Quotes on People with Growth Mindset

“Gifted people are not actually born gifted themselves, but they are born with the extreme love of learning and challenge. They are people with heightened abilities and obsessive interests, and through relentless pursuit of interests, become amazingly accomplished.”

“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.”

“Many national championships gave me pleasure, whether we win or lose, simply because we prepared fully and played near our highest level of ability.”

“Tiger Woods and Mia Hamm love to win, but what counted most for them is the effort they made even when they didn’t win. They could be proud of that. ”

“Failure is not a setback, but motivation instead. They are informative. They are a wake-up call.”

“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.”

“A company who worshiped talent will force employees to look and act extraordinarily talented. They will not admit and correct their deficiencies. “A company that cannot self-correct cannot thrive.”

      Javed, you have said it well. God has bestowed us with such amazing brain that we just need the growth mindset to bring out its full potential.

      Interesting read Ingenira. The way God has bestowed this incredible organ and placed on top of the body suggests that it should be given top priority for using and using it time and again. The brain develops as it is used. The sustainable human development rest on the 'growth mind set' and the society and the nation which are characterised by such people are bound to get there due growth. Whereas the fixed mindset fall very short of the realities thus it serves as a liability. This is what we understand with your write. Thanks for the share.
