    Growth Mindset - what is it?

    We used to think that our intelligence was fixed – meaning we were either smart or we weren’t. Scientists have proven again and again that simply is not true. Our brain acts like a muscle – the more we use it, the stronger (and smarter) our brain becomes.


    A person with a fixed mindset may do these things: 

    - avoid challenges 

    -give up easily 

    -ignore feedback 

    -become threatened by other people’s success 

    A person with a growth mindset may do these things:

    -embrace challenges

    -give their best effort

    -learn from feedback 

    -become inspired by other people’s successes
