Growth Mindset

Growth Mindset: People who believe their abilities can be developed from hard work, practicing will lead to developed skills, and receiving feedback from others.

Fixed Mindset: People who believe they are not capable of developing skills and/or changing and will always stay the same.

What can we learn from Growth Mindset?

A growth mindset teaches us that challenges are opportunities for us to grow, learn, and focus on the improvements that we make. We need to learn from our mistakes and practice to be able to build skills and talent. Every person in this world is a teacher -where they teach someone something and is a learner-where we learn from others.
