Ever tried to have a tough conversation with someone and it went terribly wrong?

Whether in business, athletics or any other field, achieving success doesn’t come from natural ability and intelligence alone. It comes from having a growth mindset.
Growth-minded individuals are constantly looking for ways to get a little better than they were yesterday. They aren’t afraid to take risks or put in the extra effort to become better and achieve their desired results.
