You might have heard of the Growth vs Fixed Mindset concept by Dr Carol Dweck.
Everyone wants to aim for the #growthmindset
It's a fantastic concept, and very powerful. It teaches us about the power of a small three-letter word: yet.
Eg. I am not an entrepreneur... Yet.
I am not great at marketing... Yet.
I am not at my target weight.. Yet.
It's all about opening yourself up to possibilities of growth.
However, there is one small caveat to this concept. One little flaw that often goes unnoticed.
As inspirational as it is, not everything in life is possible.
Actually, it ignores the stacks of unfair advantages (and luck) some people already have in life.
Rather than ignore both schools of thought, we’d like to offer a third way of thinking.
We call it a Reality-Growth Mindset. A reality-growth mindset is the ability to accept the hard limits of the way things are (the physical laws of the universe) and believe that anything is possible (the metaphysical way of looking at the universe).
We dive deeper into the reality-growth mindset in our book The Unfair Advantage.
Keep your eyes on the stars and feet on the ground.
