The story of so many legends began with rejection. The one overriding force that pushed them to rise up was the unshakable belief behind their actions.
If we have to fulfill our potential we have to start thinking differently.
The way we understand our intelligence and abilities deeply impacts our success. Based on social science research and real life examples, Eduardo Briceño articulates how mindset, or the understanding of intelligence and abilities, is key. When students or adults see their abilities as fixed, whether they think they’re naturals or just not built for a certain domain, they avoid challenge and lose interest when things get hard. Conversely, when they understand that abilities are developed, they more readily adopt learning-oriented behaviors such as deliberate practice and grit that enable them to achieve their goals. But this belief is itself malleable, and there are clear actions we can all take to establish a growth mindset and enable success for our children, our peers and ourselves.
The theory of multiple intelligences is craftily explained in the following video. This envisages the idea that every one, including yourself is uniquely intelligent and thus it is your uniqueness as is your personality which is your greatest strength.
Success is not solely defined by money alone, it has several definitions, which most importantly is self defined and changes as we go through life. Having a fulfilled financial aspect of life yet a poor fulfillment in areas of health, relationships and contentment does not make one truly happy and thus not truly successful. When success is looked at holistically, and all of life’s aspects and not just finances are balanced, then one truly lives a life of success and happiness.
Passions simply refer to activities that you love doing, activities that pump you with joy, excitement, and energy. Passions can range from your love to help people, or your love for tackling challenging situations. Simply put, anything you love to do is a passion.
