So what is a 'growth mindset'?
After decades of research on achievement and success, World-renowned Stanford University psychologist, Carol Dweck, coined the terms growth mindset and fixed mindset.
A growth mindset refers to the belief that one's abilities, intelligence, and qualities can be developed and improved through effort, dedication, and learning. People with a growth mindset understand that their talents and capabilities are not fixed traits, but rather qualities that can be expanded over time.
A fixed mindset is the opposite. It's the belief that one's talents and capabilities are inherent traits, so we have a fixed amount of intelligence, skills, and potential that cannot be significantly improved.
As a result, individuals with a growth mindset generally embrace challenges as opportunities for growth and learning, viewing setbacks and failures as valuable feedback and stepping stones to further development. Rather than being discouraged by obstacles, they are motivated to persist and overcome challenges. Conversely, in a fixed mindset, effort is often seen as fruitless since abilities are considered fixed. Mistakes and setbacks are seen as indicators of personal inadequacy. This mindset can hinder personal development, learning, and achievement as individuals limit themselves and miss out on opportunities to develop new skills.
Whether you currently have a fixed mindset or a growth mindset, you can learn to change it.
