Henning also writes about how this expectancy-value theory relates to motivation. Henning writes, “A student’s

" Passion is the drive for you to succeed as it is what pushes you through tough times and reminds you to continue moving forward even when life beats you down. Your self-interest reminds you of the achievements that you could make and will make if you continue to strive for success.

After reading the book Mindset by Carol Dweck, I realized that I need to improve on my fixed mindset in a few different areas in order to be the best person I can be. According to Dweck, a “fixed mindset makes you concerned with how you will be judged, the growth mindset makes you concerned with improving” (13). Carol Dweck discusses the two different mindsets and the impact that having a fixed mindset has on individuals in the long run. In order to grow, learn and improve, I need to accept failure, be more confident in myself, and develop better study habits.
