There are differences
Growth mindset refers to a broader kind of mindset whereas the entrepreneur mindset is more specific.
However, the two share several common behaviors and characteristics.
Positivity: No matter what happens, an entrepreneur can frame it in a positive light
Learn from Failure: Entrepreneurs generally don’t achieve success on the first try.
Perseverance: Just like the growth mindset, a key characteristic of the entrepreneur mindset is perseverance
Delegate to Others: People with the entrepreneur mindset don’t try to do everything themselves
Love of Learning: The entrepreneur mindset loves to learn new things.
Intuitive: Entrepreneurs are risk-takers but these aren’t just random risks taken for no reason at all
Follow-Through: Entrepreneurs are always on the lookout for new opportunities
Flexible: One thing that the entrepreneur and growth mindsets have in common is that they are flexible
Non-Conformist: Entrepreneurs are not afraid to stand out and appear crazy to others.
Goal Setters: People with the entrepreneur mindset set goals as a way to push themselves forward
Good Company: Finally, entrepreneurs surround themselves with other entrepreneurs, positive influences, and like-minded souls
