Growth Mindset Assembly – 5 Items to new Thinking

The human brain is a crazy tool that we as a race under-utilize. Time and time again, we set limitations on ourselves. Telling ourselves something over and over, this will eventually stick and we will believe it. When you let others influence the way you think, you are failing the brain. Your mind should be its own, and no one else.

Impossible is a relative term. My impossible may be 180 degrees different from yours. A growth mindset is something that I strongly believe everyone should research and adopt.

Complacency is something that “us” (meaning humans) as a culture consider “part of life”. As a person we should never become complacent, ever. To be the best should always pass through your brain – daily, hourly, by the minute.

We will be diving into an entire series of articles dedicated to those ideas and successes by humans later on. But for now – this list of the Growth Mindset Assembly will get you in the right direction.


Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dweck

Carol Dweck has unlocked the world of a growth mindset in the holy grail of “mindset”. Dweck who has a Ph. D from the University of Stanford has compiled years – decades of research into a well-thought-out book. Dweck has opened up a realm not known to most. The Growth Mindset – people who believe that all abilities and skills are developed. As opposed to a Fixed Mindset – which is people who believe that their abilities have been in fact fixed.

Mindset shows how the best people on the planet use a Growth Mindset. Ranging from Olympic athletes, hall of fame coaches, extraordinary parents, teachers – the list goes on. The newest edition is out now where Dweck dives into applying the Growth Mindset to not just individuals but cultures as well.

    This is a great article, positive, inspiring and motivating! I’m definitely going to order Tim Ferris’ 4-hour work week, as I’ve heard good things about it. I wasn’t quite so sure about the article though – I can see the benefit of encouraging people to stretch their reading limits, but do you think by following the advice in the article you also miss out on some of the enjoyment of reading?

    • Nic

      Thanks for the read. The 4-hour Work Week is a great read. And as far as enjoyment of reading goes, I really do think that depends on the reader. I know for me personally, self help and gaining knowledge at an exponential rate, is what I find to be “enjoying”. But like I said, this is different for everyone. And I can see where you are coming from completely.

      Thanks for stopping by,
