Our motivational TED video this week is that of Carol Dweck speaking on The Power of Believing That You Can Improve.
It is the power of yet. The power that tells you that you are on a learning curve and you can improve.
Sometimes, we are just too hard on ourselves. The power of yet does not discourage you from learning but keeps you on a growth mindset in a way that sees failure as stepping stones.
Carol Dweck in her talk describes two ways to think about a problem that is hard for you to solve:
1. Are you not smart enough to solve it?
2. Have you just not solved it yet?
