Can we develop our mindset?
To go from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset, one needs to possess the willingness, awareness, and great patience every step of the way.

• Replace the word “failing” with the term “learning.”
• Develop passion
• Make learning a daily habit
• Learn and accept constructive criticism
• Reward yourself
