Growth Mindset

What is a growth mindset?

With talent and intelligence put aside, a growth mindset is reflected in perseverance and effort. Rather than accepting intelligence as a fixed trait, which suggests one may simply be born with it, a growth mindset is an optimistic belief that you can learn whatever you set your mind to. Simply stated, what the mind can conceive, it can achieve.

How to keep yourself in a growth mindset

  1. Always have a positive outlook on the situation
  2. Put forth the appropriate effort — No pain, no gain
  3. Don’t ignore criticism, but rather learn from it
