Unlike a fixed mindset, growth mindset lets you have a positive outlook on life. Instead of blaming others you see what you can do to make the situation better the next time. According to the article “Mindset” by Carol Dweck she states, “Even in the growth mindset, failure can be a painful experience. But it doesn’t define you. It’s a problem to be faced, dealt with, and learned from.” Therefore, Dweck explains that when a person is dealt with a problem, like a C+ as their current grade in school, they see what they could do to better it. Whether it is by studying, or even changing your routine, you will try to make that situation turn around and learn from your mistakes. An event in my life where I used a growth mindset was when I failed my second semester of algebra when I was a freshman in High School. Everybody in the class who failed was blaming the teacher and felt like they should just give up on Algebra all together. Of course I was upset but instead of moping around I did something about it. When I got algebra again for my sophomore year I got a tutor and did all my homework and payed attention during class. This resulted in me getting an 85 percent ass my overall grade and me passing my regents with an 83 percent. Instead of being like everybody else in the class and putting my self down, I saw what I was struggling in and fixed it. I wanted to pass, so I focused on that and got what I worked for. That is

I’ve learned in this unit, three universal characteristics of a hero. One characteristic is some type of special powers not necessarily things like super strength or Flying but hospitality and friendliness or the will to help others could be considered special powers or something even greater to save the day. Also, hero's lineage is often noble or linked to the gods meaning their family history is a heroic one. Lastly Hero's tending to be adventurous and strong they and often times are born this way.
“Gray animals peering from electric caves, faces with gray colorless eyes, gray tongues and gray thoughts looking out through the numb flesh of the face” (Bradbury 132). The people in Fahrenheit 451 are exactly as the protagonist, Montag, describes them: gray, animal, dehumanized and lifeless. Ray Bradbury has built a society in which people spend their days mindlessly watching television. Violence, bullying and murder are common, especially coming from school children, who spend their school days watching even more television. Montag is a fireman who burns books and slowly comes to understand the dehumanized and meaningless state that his society is in. Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 demonstrates how dehumanization can lead to a meaningless
Thomas Jefferson wrote, ''Determine never to be idle...It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.” In this quote Jefferson perfectly sums up life. Life and time should not be wasted by inactivity but instead should be spent with/on productivity. The purpose of life is to live and to be industrious. By constantly being active a person can accomplish many tasks and possibly goals. Being industrious and productive leads to performing well in life. Life has a time limit and therefore one should not waste it by being idle or unproductive.
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, growing up means to grow towards or arrive at full stature or physical or mental maturity. In To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, 3 children experience some growing up in Maycomb, Alabama during the 1930s, the Great Depression. This growing up is seen through the eyes of Scout Finch. She sees her brother Jem, grow up in responsibility. She sees her friend, Dill, grow up in courage. We see Scout grow up in understanding others. All the children encounter growing up in knowledge of racism. Racism is big in Maycomb, especially during the trial for Tom Robinson. Throughout To Kill a Mockingbird, growing up is an important theme shown through Scout, Jem, and Dill.

You can use a quote that uses “you.” Just say, George Bernard Shaw said, “Life isn’t about…”
Have you ever wondered why life was created and what your purpose is? Well, you probably have, you just don’t remember it. We ask ourselves a variety of questions every day. It might be a simple or hard question you are facing throughout the day, but the answer is the main thing you need to remember. The meaning of life is more than just a simple question like the others we ask ourselves. If you have read the book Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life by Wendy Mass then you would know not everyone has the same answer to that question. Everyone has different thoughts and answers, but Daniel Fink’s answer is the best solution to the problem. His answer is unique and very creative. He embraces his life and lives it to the fullest. Daniel Fink’s
Growth mindset is vital when completing a fitness related goal. Embracing challenges, such as climbing up a steep hill when thoughts such as ¨I can 't do it¨ or ¨this is impossible¨ are constantly running through your mind. Growth mindset plays in when you add the word ¨yet¨. When that happens, you realize that you 'll come out stronger on the other side of that hill. One person who has a growth mindset is eighteen year old Malala Yousafzai, who after getting shot in the face three times, is still pushing her women’s education rights advocacy in the Middle East. Because of people like Malala, more people are given the opportunity to accel in school, which leads to better

I am a Mexican woman. I have a big, round face, flat nose, and small, squinted eyes. My skin is light brown, an everlasting tan. And I have hair as unruly, and out of control, as a monkey hyped up on drugs. Since the day I started paying attention to the world around me, it has been ingrained into my mind that the only people who have a chance at success would look nothing like me. A woman. Colored heritage. And this combination made me the abomination. My presence was already the wrong path towards success and greatness. This is my chance to come in from the sidelines. To create something great, to be someone great. Even with my ‘disadvantages’. I will stay ahead of the game, to be able to reach the finish line of my life. A finish line full of wonderful things and great accomplishments, not just for myself but for those who have helped me along the way.
