The stress we experience is our reaction to a perceived loss of control over an adverse situation
In a fixed mindset people/students believe their basic abilities, their intelligence, their talents, are just fixed traits. They have a certain amount and that’s that, and then their goal becomes to look smart all the time and never look dumb. In a growth mindsetpeople/students understand that their talents and abilities can be developed through effort, good teaching and persistence. They don’t necessarily think everyone’s the same or anyone can be Einstein, but they believe everyone can get smarter if they work at it.—Carol Dweck, Stanford University
Resilience; I feel renewed energy
I will learn from my mistakes to improve
Effort is a positive, since I can control how much I apply
I can be better the next time I try this
Eduardo Briceño, Co-Founder & CEO Mindset Works
Mindset= the established set of attitudes/beliefs held by someone

Think about one example to share with a colleague…
