When I was reading Tim Grover’s book ‘Relentless’ recently, this quote really struck a chord within me. It’s a true representation of a growth mindset, rather than a fixed mindset.
👉 Growth Mindset: The hand you’re dealt is just the starting point for development. Based on the belief that your basic qualities are things you can cultivate through your efforts. (Carol Dweck)
👉 Fixed Mindset: Believing that your qualities are carved in stone. Creates an urgency to prove yourself over and over. (Carol Dweck)
This way I’m able to quickly pull myself up the next time I’m acting out of a fixed mindset. I then ask if I can reframe the story I’m telling myself to come from a place of growth instead. The next step is to take action in alignment with this new found angle.
As you move through this process, don’t beat yourself up. You can find happiness in the process as much as you do in the results. I don’t mind experiencing a ‘failure’ as long as I see improvement within myself. I see it as an opportunity to try again. ✅
