If there’s someone you love, tell them.

You have absolutely no time to waste.

Begin a life of self-discovery TODAY and watch your life ascend into bliss and happiness.

100 Positive Growth Mindset Quotes – Inspirational!

100 Positive Growth Mindset Quotes – Inspirational!

Looking for positive growth mindset quotes? Want encouragement to continue to learn and improve?

This blog post will help you out. We have 100 of the best quotes about developing a growth mindset.

But before we dig into these quotes, let’s make sure we are all on the same page and understand the difference between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset?

Researcher Carol S. Dweck led a study thirty years ago to discover the underlying beliefs we tend to have about intelligence and learning.

Through this study, Dr. Dweck found out that there are individuals who have the understanding that we can develop our intelligence and abilities, that is, we can grow.

The individuals who possess this understanding were observed to bounce back better from failure, and Dr. Dweck described the attitude they possessed as “growth mindset”.

She also used the term “fixed mindset” to describe those who were devastated even with minor setbacks.

 

 

What is growth mindset?

Carol Dweck, a professor at Stanford University coined the theory of growth mindset.

This theory categorises human learning and intelligence patterns into two categories – fixed mindset and growth mindset.

Fixed mindset is when individuals consider that their abilities and talents are constrained to a fixed set.

On the other hand, when individuals believe that they can improve their abilities, intelligence and talents through their efforts, it is termed as growth mindset.

Theologians and teachers from ancient times have expounded on the inherent ability of the mind to grow and become smarter.

But it was Prof. Dweck who first developed a structured theory on the characteristics of growth mindsets.

You can watch a great TED talk with Carol Dweck on growth mindset here.

 

 

Fixed mindset vs growth mindset

According to Carol Dweck’s Mindset Theory, we all fall somewhere along a spectrum when it comes to our implicit beliefs. At one end, it’s possible to have a fixed mindset or an entity theory:

“A fixed mindset is when people believe their basic qualities, their intelligence, their talents, their abilities, are just fixed traits. They have a certain amount, and that’s that.”

If your implicit beliefs fall at the other end of the spectrum, you have a growth mindset – incremental theory:

“(You) believe that even basic talents and abilities can be developed over time through experience, mentorship, and so on…and these are the people who go for it. (Dweck, 2012)”

100-Positive-Growth-Mindset-Quotes

A fixed mindset can often be associated with negative feelings when individuals encounter a setback.

If we fail to meet goals (say an A+ in a test or a promotion at work), we may feel inadequate – that’s all we’re supposedly capable of after all, innately.

Having a growth mindset, on the other hand, means we view our failures as “development points” and can work on them to succeed.

Perhaps for readily apparent reasons, Mindset Theory often gets applied in learning.

 

 

100 Positive Growth Mindset Quotes – Inspirational!

Read through the 100 growth mindset quotes below and, by the time you’re finished, you’ll feel like you’re ready to take on the world and that nothing can stop you.

“A man’s mind, stretched by new ideas, may never return to its original dimensions.”
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

“Why waste time proving over and over how great you are, when you could be getting better? Why hide deficiencies instead of overcoming them?
Why look for friends or partners who will just shore up your self-esteem instead of ones who will also challenge you to grow? And why seek out the tried and true, instead of experiences that will stretch you?
The passion for stretching yourself and sticking to it, even (or especially) when it’s not going well, is the hallmark of the growth mindset. This is the mindset that allows people to thrive during some of the most challenging times in their lives.”
Carol Dweck
