Mastering Psychology for Startup by Renita Kalhorn, Executive Coach for CEOs



Being an entrepreneur = riding an emotional rollercoaster 🎢

More than talent, education or knowledge, the difference between entrepreneurs who succeed and those who give up comes down to one thing: a growth mindset. You’re not born with it; you have to train and develop it.

What’s a growth mindset? 👍
Well, it doesn’t have anything to do with customer acquisition or sales. It’s about being in the right state of mind to overcome self-doubt, learn faster and convert fear into opportunity.

Just as we do with a physical muscle, we can strengthen and develop mental muscles like focus, courage and resilience.
– Master self-doubt and fear: rise to the occasion in high-pressure situations,
– Bounce back quickly from setbacks: stay on track,
– Convert failure into opportunity and your competitive edge. 😉
