December 2016 - Celebrate Your Successes

It is always important to take time to celebrate each success in your goal setting process, from your mini-goals all the way up to your long-term goals.

By taking time to celebrate every success, no matter how big or small, it will build your confidence and make it easier to keep pushing to reach those large-scale future goals. Not to mention, a celebration can give you closure on goals you’ve been working toward for a while, provide encouragement to continue and make every success even more worthwhile.

So now that you’ve accomplished that goal, are you ready to celebrate? Your celebration doesn’t have to be a big deal. It can be something you do alone or something you share with others. It just has to make you feel good and help you enjoy your accomplishment.

The growth of a ​person, ​animal, or ​plant is ​its ​process of ​increasing in ​size, an ​increase in the ​size or the ​importance of something.

iWhat is the Growth Mindset? In a fixed mindset, people believe that their basic abilities, their intelligence, their talents, are just fixed traits. They have a certain amount and that’s that, and then their goal becomes to look smart all the time and never look dumb. In a growth mindset, people understand that their talents and abilities can be developed through effort, good teaching and persistence. They don’t necessarily think that everyone’s the same or anyone can be Einstein, but they that believe everyone can get smarter if they work at it.

Growth Mindset definition of failure – It’s not a failure if you try something and it didn’t work out.    It is only a failure if you are too scared to try, or if you try, fail, and then give up afterwards.  A person with a “Growth Mindset” is someone who is willing to face challenges, is okay with making mistakes, and chooses to learn from those mistakes to keep going.
