Mindset is probably the most important element in our formula. The way you perceive the world and attach meaning to everything that happens makes all the difference in your life and in what you will accomplish. Let’s look at alle the elements that are of importance.
Growth vs Fixed Mindset
According to psychologist Carol Dewck people either have a growth mindset OR a fixed mindset.
In a fixed mindset you believe you are who you are, and there is not much you can do about it. Fixed People say: I can’t do this (ever).
In a growth mindset you believe you can allways keep growing and learning. Growth People say: I can’t do this yet.
Everything is Figureoutable
Chief Wow Officers believe that everything is figureoutable (brilliant book bij Marie Forleo). It doesn’t matter if you don’t know how to do something yet, you are able to figure it out. This belief prevent us from quitting to soon, because we don’t know how, or we don’t oversee the steps.
Chief Wow Officers believe that failure is just an essential step on the road to wow. When a child learns to walk, she falls a thousand times and she uses the falling to improve.
When an adult falls, he says: this is probably not for me. Let’s quit.
