64. How to Have a Growth vs. Fixed Mindset

Apr 4, 2022 | Podcast | 0 comments

The title of the episode 64, How to Have a Growth vs Fixed Mindset is in blue lettering over a white background next to a picture of Jen in a white tank top deadlifting a barbell to her hips.

As you probably already know, mindset is key. It can make or break an athlete’s mind, especially when you reflect on your own inherent abilities.

Today, I’m talking about how to have a growth mindset versus a fixed mindset. These thoughts I’m sharing with you are all derived from Carol Dweck’s book, Mindset, which I highly recommend you check out sometime if this is of interest to you. Dr. Dweck is a researcher at Stanford University.

Today, lucky for you, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on this book and boiling down a lot of the key concepts in an effort to truly empower you.
