"Unlocking Your Potential: The Power of a Growth Mindset"


A good place to start with growth and fixed mindset is to think about how you respond to success and failure. I’m going to keep this one short and sweet for you…


What is success for someone with a growth mindset?

Those with the growth mindset find success in doing their best, in learning and improving.


What is failure for someone with a growth mindset?

Those with the growth mindset find setbacks motivating. They’re informative. They’re a wake-up call.


Influencing success when you have a growth mindset

People with the growth mindset in sport take charge of the processes that help 'work towards' success – and then maintain that success.


Remember...

The best athletes didn’t start out as 'amazing'. They had to put in the effort to progress and develop.


  • Sometimes being viewed and labelled as ‘talented’ can be really tough for young people. These athletes may stay in a fixed mindset and not cope well with adversity.


  • “Character” is an important concept in the sport world, and it comes out of a growth mindset. Think about times when you’ve needed to reach deep down inside in difficult sport situations.
