  1. Self Talk

  3. Create new habits
  4. Ask people help
  5. Fake it till you make it

These tips are giving insight into how one can change his fixed mindset into a growth mindset.


Here, I am going to share my reflection on Amal totkay. Firstly, I am sharing my view about self-talk that means the time you spend with yourself, whatever instructions or input you give to yourself, whatever you have inside, will eventually come out. So, it is good if you give yourself empowering speech that “ I can do It”. This is a very useful tip and I most of the time practice it to make myself calm and confident and it really works well.

The second tip is to get out of the comfort zone that means try new things and put yourself in a difficult situation where you have more occasion to rise and this situation require you to operate on higher mindset. The third tip is about creating new habits, in simple words, it means your daily development, how you are improving yourself on daily basis, what new things you are learning to change your fixed mindset. Ask people for help is the fourth tip, that means ask your nearest and dearest people to share feedback if they have observed any change in you.

Favourite Tip

Last but not the least, Fake it till you make it. This is a quite interesting tip because in this you just have to act like you had done this work before just to strengthen yourself, this way you will feel more motivated towards your task and eventually you will succeed in that.

All above-mentioned tips are a great addition in one’s memory and by practising these tips one can have a growth-oriented mindset and this quote explains why it is necessary to change minds;

“Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”
