I found Carol Dweck’s Mindset book incredibly helpful on this – it’s really altered how I view my mindset. I originally thought that the tension I was grappling with was between Abundance – Scarcity but on reading her book I found it far more helpful to think of a spectrum between Growth – Fixed Mindsets.
@juliaforster I totally agree with the importance of a ‘growth mindset’. It’s important to know that we are in a process of learning and that we are capable of change. It is true that some things come easier to us than others but if we can be patient with ourselves we can keep making progress.
