Rocky and Prue start the show with a couple of quotes, good and bad that give a bit of a flavour of success mindset and the positive side of mistakes.

Rocky moves on to some real life examples about accepting responsibility. The hosts also talk about knowing yourself and pushing yourself to success and Rocky talks about the importance of keeping good company and uses the quote “we become the average of the 5 people we associate with most” So if you want to be successful, then associate with successful people!

The hosts sum up the success mindset as “mental toughness” and people with a success mindset don’t give significance to setbacks and build their life around creating success. Rocky gives a real world example of two students, one who had a success mindset and embraced their mistakes and another who had a fixed mindset and avoided mistakes.

The hosts compare the fixed mindset and the growth mindset and give us some details about the difference between the two including statistics and examples.

Finally to give yourself a success mindset and become a better learner, first you need to believe you can become a better learner. Prue sets a challenge of analysing how you react when you encounter adversity and questioning if you have a growth mindset or a fixed mindset.
