Three thoughts approach to applying growth mindset.
First I think, there is a lesson in everything. Regardless of how things start or turn out, there is a lesson to be learned and I just need to pay attention and reflect to learn the lesson.
Second I think, there is more than one way to succeed. When things don’t quite work out the way I think they should I think to myself that there must be another avenue to success and I need to find a new way to approach things or seek help finding the way to succeed.
