People with a Growth Mindset believe they can grow, develop, and master whatever skills and abilities they wish in life.
They enjoy learning and overcoming challenges, working outside the comfort zone and growing.
It includes the ideas we have about ourselves and the world around us.
These beliefs come from our innate dispositions, childhood experience and/or cultural/societal influence and are often entrenched.
If you believe you can’t learn new skills or change the way you work, look at the evidence that supports both your negative and positive beliefs.
This may not necessarily lead to a modification of those beliefs, but is an important start. You can use belief monitoring to keep track of your thinking.
Look at the costs and benefits of your current way of perceiving yourself and the world around you. Is it worth shifting to Growth Mindset?
List both the advantages and disadvantages. It will help you see how many great opportunities you let go of because you don’t believe in your capabilities.
Fake it until you make it. Even if you don’t fully buy into the new mindset, try acting as if you were.
Don’t believe you can learn a new language? Enroll in the language classes and participate, like everyone else. Watch how your confidence and your perception of your capabilities change.
After you’ve experimented a little with the growth mindset way of thinking, ask people from your close circle to comment on how your interactions with the world have changed.
Ask if they’ve noticed how this has affected your level of happiness, fulfillment or whatever it is you’re pursuing.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
