Motivational Monday

“What on earth would make someone a non-learner? Everyone is born with an intense drive to learn. Infants stretch their skills daily. Not just ordinary skills, but the most difficult tasks of a lifetime, like learning to walk and talk. They never decide it’s too hard or not worth the effort. Babies don’t worry about making mistakes or humiliating themselves. They walk, they fall, they get up. They just barge forward.
What could put an end to this exuberant learning?
The fixed mindset. As soon as children become able to evaluate themselves, some of them become afraid of challenges. They become afraid of not being smart. I have studied thousands of people from preschoolers on, and it’s breathtaking how many reject an opportunity to learn.”
― Carol S. DweckMindset: The New Psychology Of Success
Are you stuck in a fixed mindset?  
Are you fighting progress because you are afraid to fail?  
What challenges are you running away from?  

We often get stuck because we are hard wired with behavior patterns.  Re-wire your brain, go after something more important to you than quitting, than jumping off the wagon into unhealthy patterns.  You have control over them.  It's all about mindset!!
Don't be scared of the challenges that are in front of you, attack them head on, because every time you fail, you give yourself a chance to learn and to grow.
