Today we are going to look at 2 distinct ways in which individuals view intelligence and learning, through mindset.
Mindset is a simple idea discovered by world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck, in decades of research on achievement and success.
Mindsets are beliefs, beliefs about yourself and your most basic qualities.
In her book, Mindset, Carol asks a questions right away, “Think about your intelligence, your talents, your personality.
Are these qualities simply fixed traits, carved in stone and that’s that?
Or are they things you can cultivate throughout your life?
Teagan Bruce, Co-Founder of RadiantGirl.org, takes us step by step on how we can transition from a “Fixed Mindset” to a “Growth Mindset”.
When we are living with a fixed mindset, we believe that our traits, our intelligence, and who we are cannot be changed. It keeps us concerned with how we will be judged and comparing how we measure up.
When we have a growth mindset, we see our qualities as things that can be developed through dedication and effort.
We see “failure” as an opportunity for growth and understand that no one has ever accomplished great things without years of passionate practice and learning.
So how do we foster this mindset in ourselves and our children?
