LeBron James Is All About The Growth Mindset
Rather than sulking and being ashamed after missing two key free throws at the end of a recent loss in Houston, LeBron accepted the struggle as a necessary part of his improvement, his relentless quest to get better.
We strive to instill this attitude in our students: unafraid to fail and always being open to growth, especially learning from mistakes and struggles.
Ok, with all that said, "Go Spurs Go."
