Patrick Horsman: Fixed vs. Growth Mindset

Our thoughts are powerful. The way you think about yourself and the things you feel about yourself have the power to influence your personal and professional life. Over time, those thoughts you constantly tell yourself will develop into a mindset that dictates your entire personality. Carol Dweck, a Stanford University psychologist, tells us that a mindset is a simple idea that profoundly affects a person’s life. She says that this view you adopt for yourself will determine how you live your life, see the world, and make decisions. Patrick Horsman advises aspiring entrepreneurs that mindset is no small thing - your perceptions about your abilities will inevitably shape the way you operate.
