I would like to share something about the mindset that I had read in an article that I can’t seem to find now but however would like to share the gist of it.
Let me explain to you the well-known example! Remember the story of The Tortoise and The Hare?
The hare was so certain that he would win that he sat down and went to sleep during the race. The tortoise just plodded on and kept going, always thinking that he had a chance of winning. When the hare woke, he started running as fast as he could, but he was just too late the tortoise had won.
The hare had a fixed mindset. He believed that his innate ability would always mean that he would win whatever he did. The tortoise had a growth mindset. He believed that he needed to work hard and keep going if he was to win. He was also not afraid of failure or he would never have agreed to race the hare.
Thus what I feel is: Mindsets are not just important for learning new skills. They can affect the way that we think about everything. Cultivating a growth mindset could be the single most important thing you ever do to help you achieve success.
What mindset do you think you have or you prefer? Fixed
