Nonetheless, the mentality that a person retains will influence almost every aspect of their lives, especially their future success, so that raises the question of whether they want to constantly improve, or permanently stay in the position that they are currently in. In order to find out which mindset is more beneficial, a thorough comparison between the advantages and disadvantages of each mindset is crucial. For example, the fixed mindset provides a direction to follow based on one’s abilities, however, it creates an urgency for constant validation, a tiresome recovery from failure, and it generates a habit of running away from problems in fear that their weaknesses will be revealed. On the other hand, promoting growth mindsets could cause a separation between those with fixed and growth attitudes, but it also focuses on the importance of applying a lot of effort, accepting change, and thriving on challenges. Clearly, the growth mindset is far more advantageous than the fixed mindset since it provides a greater amount of perennial benefits.
Being successful at Chemawa is extremely important. Part of being successful is finding motivation, which helps us achieve what we need to achieve. The article “Steps to Take in Middle School that will Help You Succeed” by Anna Tower from Demand Media states, “Students who believe they can accomplish a task are more likely to do well in school.” Tower later goes on to explain that if you have a high interest in your learning, you’ll be more likely to succeed and create a strong work ethic. I know that having self motivation helps you get work done and be more confident with your answers and performances. However, to have motivation you need to have a strong growth mindset.
Opportunity brings desires and expectations in people’s life. However, never-ending opportunities or choices not only bring frustration in people’s lives but also make them saddened for prolong period. In “The Paradox of Choice” by Barry Schwartz argue that more is less, for to have more doesn’t mean it will meet people expectations. Every little thing is developing so vastly in today’s time, and people are running behind to achieve it. However, they don’t understand the fact that they are putting themselves in a pressure, where they have to make a decision.
Having too much pride can result failure in life, destroy egos because of overconfidence in what one thinks is right. If the desire is too strong for something that is out of reach, then giving up all will for one thing means defeat. The future may not be the one that people have all dreamed off, but they can achieve the goal that they desire by setting small, achievable checkpoints, therefore, feeling joyful and satisfied. If one is proud, he/she is upset at every slight. It is hard to realize that one’s idea might be dreadful.
We should not be prideful thinkers because it will not benefit anybody in any way, shape, or form. Pride is an endless cycle of the way people think of each other and themselves. People who are prideful will always try to make themselves look better than everyone around them, but on the inside there is fear and doubt of what they think others will think about them. When those that get made fun of will have to make a choice, they will stand up to it or will feel bad about themselves. And the people who take it in will start to use pride to make them look better about themselves.
Perhaps that difference is actually a lack of underlying trust in your relationship. For example, instead of looking past your disagreements like George and Lennie, you hold on to them and carry them around with you like a chip on your shoulder. In hindsight these pointless arguments can greatly affect your relationship because you won’t trust each other as much as you should be able too. What you could learn from George and Lennie is sometimes you have to have a short memory. Those small arguments may seem big in the moment, but in the end they will not matter.
The Power Of Knowledge People can rely on literacy and social awareness to help them be better aware and more thoughtful. But when people have neither of these skills it can harm the view they have on their surroundings. Fahrenheit 451 is an example of what would happen if social awareness and literacy were looked down on. In the society where the story takes place in not many are socially aware or can read. This lack of awareness and literacy drives people to take great lengths for their beliefs and wants, this is a problem because they don't think about the consequences their actions will have.
The articles, “Dear Grads Don’t ‘Do What You Love’” and “Do What You Love and Starve?” explain that when one does what they love as an occupation, they will not prosper economically. This is because doing what one loves is often a tough labor market or a mental strain; causing one’s energy to drain. Carl McCoy’s article is short and sweet when explaining why one should not follow their dreams in certain fields. He suggests to the reader that one should go into a job that is performed with a sense of purpose, a sense that ‘love’ does not uphold. This is included because McCoy would like to see more people in fields like medical, education, and public safety.
Will Ferrell once said “Immature is a word boring people use to describe fun people.” This quote is trying to say that to be fun you need to be immature, which is not the case. Sometimes immaturity is just immaturity. We have to learn from this immaturity to become a greater person. If we never learn from our mistakes, we can not grow as a person and we will just keep repeating the same mistakes. We grow and mature as life goes on, some people just take a little longer than others.
I know that having a future means that I will move forward in time, but the rest is unknown. It’s a good thing, though, because that way, the mystery serves as motivation for me to work harder, even if it’s just to see what my life will turn out to be. I see the best part of having a future is just knowing that you can reach higher and bigger goals in life, meet new people, acquire more information, etc. A “future” is a little ambiguous to me. Just thinking about it, however, gets me hyped up because I already have high hopes for myself!
