So, we want to give you the lowdown on mindset and help you understand why it is EVERYTHING. By knowing the ins and outs, it will change your way of thinking in order to help you succeed in business and in your personal life.

The 2 types of Mindset - Fixed v. Growth

People with a fixed mindset, believe that intelligence can not be enhanced, or that you either “have it or you don’t” when it comes to abilities and talents. Those with a fixed mindset don’t push themselves, do not challenge themselves and give up easily. They unfortunately and rarely excel at anything.

On the other hand people with a growth mindset do not allow anything to stop them from achieving goals and dreams. They believe that abilities and understanding can be developed through dedication and hard work.

So, there are no guesses as to which mindset you need to succeed. Right?

If you have a fixed mindset there is good news, you have a choice. You are not ‘stuck’ with your fixed mindset.. A fixed mindset can be changed, if you are fortunate to already have a growth mindset, use it as your superpower, it’s a gift you have.

Changing from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset.

Changing your mindset may take a while as you may have gotten into bad habits and bad habits can be hard to change, right? Wrong, that would come from someone with a fixed mindset. Bad habits CAN be changed through challenging your mind and thought process. It takes time and some practice, but it can be done!

Here are some tips to change your fixed mindset to a growth mindset.

  • View challenges as opportunities.
  • Don’t give up at the first hurdle, keep going!
  • Embrace change, see it as a positive.
  • Encourage feedback and ask for it.
