Growth Mindset

What is Growth Mindset?

A growth mindset is believing in the power of yourself and your brain! We know our intellect and abilities develop when we try hard things, use the right strategies, and don't give up. So a growth mindset is when we know, with practice, we will get better at something

  • the belief that if you have to work for success you are not clever

  • a desire to blame others or outside circumstances when things don’t go your way
