Fixed Vs Growth Mindset
  • A fixed or static mindset is a terrible disadvantage as life is a constant flux. Life’s challenges keep on coming and difficult situations and failure are all part of it. Being rigid will only make things worse and add unnecessary complications.
  • A growth mindset has the advantage of being adaptive and trainable, able to build the skills required to handle the obstacles and move ahead in life. A growth mindset learns from failure and makes corrections, instead of being bogged down.
