A Growth Mindset

To get ahead, you can’t keep doing the same things you’ve always done. You have to adapt in order to grow. Here’s how to develop a growth mindset (from the Very Well Mind website):

Believe your efforts matter. Take a look at your job and career. Look at how you help people. If you understand that your work makes a difference, you’ll be motivated to stick with it and do more.

Keep learning new skills. Look for training to expand your job skills, but also look outside the narrow scope of your occupation to pick up life skills. Take a painting class, volunteer at an animal shelter, or learn a new sport—anything that will get you out of your rut.

Learn from your failures. Everyone makes mistakes. The only shame is repeating them because you didn’t find out why they happened. Investigate the causes of your failures to ensure you don’t make them again.
