Word of the Week: Growth Mindset is our Character Word of the Month for October. Having a growth mindset means understanding that intelligence can be developed.

A growth mindset is a belief that we can get smarter through hard work and practice. This means that struggling with something difficult doesn’t mean you’re not smart—it’s a chance to grow your intelligence. Growth mindset is all about trying hard, using good strategies, and getting the help you need.

Here are some quotes that are connected to understanding of a Growth Mindset:

  1. “Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed no hope at all.” Dale Carnegie
  2. “Great works are performed, not by strength, but by perseverance.” Samuel Johnson
  3. “It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.” Confucius
