Is it worth the risk of a growth mindset

January 13, 2022

Is it worth the risk of a growth mindset? ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Growth mindset being the ability to see that your skills and aptitude in a certain area aren’t fixed and that you can grow 

 

You exhibit a growth mindset when you take a foreign language class and learn how to speak Spanish ​​​​

 

Fixed mindset is the belief that ​you are the way you are because of things outside of your control, like genetics

 

A lot of people think they’re genetically incapable of being good at maths​

 

Everyone has a mixture of growth and fixed mindsets in different areas of life

​ 

Y​ou might know you can get better at your job​ as a sales consultant, and also think that you will never know how to use the sales system software because “you’re just no good with technology”

 

Deep down, you know that if you applied the same effort you did when learning sales you could also learn how to use new software, however you don’t really want to

 

This knowledge is power

 

Anything that a human has done, and that has been taught to other humans, you can also do, if you decide to put enough resources to learning

 

You just need to decide on the language

 

Every time you say you can’t do something, catch yourself, and replace can’t with won’t

 

​Of course, not everything is important enough to you to change to a growth mindset, and that’s okay

 

You can do anything in life, you just can’t do everything

 

Health and fitness, a lot like maths, is an area people commonly have fixed mindsets

 

“I’ve tried everything, I just can’t lose weight”

 

More likely you’ve tried the same thing 100x for the same results

 

You probably did one of these:

 

  1. a) ​​You exercised heaps more without paying any attention to food​​ or;

 

  1. b) You ​​exercised more and tried to stick to a strict meal plan 100% of time

 

A fixed mindset keeps you going back to the same, safe plan, that will give you a predictable result

 

EVEN if that result isn’t what you say you wanted

 

However, a growth mindset accepts the risk of failure and goes for it anyway

 

It’s scary, it’s new, it’s change

 

And don’t kid yourself, good change or bad change, it’s both scary and fraught with danger

 

But do it anyway ​

 

There’s a better way for those who want to bet on themselves

 

It’s worked for others, and it’s been taught to many

 

Quick results, that are also sustainable results

 

Just decide, is it worth the risk of a growth mindset? ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

​​​

​Is there someone you care about that you think would benefit from this? Pass it on, and consider it a good deed done for the day

 

And, you’ll be doing something good to help someone, and they’ll get a reminder that you care​​​​
