Attitude is more important than IQ
Your attitude may help more than your IQ, and intelligence is not the most important factor in achieving success.
People can be divided into two categories; those with a “fixed mindset,” and those with a “growth mindset.”
“With a fixed mindset, you believe you are who are and you cannot change. People with a growth mindset believe that they can improve with effort. They outperform those with a fixed mindset, even when they have a lower IQ, because they embrace challenges, treating them as opportunities to learn something new.” - Dr. Travis Bradberry, co-author of Emotional Intelligence 2.0.
By seeing obstacles as learning opportunities, we can let go of our “fixed mindsets” and learn to embrace growth.
