Mindset is defined as an attitude, disposition, mood, intention or inclination. It can also be said that your mindset is the way you think.
There are two primary Mindsets that people have…Fixed or Growth. Below you will see the differences between the two, but on the surface level…
Fixed is…you are who you are…you good at something or your not.
Growth is…you have the ability to learn, develop and become whoever you want to be.
Which one are you?
Just like many things, we become the product of our environment, so depending on your parents, family, friends, teachers you fall heavily into one or the other.
Here are some examples of famous Growth Mindset individuals and the obstacles they had to overcome.
Can you imagine if even one of them had a fixed mindset and when the rejection came their way, they gave up…wow, we would have missed out on their genius.
So, I come back to the question…which are you?
If you find yourself falling into the fixed, good news….you can change!
We have the ability to change our mindset from minute to minute if we wish, but overall there is the fixed and growth dominance.
In the video below I talk about the above as well as a study of 100’s of kids who were put into either a fixed or growth and see what happens…the results may shock you.
If you have kids, I strongly recommend you watch.
