How to develop a growth mindset?
Our lives are full of challenges. You can either avoid it or overcome it. But, if you want to taste the true essence of life you must take the risk so that you grow, transform, and evolve into the best version of yourself. And taking risks along with documenting them thoroughly in your favorite diary notebooks is fulfilling in a big way!
So, what is it that’s keeping you trapped in the cocoon? It’s probably your mindset.
In our lives, we come across two types of people. One with a growth mindset and one with a fixed mindset.
Growth vs Fixed Mindset
People with a fixed mindset live a mediocre life. They refuse to take risks and limit their potential. Such people generally live in their cocoons and have stagnant characteristics, creativity, career and life.
On the contrary, the ones with a growth mindset are always ready to face challenges. They embrace failures and look at them as opportunities to learn. They accept criticism with grace and keep looking for opportunities to expand their potential. These are the people who achieve impeccable growth and success in their lives. Take a closer look, and you’ll find them happy at heart too.
When you seize every opportunity that comes your way, you live a life without complaints and regrets.
How to Develop a Growth Mindset?
According to Carol Dweck, one of the most renowned psychologists of all time. Our mindset has a lot of influence on how we think about our talents and abilities. If we can harness the power of a growth mindset, success will always be at our fingertips.
Most successful people are lifelong learners. Look at the world through the vision of a student. Read plenty of books, about great people, their life experiences, and absorb the teachings that will add value and purpose to your life.
Aim at becoming a better version of yourself every single day. To develop a growth mindset, don’t limit yourself to any boundaries. Look out for new challenges and say yes to opportunities that propel you to move out of your comfort zone. Remember that greatness begins beyond your comfort zone.
View failures as a stepping stone to success. A growth mindset comes with having an optimistic approach to your failures. JK Rowling’s Harry Potter series was rejected 12 times by publishers before it became the best-selling fantasy novel of all times and Rowling became the first person to become a billionaire by writing books. Remember, failures are an integral part of success.
Lastly, a fixed mindset limits you whereas a growth mindset sets you free. So, love challenges, be intrigued by mistakes, enjoy effort, and keep on learning. Also, don’t forget to journal the exuberating experiences of your life in diary notebooks or in a personal diary online. It’s always refreshing to relive your memories through the pages of a diary/journal.
