When I was a very young child, my family used to have game nights, and no matter what we were playing, I always wanted to win so I could tell myself I was better, worthier, or even just luckier than everyone else. For so long, losing meant the opposite. And this fear of failure continued throughout school and into my adulthood until I was able to adopt a learner’s mindset.
I wanted to do things my way, but I wasn’t getting the results I wanted. I craved mentorship, but I didn’t even really know what I needed help with. And that’s when I got curious; I learned about the difference between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset, and everything changed. If you feel like you’re made for more, you can do the same.
There are so many occasions where life throws us challenging circumstances. And while this looks different for all of us, I’m showing you how adopting a learner’s mindset will allow you to lead in a powerful way through any situation.
