Focus on building an ability, rather than boasting on ‘having one’ #GrowthMentality (3/9)

List item

The first step towards building a growth mindset is to keep one’s focus on acquiring different abilities (like playing a musical instrument, or acquiring a skill like programming), rather than feeling pride on having an ability inherently (like, boasting on being a ‘natural born swimmer’).

The fact of matter is we take some activities like fish to water, while we struggle at some, because sub-consciously we believe that we have been born with those traits and those which we do not have, it is almost impossible to acquire them.
