A fixed mindset views the market as limited and shrinking, while a growth mindset sees the market as ever-growing and full of opportunities.
As the leader of my business, I know I have to be growth-minded. I tell myself every day that there are thousands of clients I can reach out to, that money is everywhere, and people need what I have. This keeps me motivated and focused on my end goal. Mindset is something I control and actively choose, and probably more importantly invest in.
Developing Your Mindset
Having the right mindset is essential for succeeding in business and life. But how can you build your mindset and lead it in the right direction? As an entrepreneur, I've learned that there are some key things you have to keep doing to maintain a positive
and growth mindset.
The first is not to limit your thinking. The minute you begin to put limits on what you achieve or what is possible for you, your showing that you do not believe you can make it. Limiting your thinking will only lead to restricting the ideas that flow, which then stunts any chance for growth and performance.
Just as crucial as limitless thinking is being deliberate about your habits and actions. Imagine having a goal to run a marathon, but not being committed to creating the fitness plan that will get you from the couch to the marathon and cross the finish line. How could that 'goal' ever come true, if you only THINK about it as a possibility without creating that plan. If you do not plan for how you will achieve your goals, then they become nothing more than a 'wish.' The same thing can be said about any goals you set for your business. If you're not deliberate about taking actions and creating a plan which will enable you to achieve those dreams/goals, then nothing will be accomplished. For me, what I have learnt to be right over my many years as a project manager is that in order for projects (aka goals/dreams) to come to fruition, it is vital to set in place a plan which breaks down the steps and tasks needed to be done for both the short and long term, along with any valid dependencies. It's critical to manage that plan then, work through any risks and issues, and develop a healthy mindset to ensure that no matter what happens, you are resilient enough to overcome it and met your goals.
By having limitless thinking and being deliberate about behaviors and habits, you can maintain your entrepreneurial spirit, develop a positive mindset, and be open to growth and success in your business.
