Be Happy: Embrace a Growth Mindset

Forbes has come out with an interesting article on how to achieve long-term happiness. Turns out the way to be happy in life and business is to embrace the growth mindset.  What does that mean?

Those with a fixed mindset aren’t curious and aren’t willing to seek out change, always struggling to recover from setbacks that naturally occur. By nature, they are resistant to change and reluctant to learn, with zero interest in self-improvement.

They can more easily demonstrate self-awareness and self-compassion, treating their failures and challenges as opportunities for growth.
