Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and imagine yourself at the height of success!
What do you see?
If you’re someone struggling with money, you’d probably imagine a life where you’re the happiest as wealth is abundant.
And if you’re someone who doesn’t have to worry about money, your thoughts might drift towards self-actualization or charity or… maybe more money. It can be anything in the world, really.
The truth is, success means different things to different people, and those who’re already successful got there by having motivation, persistence, a great idea, and maybe a little luck.
But if you asked me, “what’s the one thing that successful people have that others don’t?” my answer would be: **having a growth mindset. **
That’s right! The “answer” lies in how you think, and as an internet entrepreneur who has failed many times before finally making it big, I know that to be true.
Hi, I’m Alex, and today, I’m here to talk about 30 of my most favorite growth mindset quotes that are sure to get you fired up and ready for success!
Fixed Mindset vs. Growth Mindset: What am I Doing Wrong?
Before you set the alarm to go off at 4 AM and decide to think nothing but positive thoughts, let me tell you that it might NOT work. Turns out, getting a growth mindset isn’t as easy as thinking happy thoughts throughout the day.
I found that out the hard way as there used to be a time when I was struggling to make money online, and nothing seemed to work. I was newly married, had rented a decent apartment, but seeing myself slowly going broke triggered a self-defeating spiral.
And despite repeating all my daily affirmations, the situation only seemed to be getting worse. I always knew that I was prone to depression and anxiety, but this time, it was really happening!
Within a few months, I was down to having only $47 in my bank account and severely depressed. I lost all my money investing in something that didn’t work, and my Internet Marketing career died a tragic death.
If not for my wife, who stood beside me like a rock, I don’t think I could’ve ever recovered. After a lot of counseling and introspection, I realized the fatal mistake I made that led me to the point where I was 9 years ago.
I kept investing in opportunities that weren’t working and was too stubborn to admit it.
And that was the result of having a fixed mindset, which I had all my life. After reading dozens of self-help books, it became clear to me that the only way I was going to get back on my feet was to rewire my brain into having a growth mindset.
Having a growth mindset means that you’re always open to trying out new things and don’t let failures stop you from getting what you want. It is the key to influencing the world around us so that we can unlock abundance and prosperity in every sphere of life.
Here are some of the differences between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset.

Alex, It’s interesting, but I don’t have enough time to read books.
You know, I’ve learned one big thing that has changed my life. it’s a small ritual I have every morning (It’s simple but incredibly powerful).
Ready? Here it is :
Listening to audio-books for at least 1 hour every day!
But, not just anything! I consume knowledge for very specific subjects related to personal development.
It’s so practical! You can do it while you take your breakfast, when you are jogging or even when you take the train or the subway to go to work.
Actually, the best audio-books platform is Amazon Audible site.
They have now an amazing offer called Gift Membership that you can send to any of you dearest friends or family member. You can also use it for yourself :)
