❌ A fixed mindset person believes that basic abilities, intelligence, and talents are fixed traits and can not be changed.
✅ A growth mindset person understands that talents and abilities can be developed through practice time, good teaching, and persistence.
📖 Reading Carol Dweck’s Mindset: The New Psychology of Success was a huge eye-opener for me as both a teacher and performer. Our brains are capable of growing, but only if we allow ourselves to learn and become comfortable making mistakes.

If you’re asking yourself, “Do I have what it takes?” the answer is YES! Yes, you do.
🌈 Be ok with the learning process.
🌈 Give yourself permission to make mistakes without harmful self-talk.
👊🏻 I believe in you.
