We take pleasure when ideas have an impact by improving motivation, innovation, or productivity, among others.

According to Carol Dweck, professor of psychology at Stanford University, individuals who believe they can develop their talents through hard work, good strategies, and input from others have a growth mindset. These individuals are likely to achieve more than those with fixed mindsets, because they put more energy into learning and are less concerned about looking smart.

Adopting a growth mindset can supercharge your well-being and growth. Here are ten ways to develop a growth mindset in business:

1. Become an expert in your field

In a world fueled by fake news, Photoshop’s social posts, and other illusions, it’s critical to become an expert. Strive to become truly good at what you do—so good that everybody wants your services.

3. Do the work and put in the time

Put in ten percent, and you’ll achieve only two percent of your potential. To achieve greatness, you’ve got to be at 100 percent, putting in the time and effort.

3. Be grateful for what you have

Gratitude is a gift and a core requirement for a growth mindset. The true expression of gratitude sets off an energy that has the power of drawing people towards you. Explore and embrace it.

4. Do not be concerned with what others have

Focusing on what others have and what they are doing sets expectations that simply slow you down and take focus away from your purpose.

5. Achieve your outcomes quickly

Getting somewhere first has more value than being perfect, but last. That first-mover advantage is very important for growth. Develop an appetite to fail often and quickly, developing your products and services quickly and better aligned with the needs of your customers.

6. Don’t focus on your failures

Focusing on your failures gives detractors too much leverage against you. Instead, claim and learn from your failures, and then focus on learning and growing from your mistakes.

7. Become self-aware and understand your purpose

If you want to have a business growth mindset, you must become self-aware and understand your purpose. Self-awareness has the power to align your will and humility, which attracts people to you through your purpose.

8. Be 100 percent accountable

As an entrepreneur, you must start to be responsible and accountable to yourself. As you grow, you will be demonstrating accountability and its value to your team; they will follow your lead, making accountability part of your company’s culture.

9. Don’t focus on money

Care about creating value. You want customers to say how proud they are of your products and services. You want employees to say how great it is to work for you and how much they learn from you. Focus on creating fans through value creation.

10. Do what you love for the people who love what you do

“You need to be purpose-driven doing what you love for those who love what you do.”

Discovering your purpose is as important as finding your niche. You will bring much more value and expertise to those that need you, and you will have so much more fun delivering your products and services.

Just because you put your mind to something doesn’t mean you can do anything. You must work at it, so start by implementing these ten steps and begin to live with purpose.
