Don’t compete, complete. You’re in your own race.
What is Mindset and Why Does it Matter?
It’s perspective, how you see the world, how you choose to look at the world, and the lens through which you see the world.
It’s also your contribution to that world, your abilities, your perspective, your resources.
Your mindset is deeply rooted in what you believe to be true about yourself.
It’s like having a pair of glasses on and that’s the thing that you see the world through.
So we don’t really see the world, we see how we think the world is and our mindset actually filters things in or out.
That has a profound effect on your life, on the relationships you have and, of course, on how you perceive yourself and your business.
That’s why having the right mindset can benefit you so much, not only helping you with your self-esteem but also giving you the confidence to take your business in the right direction and make good and healthy business decisions.
Being able to turn what might be a negative and turn it into a positive, and by learning from setbacks and feedback rather than letting them consume and crush you.

How can I Change my Fixed Mindset?
It’s very hard to change a fixed mindset from the outside, it can only really be done from within.
My challenge for you is to think of the areas right now in your business in your professional life, where you might be showing signs of a fixed mindset.
Write down some ways that you can actually move away from thinking with a fixed mindset to a growth mindset.
How can you turn something around? How can you see something from a different angle with a fresh perspective? What are your options to do something different? And how will you feel about doing that thing?
Every one of us who runs a business effectively is the business.
The thing steering your business is you and your mindset.
So take an inventory of all the things where you’re displaying signs of a growth mindset, or a fixed mindset.
Your mindset can be the catalyst for endless possibilities in the year ahead. That’s it for this week.
Working for yourself and running your own business, a lot of it is personal and most of it’s down to mindset. So make sure you have the right mindset to bring about resilience and growth.
