Growth Mindset Vs Fixed Mindset - Why It Matters When Designing Your Dream Life
By Mia Fox
Author, Money Mindset & Manifestation Coach
There are two types of mindsets: Growth and Fixed. Having a growth mindset can help you achieve your dreams because you'll believe that you're able to learn and improve in any way necessary. A fixed mindset most likely keep you stuck in your current patterns.
You may find yourself in a situation where you've been stagnant for a little while. You've been living every day in mostly the same way without creating any lasting progress. It can be frustrating and discouraging when you don't feel like you're expanding in any way.
You know there is a sense of fulfillment, purpose, and enjoyment that is out there, but you haven't figured out how to attain it for yourself. Many other people seem to live lives that are fortunate and progressive.
So why can't you?
Having a growth mindset could be the key to changing your life for good. When you have a growth mindset, you know that you can learn any skill that you need to achieve your goals.
It allows you to bend and change with the conditions in front of you. It also allows you to see setbacks as learning experiences instead of failures.
You can be less insecure and tied to outcomes when you continue to have the mindset that you can grow and change with the times. Fixed mindset sufferers are unable to do this.
Growth Mindset vs. Fixed Mindset
A growth mindset is a fertile field of possibility for budding success seekers. With a growth mindset, anything is possible. You will not be stuck in the same patterns, with the same skills and intelligence forever.
You can change and grow with whatever comes your way, and every experience is a teacher that helps you shape yourself for a better future.
A fixed mindset is stuck in the past and can never learn or grow. It is the idea that you can only be so smart, so funny, so capable of achieving certain things.
It makes people attached to outcomes and can cause anger and sadness when things don't go according to plan.
It is an intense negative focus on present inconveniences instead of an allowance of positivity to come from anything that happens. It can be frustrating, helpless, jealous, and discouragement.
Why It Is Important to Have a Growth Mindset When Designing Your Dream Life
It is so important to be able to learn and grow as things come your way in life. Without a growth mindset, you will have trouble manifesting your dreams because, to make your dream life a reality, you need to change many things within yourself.
The person that has gotten you where you are is not the same person who will get you to where you want to go.
With a growth mindset, you know that you'll be able to build the qualities necessary to make you the person who can achieve it.
Having a growth mindset is the same as developing a success mindset.
Successful people know that there are going to be challenges on their path to achievement. They understand that bending and learning as these challenges come about will enable them to overcome instead of being stopped in their tracks.
When you're designing your dream life, it is essential to imagine what types of obstacles will be in your way. What behaviors will you need to change? What beliefs do you need to work on? What kind of person will you need to become?
This is btw. a main topic I cover in my manifesting book, where I share my signature advanced manifesting formula, that allows you to create your own inner coach.
The growth mindset is one of open possibilities and allows you to flourish like a plant growing towards the light that feeds it.
Benefits of a Growth Mindset
People who employ a growth mindset are free from restrictions on possibilities. Anything is available to the person who can grow and learn from the life that exists before their eyes.
You can become more intelligent, socially intuitive, creative, loving, grateful, attractive, and successful by having the right mindset.
Opening yourself up to those possibilities is the first step towards becoming the person you need to be to manifest your dreams.
How to Get a Growth Mindset
If you're currently stuck in a fixed mindset, that is okay. You can begin to learn and change right now. By acknowledging that you have a fixed mindset and that you need to change, you are already taking steps towards becoming a more growth-oriented person.
To begin cultivating a growth mindset, you will be required to take a reflective look at all of the aspects of your life and your perspective towards them.
These areas include your relationships, finances, physical and mental health, and spiritual path.
For example, if you are single and you are frustrated about it, think about your perspective on your situation. Do you feel helpless, tired, stressed, and fed-up? If so, you are likely stuck in a fixed mindset.
If, however, you feel hopeful, encouraged, lively, and excited, you are probably operating with a growth mindset.
This can be applied to any area of your life that you want to work on. First, you need to accept that anything that needs to change within you is your responsibility.
Then you can take it upon yourself to read the books, find the mentors, and practice the actions to pull yourself closer to your goal.
With the mere identification that you can learn and grow, you are transferring your mindset from fixed to growth. The important thing is to follow through on your growth based actions.
Conclusion: Change From a Fixed Mindset to a Growth Mindset, it Is Your Conscious Decision
Even if you're stuck right now, you don't always have to be. By changing from a fixed to a growth mindset, you're on the right track to experiencing your hopes and dreams in full.
If you cling to your current mental state, then you will continue to feel the negative emotions that you feel and cause you the anxiety and fear you're experiencing. You can begin to grow and change right now.
