Six Dresses, May Flowers Edition, Dress Three: Here’s Why (and How) to Cultivate a Growth Mindset

One of spring’s greatest joys is being out in the garden. There’s nothing like the emergence of new life and nurturing it along. That’s why I love gardening; it means growth.

I’ve found that in career and in life, having a growth mindset is key. In her book, Mindset, Stanford professor Carol Dweck explains that with a growth mindset, people believe that their natural abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work; innate talent is just the starting point. This way of thinking creates a love of learning and an ability to be resilient, which are necessary for success.

As an entrepreneur, cultivating and nurturing a growth mindset has been a vital part of my journey. Curiosity and problem solving are the core; vision and passion are the fuel. It’s about constantly striving to create and build; to do better and be better; to inspire and be inspired.

That’s why you’ll always find me growing stuff – vegetables and flowersfamily and friendsbusiness and community – always learning and evolving along the way. Because the most satisfying thing to grow is yourself. Never stop!
