Fixed or Growth mindset?

After my blog on video games I came across this article by Vinay Patankar “How Playing Multiplayer Video Games Help me Develop a Growth Mindset”.  He was inspired about this idea after reading a post from Salman Khan, founder of Khan Academy about fixed or growth mindset.  Where a fixed mindset stops you from taking risks in attempting new challenges and a growth mindset sees you taking risks and having success and failures in your learning journey.

Viney  believes that video games can give you confidence and that you can learn and grow and develop a growth mindset.  Take a look at this video; Can video games make you smarter?

If you are like me and are more inclined to have a fixed mindset, read this article to help you move to a growth mindset or just play video games ;).
