Have you ever heard somebody tell you: "You are bad at it, you will never succeed in this." 😲

This is typically a fixed mindset. 🤦‍♂️

Neurosciences have proved that the human being is gifted to fit with a growth mindset. 🦸‍♂️🦸‍♀️

The human being can learn and change his situation. 🔃

Let's spot the inconsistencies of a fixed mindset in several topics:

𝐒𝐤𝐢𝐥𝐥𝐬 🧠

For a fixed mindset, skills are something innate/born with. Skills are fixed/unchangeable. 👎

For a growth mindset, skills are changeable/able to be developed. Skills are subject to improvement. 👍

𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐠𝐞𝐬 🏁

For a fixed mindset, challenges are something to avoid. It could reveal a lack of skill from that fixed mindset person. These fixed mindset persons tend to give up easily. 👎

For a growth mindset, challenges should be embraced. Challenges are opportunities to grow. Growth mindset persons are more persistent. 👍

𝐄𝐟𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐭 💪

For a fixed mindset, the effort is unnecessary 🤣 and fruitless. 👎

For a growth mindset, the effort is the path to improvement and is essential for mastery. 👍

𝐅𝐞𝐞𝐝𝐛𝐚𝐜𝐤 🗣️

For a fixed mindset, feedback is intrusive criticism or worse: a personal attack. 👎

For a growth mindset, feedback is useful/growth tool. And it helps for learning and progress. 👍

𝐒𝐞𝐭𝐛𝐚𝐜𝐤 🥊

With a fixed mindset, they blame others and get discouraged/hurt. 👎

A growth mindset generates inner excitement and supports harder work. 👍
