Tips for developing a personal growth mindset

The following tips will help you to adopt a personal growth mindset:

  Allow yourself to dream

Every new adventure, or achievement, begins with a dream. Allow yourself to dream. Do not place limitations on these dreams. Your dreams are part of your creative self. If you embrace them, you will identify new opportunities for growth. When you identify these opportunities, try them out.

 Understand that you will never do your best

No matter what you do, there will always be opportunity for improvement. There are always opportunities to learn from your experiences and use the feedback to improve. Therefore, you can never do your best but you can do the best that you can at any given moment, with the knowledge and skill you possess at that time. When you understand and accept this, you realise that the judgements of others are irrelevant. You can take comfort that you did the best you could at that time and resolve to learn from the experience so that you may do better next time.

 Focus on the experience rather than the end result

There may be activities which you have avoided because you don’t feel that you would be any good at them.  Ask yourself ‘Does it really matter if I am not very good at it?’  The answer is ‘No’. You don’t need to be good at it, if you enjoy it. You are not looking for a record deal, a museum exhibition or a professional sports contract. You are simply looking for fun. If you focus on the experience rather than the end result, you will have a lot more fun and you might, unwittingly, find something which you are actually good at.

 Try one new thing everyday

If you commit to trying one new thing every day, you will have tried 365 new things in one year. The chances of finding something you like, enjoy or are good at are much higher. More importantly, you will quickly develop a personal growth mindset where you see challenges rather than problems, and you are unafraid to try new things.

Effective goal setting lies at the heart of a personal growth mindset. You can learn to set effective goals with the Ultimate Guide to Goal Setting.
