"Mindset" means:

  • The lens through which we perceive and approach challenges
  • A mental framework that influences beliefs, decisions & responses
  • What is formed in early childhood from praising & labeling
  • A set of attitudes on culture, values, philosophy, outlook & disposition
  • The architect of our mental landscape

How to develop an entrepreneurial mindset​

1. Embrace uncertainty: actively & selectively.​

2. Practice disciplined execution: consistently & decisively.​

3. Challenge assumptions: regularly & curiously. ​

4. Foster a learning orientation: openly & persistently.​

5. Build collaborations: diversly & continuously.  ​


  • Your personality decides your mindset, but also the other way around.
  • There is no single mindset, but a multiple mindset, on 8 dimensions.
  • Cultivating a positive & open mindset is an ongoing journey.
  • Mindsets are learned tendencies that keep us unique.
  • All is flexible, the power to change resides in YOU! Add “YET”!​
