Do You Have a Growth Mindset?
In a Tedx talk with Eduardo Briceno, the Co-Founder and CEO of Mindset Works, Eduardo explains that having a growth mindset will set you on a path to greater success than those who have a fixed mindset.
He says that the key to success is not because of effort, hard work or resilience, but it is the growth mindset that creates success.
We have to realize that we are not chained to our current capabilities and that we can change our own ability to think and create.
Once we realize that we can change our own abilities – that we can have a growth mindset, we can then bring our game to new levels.
An open mindset doesn’t look at a grade or a score, but looks at what they could do better next time.
People with a fixed mindset worry about how they are judged, while people with an open mindset focus the most on learning.
People with a fixed mindset, when are in a challenging situation, will give up and not show interest (as a way of not being judged). While people with an open mindset understand that setbacks are a part of growth.
