Growth Mindset Quotes are powerful! Discover these 25 growth mindset quotes, sayings and phrases to inspire colleagues, students, teachers and friends.

Why do some people get up after failure and others stay down? That’s a question Prof. Carol Dweck wanted to answer.

The results of her research show it’s al related to our mindset. A growth mindset rather than talent defines future success. Therefore, to succeed, we need a growth mindset, not a fixed mindset. We need a mindset that sees challenges as opportunities for growth and expansion.

And the good thing is: we can develop a growth mindset. As Carol Dweck says in Mindset, The Psychology of Success: “Picture your brain forming new connections as you meet the challenge and learn. Keep on going.”

To help develop a powerful growth mindset I have collected a list of powerful mindset quotes. Whether you are a teacher looking for growth mindset phrases for students or looking for a bit of inspiration for yourself, I hope you find them motivational and inspirational.
