Happy #MotivationalMonday (9/11/17)
As I prepared this Motivational Monday, I couldn’t help but think what a great topic this week brings on this day, September 11th.
As we remember the tragic day of the Twin Towers collapsing sixteen years ago, and now the impending path of Hurricane Irma on the state of Florida, I believe attitude/response is very applicable.
Your attitude/response is your MINDSET! It is the hardest thing to control, in my opinion, and can be very tricky... at times.
Fixed vs. Growth, something I have researched a lot and will continue to research because of its power on my and everyone else’s success. A fixed mindset is someone who blames the challenges in his/her life, while a growth mindset is someone who embraces the challenges and learns.
For some time now failure has been labeled incorrectly, people see it as a permanent thing. However, Carol Dweck believes, “Success is how you deal with failure. Failure is INFORMATION!”
Too many of us don’t approach failure/setbacks as information, we see it as the end of the road; when that happens, you stop growing as an individual. What is your reaction going to be with the next event in your life? Attitude is a choice, have the right response!
