Growth mindset. You hear that phrase everywhere, but what does it mean? It means that you believe you can grow. It’s simple but powerful. Now, why is this something you have to intentionally develop? There are a lot of negative forces bearing down on you that try to say that you can’t grow and change, but if you believe you can change, you will change. Mindset is everything.
Therefore, push for the stars by believing that you can grow. Yes, you have limits, but your attitude needs to be, “Today I can learn something new. Today I can get just a little bit better at that thing that I’m not good at.” If you believe that, you have a growth mindset.
Entrepreneurship is the ultimate way to develop a growth mindset. This is because you will be forced to do things out of your comfort zone, just because you are the only one who can do it. Does this mean that you have to be perfect at everything? No, but it does mean that you will get better at a lot of things that you shied away from in the past.
Do things that scare you.
What scares you? Go towards it. If public speaking frightens you, spend every week working on your public speaking. The better you get at that particular skill, the more you will believe in yourself. This will help you develop a growth mindset. With a growth mindset, entrepreneurs can do anything. Without a growth mindset, you are confined to a box, which limits your potential as an entrepreneur.

Rocking the Week of July 5th
Lee had an adventure with a client that needed her payroll files retrieved from Quickbooks. The client had maxed out her storage space on her Windows computer and wasn’t able to do a backup of her Quickbooks file.
Lee is a man of many hats in his business.
Although Lee is not an IT specialists, he is called on to fix messes, which require utilizing the tools within Quickbooks to retrieve his clients computer files. Solving problems that involve computers is not the kind of work that Lee is used to doing; it is out of his comfort zone. But, because Lee is an entrepreneur and wants to do everything that he can to help his clients. Thus, he used his training, for both the desktop and online Quickbooks products, to retrieve the client’s Quickbook files on her computer.
A CPA once told Lee the strength of his company is that he knows how to work within Quickbooks and utilize the tools and resources Intuit offers Pro-Advisors. Thus, in this instance, Lee was able to use Quickbooks to solve the clients problem by retrieving lost information. By doing so, Lee was able to pay the client’s employee and transfer her files to the cloud.
What Lee learned this week is that no matter the obstacle, he will work to solve the problem. By having a positive attitude and utilizing all the resources at his disposal, he can take on any challenge. This week at the end of the day, Lee had a very happy client, and Lee felt a sense of accomplishment.
Lee hopes that you learn from his experience and try to tackle those tasks that you’re not comfortable with. For Lee, working out of his comfort zone meant that he gained more confidence in his skills as an entrepreneur. He hopes the same for you.
