Like Mike mentioned early in the thread, there are certain limitations on resources. Creativity may be unlimited, but there is a fixed amount of most elements on earth, at least until the next asteroid hits. (But donít count on that providing much help in the short run!) And a trapped miner will most likely benefit from adopting a scarcity mindset with respect to air and forego the morning jumping jacks. On the other hand, once rescued he or she may get a lot of enjoyment from going "Abundance Mindset" and blowing the Xmas fund on a little R&R in Cabo.
I'm not trying to argue that a scarcity mindset is more conducive to making money or a better frame of reference on which to base decision making. Just that in certain situations, it is beneficial for us to figure out a way to make do with what we have.
