Growth Mindset vs Fixed Mindset: What Do You Have?

C'mon, no one wants to admit they have a fixed mindset!

But guess what? That's exactly what's stopping you from embracing a growth mindset.

We all juggle a mix of mindsets—both growth and fixed. But if you deny this reality, you risk saying one thing and doing another.

For instance, you may talk about growth but your actions don't align.

The consequence? Your growth mindset takes a backseat. And the worst? Your fixed mindset takes the lead—and nobody wants that!

So, how to fix this?

Step 1: Accept that you've got both mindsets.

Step 2: Keep an eye on your words and actions.

Step 3: Consciously align your actions with your growth mindset aspirations. Walk the talk, basically!

That's how you foster a growth mindset!

So, the next time someone questions your mindset, own up to having both, while actively fixing the fixed mindset and nurturing the growth mindset.
