Growth Mindset

Yesterday, when I was going through my kids’ things, I saw the files on the table that were given by their teachers for keeping their homework sheets. I found them very inspiring. Growth Mindset was coined by Dr Carol Dweck after spending 30 years researching on students’ attitude towards failure. Some have rebounded very quickly while others have been devastated even by the slightest setbacks. Those that rebounded quickly adopt the Growth Mindset, meaning they have the underlying beliefs that people can be successful as long as ones put in the time and effort to achieve their goals. In a way, to me, this is a growth on our minds to believe that we can achieve anything if we put in the time and effort to do so. So this year, I wish to adopt the Growth Mindset be it in:

  • blogging – to put in more time and effort in connecting with my readers and WordPress community
  • teaching my kids – praising my kids’ hard work and efforts instead of their intelligence to cultivate a growth mindset
  • learning – keep learning and exploring new things
