There are two kinds of mindsets. One is fixed and the other one is focused on growth. Here are three things today that distinguish the growth mindset from the other.
- Talent, intellect, and failures are NOT set. It is possible to keep growing, at all ages from any background. True talent and intellect involve thousands of hours of finetuning.
- Focus on effort, strategies, tactics. Praising smarts is a failing scheme. It is the initiative and sense of responsibility that counts.
- Excuses are ego-talk. A person with a growth mindset owns the outcome of whatever they set out to do. First or last prize, win or lose.
