It was never fun being in the Ramones, which is the saddest thing of all, cause it shoulda been fun. It was probably fun when we played Performance Studio, and maybe some of the early gigs at CBGB's.

I think people are so immersed in the anti-Scientology mindset by consuming tabloid media and stories about space aliens. It's baffling.

Each game we play, every game is a championship-game mindset. -Dan Quinn

I was a defense attorney before I was a prosecutor, and so knowing what the defense is going to try to do is something that you have to do constantly when you're in trial.

My mindset is always to be victorious, to win the match. -Diego Costa

I'm of the mindset that God loves everyone. -Brad Paisley

I feel like everything needs to be stylised; that's always been my mindset. -Travis Scott

It took me a month to get out of the mindset of O.J. But even now, still, I think it might have done something to my vocal chords. I went to see the doctor, and he was like, 'I don't see anything. You're fine.' But mentally, I might have broke a little bit. -Cuba Gooding, Jr.

At Harman, we had to reinvent ourselves so that we can compete on a global playing field. We did it by instituting a culture where teams can take calculated risks.

If I stay in one mindset or place for too long, I get crazy. -Mac Miller

I approach my interviews with the mindset of, exactly what are we selling? How can I sell it the hardest and the most effectively in the fewest words possible?

My mindset was that I was always going to be in Toronto my whole career, but I was never naive. -DeMar DeRozan

Day 1, when I was drafted to the Toronto Raptors, they had this stigma on them: Every guy leaves. Nobody wants to be here. Superstars, nobody wants to play in Canada. From Day 1, my whole mindset and approach to the game, being in Toronto, was I wanted to change that whole narrative to that whole organization. -DeMar DeRozan

With poker, you have a resolution of the hand within a couple of minutes. Whereas, even if the thought process in investing is very much the same, you're looking at an outcome that could be 2, 3, 4, 5 years from when you make the original decision. And the mindset related to that is very different. -David Einhorn

When I was working on 'To Pimp A Butterfly' and 'DAMN.,' I'm really making music for Kendrick. It's a different mindset than when I'm making music for me.

We found that process praise predicted the child's mindset and desire for challenge five years later. -Carol S. Dweck

You try something, it doesn't work, and maybe people even criticize you. In a fixed mindset, you say, 'I tried this, it's over.' In a growth mindset, you look for what you've learned. -Carol S. Dweck

When someone endorses a fixed mindset, it can limit them, even if they're successful at the moment, because if they start struggling and tumbling, they can lose their confidence, but also, they may not create a growth mindset environment for others. -Carol S. Dweck

With a fixed mindset, you're so worried about how smart or talented you are, you don't take on challenges. You don't try new things. -Carol S. Dweck

When there's a setback, someone with a fixed mindset will start thinking, 'Maybe I don't have what it takes?' They may get defensive and give up. A hallmark of a successful person is that they persist in the face of obstacle, and often, these obstacles are blessings in disguise. -Carol S. Dweck

Maybe you don't know how to do something at work. Instead of asking the boss or seeking someone as a mentor, you might not want to show them your ignorance.

I teach a freshman seminar every year, and we delve very, very deeply into their mindsets. They read scientific articles, but we also focus on what their mindset is, and they learn to recognize when they are in more of a fixed mindset, because we're all a mixture. -Carol S. Dweck

In my early work, my time in the batting cage, that's serious, and that's when I feel like I'm really working.

You're supposed to have fun when you play games. -Aaron Judge

I've always had that mindset of, 'OK, I may be hot this month or doing really well this month, but don't get too high, don't get too low – just enjoy it.' Don't ride the rollercoaster, basically. I always thought about it like, I'm not going to an amusement park, I'm going to a baseball field. -Aaron Judge

That mindset never changes. It should never change. If you've been in the league for 14 years or been in the league not even a day, you should have that mindset that you're going to go out there and prove yourself and earn a spot. -Aaron Judge

If I came in with the mindset of just being happy that I got drafted and just to settle for a backup job, that wouldn't be myself. -Baker Mayfield

I feel it's better we have an open mindset to see what exactly we are trying to say. In 'Mulk,' we have not criticised any community, and neither have we said any community is good or bad. We have just shown the true picture and left it to the audience to make the choice. -Taapsee Pannu

I know how good I am, and I know where I can go if I'm in the right mindset and respecting my opponent. -Luke Rockhold

As an actor, if you want to explore something new inside you, you need to do something different that you don't do in your regular life. You need to think in a different way.
