How To Grow Your Mindset
Growing your mindset is simple in concept: you must be open to change and willing to adapt to it.
If you ever want to grow your chances of success, you need to grow your mindset.
This is something that I learned when I first started my self improvement journey. This is what led me to become a writer and generating enough money to support myself financially.
A growth mindset.
Before all of this, I was someone who didn’t know where to go in life, pursuing a career in accounting and eventually becoming a sales rep for a credit card company. Even though I was going somewhere with my life, I felt stuck.
After work, I felt drained and lounged around with no vision or ambition for anything.
But deep down, I had that mindset and when I got serious and started to work on my business, it bloomed into what it is today.
Whether you have a direction in life or not, growing and changing is part of our course. If we can’t learn to grow or be open to change, we can’t advance.
This is a concept people fail to understand as so many of us resist change or generally feel stuck and are unsure what to do. This isn’t to say a growth mindset is the only thing you ever need, but to find any success, this is the way to grow your mindset.
What Is A Growth Mindset
Carol Dweck explained what a growth mindset is in 2014 in the TED talk “The Power Of Believing That You Can Improve.”
In the video she explained what a growth mindset is:
“A growth mindset is when students understand that their abilities can be developed,”
But merely understanding that we’re capable of growth isn’t entirely what a growth mindset is all about. While knowing is one thing, over the years, self improvement writers and life coaches have taken it a step further.
For myself, I feel that a growth mindset, in essence, is knowing that our abilities can be developed…
