” You are worth the quiet moment. You are worth the deeper breath. You are worth the time it takes to slow down, be still, and rest.”

Morgan Harper Nichols

Fixed mindset vs. growth mindset
Before deciding to create goals or make lasting change in our lives it may be a good idea
to examine our mindset. Carol Dweck’s research suggests we can have a fixed or growth
mindset and they affect the way we learn and grow. Fixed views intelligence and ability
as permanent with little room for change backwards or forwards. While growth views
intelligence and ability as expandable with room for improvement or even regression.
Examining our mindset can help us keep and accomplish goals. During past
goals was it easier to achieve them when you had an open and learning mindset? Follow
the link below to take a mindset assessment to help you in learning more about your
own mindset.

How do I practice a growth mindset?
Good news! You can practice and teach yourself how to be more inclined to have a
growth mindset. While everyone learns different here are just a few ways that may help
you practice a growth mindset. View challenges as opportunities – this allows you to
embrace learning through challenges. Emphasize growth over speed – sometimes
learning will take longer than other times (and that’s ok!). Use the word “yet” – I don’t
understand this subject yet, this helps leave room for growth.
