Perseverance Through The Mind
What is a growth mindset
What is a growth mindset?
A growth mindset is the way of thinking that you believe that you can do anything if you try hard enough. You embrace challenges in life and don't give up because of failure.
What is fixed mindset?
Fixed mindset is the way of thinking that you are born with a skillset that you cannot change, and you also can't improve, people with a fixed mindset are more likely to back down from challenges in life than others.
Why are there only these 2?
Why there mostly only these 2 mindsets, you don't have to belong 100% to a mindset. Most people are not. Most have quality's of the 2 but are still ruled by at least one so to speak.
The Difference: growth vs. fixed
The one thing that they have in common is that neither is permanent, you can change from growth to fixed and from fixed to growth in one second or throughout a lifetime of character change.
In the article "fixed vs. growth" by Maria Popova, she talks about how our lives are shaped by the two basic mindsets, and how one simple action in life can shape your future. That action is how each individual responds to failure in life. Now if somebody with a growth mindset runs in a race and comes out as second, they will see it as an opportunity to improve and grow from the loss. While somebody with a fixed mindset would see it as a sign that says " no matter how hard I try I will never make it any where in life".
This clearly outlines the differences between the two mindsets. A growth mindset embraces challenges and sees failure as a chance to improve throughout life. They also learn from criticism and find hope and inspiration in others success. Meanwhile a fixed mindset would back down from challenges and see failure as terminal, while finding the success of others intimidating.
This shows the differences and similarities we all share no matter what.
how to act
Think Before You Speak
how to change
First you have to learn to recognize your mind' s voice
When you approach a problem or a situation in life you will automatically say to your self " i can't do this its too difficult " you have to learn how to talk back to the voice and say " yes i can" once you are aware that you can do something realize that it won't be easy you will have to work hard to achieve your goal.
Next you need to learn how to accept challenges and failure on the path towards your goal
When you decide to take a step towards your new goal you can't expect that your going to accomplish it over night. You need to understand that its going to take hard work and perseverance past all adversities you face.
Find inspiration in others
When your competing and you come in second you need to keep your chin up and say to yourself " if they can do it so can i! nothing is stopping me" Then you will no longer feel intimidated by others success and that will help you believe in you chances to accomplish your goals.
This is a simple guideline that you should follow when trying to accomplish your goals, it will help you persevere and believe in your self when you are doing hard or simple tasks the most important thing to do is to believe in yourself no matter what.
