Growth Mindset

How important is “confidence” to someone’s success in learning something new?  It is great to be confident in who we are, what we can do, and how we can perform in different situations.  However, too great a reliance on confidence can promote a fixed mindset that makes us shy away from new challenges if we are not careful.  We can become too comfortable with confidence and have to realize there is a learning curve in new skill areas and although confidence may be lacking in a new task, skill set, or concept, it doesn’t mean it won’t return.

The 'I Make a Difference Award' was created by the Madeira City School Board to recognize the extraordinary contributions of people who regularly go beyond the expected.
