5 Ways to Develop a Growth Mindset


“Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can” – Arthur Ashe

Mindset is a critical component in how you live your life, not just how you work at your job or design your career. Your mindset – frame of mind; collection of thoughts and beliefs that shape your thinking – determines how you navigate the world. Mindset separates the successful from those who sit idle on the sidelines.

My clients who are most successful at implementing the strategies I provide and designing the careers of their dreams have a growth mindset versus a fixed mindset. A growth mindset is more than optimism and a strong will. A person with a growth mindset believes that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work. A person with a growth mindset believes that they can change their career trajectory with focus and hard work, accepts challenges as opportunities to grow, values constructive criticism, views failure as a stepping stone, and doesn’t give up when there is a setback (because there will be setbacks). Although fear or self-doubt may creep in from time to time, my most successful clients believe in themselves and believe in their dreams. And they also believe that I believe in them as well.

5 Ways to Develop a Growth Mindset:

  1. Let your curiosity lead the way
  2. Spend time in self-reflection
  3. Leave your comfort zone
  4. Be persistent and intentional
  5. Get the support that you need
