The Biggest Little Word In The English Language
In her enlightening book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, Carol Dweck,identifies two vastly different approaches to life. She calls them “The Growth Mindset” and “The Fixed Mindset”. I borrowed this table off the internet from Reid Wilson.
What kind of mindset are you?
Do you look at challenges, obstacles, and failures as roadblocks?
Or do you see them as interesting puzzles that will be fun and rewarding to solve?
I like to think I’m a growth mindset guy.
But if it has always been your habit to approach life with a fixed mindset, that behavioral pattern can be tough to break.
If you are a fixed mindset person, making the leap to growth side can feel like you’re performing a standing broad jump across the Grand Canyon.
But it might not be as difficult as you think.
It recently occurred to me that chasm separating a growth mindset from a fixed mindset can be bridged by one simple, but powerful 3 letter word…
Here’s what I mean
I can’t play the violin… Yet (but given enough time and practice I’m sure I could).
I’m not a computer guy. I can’t build my own website… Yet.
I don’t understand automotive repair. I can’t fix my own car… Yet.
I’ve never been the biggest, strongest, fastest, or most athletic baseball player. I can’t throw the baseball 90 + mph…
