It is an absolute truth that we are surrounded by more negative people than positive ones. These can be our family members, friends, spouse, and even partners and clients. They are the naggers, complainers, naysayers. They see the proverbial glass always empty instead of full. If you are striving hard to find success as an entrepreneur, you would find it very difficult to get along with them. However, one of the advantages of having a growth-oriented mindset is that it will help you cope with these people and even cultivate a better work and personal relationship with them through 4 easy steps:
A limited mindset always sees personal differences as a threat and a bone of contention. This leads to a disagreements and fights. On the other hand, a growth-oriented mind celebrates difference and diversity. For e.g.:
It is possible that you maybe a thinker and your partner is more of a doer.
Or you may be good with numbers but your partner may have great communication abilities. Or your partner maybe a introvert and you maybe more of a social magnet.
So if your life partner or your business partner thinks differently from you, then see it as an advantage for your personal or work relationship. He or she would have a different perspective and way of doing things, which can be a great benefit for your personal life and your business. Celebrate this diversity rather than feeling exasperated by it. See it as a yin and yang principle that is behind the creative forces of nature and universe and every creation in it.
Put Diversity to Work
Once you recognize diversity and differences and accept them, then you can divide tasks related to your personal and business accordingly with your life and business partner. Alone, we would experience limited success in personal and professional life. A team with diverse skills is a great team and brings equal value to a personal and work relationship.
Stop Fearing Criticism and Challenges
Women entrepreneurs with a growth mindset are able to embrace criticism of their business partners, spouse, clients, etc, better than those with a fixed mindset and see them as pointers for growth. They don’t feel threatened by criticism as they don’t expect themselves or their partners to be perfect. That is why, entrepreneurs who are more receptive to the negative and positive comments of their clients are the ones who are able to cultivate better relationships with their clients and help their businesses grow. They are not deterred by business challenges and problems and try to come up with creative ways to find their way around them.
So it all boils down to this: A growth-oriented mindset positively impacts personal and business relationships, improves the bottom-line and ultimately leads to successful results.
Every relationship in life, be it personal or work, requires hard work. Even if you don’t have a growth oriented mindset, you can rewire your mind to become growth oriented and improve your relationships, your business and your life.
