MORE IDEAS FROM Mindset
People with a fixed mindset usually say the ideal partner would:
People with the growth mindset hope their ideal partner is someone who would:
The growth mindset shows that people can change, but it doesn’t tell you how much change is possible or how long change will take.
The growth mindset also doesn’t mean everything that can be changed should be changed. We all need to accept some of our imperfections, especially the ones that don’t really harm our lives or the lives of others.
When people with a fixed mindset usually try to prove that they’re special. The problem is when special begins to mean better than others.
People who believe in fixed traits feel an urgency to succeed, and when they do succeed, they feel and display a sense of superiority because their victory means that they (and their traits) are better than the rest of the people.
Mindsets are just beliefs; powerful ones, but they’re just something in your mind, and you can change them.
Just by being aware of the two mindsets (fixed and growth), you can start thinking and reacting in different ways. It’s also important to realize that even if people have a fixed mindset, they’re not always in that mindset. Many people have elements of both.
From the point of view of the fixed mindset, effort is only for people with deficiencies. Needing it casts a shadow on your ability.
Effort also leaves you with no excuses. Without effort, you can always say, “I could have been ...” But once you try, you can’t say that anymore.
There are two main mindsets we can navigate life with: growth and fixed.
A. The Fixed Mindset
Our view of ourselves can determine everything. If we believe that our qualities are unchangeable — the fixed mindset — we will want to prove ourselves correct over and over rather than learning from our mistakes.
Mindsets drive what leaders do and why they do it.
Two different leaders might face the same situation but respond to it very differently. One leader might see the case as threatening, whereas the other leader might see it as an opportunity.
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.
