Understanding Mindsets

Understanding Mindsets

In life, we all have different ways of thinking about ourselves and our abilities. Did you know there are 2 main types of mindsets?

  • Growth Mindset: Believing that with effort and hard work, you can achieve anything.
  • Fixed Mindset: Believing that you are inherently bad at something and will never be able to do it.

It's important to have a growth mindset because it helps us develop and improve, while a fixed mindset can hold us back from reaching our full potential.

Fixed Mindsets

Fixed Mindsets

Fixed mindsets can hinder growth and limit potential. It's important to recognize these common thoughts and behaviors so you can break free from them:

  • Fear of embarrassment: Making mistakes is seen as a source of shame
  • Avoiding challenges: Stepping out of one's comfort zone is seen as unnecessary because it may result in failure
  • Viewing failure negatively: Failure is seen as a sign of inadequacy, and giving up seems like the only solution
  • Lack of confidence: Believing I can't do it before even trying
  • Instant gratification: Expecting immediate improvement and criticizing oneself if it doesn't happen

  • It's okay to ask for help and keep trying until you understand.
  • Improvement takes time and you should celebrate even small wins!

When you're in a growth mindset, what that means is that you choose to see the struggle and challenge as an opportunity for growth and for learning and development

Individuals who believe their talents can be developed (through hard work, good strategies, and input from others) have a growth mindset. They tend to achieve more than those with a more fixed mindset (those who believe their talents are innate gifts).
