Researches show that there are two types of mindsets- fixed mindset and growth mindset. Fixed mindset is a type of thinking that is based on the belief that our personality, character traits, talents, abilities and intellect are completely fixed. We are either clever or stupid. We are either talented in something (art, music, sports, mathematics, logic, etc.) or not. In the world there is a certain number of talented people, with whom others admire from the outside.

He’s too clumsy “or” She has an easy hand-everything she touches, blooms, “or” She cannot fry an egg without setting a fire, “and so on.
Growth mindset is a completely opposite type of thinking, which reflects our belief that a person can do everything. Through perseverance and effort, any one of us can become what we want.

There are only very hardworking people who decided to raise their abilities to a higher level.
