Today think about something where you didn’t give up but instead actually learned from the stumbles and failures along the way. What happened? How exactly did you do better next time around? Growth mindset teaches us to learn from everything, even if it did not turn out as planned. With a fixed mindset failure means we are not good enough. Maybe we should quit all together. Growth mindset says “I need to practice more. Perhaps I have to practice differently. I am not good enough yet.” Today tap into the power of NOT YET.
Tomorrow we will talk about growth mindset in overdrive.
