Miracle Grow for Life: A Growth Mindset
What’s a growth mindset vs. a fixed mindset? In a fixed mindset people believe their basic abilities, their intelligence, their talents, are just fixed traits that do not change. In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—our brains act more like a muscle that develops than a fixed computer processor.
