inner Circle that are going to hold each other accountable, play full out, not lie, be honest including myself. That’s what I’m looking for, that’s what I love. Those are people I want to be around.
That’s my boardroom and my power. I call it Power of Six and that could be my Power of Ten. I see many people out there that will talk a great game. They will put all this fake stuff on social media. I know it because I know them but I’m not going to mention names. They want to meet with me all the time like, “Let’s meet up and work together. Let’s talk and have coffee. Next time you’re in town, hit me up and let’s have dinner.” They’re putting all this crazy stuff on social media. I talked to him about being part of a group and it becomes crickets.
You don’t hear back from them. Our group is not expensive. It is an investment. I don’t know if it’s a cost to them and their mindset is the cost. I don’t know if that’s one thing. I don’t know if they don’t value themselves or they don’t value me, and that’s okay. I want people to read this, look in the mirror, and be honest with themselves. I’m hoping that’s what I get out of this show. I’m hoping that you get off this and you read it. I’m not going to make it long. You look in the mirror, look at yourself, and say, “Who am I going to be? Who am I to my wife, husband, kids, friends, business associates, partners, students, or players if you’re a coach?” Who are you?
I know who Dan Zitofsky is. Dan Zitofsky is a husband, father, grandfather, friend, son, uncle, brother, coach, mentor, partner, consultant and entrepreneur. Nothing in there says Dan Zitofsky is a millionaire and drives the most beautiful cars in the world, which I think I do drive some nice cars. Nothing in there talks about Dan Zitofsky has the nicest watch collection, which I do believe I have one of the nicest watch collections. Nothing in there talks about that because that’s not in my life vision, goal, and business vision. Was it at one time?
If you read my book, Passive to Prosperous, you’ll know what happened and you’ll understand why it’s not like that. If you haven’t, go back to episode one which I talked about why I started and why it’s called Passive to Prosperous. Why living a prosperous life is in my vision and what prosperity means to me. Do I still do business? Yes. I love it but that’s not my vision. With that, I’m not going to make this a long show. I think it’s a power-packed brief show. You can take this and change your lives. If you read this, this might be one of the most powerful episodes we did besides episode one.
You start realizing that you’re being honest with yourself. You’re living now and for the moment, being honest, realizing who you are, what your life vision is before you have business vision, who’s important to you, and how you’re going to change people’s lives. With that, once again, thank you for reading. I would love your review. Hopefully, it’s a five-star review on all the mediums we’re on, and share this out with at least five friends.
If you don’t, I believe you’re living in scarcity. You were put on this earth to do your part and you’re not doing your part sharing something positive like this. It would be hard fetch to say it won’t change your life but I can almost guarantee you, 1 of your 5 or 10 friends or family members is going to change their lives. They’re going to look in the mirror and realize that they’ve been living a life of lies, that maybe we could save somebody if we did our job. With that, I wish you all the best. Peace and joy. I love you all. Thank you for being on and have a great day.
