Fixed mindset v Growth mindset

Thought Leaders Series: 2019

The issue with religious folks (all faiths) lies in their understanding and interpretation of ‘reality’.

For religious folks reality is subjective, therefore events and history is subjective. In other words reality is seen only through the theological or doctrinal tenets of their ‘sacred text’.

The issue here is that these sacred texts were in fact written by thinkers and philosophers who were themselves trying to make sense of the complexities of their world. If these folks were alive today they would have corrected most of their errors themselves.

But because these texts are deemed sacred, they stay fixed. As a result religious folks often operate with a fixed mindset, as to a growth mindset which opens up new possibilities for knowledge acquisition, understanding and progress.
