Mindset is the way of thinking, the core set of beliefs or assumptions about myself and about the world, that determines the behavior, outlooks and attitudes towards everything. So how a leader's mindset should look like?
The mindset of a successfull leeader should involve principles of "Creator mindset" and "Growth mindset". /As the opposite to Victim and Fixed mindsets/ The most important of such principles are: - i'm creator of my life and have control over it - i accept full responsibility for my life, my actions and my attitude towards any situation in my life - i know my direction and my goals - i always have a choice - i expect positive outcomes of my actions - the skills can be learned and developed with effort (they are not just "given") - the obstacles are challenges that shall be overcomed - the mistakes and failures are natural parts of development and a valuable lessons - in the environment of continuous changes the only stability is the dynamic one
For anyone who is supposed to be a leader or aspires to become one, it could be useful to compare his/her own beliefs with the above principles and if there are any opposites, consider changing them. Some tips that can help with that change: - realization that the current beliefs are blocking the way to goals and vision - meditation and visualization - controlling thoughts and self talk - acting as if the beliefs are already changed - spending time with people that already have the desired beliefs - building habits that supports the change
