Powerful Behaviors for Your Growth Mindset Success

In short, a growth mindset is a belief and the ability that allows us to control the way we perceive the world. This is such an essential mindset that helps to maintain the courage, determination and motivation to succeed in anything we put our minds to.

Many of us nowadays have become trapped in having a fixed mindset, a mindset where we believe that we have to control over what happens to us and, in short, is scared of failure and the disapproval of others.


However, this no way to live and shouldn’t be the case, especially since adopting a few key and powerful habits can change your life. Today, we’ll explore those habits.

Invoke a Positive Outlook on Life

How can you live positively if you’re not thinking positively? Granted, the world is full of misery. You’ve only got to look at your social networking feeds or watch the news broadcasts to realise that there’s a tonne of negative things happening in this world.

Even in your own world, if you try something new, such as a yoga class and its benefits are scientifically proved. Or try adopting a plant-based diet or something a little out of the ordinary, you might immediately feel judged. Of course, you will because people directlyrespond to change negatively. Break the mould and be your own person.

Sam Kelton, a psychology educator at Academized, states, “Imagine if your best friend wanted to try something new, but they were a bit uneasy or unsure of themselves. How would go about encouraging them and motivating them? Now try using the same tactics on yourself.”


Look Challenges Directly in the Eye

Nobody got anywhere in life simply by walking down a smooth road. That road will have lumps, bumps, potholes, rivers, streams, oceans, mud and anything you can imagine. Each side has immense drops where you’ll eternally fall, never being able to reach your dreams.

As with anything in life, there are also going to be challenges in everything that you do. It’s not about giving up at the first hurdle and thinking ‘oh well, I gave it a shot’, it’s about determination and driving yourself to get to the end of that road.

Choose Your Words Deliberately

With over 170,000 words in the English language, you can be sure that the majority of people in modern day society will only use less than 1% of them.

Of course, there’s context to consider but with so many words available, imagine if we all spoke fluently to each other. Imagine how much clearer and more concise our human interactions would be.

Whether you’re trying to cheer up a friend, tell a family member, you love them or breaking up with somebody because it’s just not working, choose your words precisely, and you’ll be able to open up so many more opportunities in your life in the form of relationships and chances to interact.

To hone your speaking skills, you can practice through writing. After all, nobody stands up on a stage to give a speech to thousands, if not millions, of people without first writing it down and perfecting what they’re trying to say.

Using online guides, such as State of WritingViawriting and Academadvisor you’ll be able to practice and improve your written and speaking skills to perfection.

Smile at Laugh

Just as we spoke about above, there’s a lot of pain and sadness in this world. However, it’s so important that you pay attention to the little details that are in front of you. These could include a bug of a leaf, the sun shining through your window, a really good cup of coffee or making eye contact with someone on the train.

Sara Lawson, a psychologist writer for Paper Fellows, states, “Whatever detail this is, be present and notice it. Smile at it and let it pass. Life will become so much more positive, helping you to nurture and develop a positive growth mindset.”

Rid Yourself of Validity

With the rise of things like social media, everything we do, whether it’s running a marathon, going on holiday, listening to a song or donating to charity, it’s all posted for the world to see, seeking out the approval of others in the form of likes, shares and comments.

But why do we seek this approval of others? Especially when the majority of them having nothing to do with our lives anyway. All they are, are followers. Instead, why not draw your attention on giving yourself credit and the validity of doing what makes you happy?

Of course, some forms of criticism are very helpful and can be very beneficial, but just make sure that you’re getting it from the right people that you trust, and they trust you.

People like to believe that they live in a fake reality where they’re imperfections are buried and that they’re happy and positive all the time. However, this state of mind can be crippling.
