Week 10: Growth Mindset

This week, I was able to share the power of the Growth Mindset idea with someone else. They were really down about their grades as it is right after midterms here at OU. I was able to encourage her because I have been in that position, but also, I was able to tell her that failing grades are not defining of your identity or character! A grade of F can simply mean "not yet" and that is perfectly alright. She seemed to be more encouraged by my words at the end of our conversation so I really hope that I was able to help her in some small way!

  1. I love that the growth mindset helped someone feel better. It really helped me when I was feeling down about my grades. I was a straight A student in high school so college was kind of a rude awakening that I could not always live up to my perfectionist standards. However, I think that going through less than perfect grades is a good experience for people. It really is humbling and helpful to realize that it is not the end of the world. Anyway, good job on using the growth mindset to encourage someone else!
