A growth mindset makes you a lifelong learner. Great advice at any age.
What has spared Garcia from a similar fate is that Garcia has learned to process challenge in a much more constructive way, as my colleague Jaime Diaz captures in his summary of Garcia’s Masters triumph Sunday night. By accepting the occasional bad outcome, by learning to embrace his failures rather than rail against them, Garcia hasn’t just “matured,” as we like to say. He's adopted the principles of a growth mindset. And to be clear, Dweck says a growth mindset is something that can be developed over time. In the same way we can learn to run faster races or hit longer drives, we can also learn to look at challenge as an opportunity rather than an obstacle.
