Why waste time proving over and over how great you are, when you could be getting better?
Why look for friends or partners who will just shore up your self-esteem instead of ones who will also challenge you to grow?
Why seek out the tried and true, instead of experiences that will stretch you?

“Stretching and sticking to it, is the hallmark of the growth mindset. To thrive during some of the most challenging times in life

~ Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dweck
