Growth Mindset

Dr. Dweck coined the terms fixed mindset and growth mindset to explain out belief in our ability to learn.  Recent studies have shown that our brains are capable of growing new neural connections and strengthening existing ones.  Developing a growth mindset increases a person's grit and resilience.  What we say to ourselves about our learning determines whether we have a fixed or growth mindset.
