M I N D S E T - Playing It Safe Vs. Taking A Risk
Mindset involves the way we interpret the events we experience in our lives. It is determined partly by how we track our life events and partly by how we feel about what has happened to us. In general terms, people can have a “growth mindset” or a “fixed mindset”.
Having a growth mindset means that you meet any challenge in life with a desire to learn and improve yourself as a result of the experience.

People with fixed mindsets are those that believe that abilities are carved in stone, they see challenges as risky – they could fail, and their basic abilities might be called into question. When they hit obstacles, setbacks, or criticism, this is just more proof that they don’t have the required abilities.
If this is you, you’ll tell yourself that you’re safer where you are, that this is how you’re accepted by society, but in reality, you’re just scared and incapable of reacting, believing in yourself and making the impossible happen.
✨There’s only one type of person that never fails, the type of person who never takes RISKS. We shouldn’t think about where the boundaries are, but rather how to overcome them.✨
By practicing thinking positively we can nurture and develop our “GROWTH MINDSET”.

better quality of life
