How to change your mindset

The 3 steps to encourage a change in mindset:

  1. Observe your mindset.
  2. Challenge your beliefs
  3.  Build a “growth” muscle.
Observe your mindset
You can’t begin to change a “fixed” mindset until you recognize it. 

Notice if you rush to conclusions about fundamental abilities:

  • Do you tell yourself that you’re no good at a particular task, so there’s no point attempting it 
  • Do you believe that success in certain kinds of activities are reserved for people who are naturally gifted?
  • Do you worry that if you try your hardest and fail at something, you’ll be exposed as “no good”?

Don't take anything personally
Absolutely nothing that other people say about you, is actually about you. The way a person is acting says a lot more about them and their inner issues than it does about you. Don't take it personally, because when you do, that means you acknowledge it and may even start to believe it.
