Quotes on People with Growth Mindset

“Successful people take charge of the process to reach their goals. They find all the clues to all the different ways to create learning. “

“The joy of athletics has never resided just in wining. Happiness is derived from the process as much as the results. They don’t mind losing as long as they see improvement or they feel they have done as well as they can possibly could.”

“Worrying about being nobody is not the mindset that motivates and sustains champions. ”

“Athletes with growth mindset find success in learning and improving, not just winning. The more you can do this, the more rewarding sports will be for you – and for those who play them with you.”

Quotes on People with Fixed Mindset

“When you are given a positive label, you are afraid of losing it.”

“When you are attacked with a negative label, you are afraid of deserving it.”

“Stereotypes fill people’s mind with distracting thoughts, with secret worries about confirming the stereotype.”

“People with fixed mindset believe that effort is not a cause of pride. It is something that casts doubt on your talent.”

“For people with fixed mindset, setbacks label them.”

“Athletes with fixed mindset only want to validate their talent. It’s the somebody-nobody syndrome. If I win, I’ll be somebody; if I lose, I’ll be nobody.”
