A growth mindset is a belief that one’s abilities can be developed as a result of hard work and practice. This is different from the commonly held fixed mindset, also known as the “entity theory”, which is a belief that one’s personal qualities are unchanging.

A growth mindset may allow an individual to learn better from setbacks, achieve higher levels of self-esteem, and persevere in the face of adversity. A growth mindset also acknowledges the potential for developing oneself and one’s abilities.

If you want to develop your self-discipline and personal power then read on to discover my 10 favorite growth mindset mantras:

  1. “I may not have control over everything, but I can control how I react.”

A fixed mindset believes that they are not responsible for the outcome of a situation or event and therefore cannot change it. In a sense, they believe they do not have the power to help them achieve their goal. A growth mindset, on the other hand, believes that they can control their reactions to certain events and therefore can change their present situation.

  1. “I can choose my attitude.”

In a fixed mindset, your abilities are unchangeable and therefore, no matter how hard you work, you’ll never change the way things are. A growth mindset on the other hand understands that they can work hard and improve upon themselves. They know that if they put in enough time and effort, they’ll eventually achieve their goal

  1. “I will not break apart just because it’s hard. I will prove myself to be able to overcome challenges.”

A fixed mindset can fall apart at the first sign of adversity – they believe that they cannot improve themselves because their quality is fixed and unchangeable. A growth mindset however can prove that they have the ability to stick with something long enough to achieve their goals – no matter how difficult it may seem, they believe that it’s possible for them to change their current situation

  1. “I know I can be a winner. I will use what I know, believe and feel to make myself win.”

A fixed mindset believes that they are not responsible for how they perform in a certain area or event; this is why they don’t feel like they have control over the situation. A growth mindset on the other hand understands that their success is dependent on what they put into something – if you put in more time and effort, you’ll get better results.

  1. “I will never give up. I will try again and again if I fail until I succeed.”

A fixed mindset sees failure as the end of a journey – they believe that since they failed at something, it’s impossible for them to achieve it. A growth mindset, however, understands that if you don’t give up, you’ll eventually get there. Giving up is not an option for them – no matter how hard it gets, they always try again and again until they achieve their goal.

  1. “My past successes are the result of my actions. My failures are the result of my actions as well.”

A fixed mindset believes that their successes are the result of some innate quality that they were born with – something they cannot change. A growth mindset on the other hand understands that their successes are the result of their actions and thus, they can replicate those actions to get better results in the future. Understandably, a growth-mindset is more likely to achieve higher levels of success.

  1. “I will step up my game because I’m worth it. It’s time to start giving everything I’ve got.”

A fixed mindset believes they can’t change the outcome of the situation; therefore, they don’t apply themselves. They feel like they’re not worth anything and thus, don’t push themselves to achieve higher levels of success. A growth mindset however understands that if you put in more effort, you’ll get better results. They also understand that if they put in more work and effort, their lives will improve exponentially.

  1. “I will aim higher. I will not settle for second best. I will be the best.”

A fixed mindset believes that in order to be happy, they must achieve a certain goal – once they reach this goal however, their happiness levels will settle down again. A growth mindset, on the other hand, understands that if you set bigger, higher goals for yourself and take more risks, you’ll always be growing and achieving things you never thought were possible.

  1. “I don’t need anyone’s permission to do what I want in life. I know I am responsible for myself.”

A fixed mindset believes that they’re not responsible for their actions and as a result, have to wait for someone else to give them permission before they can take the next step in a certain area or event. A growth mindset, on the other hand understands that they are responsible for everything and thus, have the power of choice – they don’t wait around for someone else to do it because if you don’t do it, you can’t improve your ability.

  1. “I will use what I know, believe and feel to make myself win.”

A fixed mindset believes that they’re not responsible for their actions – they have no control over what happens to them. A growth mindset however understands that as long as they put in enough time and effort, they’ll achieve their goal eventually. They understand that if they can improve themselves, they can achieve anything – there are no limits on what they can do.

Summary

As you can see there are plenty of mantras you can use as part of your daily routine to keep yourself on track and with a growth mindset.

It may seem that this way of thinking can get in the way of your life because it’s kind of a big deal – you have to completely change your life and the way you do things if you want to be successful.

But true happiness comes from within, not from other people or situations. It doesn’t make sense for you to expect others to make you happy and give you the confidence that only comes from within.

So the next time you feel like saying:

“I’m so tired, I’m just not motivated anymore.”

Or “I don’t understand why I am so bad at doing this and I suck at everything.”

Remember how amazing you will feel when you keep yourself on track and find it within yourself that strength to achieve greatness. You will feel a lot happier, because at the end of it all – you are in control of your happiness. As long as you keep reminding yourself that.
