Episode 6 – Abundance vs Scarcity

his episode features an interview with Tanya Bennett, and it is full of wisdom and real life examples of how a gratitude practice can completely change your life. Tayna shares how growing up in a traumatic home situation led her to living life in scarcity. She never felt like she had enough, and was constantly needing more, more, more. Tayna talks about the moment that changed her mindset, and how constantly striving to live in abundance and gratitude has led to positive outcomes in her life.

“You have to start focusing on starting from a place of abundance, and in order to focus on abundance, you have to be grateful for what you have. The more I practiced gratitude, the more abundance came into my life.” – Tayna Bennett
