Educators might already be familiar with this initiative. To sum it up briefly, the research covers the idea of a "fixed mindset" vs. a "growth mindset." Someone with a growth mindset believes they can improve their abilities by trying hard, and not giving up if something is challenging. Those with a fixed mindset believes they were born with a set ability that they cannot change.

It is something that we are starting to implement at a large scale in the community college where I teach. I suspect the ideas presented here could easily be adapted in the dojo/dojang (I've made several personal connections regarding how I approach learning taekwondo!) In fact, it probably wouldn't hurt for the kids to hear it from someone other than their school teachers!

There's some good stuff here, and it's at no cost. Just a thought.

I think its always important to tell others that no matter what they are doing, they can get better at it. Its important to motivate others in this way.

I wholeheartedly agree!!

What kind of CI would I be if I didn't motivate my Student Body that they can, and will get better at it on a daily basis?!?! With every failure, comes immeasurable success on and off the floor, and every success overshadows that failure as though it hadn't occurred as only a learning opportunity.

7 times down; 8 times up!!

This is why I don't have my daughter practice her katas with out my supervision. Or her mother's after I have helped her understand what to look for. I am afraid the grandmothers would just praise without knowing what they were looking at.
