I believe that solutions are all around us, it’s the right questions don’t often have.
So, I would like to offer you two simple yet profound questions to reflect on:
- 1Why should anyone want to do business with you, as an individual?
- 2Would you do business with yourself? Why?
Individuals with a Fixed Mindset – closed personal learners – may find these questions silly, offensive, or even scary. Those with a Growth Mindset, will embrace this challenge and learn something.
I encourage you to adopt the latter mindset in order to learn from criticism (even self-criticism), see effort as the path to mastery, and find lessons in the success of others. Below are some of the books that have challenged, stretched and strengthened my thinking over the years.
