Adopting a growth mindset can lead to greater perseverance, resilience, and ultimately, success. This worksheet will help you develop and strengthen your growth mindset, leading to more positive outcomes in your business.

Reflection: Think of a time you mastered a new skill. How did it make you feel? What steps did you take to achieve that?

“In the fixed mindset, everything is about the outcome. If you fail—or if you’re not the best—it’s all been wasted. The growth mindset allows people to value what they’re doing regardless of the outcome . They’re tackling problems, charting new courses, working on important issues. Maybe they haven’t found the cure for cancer, but the search was deeply meaningful.” ― Carol S. Dweck, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success
