What is a Growth Mindset?

A growth mindset is one which focuses on expansion at all times as opposed to trying to preserve the existing situation.

While finances are the easiest and most obvious example to give, the concepts of both fixed and growth mindsets apply to relationships, health, creativity, spirituality, and personal happiness.

Typically, people can apply a growth mindset to one area of their lives but fail to carry over this into others. But if you grow a company, you can grow a relationship or even spiritual success.

You just have to take the same principals into a different field. The details will differ, but the foundational ideas for improvement will remain the same.

People with a growth mindset are not focused on the past or even with current difficulties. It’s not even that they look for ways to solve problems as such; they are focused on creative ways to grow that can completely bypass existing issues.

It comes down to a question of focusing on lack or focusing on growth. This does not mean that you ignore things that need to get done.

You will still attend to specific obligations. But they are less of a weight when your focus is on where you are going instead of where you happen to be.
