Today’s message is especially dedicated to all the great students at Kean University.
So here I am in the computer lab in the library at Kean University. I am very excited. Excited because I love libraries – I love learning. Just being around books makes me happy.
Do you love learning?
Learning about your sport?
Your major in college?
Your musical instrument?
Carol Dweck at Stanford University talks about fixed and growth mindsets. She says that if you have a fixed mindset, you think that there is only so much you can learn and only so good you can get.
A growth mindset means that you feel that there is NO limit as to how much you can learn and that your potential is endless.
Guess what I believe in?
Most people just learn enough to get by. The great ones keep on learning.
So, do you want to just get by, or do you want to become great?
It’s up to you.
“Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.”
-Pope John XXIII
