What does it mean to embody a growth mindset? 

So many of us cognitively understand the growth mindset, yet we struggle to fully adopt one. In a culture obsessed with ‘doing’ and measuring, it’s not easy to stop the fixed mindset from creeping back in and taking over! 

Janis Chan shares how she developed her growth mindset and the change it brought to her life. She discusses how she views herself now and how letting go of expectations liberates her.
