Told you I’d be back to tell you about my pottery activity. I know you waited, loading, refreshing…I know. Admit it! No? Like NO? Like YOU DONT CARE?!?!

C’monnnnnn! I know you do! Anyways, here’s what  we have on the menu today. 

So, after implementing meditation in my daily routine, the second thing I did was including two weekly activities with the single role of getting me out of my work routine.  I don’t know if I got to tell you – probably not, since in the last months I focused more on social media than on the blog – but a few moths ago I moved with my home in the same building with #TheMoffice. So basically now I have two apartments in the same building, one for my office, one for my home. Which for me – an ambivert – is basically HEAVEN: my home to work commute is literally 10 meters long. No traffic, no people, working in my pyjamas and being able to run home every time I have a hour of. With one minor fault- well, my psychologist says it’s not Minor – the routine!

When it comes to success, it’s easy to think that people blessed with brains will inevitably leave the rest of us in the dust. But new research from Stanford University will change your mind (and your attitude).

Psychologist Carol Dweck has spent her entire career studying attitude and performance, and her latest study shows that your attitude is a better predictor of your success than your IQ. She found that people’s core attitudes fall into one of two categories: a fixed mindset or a growth mindset.

With a fixed mindset, you believe that you are who you are and you cannot change. This creates problems when you’re challenged because anything that appears to be more than you can handle is bound to make you feel hopeless and overwhelmed.

People with a growth mindset believe that they can improve with effort. They outperform those with a fixed mindset, even when they have a lower IQ, because they embrace challenges, treating them as opportunities to learn something new.

Common sense would suggest that having ability, like being smart, inspires confidence. It does, but only while the going is easy. The deciding factor in life is how you handle setbacks and challenges. People with a growth mindset welcome setbacks with open arms.

People with a growth mindset are empowered, and empowered people know there is no such thing as a truly perfect moment to move forward. So why wait for one? Taking action turns all your worry and concern about failure into positive, focused energy.

 

People with a growth mindset know they will fail from time to time, but they never let that keep them from expecting results. Expecting results keeps you motivated and feeds the cycle of empowerment. After all, if you don’t think you’re going to succeed, then why bother?

 

So now you understand why taking up pottery classes is something which challenges me and also makes me feel calmer, balanced and more centered? Once we understand that change is the only constant in our lives and adapt to it, we’ll be free!
