Mindset is a set of ideas and attitudes, that shape the way someone thinks about themselves and the world. It is often difficult to counteract its effects upon analysis and decision making processes. It is a fixed mental attitude or disposition that predetermines a person’s responses to and interpretations of situations. It can also be seen as incident of a person’s Weltanschauung or philosophy of life. Mindsets are really important for learning new things, embracing new challenges and dealing with setbacks.
