January's Theme - Growth Mindset


Growth Mindset is the idea that our abilities are not fixed.  We are capable of changing and improving our abilities through hard work, practice and patience.  We can "GROW" our abilities.  

Research by Carol Dweck has shown that students with a "GROWTH MINDSET" are more successful in school because they bounce back from failure and do not get stuck in a negative thinking pattern of self defeat. 

Practicing self-reflection, mindfulness, wellness, kindness, and gratitude are positive steps toward achieving a "GROWTH MINDSET"

"Then do ye remember Me; I will remember you.  Be grateful to Me, and reject not faith" Al-Qur'an, 2:152
