Nothing worthwhile ever gets done without hard work, risk, and worry. The entrepreneur has these qualities
Why this mind set? Entrepreneurs are willing to take risks. Education, in its general current state, has a fixed mindset - using the same tactics with little change. In a growth mindset, the mindset of a entrepreneur, nothing is fixed because the need to iterate to improve a product or service is paramount. The saying, "If it ain't broke broke don't fix it." doesn't apply.
The innovative spirit that drives indivduals to excel focuses on a growth mindset.
"In a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. They spend their time documenting their intelligence or talent instead of developing them. They also believe that talent alone creates success—without effort. They’re wrong."
In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment. Virtually all great people have had these qualities."
