This is also one of those character building moments. Not only do you build it in your own eyes, but also in the eyes of others. They admire you for it even though they may not tell you.

It has nothing to do with making a mistake.

I have experienced a lot, I mean a lot of failure in my life. However, it’s the risks we take that often lead to the most growth. The biggest failure is never even trying. I ran for president of the student body at my university. I ran for president of my fraternity, twice. Early on in my career, I seemed to never leave a job without being let go (for many reasons, such as not enough clients to sustain the staff levels, communication styles and fit with upper management, organizational restructuring, etc.) You name it, I have probably experienced it. This hasn’t stopped me. It can’t. Having student loans to pay and a family to support wouldn’t allow it. In all of that time, I have experienced a great deal of growth and self-discovery; much more than I think would have happened had I remained at my very first job in a bubble of comfort. Everything that happens to us offers us a chance to make a decision to cope with it. That’s where the true learning happens. I look forward to seeing your insights into this issue.

I interviewed her about two years ago: http://urj.org/learning/forparents/podcasts/dweck/ and recently wrote a piece showing what a growth mindset in a congregation looks like: http://jewishedlab.com/2013/01/08/a-growth-mindset-is-key-to-a-culture-of-learning-a-case-study/. Seriously, it’s the gift that keeps on giving. Once you start thinking about a growth mindset, you’ll see how it works and be able to identify a fixed mindset…of course people don’t have exclusively one or the other.
If you like the Power Poses idea, check out this Ted Talk. Watch to the end…it’s very inspiring! http://www.ted.com/talks/amy_cuddy_your_body_language_shapes_who_you_are.html
