Today's Live Class Discussion was very good so much so that I thought I'd make this a post to my blog. Today we talked about Mindsets and the two types. First, a mindset is an individual's way of thinking. There are two types of mindset sets: fixed and growth. People that have a fixed mindset believe that their abilities are limited to what they are born with. People that have a growth mindset believe that their talents and abilities are unknown and there are endless possibilities to grow their talent. There have been times when I would get frustrated with my art and think that I am not going to get any better no matter how much I practice.
