Some moments ago, I was speaking with a friend of mine on how success should be viewed. She said success in life is all about how we deal with failure. Her postulation was this, it’s either we have a rigid mindset towards what happens to us or we find a way to develop a growth mindset. She described the approach to failure of people with the growth mindset this way;
“Failure is information, we choose to label it failure, but it’s more like, ‘This didn’t work, and I’m a problem solver, so I’ll try something else.’” More often the way we process our failures matters more than the outcome in itself! It’s that simple
However, common sense would suggest that having ability, like being smart, inspires confidence. It does, but only while the going is easy. The deciding factor in life is how we handle setbacks and challenges. People with a growth mindset welcome setbacks with open arms.
Regardless of which side of the chart you fall on, you can make changes and develop a growth mindset. What follows are some proven strategies that will fine-tune your mindset and help you make those changes you desire. It’s as simple as that!
