What a Mindset Is

Our mindsets are the mental lenses that shape how we view the world. And so depending on how we view the world, that shapes how we think, how we learn, and how we operate.


Why We Should Grow Our Mindsets

95% of us have room to grow with our mindsets.

And if we can enhance our mindsets, we can enhance how we think, how we learn, and how we behave, and therefore also improve our effectiveness and productivity in whatever sphere we are operating in.


Mindsets are neural pathways

The thing about mindsets is they involve our neural networks and pathways.

And so all our mindsets are are these neural networks within our brain, that when we repeat certain ways of thinking in certain contexts, those pathways becomes strengthened when we are in those contexts, and the stronger they are, the more ready they are to fire or send signals.
