Growth mindset

Some of us believe deep down that people really can change. These growth oriented assume that it’s possible, for example to get smarter if you are given right opportunities and support and if you try hard enough and if you believe you can do it. Conversely, some people think that you can learn skills, but your capacity to learn skills – your talent – can’t be trained. The problem with holding the latter fixed mindset view – and many people who consider themselves talented do – is that no road is without bumps. Eventually you’re going to hit one. At that point having a fixed mindset becomes tremendous liability. With a fixed mindset you’re likely to interpret these setbacks as evidence that, after all, you don’t have the “right stuff” – you’re not good enough. With a growth mindset you belive you can learn to do better.

  1. Excellent quote by Ms Duckworth! Thanks for sharing Vrunda.

    Flexibility is being open to change and the key to help us overcome obstacles and recover from mistakes to reach our greatest potential.

    It also reinforces kindness and compassion. ❤
