A handful of passionate innovators can alter the lives of billions in no time. But , what we call innovation? Innovation is any process that starts with an idea that is developed into a new set of technologies, activities, products and services.

The mental strategies that you have to master in order to impact the world are the followings:

1.Risk taking: Also means to take action quickly, make your own decisions, think and act. Risk taking is also synonymous to entrepreneurship. You must be ready to donate your time, to spend an amount of your personal capital, to trust people that work for you and so on. Running a strartup means that you must be prepared for the risks that you have to undertake. Investors are often asking from you to make quick decisions on  obstacles that may rise, deadlines and in most cases the time that you have is much less than it is required.  When we are talking about risk taking we mean that the risks are calculated in detail.

2.Ceaseless experimentation: Rapidly iterate and experiment until things are right. Experimentation might be costly and risky but the rewards are significant. New services and products can occur through experimentation. Consumers preferences change and and you have to keep track by experimenting innovations and observation.

3.Curiosity: Be curious about  why things are the way they are. Curiosilty as a state includes memory, attention and learning. Cultivate your curiosity and remain open to new experiences that will plant new ideas!

4.Refuse to accept what the majority things about your idea:  Innovators barely talk about their thoughts or future plans and when they do it, they choose the right people that are positive and not judgmental. Negative people are never around risk takers. Any other opinion is respected but has no power to alter any stage of the plan.  So, surround yourself by like minded people that they only going to lead to higher.

5.Discover your purpose in life: You have to create and maintain a strong purpose in life that generates attitudes of discipline. Try to stay focused on your purpose no matter what the obstacles are.  Sometimes, you might lose your courage or the obstacles might seem insuperable but keep in mind that there is always a solution. Drive your mind to thing about a second plan and approach every aspect of the problem that you have to solve.

6.Create your future  not just observe it :People coming up with new ideas because they prefer to ‘build’ rather than to observe other doing things.  They rarely take time off as they trully engage theirselves with everything they create.  In other words, try to combine information and create new needs.

7.Scale innovation to a level that can affect many: Meet the challenge of creating a strategy that will scale up successful innovations that will  truly make and impact on a large number of consumers.

8.Believe that anything is possible: Begin a new business under the mindset that everything is possible. People that act with that in mind they do not fear about failure and obstacles and they are confident, which means that most of the times they achieve their goals and their ideas are innovative.
