A Growth Mindset

new mindset

I recently read “Mindset: The New Psychology of Success” by Carol Dweck.  In the book, the researcher shows us how we can learn to our full potential by developing a “growth mindset.”

People with a growth mindset take on challenges and learn from errors, whereas people with a fixed mindset see errors as failure and stop trying.

In this 10-minute video, Dweck explains research on mindsets and ways that the growth mindset can be encouraged by rewarding the use of effort, strategy, and progress.

“Effort is what makes you talented,” says Dwerk.    She reminds us that “no matter what your ability is, effort is what ignites that ability and turns it into accomplishment.”

People with a growth mindset take charge of the processes that bring success.  They make learning a priority and take on challenges.

To encourage your growth mindset, consider how you take on challenges and deal with errors.  Rather than getting discouraged by failure, view errors as challenges and find out what actions you need to take in order to grow.  Use positive self-talk and visualize yourself succeeding.
