00:04:39--> 00:05:00

And handling that. Okay, so let me get to the main topic that I want to talk about. I want to talk about something called mindset and and why I wanted to link this to Donald Trump because one of the things that I've been studying is this whole topic of mindset. Now mindset is really to do with the way we think

00:05:00--> 00:05:24

about ourselves the way we think about ourselves. And generally, it's believed that there are two types of mindset. One is called a fixed mindset. And the other is a growth mindset. So there's two types of mindsets, the fixed the fixed mindset, and the growth mindset. Now, it's interesting that

00:05:25--> 00:06:15

people may have a mixture of mindsets, you may have a growth mindset when it comes to some things. And you may have a fixed mindset when it comes to others. But what is a fixed mindset? Basically, the fixed mindset is the way of thinking about yourself. And if you think this way about yourself, you probably will think about others in this way as well. You think that qualities are basically fixed, your qualities are basically fixed, I'm smart, I'm rich, I'm intelligent, I'm nice. I'm, or maybe you think you're stupid. You're incapable, you know, but you the fixed mindset is basically the idea that these qualities and these attributes are fixed, and they are set in stone, and there's

00:06:15--> 00:06:53

just nothing that you can do to change them. Now, this is particularly it's a it's actually a very, very dangerous and a very, very negative way of thinking, I want you to pay attention, brothers and sisters, please, because I'm going to be asking you to, at the end, write down what you've learnt in this 15 minutes. And I want you to comment on it in your comments, and I want you to share it and share this video and tell other people about it. If you don't do that, you're not going to really be able to

00:06:54--> 00:07:34

share in the surprise that I'm going to be giving you it's going to be so exciting. So the fixed mindset why what what's this got to do with Donald Trump? The reason is Donald Trump, as because as I don't watch, to be honest, I've watched very little news, I find it really depressing, really negative. And at the end of the day, it's all brainwashing us. That's what I think most of the news is just brainwashing. It's making you think about what they want you to think about not what you should be thinking about, right? Like I said, you should really be thinking about your connection with Allah. But anyway, you know, you can't avoid the news. Totally. So I have been watching a

00:07:34--> 00:08:20

little bit of Donald Trump and some of the things that people have been, you know, some of the stuff about him, right, some of the stuff that he's been saying, the way he's been behaving, I noticed something very interesting is that Donald Trump seems to display that the classic characteristics of somebody with a fixed mindset. In other words, he seems to think he seems to think he's very intelligent. He says, I've got a higher IQ. He thinks he's naturally talented, he's naturally gifted, he naturally knows how to make money. And it's very interesting that a people a person with that type of mindset also very easily attributes to other races to other cultures, and to other

00:08:20--> 00:08:32

people, also, that they have sort of fixed, almost fixed qualities. And that really explains the way he talks about black people, the way he talks about Muslims, the way he talks about Latinos.

00:08:33--> 00:09:17

You know, the way he talks about people, people from different nationalities, even the Chinese, you know, although he may think about certain people in you know, people's in a more positive way. But generally, you can see that he has this idea that people have the sort of fixed qualities. And you know, Muslims are like this, and Latinos are like that. And generally, these people are like this. And that's because he himself thinks that he has these fixed qualities. Now, what's the problem? The problem with this is if you think that your qualities are fixed, what you are always trying to do is prove to everybody exactly how you are. It's, you're just reinforcing the idea you have about

00:09:17--> 00:09:59

yourself. So if you think you're naturally talented, you're always looking to how well am I doing? What level Am I at? How good am I how much am I achieving? How awesome Am I you're always trying to prove how good and amazing you are? And the moment you're confronted with something that challenges that what will you do either you will avoid it altogether. Or if something challenges it, then you start to blame other people. Now, have you noticed that about Donald Trump? Right. Have you noticed that throughout this election, the moment it looks like someone is criticizing him or he's failing, he starts to blame other people. He blames the FBI.

