Thankfulness and Growth Mindsets

A post-Thanksgiving reflection...

Having a growth mindset is, basically, believing that one is not born with a finite ability, but rather the capacity to improve with focus, effort, and commitment. Inherent to the idea of improvement is the assumption that one has multiple opportunities to test their skills and learn from the feedback received from those experiences.

We are also learning that taking a growth mindset approach improves one's chances of success.

Therefore, during this season of giving thanks for the gifts and blessings bestowed upon us, let us not forget what is potentially the one thing we should be most thankful for, but it often forgotten - the opportunities we have each day to learn, share, and get better.
