Do you have a fixed or growth mindset?


I learned about Brain Pickings recently and am very much enjoying their articles!  Last week I read about Fixed vs Growth Mindsets and it really spoke to me, so I wanted to share it with you. I'll give you the gist of it if you promise you'll read it.  Here goes… 

1. We are born with all the intelligence we will ever have.
2. Making a mistake means you aren't smart.
3. This is the hand I was dealt and there's nothing I can do to make it better.
4. If I were smarter, this wouldn't take so much effort.

1. We are here to learn and the more we learn, the more intelligent we become.
2. Mistakes are not failure, they are simply a way of learning.
3. The hand I was dealt is just a starting point.  My effort and hard work make me even better!
4. I am smart because of the effort I make.
