Do you have a story or two your parents shared with you or wise advice they gave you that stuck with you through the years? I know a number of stories and phrases I’ve heard them say which still ring in my ears and those lessons have been very powerful in shaping my values and perspective in my growing years.
I know I’ll be teaching my children many many things, giving countless advices and sharing loads of wisdom over their lifetime, but if there’s one that I hope they will retain and hold on to is having a growth-oriented view aka growth mindset. I never knew this term ‘growth mindset’ until I ‘met’ Carol Dweck but now I can put a name to this mindset/thinking/perspective that my dear mother has always been preaching. Yes, it is one of those lessons deeply impressed onto my heart which proved to be very helpful and useful over the years.
