The gift and curse of Growth Mindset

When you know that you can improve at anything, the world is full of abundant possibilities. But, it’s also harder to let yourself off the hook.

I’ve written off my ability to go to the gym more times than I can count. I usually say, “I’m more of a sports person.” “I’d rather get my exercise from hiking or surfing.” or “My body isn’t meant for lifting weights.”

But, that’s my fixed mindset talking. I was trying to let myself off the hook.

A world exists in which I overcome that self-talk and a growth mindset will help me get there. The gym is just one, tiny example. Growth mindset can be applied anywhere. Your capacity is not fixed. Work at it, and you will improve.

Could there be any more empowering notion?
