Your Vision Determines your Destination

In her bestselling book Mindset – The New Psychology of Success, renowned psychologist Carol Dweck, Ph.D., describes how almost every area of human endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how people think about their talents and abilities.

She speaks of fixed versus growth mindsets.

Fixed mindsets think “this is who I am.”  Growth mindsets think “this is where I am”.

Fixed mindsets think “this describes me.”  Growth mindsets think “this describes me now.”

The way we think about ourselves can either paralyze us or propel us forward.

“How do I look?” can either be a question answered by other people, or it can be a question of ourselves, asking how each of us view the world.  “How do I look” can easily be rephrased into “How do I look at myself and at life?”

Thankfully, how you see yourself isn’t fixed.  Like any skill, mindsets can be learned.  That is incredibly freeing.  Read that again.  Mindsets can be learned.

Your vision of yourself determines your destination. 

What you have done matters, but not as much as what you will do. 

What you have learned matters, but not as much as what you will learn. 

What you have thought matters, but not as much as what you will think.

Growth CPR strives to maintain a growth mindset.  Heck, growth is part of our name!  And we want to share and promote that mindset with Main Street CPAs.  We want them and their clients to be successful, however they have defined success.

Think of what your firm or advisory practice could be in 5 or 10 years if you started today.  Think “I can do this”.  Think “how can I do this?” 

Your vision determines your destination.  We are here to help.  Come join us.  Let’s grow!
