Why Should You Keep A Growth Mindset

You see, if you want to succeed in life or business, you must continue to nurture the growth mindset.

As a leader, it is therefore essential to have a growth mindset. But first, what is a growth mindset?

In the simplest form, it is the belief that we can improve and develop by being dedicated and passionate.

This transformation is critical because developing a growth mindset helps us in achieving our long-term goals.

A leading scholar, Carol Dweck states that while you may no have it at the beginning, change is possible:

She declared; “Although people may differ in every way in their initial talents and attitudes, interests, or temperaments, everyone can change and grow [for the better ] through practical application and experience”

Now it’s time to evaluate yourself:

Take a moment and answer these questions: Do you believe that you were born with a fixed set of capabilities? Or do you believe that your skills can evolve and grow with experience as you learn new things?

If you said yes, but you still struggle to change, here are 5 tips to help you develop a growth mindset:


As a first step in developing a growth mindset, accept that you are flawed. Everyone is. And that imperfection is what makes us unique. Your focus should then be on becoming a better version of yourself daily, through deliberate actions to help you improve your thoughts, actions and behaviors.


Contemplate on your own purpose until everything becomes clear to you. And then pursue it. A clear goal helps you to regularly evaluate if you are achieving your targets as you pursue them daily.


Pretending to be someone makes you disrespect the real you. It makes you set aside the things that you can offer. So be authentic. Though, this may take some time but once you do, you’re one step closer to a growth mindset. Being yourself and not anyone else helps you to grow into the person you want to become.


Never mind the speed of how you work on things. Focus on the process no matter how long it takes you. Remember that no two people are alike. So don’t be discouraged if your pace seems slower. There are several reasons why people are at the current station in life…each story is different.


While the result is the final destination and its cherished, the journey itself is more rewarding. The value in the journey comes from learning the things that will help you on your next journey of growth and development. It is therefore pretty important to value the learning process as you build the growth mindset as you grow.

Now knowing this, how committed are you now to develop a growth mindset ?

In the meantime, keep changing lives.
