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​​​​
