Carol Dweck's concept of the growth mindset is a game changer and a life saver!
I say this because her book "Mindset: The New Psychology of Success" helped me view this sometimes unforgiving monster called success from a very empathetic and hopeful perspective.
In honor of this brilliant author, I have picked out 10 growth mindset quotes that constantly remind me how important it is to focus on growth and the fact that success is a process and not a destination!
Here are the 10 quotes I chose below... call them growth mindset posters!
"No matter what your ability is, effort is what ignites ability and turns it into accomplishment"
"I don't mind losing as long as I see improvement or I feel I've done as well as I possibly could."
"Becoming is better than being. The fixed mindset does not allow people the luxury of becoming. They have to already be."
"True self-confidence is the courage to be open-to welcome change and new ideas regardless of the source"
"Success is about being your best self, not about being better than others; failure is an opportunity, not a condemnation; effort is the key to success."
"The growth mindset doesn't mean everything that CAN be changed SHOULD be changed. We all need to accept some of our imperfections, especially the ones that don't really harm our lives or the lives of others."
"What are the consequences of thinking that your intelligence or personality is something you can develop, as opposed to something that is a fixed, deep-seated trait?"
"When do you feel smart? When you're flawless or when you're learning?"
"Challenge yourself all the time! Don't praise intelligence or talent. Praise the Process."
"Mindsets are just beliefs. They're powerful beliefs, but they're just something in your mind, and you can change your mind."
