  • The Benefits of Changing Your Mindset
    The Benefits of Changing Your Mindset

    March 24th 2016, we filled out another success wheel to witness our change in mindset over the timespan of a couple months. With changing my mindset, I have drastically changed my school grades in all of my courses, and with that have increased my overall confidence. Upon completing the success wheel a second time, the one observation that I have made is that it does not emphasize that success is closely related to ones mindset. The one characteristic that is not graded is the degree of ones mindset. In my personal opinion, I do not believe that mindset has a qualitative number; instead, it is you either have a fixed mindset or you have a growth mindset, of which I see as being tied into also being open minded. The wheel does provide some important indicators in terms of what one must address to improve their lives, with that, it does bring attention to one’s need for personal growth. If a person can recognize that there is a need for personal growth, there is more of an opportunity to embrace change and with that, develop a growth mindset.
