I'm sure you have heard about these mindsets before, pretty important things to figure out to see how you are driven through some self-awareness practices. Here's a quick explanation of the two types of mindsets:
A fixed mindset promotes results-driven thinking. With a fixed mindset, you focus on the outcome of a task, not its process. If you attempt a task and the outcome is unsuccessful, you assume the outcome will never be successful. Worse, the deeper you settle into this mindset, the more likely you are to dismiss something as unachievable before you’ve even tried it.
A growth mindset focuses on a task’s process rather than its outcome. As a result, those with growth mindsets see difficulties as positive challenges rather than roadblocks to success and reframe mistakes as learning opportunities. With a growth mindset, you’re more likely to embrace risk. Fear of failure doesn’t come into the equation because, in the growth mindset way of thinking, there’s nothing to fear about failure. Good thing there is nothing fixed about a fixed mindset, and there's no such thing as too late to cultivate a growth mindset.

WTF is mindset?! The definition of mindset is “the accumulation of your attitudes and beliefs”. Your attitudes and beliefs influence everything you think and feel, how you perceive the world, but most importantly - your behaviour and what you do. For example, if you believe you'll never learn hardflips, maybe you won't try. If you think you’re not good enough to skate the local park, maybe you won’t go and you won't progress. Two important types of mindset we’re gunna talk about are: Fixed mindset & Growth mindset..."
