What are the limitations of a fixed mindset? What are the benefits of a growth mindset? Carol Dweck explored this in her book Mindset, which referenced studies that prove a growth mindset works best. Best for what? For maintaining our attention on learning. 

The growth mindset is being incorporated into training programs, such as Trevor Ragan’s Train Ugly. Kris Hampton of Power Company Climbing sat down with Trevor for Podcast #64 where they explored this topic. 

The shift from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset is incredibly important, for athletes, for coaches, and ultimately for us all. It shifts our attention from ego identity to a focus on our efforts, welcoming stress as a learning opportunity. Listen to this podcast, read Carol’s book, and make the shift.
