FIXED VS GROWTH MINDSET ?
Our mindset is critical to our success and growth. According to Stanford psychologist and researcher, Carol Dweck, there are two kinds of mindsets — the fixed mindset and the growth mindset. These mindsets play a crucial role in shaping our lives and capacity to learn.
It is important to understand that we may fall in either fixed or growth mindset in certain situations. At different times of the day or when faced with various scenarios or challenges, we may show characteristics and actions of these two mindsets. We might be on a growth mindset today, then slip into a fixed mindset tomorrow.
Knowing the characteristics of these mindsets, we can be able to identify what mindset we have at any moment, figure out the cause, and recalibrate our perspective. This will help us focus on more positive actions and behaviours that will drive us to grow and succeed.
