Think Bigger: Why a Growth Mindset Matters

performance purpose success

A growth mindset is a concept developed by psychologist Carol Dweck, which refers to the belief that one's abilities and intelligence can be developed and improved over time through dedication, hard work, and learning. People with a growth mindset tend to embrace challenges, persist in the face of obstacles, see effort as a path to mastery, and learn from criticism. They view failures as opportunities for growth and are inspired by the success of others. In contrast, those with a fixed mindset believe that abilities are innate and unchangeable, leading them to avoid challenges, give up easily, and feel threatened by the success of others. Cultivating a growth mindset can lead to greater resilience, motivation, and ultimately, achievement.
