Who doesn’t want to be successful in their career? As written in the post by Travis Bradberry on Forbes, your success doesn’t just depend on your degree, knowledge and level of intelligence. According to a study conducted by Carol Dweck, a psychologist at Stanford University, your success and achievements depend more on your mindset than your IQ.
According to Dweck’s findings, one’s attitude can be classified into one of two mindsets – fixed or growth. People with a fixed mindset understand very well who they are and how much they can handle. Their way of thinking makes it difficult to solve problems and overcome obstacles.
Contrary to the previous group, people with a growth mindset look at challenges more passionately and don’t stop when it’s too hard. They believe in themselves and know that anything can be achieved if they don’t stop trying.
This is the reason why people with a lower IQ and a growth mindset can surpass those with a high IQ and fixed mindset. It means that success depends on how you perceive challenges and deal with obstacles.
See below tips recommended by Bradberry that will make you more productive, motivated, and will bring you closer to your accomplishments:
To become successful, you must be confident and perceive every difficulty as a lesson from which you can learn. Failure is just another motivator that makes you try harder.
