Have you ever wondered why some people are not successful even after studying abroad and while others are very successful even without graduating from a university?
It is all about what kind of mind set they have.
In today’s post I decided to talk about three types of mind sets in details and help you understand what kind you should have in order to maximize your chances to success.
Fixed mind set
People with such kind of mind sets are not usually set for progress. They are left behind in those old “sweet” days. They often remember the past with a great nostalgia and hate almost everything that surrounds themselves in real time.
They strongly believe that life in their country many and many years ago was much better than now. Or it can also happen that they did something really bad in the past and often find it very hard to forget and forgive themselves.
If you are going to study abroad, remember that with a fixed mind set you won’t be able to go far.
Flexible mind set
People with flexible mind set are open to new ideas, challenges and conditions in life. Not everything can shock them and put their spirit off. They don’t complain about anything and see many difficulties of life as a challenge.
They experience some sort of success in their life but often feel something hidden holds them back. They often don’t know what it is but the good news is that I am going to tell you what holds them back in the next paragraph.
Just remember that with a flexible mind set, you may be able to avoid things like cultural shock and hold a mediocre level relationship with your international friends and professors.
But one of the best things about studying abroad is building a network and creating something grandiose together, isn’t it?
Growth mind set
Yes…, this is what you really need. People with growth mind sets are those who are mostly successful. Not only they know how to tolerate hardships of life and overcome them eventually but they set themselves for success as well.
They learn from every single opportunity they may have. If they fail, they see it as a big and meaningful lesson. They learn from it. They hang out with different calibers of people and learn something new from them every time.
They learn something new even from kids or from those homeless people too.
People with growth mind sets often think about providing a value to society and believe that building a network is a win-and-win situation.
