Fixed v Growth Mindset for Accounting Exam Success
Why is mindset important in developing positive habits, especially regarding Accounting Exams?
Your fixed beliefs about you will hold you back from making positive change. If you have a trait that you believe cannot be changed, such as your intelligence, or your bad habits, you will avoid situations that could possibly be uncomfortable or that you think that are useless. Such as your success in Accounting Exams.
In a fixed mindset, people believe their qualities are fixed traits and therefore cannot change. These people document their intelligence and talents rather than working to develop and improve them. They also believe that talent alone leads to success, and effort is not required.
Alternatively, in a growth mindset, people have an underlying belief that their learning and intelligence can grow with time and experience. When people believe they can get smarter, they realize that their effort has an effect on their success, so they put in extra time, leading to higher achievement.

The Struggle; Accounting Exams & Career
So often in the shadows when the boxer succeeds and is more likely to be front and center when the boxer fails.
The cornerman must have detachment from their boxer, but at the same time an unwavering devotion to that boxer’s well-being.
They must be a psychologist, able to assist the fighter through the emotional minefield that is the preparation for combat.
A Strategist, a General, able to see what it’s going to take to secure victory and offering the kind of tactical advice that can be put into practice in the crucible of battle.
In this conversation with fellow Accounting Exam "Cornerman" Yvonne Starkey, a fellow Chartered Accountant/ Lecturer/ Coach from South Africa we chatted about our businesses and our Accounting Student clients
- Why we like working with Accounting Students
- What do we say to students who worry that we will judge them
- Would we employ people who failed their exams
- Was I the "perfect" student
- Do students take on coaching only after they have failed
and much more.......
