Find Out If You Have A Growth Mindset

My daughter Emily is in grade 1 and came home from school with “I have a GROWTH MINDSET!” sheet of paper (pictured). I just loved it and think it’s fantastic that they are teaching kids to have a growth mindset. Heck – some adults and business owners do not have a growth mindset! The growth mindset can be applied to kids, sports and of course business. It can make or break a person and their success.

First – I think it would make sense to say what a FIXED mindset is Ex: My team has a certain amount of talent and that won’t change. OR The economy is bad so there is no way I’ll meet my profit goals. Basically – a given situation is the way it is and can’t be changed.

GROWTH mindset is where you believe change can happen and a situation can change through perseverance.

And some great examples of growth mindset self talk is illustrated perfectly with my daughter’s school sheet!

I can always improve. There is always room for improvement – there is no limit on the goals you set for yourself and reaching them. I’m a firm believer that there is ALWAYS a solution a way to make any situation better or skillset improved.

Mistakes help me learn. Mistakes suck – there is no doubt about it. BUT – they tell us what breaks in the system there are – what elements of something is missing. If we take that information and create change – hey – we are all the better for it! See the positive in the mistakes.

I can learn anything that I want to. Damn skippy! Don’t sell yourself short. If you want it bad enough – you can learn it!Tweet: Don’t sell yourself short. If you want it bad enough – you can learn it! http://ctt.ec/5Nc67+ It feels great to be challenged and to learn something new and master it.

I like to challenge myself. Yep – as stated above – learn something new and accomplishing something outside of your comfort zone is an amazing feeling.

My effort and attitude make all the difference. So true – if you don’t put in the effort – nothing will change and you won’t get ahead. Plus if you have a positive attitude it’ll help you push through the challenging times and forge ahead to success.

I am inspired by people who succeed. Love this – My initial inspiration years ago was Lisa Sassevich. She started at home with young kids and look at her now! It’s a case of – you know what – if they can do it – so can I. Be inspired and learn from the best! Tweet: Be inspired and learn from the best! http://ctt.ec/oU4u3+

I persevere when I am frustrated. What a great lesson for kids and business owners! Don’t give up. If one thing doesn’t work – something else will. Chin up and keep plugging away or finding new solutions.

Some of these thoughts are instinctual – I’m ‘built that way’ but some were learned over the years. Plus I have an amazing Business Coach and fellow Mastermind Members that support and help foster my growth mindset. I hope you glean a few from this article too – and know you CAN do it. ANYTHING is possible.
