Scale Up Your Business Podcast
Is Mindset The Most Important Thing? (Plus Tips to Shift Your Thinking Towards GROWTH)
Before we go learning all about the technical stuff of creating and scaling up a business, let’s establish first in yourself the most important thing you MUST have – the right positive mindset.
Today on the Scale Up Your Business Podcast, Nick emphasizes the importance of mindset and belief systems at the core of a successful business. It’s easy to learn about sales, marketing, operations and systems inside the business, but you have to have a firm foundation so you’d continue upscaling your business and not back out whatever the challenge will come your way. According to Nick, it also helps if we focus on our growth and be beneficial to others also.
70% of running a business success depends on your mindset, 10% is your strategy, and 20% is execution.
Start believing you can do it. People don’t wanna start their own business because they’re afraid they don’t have the capability and they’re afraid it will have a bad outcome. Remember that every successful entrepreneur had their doubts and fears before everything else. They were prepared to take risks.
Where you focus, it’s where your energy goes. Start eyeing on what you want to achieve. Put all your effort to finish the tasks that come with your goals.
6 Human Needs:
Certainty: commitment to relationships, against changes
Uncertainty: variety, spontaneity
Significance: perceived by others
Connection/love: need to be loved
Growth: as an individual, your business or your career
Contribution: giving back
Having a growth and contribution mindset can only not have a great impact on your business and your customers, but also it brings good benefits to you as an individual.
