What Does Having A Growth Mindset Actually Mean?

Growth Mindset vs a Fixed Mindset

And why it’s important for a successful life. 

What is having a growth mindset?

Having a fixed mindset is to believe that your personal qualities (intelligence, personality, character, talents and abilities) are fixed. The ‘hand that you were dealt’ effectively.People with a fixed mindset tend to be always proving themselves. They are set in their ways and will avoid challenges, give up easily and consider effort as a waste of time (because it won’t change anyway).Those with a growth mindset however, use this ‘hand they were dealt’ as merely a starting point. They believe that these personal qualities can change and grow through learning, application and experience.

What is growth vs fixed mindset?

Some of the key differences between someone with a fixed mindset vs growth mindset is how they handle:- The challenges & obstacles they face,- Continued learning and effort,- Feedback & criticism and- The success of others

Growth Mindset Examples

When considering our current mindsets, we like to have examples to compare against. When considering how those with a fixed or growth mindset handle different situations and challenges, this graph shows some great examples.

 

What is a Growh Mindset and why is it important?

Learning, effort and resilience (produced by the growth mindset) are essential for achieving your goals and success.Your IQ, character, talents and abilities are not fixed. They can be changed and improved. Just because you didn’t do well at something when you were a kid doesn’t mean you can’t succeed at it now –  if you are willing to put in the time and effort to learn and develop.

Be open to the idea of unlimited potential. Who knows what can be achieved with consistent effort, learning and passion?
