108 Growth Mindset Quotes

by Funmi

Obstacles and mistakes aren't a reflection of a permanent problem. They are opportunities for us to work on and take lessons learnt.

The important thing to do is to maintain a positive mindset and fight any negative self-talk that convinces you that you nothing good can come out from you.

This is where a Growth Mindset can benefit you. A growth mindset isn't in denial of the situation; however, it sees a way through, and it is focused on the end goal.
