This post discusses a recent article that was published by the Journal of Consumer Science. The short hand version is that there is a significant difference in saying "I don't" than "I can't."

Why? "Your words help to frame your sense of empowerment and control [and the] words that you use create a feedback loop in your brain that impacts your future behaviors."

As I read this post I thought about Carol Dweck's work on growth mindset. How can we use this new knowledge to help our students?
