What type of mindset do you have? As a matter of fact, The story is about “The Two Basic Mindsets That Shape Our Lives,” and the author (Carol Dweck) research on mindset goes into great detail. Dweck research is good because it could change somebody life if they determine what type of mindset they have.
Whether growth or fixed, mindsets affect many aspects of our everyday life. A student may have a fixed mindset in, say, math and have a growth mindset when it comes to soccer. Mindsets, a concept developed by Carol Dweck, are either growth or fixed. People with a fixed mindset view certain aspects, be it intelligence or talent, as “fixed” and unchanging, while people with a growth mindset see the same aspects as a chance to grow and improve. Until fifth grade I was the former. Fifth grade was the start of many things: a new school, new friends, and a new mindset. Fifth grade pre-algebra was the first class I had ever struggled in. My lack of a growth mindset kept me from asking questions, learning from my failures, and accepting criticism.
In today’s session, group members learned about how thoughts and emotions contribute to behavior, and how to observe, analyze and responses to those thoughts and emotions in different ways. The common behavior traits that related to substance use were discussed, as well.
Beilock said, “In other words, a student’s perspective can determine success or failure.” Beilock also said,” How we interpret these reactions predict whether we will choke or thrive.” Right now you're choking on these math classes that can help you thrive. So excuse those bad habits you have. Since your actions are negative, there must be some changes in your confidence and mindset beliefs.
Attitude impacts everything. The book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dweck explores two mindsets that impact achievement, development, and to some degree, success. One of these ways of thinking is the fixed mindset, where abilities are set and cannot be improved upon by much. In a fixed mindset, each situation is a chance for success or failure, it is not seen as a chance for improvement. Those with a fixed mindset do not have an accurate gauge of their abilities, as failures or achievements are not cataloged as room for improvement or a possibility to learn. The other mindset, that of a growth mindset, is characterized by the belief that there is room for improvement, and that both successes and failures should be used as
When students encounter challenging tasks or experience failure, they make different attributions about the causes. They may focus on their intelligence or level of effort. How our beliefs about intelligence impact our goals and performance is the focus of Carol Dweck’s work (Blackwell, Trzesniewski, & Dweck, 2007; Dweck, 1986; Dweck, 1999; Hong, Chui, Dweck, Lin, & Wan, 1999). Dweck’s implicit theories of intelligence involves two mindsets: the fixed view and the malleable view. People who have a fixed mindset often believe that their own intelligence is fixed entity that cannot be changed; and those who have a malleable mindset believe that their intelligence can be changed and increased (Dweck, 1999). These two mindsets have profound influences on students’ responses to challenging situations, potentially leading to the extremes of withdrawal of effort and learned helplessness (fixed mindset) or persistent effort and a mastery orientation (malleable mindset). Fortunately, mindsets can be altered and used as interventions to
In both of these mindsets, they both have some advantages and some disadvantages. The reason why there are some advantages and some disadvantages I think depend on your personality and what type of person you are. A fixed mindset is an intelligence static that leads to a desire to look smart and have a tendency to, which on the other hand a growth mindset is intelligence and can be developed and leads to a desire to learn and have tendency to learn in different ways.
When you fully commit to changing your perspective by thinking with a constant positive mindset, the possibilities become endless because now you will attract the target of your focus. People always have a tendency to focus on the negative especially with their ex because it is sticks in the mind. When your ex says something extremely disrespectful and hurtful, instead of stooping down to his level, simply respond with the most loving and calm voice “I understand that you are angry right now, but let’s work through this.” This will throw him for a loop because he wants you to become emotional like him and it is not working. Positivity is contagious no matter
A mindset is like the story “The Road Not Taken,” by Robert Frost. I can have a fixed mindset and not challenge myself to overcome failures, or I can strive to overcome those challenges and push myself with a growth mindset. Ultamitly our mindset and choices are what get us into that long waited for dream collage. Just like my head coach always says, “ footballs the best metaphor to life,” In football the goal of the reckless game is to drive down to the goal line and score. Seems pretty simple, but add that with eleven guys running full speed at you with the mindset of laying you out. Football is a very demanding sport and things can go wrong at any giving moment. This brings me to my freshman year at trying to start at wide receiver for
After learning about the “power of yet” and the difference between a growth and fixed mindset, I came to the conclusion that I have a fixed mindset. One example from, “Carol Dweck: The power of believing you can improve,” asks the questions, “Are we raising kids who are obsessed with getting A’s? Are we raising kids that don’t know how to dream big dreams?” In relation to the quote, when I was in seventh grade I failed a pre algebra test. When I saw my grade I was too ashamed to tell my parents, so instead I hid the fact that I failed from my parents. I was disappointed in myself and felt dumb. This proves that I have a fixed mindset because I was so used to being able to get A’s and being praised for being successful, I could not possibly
Everybody has their own beliefs in life but some people would like to change like their mindset. Some people have a growth and a fixed mindset. The people who have a fixed mindset sometimes would like to change it. You would have to do the following steps: use the best information only, find a role model and model what they do, look at your belief system, set mindset goals, find your voice, and finally protect your mindset. When you find great information that is in your field focus on that. Make sure you find some who you can look up to to lead you on the right path, and they can also help you turn your belief system around. Another thing you can do is set goals for yourself, and when you’re setting goals you can find your voice is which you
The most influential part of the Mindset presentation was the statement about how accepting constructive criticism helps us to learn. During the presentation, it was stated that we should not reject feedback from our teachers or peers. This is a very important part of the learning process. Our classmates have different opinions, and are able to see the mistakes that we may have missed. They can also introduce new points of view that will boost the quality of our assignments. We should also accept feedback from our teachers. They have a strong knowledge of the subject, and can help us to improve each and every time we turn an assignment in. If we accept constructive criticism, we will be able to improve our learning abilities.
I think that I will face some of the same obstacles as my peers, but I think I will handle situations differently from them. For instance, most of my peers go out to parties and buy expensive stuff, but when it comes time for them to pay their car note they don't have the money because they chose to buy expensive things that they didn't need. I on the other hand believe in saving my money, I value my money.I am what you call a frugal person. So mentally some of my peers have a mindset of being a teenager still, instead of having a mindset of an adult with kids of their own. I am a more responsible and reliable person than MOST of my peers.
Throughout our discussions in this class so far there has been a great deal of conversation about what makes “mind” and “context” related. Overall, one of the greatest and most relevant conversations that we have had in class relating this topic is that each of the concepts are related and dependent on the other. The mind, which consists of the person, interactions, and experiences, gets all of its qualities from the context that it is in. The context is the environment and the people around that mind. Furthermore, the context is created by the minds of individuals. These two concepts are incredibly and undoubtedly intertwined that it drives the continued discussion which, in turn, has lead to the creation of multiple books on the same topic.
To be far sighted, thinking about long-term results can lead to having a mindset of success. You have to look at your actions and behavior from different aspects. Then, you can be aware that the sacrifices you have to do will all be worth it.
