By Wendi Dawson – President, Melbourne Business Network
There is so much anticipation, expectation and hope at the beginning of each year for upcoming success.
Many of us will start with New Year’s resolutions or goals for what we want to achieve. Some of us are disciplined enough to update and revise our business plans.
All of those are great and highly effective at providing a road map to success, however, what else might you need to achieve your goals?
Your mindset has a tremendous impact on whether you will succeed or not. Whether you see opportunities everywhere or obstacles. Whether you take a chance to grow or stay the same. It’s the difference between a growth mindset and a fixed mindset.
So, what is a growth mindset? In essence, a growth mindset is the belief that success can be achieved through hard work, learning, collaboration, innovation and in seeing opportunities. A fixed mindset is the opposite; it’s about being rigid, not taking risks, not encouraging or embracing new ideas and seeing barriers or limitations to success everywhere.
At the Melbourne Business Network (MBN), we believe that 2020 will be the best year for you and your business. We look forward to bringing more expert speakers to our members and community which will help you to achieve your goals. Additionally, we look forward to recognising and celebrating your successes.
It’s time to enter Melbourne’s premier Business Awards program. Managed by the MBN, the B3000+ Awards have been celebrating the endeavours and successes of businesses operating in the City of Melbourne since 2004, across all precincts. Join us for the launch of the 2020 B3000+ Awards on Thursday, February 20. For the event, we are delighted to have Chris Helder as a keynote speaker. Chris is one of the most sought-after keynote speakers in Australia when it comes to mastering the power of mindsets, genuine communication and influence.
