I used to believe my abilities were fixed – until sporting achievements opened my eyes to growth mindset.
After childhood math trauma, I was convinced I lacked numerical talent. But unexpected successes in sports showed me that with strategic practice, I could improve dramatically. My fixed mindset began to crumble.
I realised if I could excel in areas deemed “impossible,” anything was achievable through dedication and incremental progress. This growth mindset quickly accelerated my Muay Thai.
Rather than battling opponents, I saw fights as benchmarks for self-improvement. Win or lose, I focused on skill development. Pushing my boundaries drove rapid growth I never thought attainable.
The moral is this: cultivate a growth mindset to accelerate your Muay Thai abilities. With consistent, strategic training and a focus on improvement, your potential has no boundaries. Early sporting successes proved this to me. Your only restrictions are self-imposed.
