Working On Growth Mindset
Kids and adults face multiple problems, roadblocks or flat out failures every day. While we all have different inborn abilities and talents, we can learn from the areas in which we are not successful as well. Sometimes these unsuccessful areas are more helpful in finding and growing our strengths.
Consider the following points adapted from educator and researcher Carol Dweck. Kids and adults alike benefit from mentally reminding themselves of:
-I have great capacity to grow and learn
-I know my learning process will not look like others or follow the same path
-I can learn more from every failure than I can from successes
-I can control my abilities by controlling my efforts
-I choose to take all feedback as constructive
-I will run toward not away from challenges
Our minds are wired to remain safe, avoid discomfort, or change direction at difficulty. Take a few minutes to tell your kids and tell yourselves these affirmations. Especially in a time of change, we all need to take a moment to kindly reassure ourselves of our capabilities.
