Fixed Mindset vs. Growth Mindset

Do you have a Fixed Mindset or a Growth Mindset?

What’s the difference between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset?

“Those with a fixed mindset see intelligence as being inherent. They are good at some things naturally and see no reason to develop other talents or skills beyond their current abilities.
Those with a growth mindset see intelligence as fluid; something which will increase and flourish through hard work, grit and resilience.”

-Sarah Wright September 2016

How does this affect you? How about your golf game?

Firstly, a Fixed Mindset focuses on the Score…

A Growth Mindset focuses on

-what are we getting out of it?

-what are we learning about us?

-what are we learning about our game?

Secondly, a Growth Mindset gives you the freedom to experiment with different shots and techniques all without fear of the outcome. This is when true growth and improvement occurs.

Don’t put a number on it…Focus on the PROCESS.

VISUALIZE Success – this is the best starting point.

Finally, see yourself as being successful on the course.
How do you think you look when you are playing well?
Remember your good shots.
Play the course in your mind, with your best shots.
