Friday Fuel! Growth Mindset

Happy Friday!

Welcome to all of our newest subscribers!  I am so happy to have more women (and men!) reading this weekly note of inspiration and education.   So lets get right into it…

 

“We need to shift from thinking ‘I’m not ready to do that’ to thinking ‘I want to do that and I’ll learn by doing it.‘” – This is one of my favorite quotes from Lean in and I couldn’t find it to be more true!  As women, we tend to shy away from this mindset because it is risky and we fear failure and criticism.  We are only limiting our ability for growth when we shy away from opportunities to try new things and take on new challenges.  The key is that women need to shift to a GROWTH MINDSET!  This means understanding and believing that your talents can be developed!

 

Today’s article sheds some light on how women tend to lack the growth mindset and how it can be holding them back.  Additionally, here is more info from HBR on what having a “growth mindset” really means.  I want to encourage you to take on new challenges and experiences and be okay with not getting it right or perfect!  There are so many opportunities hidden inside every failure.

 

“When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better, too.”  – Paulo Coelho
