Expanding The Mind
The Growth Mindset Way
Like many, I was pushed to work hard from a young age to make sure I passed those exams.
Looking back, I realise instead of being praised for the effort I put in, my success was entirely
measured by the grades I achieved. My experience of rewarding achievement is typical, both
as a student and as an educator. This stems from a system where many schools are driven by
results-orientated approaches to measuring success. In turn, this is instilled in parents further
perpetuating the problem of setting limits on achievement.
