WHY HAVE A GROWTH MINDSET: 17 THINGS YOU CAN DO TO GET OUT OF OVERWHELM AND INTO GROWTH
Having a growth mindset is all the buzz. Grow more positive. Grow more successful. Grow as a person. Grow as a professional. Grow in your relationships…. grow, grow, grow, grow.
It is great advice because if you aren't growing you're dying.
Many people find the idea of growth overwhelming. Like, “I better carve out a few months of time so I can grow.” (Insert butt scratch here.)
Or if you are introverted like myself, you feel like you need to be alone and secluded for real growth to happen. And yes there is real envy that the caterpillar gets to do its major growth hidden away in a cocoon.
How can you cultivate a mindset of growth when all you feel like is a tired, overwhelmed mess who just wants to run away and magically be a better version of yourself instantly?
