If your way of thinking is not big, your life will stay small. That’s exactly the difference between a growth mindset and a fixed mindset. The question is — which one will you choose?

Listen, the way you think has a massive impact on your goals, finances, life, business — everything. And when you think too small, that’s when problems come.

There’s all this talk about growth vs fixed mindset, and your personal and professional results depend on which one you choose to go for.

Let me break it down for you.

What is growth mindset?

Stanford professor and lead researcher on the topic Carol Dweck defines the concept like this:

“In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work— brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment.”

— Carol Dweck

In other words, people with a growth mindset set themselves up for success through forward thinking.

On the other hand, those who think in a “fixed” way refuse change and improvement.

Here are some great examples that show the exact difference between the two mindsets:

Growth mindsetFixed mindset
Big thinkingSmall thinking
Feedback is a learning opportunityFeedback is criticism
Failures are temporary challengesFailures are definitive
Others’ success is inspiringOthers’ success is threatening
Continuous improvementComplacency

Guess which one will help you dominate?

Success is a mindset

You’re the only person responsible for the way you think. It’s a choice, and it’ll be one of the most important ones you ever take.

So, choose to make your mindset one of growth. Surround yourself with exceptional thinkers and doers. You have the immediate chance to do this at 10X Growth Conference 2025.

Be Great,
