Here is the reality: We all can be trained to do just about anything.
Too many of us have a fixed mindset — I can’t do it. We hear this all the time from people. These words, I can’t do it, are part of a fixed mindset. A person with a fixed mindset spends their time documenting their intelligence instead of developing it. It’s the same way with talent. They believe that talent alone creates success without effort. So, a fixed-mindset believer is a person who believes that their intelligence and talents are fixed. They have a certain amount, and that is that.
A growth mindset or a success mindset is much different. A person with a success mindset believes their talents and abilities can be developed through effort, good teaching, learning, and persistence. A fixed mindset will say, I can’t do it. A person with a success mindset will say, I can’t do it yet. A success mindset believes anything is possible.
All of us need help at times, but only a few of us want to be helped. That’s why the word of God teaches us that, All things are possible to him who believes (Mark 9:23b NKJV). A success mindset believes we can improve, get better, and do better if we are willing to learn and put forth effort. So, don’t limit yourselves; don’t buy into a fixed mindset.
Begin to believe and develop a success mindset. We really can learn anything and do anything, but it’s all based on what we believe.
Just a thought,
