Here’s an Example of Growth Mindset

I was watching the evening news the other day and I saw this example of growth mindset.

Did you see the PBS segment about Patrice Banks who learned to be a mechanic well into adulthood?  She then started her own shop targeted at women customers and staffed exclusively by women.


  • “It was rough, this dirty garage with a bunch of men that don’t care, cursing, screaming, yelling at me. But, again, I kept telling myself, like, Patrice, you’re on a mission here. Right? This is just growth, you’re learning. You’re not here for these people, right? You’re here for women and you’re here to learn.”


If you are looking for a great example of growth mindset then give it a watch.

Great out of sports example of growth mindset.
