In order to understand how to take on the practice of creating a growth mindset,
first, take a look at the difference between the two mindsets; a fixed mindset
and a growth mindset.
A Fixed Mindset
A fixed mindset, especially in the area of academics, intelligence, and study
dictates that it is what it is or that the status is fixed, unchangeable and
with no room for growth or potential.
A Growth Mindset
A growth mindset takes on a different perspective. A growth mindset takes on
challenges as a way to expand and grow. It also dictates that there is room for
hard work, learning, and achieving.
How to Gain a Growth Mindset
Exercise Your Way to a Growth Mindset
You might be asking, What does exercise have to do with gaining a growth
mindset? The answer is there is a different type of exercise you can do. It's
not the physical kind it's the mental kind.
When you exercise your brain, you give this muscle a chance to grow and expand
over time. If you want to gain a growth mindset, you need to take on new,
challenging things. Once your brain sees that it can overcome challenges, taking
on more challenges becomes easier over time. Once your mind recognizes you are
taking on something new, fear can become minimized and new things will be placed
in the part of your brain compartmentalized as something not to be feared.
If you have a certain learning capacity and accept that this is your limit, then
that will be your limit. However, on the other hand, if you work harder, take on
more learning, and then work even harder, you will begin to notice a shift. You
will begin to challenge your own status quo.
The harder you work the more results and rewards you will see. You will shift
your mindset to understand that the more effort you put in, the more effort you
will get out. It doesn't have to stop at a certain static place. You can work
hard, you can put in more effort, and you can achieve different results.
Have you ever heard a point of view or a perception that was astonishing and
bold? Do you sometimes see how other people set the bar a bit higher, try new
things, and work harder? Just because you have to work harder, does not mean you
cannot be more successful. Take some time to examine a certain area of your
life, such as academically, and see if you can t think outside the box, enter
new territories, and achieve higher goals.
After all, anyone who has made a medical breakthrough or achieved a higher goal
has probably done so by working harder, trying new things, and stretching way
outside of their comfort zone; and you can too.
