Positive thinking is the key to a growth mindset. According to psychologist, Carol Dweck, " Students who embrace growth mindsets—the belief that they can learn more or become smarter if they work hard and persevere—may learn more, learn it more quickly, and view challenges and failures as opportunities to improve their learning and skills." A growth mindset is a critical skill for students to develop and implement to help succeed in school.
