Dr. Dweck states that everyone has a fixed and growth mindset. The fixed mindsets are engrained. You know that if you jump off of a cliff, your hard work will not lead to you flying. This is a normal mindset.
In many cases, individuals that have a fixed mindset believe in their talents, but they don’t put the effort into developing them.
Do you believe that your most basic abilities can be enhanced? If so, you know resilience and dedication can help you reach your goals. A growth mindset can help you reach your goals and is one of the key parts of every successful plan.
Strategize, believe and plan to reach your goals.
Your skills, habits and life can be changed with a growth mindset. Always striving to reach a new goal or find a new purpose is the key to success. Even if you find yourself needing coaching, this is just part of the growth process.
Tips to help cultivate this mindset include:
- Apply yourself to reach your goals, and understand physical and mental energy are required to meet your goals.
Find excitement in challenges, and master each challenge that comes your way.
- Don't seek the approval of others when trying to reach your goal.
Find a sense of purpose. Outline what the purpose of reaching your future you really means.
- Enjoy the process and keep trying to reach milestones – don't just focus on the final goal.
- Be realistic. Your goals take time. If you put unrealistic expectations for your goals, you’ll end up being unmotivated and unwilling to reach these milestones.
