“Once your mindset changes, everything on the outside will change along with it.”
― Steve Maraboli. With every change comes a different mindset. Throughout my life I have established that how someone discerns something will define a situation. To emphasize, behind all of my achievements, such as martial arts championships, track medals, even well graded tests, was an even stronger mindset. One must incorporate the ability to give something…
Duckworth asserts that positive, open mindsets lead to success over negative, fixed mindsets. Optimistic thinking is described to induce higher amounts of tenacity and to pursue new endeavors to strengthen oneself further. This self-strengthening is what leads one to success. Pessimistic thinking precipitates both avoidance and abandonment of challenges, which weakens oneself and puts a hiatus on one’s progress.

However, people with the growth mindset challenge themselves, take charge of their learning and review mistakes until they understand them. According to Carol Dweck, these two different mindsets lead to…
Growth mindset is the belief that you can improve upon your abilities through practice and effort, as opposed to a fixed mindset in which one believes their abilities are unchangeable (Dweck, 2006).

In fact, I’ve even searched, “What does mindset mean?” on Google, to no avail. I used to constantly ask myself that very question, in hopes of knowing someday.
This past summer, I began workouts with the football team. We lifted weights and each player had the goal of impressing the coaches early on. I’m a rather…
