The Power of belief -- mindset and success | Eduardo Briceno | TEDxManhattanBeach

My Challenge to You

So what do you think is the key to success? Take 11 minutes and watch the video about the power of belief-- Mindset & Success. What do you think about the key to success now? How has this video directed your thinking? How is your mindset? Are you in a fixed mindset or a growth mindset? How do you know?

I know that I am asking several questions. I want you to take the time to process those questions. Only you will really know your true mindset. Growth vs Fixed mindset research is abound, all you have to do is use Google and read through the results.

For me the real question is how do you change mindsets? Think back to the Conscious Discipline discussion we had on the Early Release Day. We spoke at length about encouragement. We spoke about specific encouragement related to both behavior and academics. This is a growth mindset mentality. This approach will help students to develop a growth mindset mentality.

Here are the three things any of us can do to instill a Growth Mindset is ourselves and others:

  1. Recognize Growth Mindset is supported by Science
  2. Learn and Teach others about how to GROW and DEVELOP ABILITIES
  3. LISTEN for your FIXED MINDSET voice and RESPOND with a GROWTH MINDSET voice

Think. Achieve. Succeed.
