Mindset

We have been discussing Mindset this term.
We found out that there are two different kinds of Mindsets - Fixed and Growth.

We have been discussing Growth Mindset and how this can affect our learning.
We have been working on how to change some of our Fixed Mindset sayings into Growth Mindset sayings.
This is what we have come up with.


Instead of
“Is this good enough?”

say
“Is this good enough for the time and effort I have put in? “



Instead of
“I give up!”

say
“I wont give up, I am going to keep trying!”



Instead of
“I can’t do this?”

say
“I will be able to do this if I never give up and persevere.”



Instead of
“We haven’t done this before?”

say
“I haven’t learnt this yet”
“I will be able to do this soon”


Instead of
“This is too hard?”

say
“I have not practiced this yet, but I will get better and it will get easier.”


Instead of
“I don’t understand?”

say
“I will understand, if I keep practicing.”


Instead of
“I’m just not good at this?”

say
“I’m not great or the best, but I can still improve and get better in the future.”


Instead of
“I don’t like this?”

say
“I don’t like this yet, but I’m going to constantly keep on trying and I might like it in the future.”
If you have never failed, you’ve never tried anything new.
