How much do you want to achieve in your life?
You can change your mindset to achieve anything you want…and that includes the growth mindset of an Entrepreneur.
There are two types of people in this world, those that have a fixed mindset, and those that have a growth mindset, but you can be a bit of both. (Carol Dweck)
In the book ‘Mindset’ by Carol Dweck she studied how people who have a fixed mindset, think their intelligence is fixed, and they try to preserve the concept of looking smart. They avoid challenges because it could lead to failure, they give up easily because any set back may affect their self-image. They also see hard work and effort as a waste of time because they think they’re either talented enough to do something or they’re not.
However, on the other hand she discovered that….
People that have a growth mindset see their intelligence as something that can be changed, they see their mind as something that can be developed and they have an desire to learn. They embrace challenges, do not let setbacks get them down, and see hard work as a chance to master something. They don’t see the success of others as a threat, but as inspiration. If someone else can do it they can too.
Carol Dweck found that the only thing that separates people who succeed from those who don’t is whether or not they have a growth mindset.
