Matthew Turner is a British author who interviewed 163 Succesful Entrepreneurs from all around the world to try and identify some common traits.
One thing he discovered, that all these people had in common, was their attitude towards failure.
In order to become successful, these people had all learned to embrace failure and learn from their mistakes. In fact, they viewed making mistakes as an essential part of achieving success.
This attitude is what’s known as a ‘Growth Mindset’ and it’s something that Matthew has spent a lot of time researching, reading and writing about.
And it’s a mindset he tries to apply to his own life as an author, entrepreneur and father.
In this interview, Matthew explains the difference between a fixed and a growth mindset and why we all have the choice to develop a growth mindset if we want to.
