How to Boost Your Growth Mindset (infographics)
Success is often about a positive attitude and mindset. We limit ourselves in our growth because we think we are not up to such challenging goals. We artificially lower our chances because we don’t think positively and lack a growth mindset. But we can boost our growth mindset ourselves if we think about problems and challenges a little differently. Instead of thinking negatively, we find something positive about every situation to encourage our competitiveness.
The important thing to remember is that no one is perfect without training. We have to try things out, look for areas where we can improve and start believing in ourselves that we can do it. By learning, we become better every day. We have to go through crisis situations to know that we can handle such a problem because we already have the experience. And we can build success on experience.
Of course we make mistakes when we learn. Even the best CEO is still learning and also makes mistakes. Every decision he makes is not perfect, but he builds on what he has already learned. And we need to do the same. We have to keep learning to get better. And we have to tell ourselves that we can do it. We can’t tell ourselves it’s too hard.
We usually think we’re not smart enough. It’s just that we usually compare ourselves to others in areas where they excel. And we excel at something else, we just don’t realize it. The vast majority of us have an area where we’re really smart. We just have to realize what we’re really good at and we can be very useful to others.
In the same way, we are often in a situation where we don’t know something or we can’t do it yet. Then it is the right opportunity for us to learn and practice something new. A little bit of learning doesn’t kill anyone. And it’s a great feeling when we can say we’ve mastered something new.
We don’t usually find the challenge very sexy. It means we have to get out of our comfort zone and start learning again. And we have to take risks because we’re at risk of failing. And we also have to start trusting ourselves. We have to think positive. We have to rediscover our growth mindset. But the feeling when we get it right, it’s divine.
The hardest thing is to endure and not give up. It is very easy to give up on something, but it does not support our desire to grow and learn new things. We often have to find the last remaining reserves of strength and will and keep going, even when it seems impossible. But despite the obstacles, we grow to the stars.
Finally, we must not tell ourselves that we are not good at something. Even if we’re not right now, that doesn’t mean we can never be. It’s just a matter of learning, positive thinking and a willingness to try.
