Change Your Mindset

It's not too late!

What is a Mindset?


  • Your mindset is your belief about your most basic qualities and abilities.


  • People with Fixed Mindsets believe intelligence and abilities are fixed and cannot be developed.


  • People with Growth Mindsets believe they can develop their brain, abilities, and talents.


  • Mindsets are learned.


  • Mindsets can be changed.

The Mindsets

A fixed mindset would say, "I am as smart as I am ever going to be".


A Growth mindset would say, "Intelligence is a changeable quality, a potential that can be developed".
