The Effort Effect

If you've ever pondered the "half empty-half full" take on this thing we call life, I think you'll enjoy this.

According to a Stanford psychologist, you’ll reach new heights if you learn to embrace the occasional tumble.

The article explains that people have two kinds of mindsets: growth or fixed.

People with the growth mindset view life as a series of challenges and opportunities for improving.

People with a fixed mindset believe that they are “set” as either good or bad.

The issue is that the good ones believe they don’t have to work hard, and the bad ones believe that working hard won’t change anything.

Very cool read: >>> The Effort Effect

Have a great weekend!

That's Right,

    I bought this print for my kids room because I really like the principle behind it. It helps to teach a lesson about ones mindset and expectations.
