As I’m sure you all know, having a positive mindset is so important in life. It shapes our thoughts, our actions, our decisions and more. But did you know that there are two types of mindsets: growth and fixed?
Fixed is a mindset that doesn’t change over time. People’s innate skills, talents, and/or intelligence stays the same and does not improve. People with this mindset feel that their limitations prevent them from achieving their goals and ultimately give up on pursuing what they want.
Growth is a mindset that does change over time. People with this mindset feel that skills, talents, can improve. They take pride in learning new things, take obstacles & limitations as a chance to develop new skills as well as grow as a person. People with this mindset are more flexible in their thinking.
Yet, one can change from having a fixed mindset to a growth mindset. Some steps to help are:
- Shift the language you use when talking about yourself
- Focus on the process not the outcome
- Use your failures as a learning opportunity
- Do things that help you step out of your comfort zone
- Just be more flexible
