With Fixed mindset we measure ourselves against others. With growth mindset we are focused on how we are getting better.
To develop your growth mindset try this:
Notice – when do you find yourself comparing yourself to others?
When you catch yourself making this comparison take a moment to pause, and think again.
From a growth mindset consider your own goals, priorities and standards and compare yourself to these. How are you measuring up? What action could you take to improve?
You can get a lot accomplished with a fixed mindset until you hit a wall.
I had fixed mindset about most areas of my life for most of my life and still managed to developed a flourishing professional career but it came at a cost: High levels of stress. A loud inner critic. A striving to be good enough instead of a focus on getting better.
Making the shift to growth mindset has had a significant positive impact on my coaching and my business. I have developed the Grit and Growth Summer Retreat in the City to pass along what I have learned and to help people make this crucial shift from fear to dare. I hope you can join me.
