A Growth Mindset.

I know we aren’t “children”, but do we really ever stop learning.

I was sent this article through Google Alerts, keyword “Business Mindset”
Promoting a growth mindset business culture in a fixed mindset society
A fantastic read, but then it sent me to the website noted below

One takeaway from that article:

Growth Mindset is the antithesis of the phony, instant success culture we now live in since it’s based on the traditional social values of the apprentice model of learning a craft: including perseverance, hard work, continual assessment and feedback, practice, and the development of wisdom gained by experience.

Developing a Business Mindset has been a wonderful journey for me over the past 6 decades.
When talking to others about the impact towards success many say they find it difficult.
The Business Mindset really thrives with a  Growth Mindset.

Over 30 years ago, Carol Dweck and her colleagues became interested in students’ attitudes about failure.

Part of her findings indicated that studies on different kinds of praise have shown that telling children they are smart encourages a fixed mindset, whereas praising hard work and effort cultivates a growth mindset.  When students have a growth mindset, they take on challenges and learn from them, therefore increasing their abilities and achievement.

If you are just starting your income-earning journey, are in the middle stage, or like me, in the twilight years opportunities abound for persons adopting a Growth-Business Mindset

I took this interesting Mindset Assessment on the MindsetWorks Website

Here are my results!

Your Current Mindset:- You understand that your intelligence is something that you can increase. You care about learning and you’re willing to work hard. You do want to do well, but you think it’s more important to learn than to always score well. This is what we call the “growth mindset.” 

Even though you have a good foundation, there are some areas where you could benefit from learning how to cultivate your growth mindset practices. For example, you may seek challenges and perform at a high level, but sometimes feel uncomfortable with criticism even if well-intended, or be rather hard on yourself for mistakes. You may have more potential than you are using! People who believe that they can increase their intelligence through effort and challenge actually get smarter and do better in school, work, and life over time. They know that mental exercise makes their brains grow smarter—the same way that exercise makes an athlete stronger and faster. And they are always learning new ways to work smart and build their brains.

Even though this website is geared toward enhancing the Growth Mindsets of Children, in so many ways regardless of our age we still are “children” yearning to learn.
I will never forget a simple phrase I was taught many years ago about LIFE:
We all go through 3 stages, The Learning Years, The Earning Years, and the Yearning Years.
Al 3 of them can be enhanced with a Growth Mindset… and it’s OK if the Business Mindset is part of that growth.

By The Way, are you using Google Alerts to stay abreast of content activity, relevant to your venue or niche, on the internet?
