At PITON we talk about professional development, achievement and success.
We encourage members to share, collaborate and grow.
Today’s theme is growth mindset. Raise your hand if you know what it means?
Why mindset is relevant to our mission?
Our emotions drive actions and our actions yield results.
The significance of mindset is that it determines our emotions.
There are two main types of mindset:
Fixed and growth.
People with fixed mindset have different impression on success or failure than people with growth mindset.
People with fixed mindset believe in fixed capacities, talent or strengths. A person with fixed mindset is demanding people’s approval. They don’t believe in effort. To them, effort is equal lack of intelligence. Their failure determine their weaknesses and there is no drive to try hard.
People with growth mindset on the other hand thrive in challenges. Failure means more effort. It does not cause negative emotions that could prevent further effort. They don’t need people’s approval. Such feeling drives different results!
Knowing the difference, ask yourself in which areas of my life do I demonstrate fixed mindset?
The good news is mindset can be changed through awareness and practice!
