So, what is mindset and why is it important for your property business? Keep reading to find out more…
Your mindset is a set of beliefs, assumptions, and thoughts you acquire over your lifetime, which shape the way you view the world around you.
Mindset is important in all ventures we take and people’s reactions to the same situation can vary vastly depending on their mindset.
Your mindset affects everything you do for your property business including, networking, sourcing new deals, dealing with problems and so much more, so it is important to understand the two different types of mindset and how to adapt your current mindset to make positive changes in your property business.
What are the different types of mindsets?
There are two very common types of mindsets, and most people fall into one or the other.
Fixed Mindset – Someone who has a fixed mindset will often avoid challenges and give up easily. They will view any effort as fruitless and will ignore negative feedback. People with a fixed mindset will feel threatened by the success of others.
Growth Mindset – This mindset is more common in successful entrepreneurs. Someone with a growth mindset will embrace challenges and have great persistence. They learn from criticism and are inspired by other people’s successes.
Mindset and Your Property Investing Business
Overcoming Challenges – You will encounter many different challenges when investing in property. Instead of seeing these as ‘problems’, adopting a ‘growth mindset’ will help you overcome these challenges and lead you to a better deal and a higher return on investment.
Giving Up – On your property journey, you will come across lots of issues that could hinder your progress. For example, getting an offer declined, a deal falling through and much more. Giving up when you experience these hurdles will make it very hard for you to become a successful investor.
Embracing a ‘growth mindset’ can help you view these setbacks as an opportunity to develop and learn. You must always remember to keep going. If we give up, we will never succeed.
Criticism – This can be an invaluable tool to a successful property investor who has a ‘growth mindset’, who views criticism as a chance to learn and develop. For an investor who has a ‘fixed mindset’, they are more likely to view this as a negative comment, leading them to give up.
Others Success – Investors with a ‘fixed mindset’ will feel threatened and jealous by other investors success. These emotions can slow or stop you reaching your goals.
Investors with a ‘growth mindset’ will find lessons and inspiration from people who have already achieved success.
Fear of Failure – The fear of failure has stopped many would be greats from achieving their dreams. People with this trait of a ‘fixed mindset’ will be more concerned about failing, than the actions they need to take to succeed. People with a ‘growth mindset’ will acknowledge that failure is part of the journey and is a great opportunity to learn from their mistakes.
As you can see, the mindset that you adopt throughout your life can affect your property investing business in a negative or a positive way. So, challenge yourself to always aim for a ‘growth mindset’.
