Adopting a Growth Mindset
Manage episode 347216191 series 3405012
Whether we’re aware of it or not, all of us take mental notes of what’s happening to us, what it means, and what we should do. Our minds are constantly scanning and interpreting the world. That’s how we stay on track and go through life. This is what is called a “mindset.”
Dr. Carol S. Dweck is one of the world’s leading researchers in the field of motivation and mindset building, and literally wrote the book Mindset. Dweck states that “mindsets frame the running account that’s taking place in people’s heads. They guide the whole interpretation process.”
In today’s world we’re constantly going against challenges, setbacks, and criticism. A growth mindset helps us step into the unknown, the ambiguous, the uncertain, and know that no matter what happens, we’ll adjust the sails and set us on the right track. When we put intention around our mindsets we grow towards a version of ourselves that makes change easy and helps us find more love and empathy in and around us.
In this episode we discuss what a mindset is and how to move from our own comfort zones and into a growth zone, that will lead to a deeper sense of compassion.
