The Mindset of a Winner – CEO Message

The Mindset of a Winner – CEO Message

“The only limits for tomorrow are the doubts we have today” Piccatus Lore

The mindset of a winner – it is what separates innovators from the laggards.

Every entrepreneur or successful person you speak to will talk about their vision. Not all will talk about their mindset and determination to succeed. Because, for most successful people, it is a state of being that drives every action, their foundation and inner strength.

In September, I had the privilege of attending Commonwealth Bank’s 6th Annual Women in Focus Conference in Noosa and meeting some inspirational and courageous women and men. It was an event packed with people who see opportunities in the world around them and challenge the status quo with a positive mindset. One of my favourite quotes from the event was by Kate Mihell from CBA who said, “Time is ticking. Be what you want to be, do what you want to do.”

Reflecting under the theme Conversations and Collaborations, the inspirational likes of Andy Lark – the founder of Xero, Rosie Batty, and Dr Jordan Nguyen shared how they overcame obstacles, disrupted markets and become successful. It was wonderful to share this experience with Lauren Hall and Alison Covington from our Founders Circle who were also present.

Australia has a rich tradition of philanthropy and people who give time, money and services to help those in need. I recently talked about the changing nature of philanthropy and impact investing in LBD Gloss magazine. The article also has some brilliant insights from Alison Covington, CEO of Good360.

All of us have a vision; it just might take some of us longer to achieve it. In this newsletter, our expert contributors share their tips using positive mindset to achieve more.

Finally, change has been the only constant the last few weeks, from the heart wrenching refugee crisis to our politics. As forces bigger than us continue to disrupt, it falls upon us to think positively about the opportunities presented by the changes and help shape a better world. It starts with our mindset and blooms into something bigger. Let’s be the change we want to see.

With Gratitude,

Renata Cooper
Founder & CEO
