What is Mindset?

Mindset can be defined as the range of attitudes, beliefs, values and expectations we hold about ourselves, the people around us and our environment.

It influences our perceptions, our decisions, how we live our lives and how we experience the world.

It is usually a by-product of our experiences in life, our upbringing and many other factors.

The good news is that our mindset is NOT static. It can change. And when it does, our brain also changes through new neural pathways, thanks to the phenomenon of neuroplasticity.

Dr. Carol Dweck, a pioneering researcher and TED Talk speaker, coined the term Growth-Fixed mindset.
