How to Reframe from a Fixed Mindset

Do you indulge in a fixed mindset and consider suffering from it to be a universal condition?

Don't worry. I also used to think it was a normal thing!


A fixed mindset prevents you from evolving and growing, which is essential for taking advantage of great opportunities.

Understand the Cause So You Can Fight It

Usually, when you're confronted with something that you might consider to be beyond your capabilities and you already have a limiting belief in place, a fixed mindset typically emerges with negative expressions.

Avoid a Fixed Mindset Expressions

Fixed mindset expressions, such as telling yourself you can't do something or that you'll never be good at your job or get the promotion you deserve, keep you stationary continuously and permanently. Avoid these negative statements to start your journey toward a growth mindset. 

Growth Mindset vs. Fixed Mindset

Simply put, a growth mindset is a conviction that you can advance in something, despite how challenging it may seem at first. A fixed mindset, on the other hand, is the belief that you cannot be successful. 

What to Do... Reframe whenever you find yourself in a situation where you feel compelled to use Fixed Mindset Expression.

Negative should be replaced with Positive

I will never be good at this – I'll get the skills I need to excel at this.

I don’t have what it takes to get this kind of job – I'll subsequently develop the skills necessary to meet the requirements for and get a prestigious job like this.

This is too hard for me – This project/course is too hard, but I'll do my best to handle it and get through it.

The Benefit of Reframing a Fixed Mindset

By switching from a fixed to a growth mindset, you can think clearly, act wisely, and be totally proactive. If you look at expression number two, all the character had to do to become qualified for the desired job was to give himself time to mature and develop the necessary skills. Beginning today, start breaking any fixed mindset behaviours you may have.
