Our perspective greatly impacts the way we address challenges and obstacles. Having a growth mindset is key to making sure you don’t get stuck in a negative headspace and that you keep moving forward toward your goals.
A mindset is a group of beliefs that shape what you think and feel and ultimately influence how you act. There are two mindsets one can choose from, growth and fixed. A growth mindset sees obstacles and challenges as an opportunity to recalibrate and try a different approach. A fixed mindset sees failure as a hard stop and a limitation of what can be achieved.
