I am republishing this article from four years ago... because even though it doesn't say "fixed mindset" and "growth mindset" it is about that...
Frank and Matt... the two archetypes of seekers in all areas of life. relationship seekers, weight loss, prosperity, mindset, spirituality... seekers are seekers!
I got an email in my inbox from a marketing teacher of mine today.
I liked the subject line. I followed the link. I found a fascinating article.
It is about marketing, or better said, two types of marketers, two types of seekers of success, one is "Frank" the other is "Matt".
Frank and Matt are two different types of marketers. But...
The idea of Frank and Matt fits "seekers" to a T. Seekers are exactly matching the two types, they are like Frank and Matt: grabbing for a quick fix or building a path... so I want you to put aside your distaste for marketing and business, and I want you to go over to that site and read it. I mean read every freaking' word on it. Map it on yourself. See yourself. Get justified or find out how and why you have been mislead.
Then come back here and help me by posting a comment.
I want to duplicate that page with lots of real examples of "right on the path" and "stumbling through trying everything" path. I won't call them Frank and Matt... I'll probably call them Mihaela and Chyanna... or Aaron and Alex... based on real students of mine, matching exactly the two types. Or maybe I'll make up some names... lol.
Please: be of service and help me. We'll all benefit from it. You: because you'll gain some clarity. And clarity is the first step on a long road to heaven.
Others because they will find out that they are not the only ones making wrong steps. Their anguish and shame will lessen and will be able to become Matts, finally.
And me: because I will know more about you: who I am talking to, what you are dealing with, and all that lovely stuff.
The more I know about you, the better I can serve you.
OK... here is the story of Matt and Frank from Andre Chaperon
Read the pictures too, much info is there. Don't get distracted by not knowing what the words mean: pay attention to the behavior and the mindset...
