“The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young. If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right. Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal” -Henry Ford.
5 Winning Mindset Of Virtual Assistants. We hear a lot of advice about mindset most of them are that we should have a positive one. In this blog, we are going to talk about two types of mindset; GROWTH MINDSET & FIXED MINDSET.
Importance of Growth Mindset for Virtual Assistants

How will you develop a growth mindset that will help you make your job easier as a Virtual Assistant?
Knowing and understanding your purpose is as important as determining your passion. A virtual assistant wants to do what they love for people who need support.
Time and effort
Being a Virtual Assistant is not easy. It takes a lot of time and effort. You have to learn a lot of skills and market yourself. You need to reach out and make things happen.
Be accountable to yourself and to the people you work with. Do what you say you’re going to do. If you made a mistake, own up to it and do better next time.
It comes when you understand what your client needs. Respect them and offer relevant services. As a virtual assistant, you should be honest, consistent, and reliable.
Think ahead to what your clients need to keep the work fresh and it is also a way to showcase your expertise. Do not wait for your clients to contact you to send you the tasks they want you to work on. Be proactive and schedule regular meetings or calls to discuss what help they’ll be needing in their business.
A successful Virtual Assistant avoids procrastination. You should be able to motivate yourself given that work can be difficult some days. Beating procrastination is a really important part of your mindset. Develop good daily routines and work habits. I understand there are things you don’t particularly like doing, consider doing those in the morning to get them done. Tasks that require more concentration or focus should be done at your most productive time of the day.
A successful virtual assistant can cultivate a winning mindset that comes through in everything they do- may it be marketing, conversating or working!
