- “I am terrible at maths/sudoku/learning languages/sports/cooking/etc…” - “No I can’t, I have never done it before.” These are classic examples of thinking along the lines of a fixed mindset. Are you really terrible at Sudoku or have you simply never put in enough effort to understand how it works? Do you really suck at sports or do you just prefer to watch a movie instead of playing a sport? Growth MindsetPeople with a growth mindset know that you are able to develop your skills and talents and that you are the one in charge of this. If someone is outperforming their peers in certain jobs, games, sports, then they have obviously put in the time and effort to master the skills needed to do so. This kind of person will give you a completely different answer when it comes to things they haven’t done yet. Are you good at Sudoku? “I mean I never really tried it, but I am good with numbers, so I think I could become good at it if I put in the effort.”
