Gabriel Mizrahi (@GabeMizrahi) joins us for this deep dive into what it takes to cultivate the mindset of abundance that seemingly makes generosity possible, and how to overcome the evolutionary blips in our programming that make it so counterintuitive.
“And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.” -Paul McCartney
What We Discuss with Gabriel Mizrahi:
- Why the mindset of scarcity is your survival mode default that urges you to see the world as a zero sum game and hoard your resources accordingly.
- What you can do to reconcile this scarcity mindset with one of abundance that seemingly permits you to give generously without remorse.
- How you can begin practicing the behavior of generosity even before you’ve fully sold yourself on the belief of abundance.
- The many ways that tiny repetitions of generosity act to strengthen the muscles of abundance with giant gains.
- A smattering of good advice for cultivating abundance, and (we hope) an abundance of even better advice for making generosity second nature.
- And much more…

To feel abundant means to feel connected to the assets you possess — knowledge, relationships, empathy, listening, love — and to know that those assets are not finite in the bigger picture. The term “abundance” comes from the Latin abundantia, which means “overflowing” — a nice metaphor for that feeling of limitless service. The benefit of abundance, of course, is to be able to offer value to other people. In the process, we realize just how much we actually have to give, and our sense of abundance grows deeper.
But that creates a puzzling catch-22. On one hand, it seems like being generous requires an abundance mindset. On the other, it seems like the only way to discover that abundance is to be generous. So which one comes first? How do we solve that paradox? Listen to this deep dive, learn, and enjoy!
