(From the article): We’re all capable of improving, regardless of what natural abilities we were born with or without. It’s important then to acknowledge our successes or failures and remind ourselves that they are a direct result of our own effort or lack thereof, not of factors outside our control.

 

It’s the difference between having a “fixed mindset” or a “growth mindset”. A “fixed mindset” assumes that our abilities can’t be changed in any meaningful way, and success or failure is the reinforcement of the traits we were “born” with. When we have a “growth mindset,” on the other hand, we see obstacles and challenges as opportunities for growth beyond our existing abilities.

 

These two mindsets spur a great deal of our behavior so it’s essential to recognize if you tend toward a fixed mindset and try to shift your thinking toward a growth mindset.

(From the article): Setting goals without knowing your purpose is a fruitless and unfulfilling business. Focusing on goals rather than purpose is epidemic in this world, and ignoring purpose altogether is quite common. So if goals stand in the way of the fulfillment of your purpose, they have to go, and they can go as they are not required.

Trust God! In times past grandma said " Don't let your right hand know what your left hand is doing" then later on wise older mother said " its nothing but to fail if you don't try" then another said " why sell your dreams to the devil when he ain't got enough money to by them but will take your dreams live them for you and invite you to an it's your dream not party"  there was a saying when a person was angry they would say " Ina tell you a piece. of my mind " then the older mothers would say " you better go some where an sot down and hush yo mouth because you ain't got a piece to spare" it's funny how things are  said but only those who know what the conversation was about and who with would truly understand what's being said. Sometimes it's not what's said that makes the difference because it is being done instead! God style!
