FIXED MINDSET VS. GROWTH MINDSET
We’ve all heard that there are two types of people in this world, but the statement is usually followed by a punchline. According to former Harvard psychology professor Carol Dweck and a book she wrote on the subject, people really do fall into two groups: those with a fixed mindset and those with a growth mindset. Mindset is powerful. It can be limiting or expanding, which can impact a person’s entire perception of their pursuits and determine what they accomplish. This is particularly interesting when exploring these concepts in the context of business ownership.
If you own your own business or aspire to, here’s what you need to know about fixed mindset vs. growth mindset.
