Mental Blocks

Have you ever faced self-doubt, indecision, or a fixed mindset?

Growth Mindset

How important is our mindset? How does it affect our actions? Can we change our mindset or is it fixed? What exactly is a mindset? Simply put, it's the established set of attitudes we have. There are two types of mindsets: The Fixed Mindset and The Growth Mindset. In a fixed mindset, people believe their qualities are fixed traits and cannot change. People who have a fixed mindset believe they were born with a fixed level of intelligence, so they don't pursue growth. In a growth mindset people believe their learning and intelligence can grow with time and experience. Our effort affects our success, so those who have growth mindsets work harder to achieve their goals. Why is mindset important? Fixed beliefs...
