When You Grow, You Glow
What We're Talking About

The principle we're discussing

Every day is an opportunity for growth—for yourself and for the people around you.

The growth mindset really lives up to its name. Continuing to set goals for yourself and looking for ways to grow as a person, partner, friend, and colleague means that you’re constantly pushing back against those fixed-mindset triggers. As a bonus, pushing yourself to grow also pushes the people around you to grow. 

Why it Matters

Why this principle is important and matters to you

Transitioning from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset can feel like a big change. It is a big change. But it’s not the last change you’ll make. That’s the whole point of having a growth mindset. You’ll keep changing.

Continuing to nurture your growth mindset takes effort—not just to push yourself to grow, but to acknowledge when your fixed mindset tries to show up and to work through it. Every time you’re able to say “my fixed mindset is here, and this is how I need to work through what it’s bringing up,” you grow. And we love that journey for you.

How You Can Use It

This provides practical ways to apply learnings from this Spark

As you build and maintain your growth mindset, here are some questions you should consider every day:

  • What are the opportunities for learning and growth today? For myself? For the people around me?
  • What is my plan to tackle the opportunities in front of me? How can I help other people tackle the opportunities in front of them?
  • When, where, and how will I embark on these plans?
  • What obstacles might I face with my plans, and how will I approach them?

If you run into obstacles that completely stop your plans, take the time to start new plans. Ask yourself the same questions, whether you’re on the first version of your plan or the fifteenth.

And then, when you succeed (because you will!), don’t forget to ask yourself these final questions:

  • What did I learn from this experience?
  • How can I do things differently next time?
  • What do I have to do to maintain and continue growth?
