Fixed Vs. Growth Mindset

New science from Stanford University shows there is a mindset that almost always leads to failure: a fixed mindset. One with a fixed mindset sees themselves and the world as unchanging. Simultaneously, they see the worst in themselves, in others, and in all situations.

The entire context of the USA 2016 campaign was centered around seeing the opposing candidates in the worst possible light. It also created a sense that we were doomed if our chosen candidates did not win.

One with a growth mindset, which you’re about to master, sees things very differently. They understand that the world is constantly changing. They see themselves, and others, in a completely different light. Rather than see the worst in a situation – which completely disempowers them and guarantees failure – they see everything as an opportunity for growth.
