Noted psychologist Carol Dweck says there are actually two categories of mindset.
1. A fixed mindset that defines your abilities. Believing you are born with all the abilities you will need in life. Those with a fixed mindset can feel like failures. They think something is lacking within themselves.
2. People with a growth mindset feel that they can learn anything. And gain any ability if they put in enough effort. These people don’t let setbacks stop them. The pace of their growth depends upon the speed at which they grow. Shedding habits, beliefs and attitudes which do not serve them and into ones which do.
Confronted challenging ideas and trying to change your lifetime habits, can be hard. You may feel attacked. Humility helps own our flaws and weaknesses.
