FIXED VS GROWTH: THE TWO BASIC MINDSETS THAT SHAPE OUR LIVES
It is a fact that what we think is what we become. Our thought process can be our biggest cheerleader or our biggest enemy. Our mind plays a very powerful role
Some may accept failure and live with it, and some may constantly work hard to do better and to improve. Yes, failures can be painful but how we deal with them and come out of them is in our hand and our mindset. A ‘fixed mindset’ assumes that their character, intelligence, and creative ability cannot get better with time, persistence, and efforts. They give up easily with the fear of failure and a belief that they cannot improve.
Basic kids spoken-English classes Dehradun, The Talk Room says that a ‘growth mindset’ on the other hand, finds freedom in their thought and beliefs. They constantly believe in improving, and they are flexible with changes. They take their failure as an opportunity to develop new skills and grow. Out of these two mindsets, which we manifest from a very early age, it greatly influences our behavior, attitude, decision making in both personal and professional contexts, and also becomes the reason for our happiness.
Kids start showing the sign of a fixed mindset or growth mindset from a very early age. Having a growth mindset is much better than a fixed mindset. A fixed mindset restricts and is not flexible to influence us to make changes which may affect the entire mindset and personality of a kid.
A growth mindset will continuously motivate them to keep learning and doing better with a positive attitude. A growth mindset helps to be successful and to be okay with various new situations in life.
We all have different sentiments, triggers that can activate a fixed mindset. Shifting from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset is not a cakewalk. To imbibe a growth mindset within us, we need to do some research and development within ourselves. Examples are mentioned below.
Instead of telling I cannot do, try saying I can do better.
Instead of telling it is frustrating, say it is okay to fail.
Replace this is hard, with I don’t know yet.
We can bring the change, within us which we wish to see. It is never too late to learn, our brain is highly adaptable to new changes. When we come out of our comfort zone, we give permission to our brain to accept and adjust to new changes. To promote a growth mindset within yourself or kids or any adults, start praising & loving yourself, be open to new opportunities, have the frequent urge to keep learning something new, face your failures come out of it with great learnings. Carol Dweck has very beautifully explained this in her book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success.
