Episode 9: The Adventure of Mindsets Part 3 - Why Change Your Mindset?

Becky and Diana continue to explore the book Mindset by Carol Dweck, and discuss why anyone would decide to change their mindset, especially if things are going okay.

They discuss:

  • Figuring out your pain point – how much pain do you have to experience before you decide to change?
  • Your Mindset is just one piece of the puzzle that is your personality.
  • Your Mindset can change completely, or depending on the situation.
  • One aspect of the Growth Mindset is being vulnerable enough to ask questions.
  • Working on acquiring a Growth Mindset can start with a baby step.
  • Fixed Mindsets frequently look at situations as all or nothing – good/bad, succeed/fail.
  • Effort, in a Fixed Mindset is assumed to be bad. The Fixed Mindset assumes things should come easy.
  • When you have a Growth Mindset, you expose yourself to the journey of effort.
  • It can be challenging for someone with a Growth Mindset to have a Fixed Mindset leader.
  • Uniquely Brilliant people have Growth Mindset in a Fixed Mindset World.
  • Growth Mindset people work to figure things out – they don’t jump to label experience as either good or bad.
  • The Fixed Mindset assumes there is one right way to do things.

STAMP OF BRILLIANCE – When you take the time to make a situation work for everyone involved, you are modeling the essence of the Growth Mindset. You are putting effort into understanding everyone’s needs and creating a solution instead of assuming that someone is wrong and someone else is right.Stamp of Brilliance
