How many times have you said, “I can’t do this” out loud or in your head. When you say this, you are promoting a fixed mindset. Fixed mindsets don’t help us grow or achieve our goals. To develop a growth mindset, our brains need to be complemented and treated with compassion. A growth mindset helps us to develop intelligence, talents and abilities.
The word “yet” is powerful. The words “I can’t do this” are so different from the words “I can’t do this YET”. When speaking with yourself or someone else, add the word “yet” to words you might have spoken or heard.
