20: Are You Winning or Learning? Switching to a Growth Mindset


What does it mean to say you are either winning or learning? When we have challenges or setbacks, it’s easy to let our thoughts become very negative and judgmental about the situation. However, we don’t have to allow those thoughts. 

If we want to be our best selves, we should be working toward a growth mindset. In this episode, we chat about what that means, how you can recognize your current mindset, and how to intentionally choose your thoughts.  

In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • The difference between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset
  • How to recognize your current mindset
  • Shifting your thinking to a growth mindset
  • Questions to ask yourself to examine your thoughts
  • Different thought shift prompts to turn a fixed mindset to a growth mindset
  • What the judgers path and learners paths are
  • A personal example of how I used a growth mindset at work

I hope after listening to this episode, you are better equipped with questions to ask yourself to shift your perspective about a circumstance in your life.  Sometimes we’re on top of the world.  We’re crushing it and we’re moving forward with our goals, while other times setbacks happen and everything seems to be going wrong.  

Sometimes it feels easier to sit there and be angry or to blame ourselves or others about a situation.  We must remember to ask ourselves “what is the lesson I need to learn here so that as I move forward, I’ll know better?”  

Because remember…when you know better, you’ll do better.  Some of the bad moments can be some of your biggest learning lessons!
