Mindset: Post #2--Fixed Mindset
Fixed Mindset People continuously try to prove themselves and support their self-image of success.

Such a fixed orientation makes people avoid risk, stop learning and experimenting, and defensive, eventually leading them to fall behind and become less relevant—the very thing they are trying to avoid.
