DAILY MINDSET

“Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.” — Joshua J. Marine

Everyone faces adversity. Not everyone responds the same way.

In Carol Dweck’s “Mindset”, there are two types: A fixed mindset, and a growth mindset.

In a fixed mindset, an individual is trapped within their own perceived limitations. When someone else gets the promotion or the job, it just “wasn’t meant to be”. They blame the world, they blame the organization for having a bias, they blame the weather. It is a mentality that clings to excuses, versus solutions.

A growth mindset is one of extreme ownership. A world of continual self reflection. If something didn’t go as planned, what can I learn from this? What can I do better next time? The growth mindset welcomes the short-term pain, knowing that this will only make them better tomorrow. Instead of jumping to excuses, the growth mindset creates the solutions.

Change our mindset, and the world around us changes with it.

We will find adversity. It will be today, tomorrow, or sometime this week. How will we respond? Will we blame the world, our conditions, the weather? Or will we take the harder path, and find what we can do differently next time?
