We’re not there YET! In her book, Mindset, Carol Dweck describes a different way of thinking than most people often think. She encourages people who maybe cannot do something, to not get down on themselves, but to tell themselves, I cannot do this YET!
This fosters the growth mindset. We challenge you to think of three sentences you could add “YET” to. How does it make you feel? We also challenge you to encourage your kids to try out “I can’t do it, yet!” rather than simply saying “I can’t do it.” And in the words of Daniel Tiger, “Keeping trying, you’ll get better!”
Remember that each week of the 5-Day challenge we will be sending out another part of the challenge – to get the full challenge, visit our friends at BIGLIFEJOURNAL.COM. And tag us with your photos on Instagram @wisefamilies or comment on our Facebook page Wise Families! We would love to hear if your kids can embrace the power of YET?!
Maybe not yet, but soon!
Until next week, Be Wise!