00:10:00--> 00:10:48

He blames the media conspiracy, he blames the establishment. You know, he'll blame everyone and everything for his failures. He doesn't look at them as his failures, he thinks he's talented, he's great, he is the best. So it's something wrong, it's something's wrong. It's other people's fault. As you can understand brothers and sisters, this is very, very dangerous. Imagine a family, or a company or an organization, or a country, with people who have that a lot of that type of fixed mindset, people leading it, when things start to go wrong, instead of learning from those mistakes, they'll look for ways to lie, they'll lie, they'll cheat, they'll fix things, so that they are

00:10:48--> 00:11:37

always made to look good. And they will never learn from their mistakes. That is not a way that you want to be. And that is not the way you want your children to be. What you want is to have the growth mindset. The growth mindset is the way of thinking that everything that is a challenge is an opportunity to learn. It's an opportunity to grow, that you are loved challenges, you will look forward to challenges as very interesting that if you've been listening to me, you would have heard me talk about the marshmallow experiment. That was done in Stanford University. And it's very interesting that this discussion about mindset has also come from a professor in Stanford

00:11:37--> 00:12:19

University. So there's a lot of good stuff coming out of that. And interestingly, again, a lot of the research about this has been done on children. And what they did is they they gave children some tests, they gave them some quizzes, they gave them some tests. And they found that children with the fixed mindset when they were invited to do tests that were more difficult and more challenging, and that might be outside of their comfort zone. The kids with the fixed mindset, they weren't interested, they didn't want to do it. Whereas other kids, kids who had the growth mindset, they were enthusiastic. They were, I remember, there's even one quote with this goal of saying, Oh,

00:12:19--> 00:13:01

that's so good. And like if I make mistakes, I'm gonna learn, and I'm going to understand why I made those mistakes, and I can do better next time. So you can see what in a really positive, amazing type of mental attitude about yourself, is that you always think I always have room for growth. I always, always have room to learn, I can always be improving myself and making myself better. So So brothers and sisters, that's really it. I thought that Donald Trump. Now some of you may say, wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. If Donald Trump has a fixed mindset, why would he want to be President of the United States? I mean, surely, he's setting himself up for failure. Okay, one of

00:13:01--> 00:13:43

the things about people with a fixed mindset is they always have to try and prove themselves, they're always trying to prove themselves. So I actually probably is really intelligent, he probably does have some really genuine talents, right? The problem is his mindset, right? If he could end by here's the beautiful thing. You can change your mindset, just because you have a fixed mindset. You don't need to keep having a fixed mindset. You could change that fixed mindset to a growth mindset. It's just a question of understanding and changing the way you think it's it's not really that difficult. And you can be helped to do that. So the thing is that a person with a fixed mindset

00:13:43--> 00:14:20

wants to prove themselves, Donald Trump clearly wanted to prove what's the ultimate proof. I'm going to become president. Yeah. And, you know, that's it. And it's almost like you can see his facial expressions the way he is, it's all about, you know, he's proving something to everybody. Yeah. So, you know, at the end of the day, I don't want to talk about whether he's a bad guy, whether he's not whether this or what that, you know, unfortunately, people, many people are a product of their circumstances, their upbringing. And this is the thing brothers and sisters, I want you to pay attention to, because many of you are either mothers, or you are fathers, or you are definitely

00:14:20--> 00:14:36

potential mothers and fathers. And here's the thing, the way you talk to your kids will determine whether they have a fixed mindset or a growth mindset. The way you talk to your kids, the way you bring them up, the way you talk to them will determine their mindset.

00:14:37--> 00:14:59

And by the way, I am sure that it doesn't need me to convince you that Islam is all about the growth mindset is being a Muslim is all about having a growth mindset. Right? What did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, the best thing that a father can give to his kids is good luck, right meaning

00:15:00--> 00:15:26

You can give them you can train them, you can develop within them good manners, right? Everything in Islam is about how can you can improve yourself, how can you better yourself? How can you grow as a human being? How can you grow close and increase your connection to Allah? Islam is all about the growth mindset. So here's a simple thing. I'll give you an example. Your kid does a picture.

00:15:27--> 00:16:12

And you take that picture. And you say, well done animate, you're so talented. You're So Amazing. Look how good this picture is. And you stick the picture up on the wall. Look how talented you are. So what do you think if you do that? are you setting within your kid's mind? The growth mindset, or the fixed mindset? Which one is it? Yeah, you're right. That's the that's the fixed mindset, because they're gonna think, yeah, I'm talented. Look how good I am. Wow, here's my picture on the wall. And it's there, because I'm talented. And if you keep doing that to your kids, whether it's with their reading, whether it's their exams, yeah, it's all about the points. It's all about your grade,

00:16:12--> 00:16:55

right? If it's all about that for them, you will be putting with them. If you keep telling them you're talented, you're so clever. You're so smart. You're so beautiful. You're so this, you're so that you're so use, and you will be creating a fixed mindset in them. And you're going to be creating a little Donald Trump, that's what you're going to be creating. Yeah. Like people like him? Is that what you want? Is that what you want to do with your kids, brothers and sisters? Do you see how important this stuff is? Do you see how important it is?
