Are you familiar with a growth mindset? A growth mindset is a belief that your abilities can develop over time. It’s a self-perception or “self-theory” you have about yourself, such as believing one may be smart even if they aren’t good at something else in life. This type of thinking has been shown to affect learning achievement and skill acquisition positively because it motivates people not just to accept what their current level might be but instead to work towards improving themselves no matter where they’re starting from. This set of FREE growth mindset coloring pages can help you get started with this type of positive thinking today!
Important Things about a Growth Mindset
In a fixed mindset, you believe that your basic qualities cannot be changed. If you have a fixed mindset, then you typically shy away from challenges and anything that may expose any weaknesses as they will affect the way people think about you. For example, if someone were to tell you that you are not very good at knitting – or worse yet, bad at it – you would avoid knitting. The fixed mindset holds that if they can’t be good at everything then they might as well not even try.
An individual with a growth mindset believes they have the ability to grow and develop their abilities through hard work and perseverance. A needle in a haystack? Some extra effort makes all the difference. A growth mindset believes that even if you are not good at something, with some effort and practice you will improve. If someone tells you that they don’t like knitting – then what? You might say: “I think it’s fun and I am going to keep trying until I get better”. Someone developing a strong growth mindset may not be the best when it comes to knitting at first but if they keep practicing, in due time, this person will become a pretty good knitter.
What Makes Successful People Develop Their Skills?
What makes a student or successful people want to learn and develop their skills? Certainly, the answer varies from individual to individual. That being said, having a growth mindset can make all the difference. In school, students with a growth mindset are more likely to work harder and persevere when faced with a difficult challenge – you know the saying: “never give up”. Children with a greater belief that they can grow their abilities or intelligence will also tend to ask more questions, seek help from others and embrace learning as an opportunity to grow and develop.
In school, teachers have the ability to instill a growth mindset in their students by teaching them that they can learn from their mistakes. They should be encouraging students to ask questions and not just shut down when things get tough or difficult because that is how you discover new knowledge! In addition, praise children for effort and improvement and not so much for intelligence and ability. Teachers can also create an environment where students feel free to take risks because that is how they grow as learners.
Whether you start developing a growth mindset as a student or an adult, a growth mindset is a powerful thing!
