A fixed mindset accepts that our intelligence, character and creative ability are unchanging and static. Basically, you are given circumstances and must embrace them. Believing that your qualities are written on a stone/non-changing, produces a craving to prove yourself repeatedly. An uncompromising mindset can lead to job inactivity.

However, a growth mindset is founded on the belief that you can cultivate your inherent traits via your efforts and help you in continuous learning. It assumes that through experience and practice, everyone can develop and progress. Failure is viewed as an initial and stepping stone to success in a growth mindset. In reality, failing is a type of learning. Your success is defined by the number of times you have failed. A growth mentality isn’t a thing which comes on its own, there are ways you can control your mental attitude and initiate a growth mindset.

Ways to Control Mental Attitude

1 – Life of a Learner

Most people think that the learning part of the brain stops after you are done being a student or a candidate. That’s actually completely false, People with a growth mentality aggressively seek out learning opportunities that will lead to greater job success. Be nosy about everything. According to research, although less successful people read largely for fun, those at the top are hungry readers of self-help books. In fact, 85% of successful people read at least two self-help or instructional books per month. Another study “according to”, found that 30% of executives believe the willingness to keep learning is the most important trait for an employee to succeed.

2 – Breaking the limits

 A man is known to be at war with his own brain at all times. Controlling urges and not letting thoughts take over you is a sign of a growth mentality. One main way to promote a growth mindset is to break your barriers, exceed the limits, go beyond what you believe you are capable of. When you push yourself, you can exceed even your own expectations.

3 – Accepting failure

Developing a growth mindset involves viewing failure as good rather than a negative. Everyone experiences setbacks. The trick is to learn from each one and make better decisions. Successful people usually fail on their way to the top. There are so many examples of the richest people of the world suffering and accepting failures. SpaceX, company of the richest man on Earth, Elon Musk, suffered a lot of failures. Starship launches were complete failures and 1 Falcon 9 launch were partial failures. His growth mindset of not being demotivated because of these failures, made a man who he is currently. As Intellect Folks says “Success is defined by Failures”.

4 – Challenges

Whenever we challenge someone or bet someone on something, our brain gets motivated and overcomes the thought of giving up. Challenges are opportunities to move you closer to your goals and to improve. No one can reach their goals while being in their comfort zone. There are risks to be taken, sacrifices to be made, and goals to be achieved in a growth mindset. Stepping out of the comfort zone is crucial for exponential growth in business.

5 – Encouraging Self-Awareness

Continuous Learning and a growth mindset frequently start by encouraging self-awareness. Employees can better embrace challenges and explore opportunities for progress when they have a greater grasp of their own talents, shortcomings, and places for change. Self-awareness is the keystone for personal development since it allows people to discover areas where they may improve their abilities and knowledge. This is why they say self-learning is important, there is no other teacher better than yourself.
