Take five minutes today and reflect: What are the ‘fixed mindset’ traits you are regularly applying?
Earlier this week I found myself thinking that I might fail and make a mistake by doing something that I have only rarely done before. Fearing to be not good enough and thereby losing confidence.
On the flip side I have covered for a colleague and learned so much. By being stretched I am inspired and thrive much more than by acting within my comfort zone.
A leader that I have always admired kept saying ‘It is your choice’. And she was so right.
No matter how many ‘fixed’ qualities we identify in ourselves, there is tremendous power in making a different choice.
And anyone can change how they think. And preventing or propelling us to live up to our full potential.
How can you better harness this superpower of a growth mindset for yourself and your teams?
