Growth Mindset

According to mindset works:

When students and educators have a growth mindset, they understand that intelligence can be developed. Students focus on improvement instead of worrying about how smart they are. They work hard to learn more and get smarter. Based on years of research by Stanford University’s Dr. Dweck, Lisa Blackwell Ph.D., and their colleagues, we know that students who learn this mindset show greater motivation in school, better grades, and higher test scores.

Here’s two videos that explain and describe growth mindset as they know it:

An online educator: Khan Academy and what they offer to educate and help people grow.

This video is one of Ted Talks with Angela Lee Duckworth, Psychologist.

Nobody is born to be experts immediately. We learn and grow.

A quote from Shabbir Dahod of tracelink:

While intelligence is required, Angela demonstrated that the determining factors for success were perseverance, hard work and a drive to improve.” – Shabbir Dahod, tracelink

Where does that drive to improve come from?

When we were babies learning to do the basic things like cooing, rolling over, crawling, talking, walking we were encouraged by our family and friends. When one is encouraged they are inspired and motivated to improve and do more. As a child grows they lean in one direction or the other in what interests them. With encouragement they develop those interests. Even if someone isn’t strong in one area, they can learn and grow.

It all comes down to positive mental attitude. Negative doesn’t breed positive. So, we need to have a positive mindset along with the drive to improve. It helps to surround oneself with positive people who support you.
