How Fixed Versus Growth Mindset Affects People in Recovery | Episode 178

Fragmented to Whole: Life Lessons from 12 Step Recovery

Sep 19 2022 • 11 mins

The difference between fixed mindset and growth mindset is that if you have a fixed mindset, it means you think you are the way you are and there's no possibility of changing. Your personality and abilities are fixed. But if you have a growth mindset, you believe that change is possible, you believe your intelligence can grow, and you believe you have the ability to change your long standing behaviors. This week’s episode 178 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about how fixed versus growth mindset affects people in recovery!

In this episode of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I’m sharing where the ideas of fixed versus growth mindset comes from, the research that backs this mindset shift, and how you can shift from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset to make changes in your own life.

A huge part of recovery is coming to understand that we have certain underlying beliefs or subconscious scripts about the nature of reality and about ourselves, other people, the world, and what kind of change is possible. Then we can work on learning that many of those beliefs and unconscious scripts are bullshit and were making our lives unmanageable. And finally, we go about the business of changing those beliefs to better oursevles.

Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on living a more whole life and to hear even more about the points outlined above.
