Do You Have a Fixed Mindset? Here's How to Change It - Better Humans - Medium

Have you ever wondered why some people realise their potential while others who are just as talented don’t?

Kenneth Mikkelsen's insight:

People with the growth mindset aren’t discouraged by failure; they don’t even think about it. They know they’re learning.

They don’t just seek challenge; they thrive on it.

They understand that their talents and abilities can be developed through effort, good teaching and persistence.

In this talk, she describes two ways to think about a problem that’s slightly too hard for you to solve. Are you not smart enough to solve it … or have you just not solved it yet? A great introduction to this influential field.

The Incredible Benefits of a “Get Better” Mindset

The Incredible Benefits of a “Get Better” Mindset | Knowledge Broker |

In this talk, researcher Heidi Grant Halvorson explores the mindsets needed to ensure personal growth. Mainly, we should avoid a “Be Good” mindset - one where we are constantly attempting to prove our superiority to the world. Instead, we should embrace a “Get Better” mindset - where we always perceive ourselves as having more to learn. When we embrace a Get Better mindset, we welcome risk and are less afraid of failure, both key to personal development.
