I’m not good at this

What am I missing

I give up

I’ll use a different strategy

It’s good enough

Is this really my best work

I can’t make this any better

I can always improve

This is too hard

This may take some time

I made a mistake

Mistakes help me to learn

I just can’t do this

I am going to train my brain

I’ll never be that smart

I will learn how to do this

Plan A didn’t work

There’s always plan B

My friend can do it

I will learn from them


What is Mindset?

Mindset research explains:

People equipped with a growth mindset work harder, are more persistent, and perform better under pressure than people with a fixed mindset. This is why people with a growth mindset (both students and adults) have been shown to learn, grow, and achieve more over time

Mindset is a simple idea discovered by world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck in decades of research on achievement and success—a simple idea that makes all the difference.

Two types of mindset

1. Fixed mindset – people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. They spend their time documenting their intelligence or talent instead of developing them. They also believe that talent alone creates success— without effort. They’re wrong.

2. Growth mindset – people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment. Virtually all great people have had these qualities.

Teaching a growth mindset creates motivation and productivity in the worlds of business, education, and sports. It enhances relationships.
