What are the 7 Mindsets?

Our 7 Mindsets shirts have been ordered, we hope to have them to all students prior to Thanksgiving Break! The essence behind having the shirts is to create an identity within each grade level - have students/staff wear these shirts on Mindset Monday's, Future Field Trips, Field Days and even grade level assemblies! Our current mindset we are focusing on is -"We Are Connected" - Ask your child what it means to be connected, see parent newsletter below!

1. Everything is Possible - Current Mindset of Focus (See Parent Newsletter Below)
Dream big, embrace creativity and expect results

Everything is Possible provides an understanding that we are all capable of living extraordinary lives. We learn that everything that exists was once an idea until someone believed it was possible and made it a reality. Embracing this principle will allow you to envision a wonderful life, expect greatness, and effectively execute the process of making your dreams come true.

2. Passion First
Pursue your authentic talents and deepest interests

Passion First teaches that we are each a unique expression of human existence and that our lives should be focused on finding our unique genius and sharing it with the world to the maximum extent possible. You will learn to make your dreams authentic, and of such critical importance that you'll find the fuel to overcome the obstacles you're certain to face along the way.

3. We Are Connected
Explore the synergies in all relationships and learn to empower one another

We Are Connected teaches us to understand that everyone who comes into our lives can assist us in living our dreams. By applying this mindset, you will learn to constantly explore synergies with others, embrace diversity, and relish competition that will help you maximize your potential with and through others.

4. 100% Accountable
Choose to be responsible for your own happiness and success

100% Accountable teaches that you are not a victim of your past, your future is not predetermined, and your life is what you choose it to be from this moment forward. With a focus on recognizing fears and excuses, this mindset allows you to break down barriers, free your mind, and focus your energy to take critical steps toward accomplishing your goals.

5. Attitude of Gratitude
Seek positives from every experience and be thankful for all you have

An attitude of Gratitude teaches that you can choose the positives or the negatives in your life as the foundation on which to build your future. Choose the positives, and you're on your way toward extraordinary success; choose the negatives, and you will likely start (or continue) a downward spiral.

6. Live to Give
Inspire and serve others while maximizing your potential

Live to Give teaches that abundance in one’s life is a cycle. To receive love, respect, and financial security, one must first learn to give those things. This mindset also teaches that the greatest gift you can ever give is to find and leverage your unique genius to maximize your positive impact on the world, knowing that good things will be returned to you in kind.

7. The Time is Now
Harness the power of this moment, and take purposeful action today

The Time is Now teaches that all your power exists in the moment. You cannot change the past and the future hasn't happened, so the only thing to do is take purposeful action now in order to create the ultimate life of your dreams.
