#180- The Importance of a Growth Mindset- Special Episode with CJ Johnson

Growth and development are usually not linear. It requires patience, time, and really, faith in the effort that we’re investing.

Today we dive deeper into one of the crucial elements that can make all the difference- growth mindset. I share with you a post from one of our pickleball system members that really illustrates how a growth mindset can help manage the ups and downs of a pickleball’s (or any life’s) learning journey.

The post perfectly encapsulates the principles of the growth mindset.

Now, why is a growth mindset imperative for improvement as opposed to a fixed mindset?

Let me give you an example. Legendary basketball player Michael Jordan was widely regarded as one of the greatest athletes of all times. But his success was not solely attributed to his natural talent, but rather to his unparalleled work ethic, and he had unwavering determination as well.

Embracing effort as the pathway to mastery encourages a love of learning and a resilience, which are essential for great accomplishments and helps one to develop a deeper love of the game.

Hola. Hello. Konichiwa. After 40 years playing tennis, I am now a full-time pickleball player and professional. As a 5.0 rated Senior Pro Pickleball Player and an IPTPA-certified Master Teaching Professional, my focus is on helping players like you learn to play their best pickleball. In 2016, shortly after starting to play pickleball, my friend Tom and I jumped into the highest division at the first US Open in Naples, Florida. That morning it became clear just how much there is to learn in this seemingly simple sport – a lifetime of learning if you so choose. Since 2018, I have been on a mission to share my knowledge of pickleball so other players can enjoy the game at a higher level and attain their pickleball objectives. When not studying or playing pickleball, I like to travel with my other half, Jill.
