Growth vs. Fixed Mindset
Change your mind and it will change your entire life.
What is a Fixed Mindset
These individuals are justified in who they are. They believe they were born with a set level of talent, intelligence, skills and this is unchanging. For this reason, they’re less likely to seek challenges and opportunities, but are content in situations where these views of complacency are affirmed; not being motivated to try anything new or take healthy risks that will develop their skills. These individuals believe that talent alone is the basis of success.
Dangers of a Fixed Mindset
What is a Growth Mindset
Individuals with a growth mindset believe skills (i.e. intelligence, talents) can be established through commitment, discipline and hard work. These individuals are more likely to enjoy learning through the success of others, seek out challenges, and see failure as an opportunity to develop.
