Growth Mindset vs Fixed Mindset

Growth Mindset:

1. Embraces Challenges: Sees them as opportunities to learn and grow.

2. Persists in the Face of Setbacks: Views failure not as a sign of unintelligence but as a springboard for growth.

3. Sees Effort as the Path to Mastery: Understands that effort and time are necessary to learn and improve.

4. Learns from Criticism: Takes feedback as a source of information for learning and development.

5. Finds Lessons and Inspiration in the Success of Others: Uses others' success as motivation to grow.

Fixed Mindset:

1. Avoids Challenges: Fears that failure might expose a lack of ability.

2. Gives Up Easily: Views obstacles or setbacks as insurmountable and proof of limited capability.

3. Sees Effort as Fruitless: Believes that having to try hard indicates a lack of innate talent.

4. Ignores or Deflects Criticism: Often takes it personally and sees it as an attack rather than an opportunity to improve.

5. Feels Threatened by the Success of Others: Perceives others' success as a benchmark against which their own abilities fall short.
