I can relate to this on an academic level because I am not really the best at math. I have felt very dumb and not capable of getting the right answer in math classes because my mom is very good at math and does not understand why I cannot understand it. I have had to learn to cope with it by telling myself that I will eventually get it correct I just haven't gotten there yet and that seems what Carol Dweck says in her talk. You will get it right, you're just not there yet.
I am excited to apply growth mindset to all of my classes. I am taking some that I am excited to take and I am readily motivated to get work done and do well, but my experience in college is that they do not always work out that way. I am also retaking a class that I did not do well on in the past and I think by even retaking this that I am using growth mindset by saying, "I did not do as well as I can in this class yet".
The picture I chose is a logo that says,"Are we there yet?" I felt this is appropriate because I don't feel like I am where I should be yet. I personally feel like there is always room to grow and improve upon yourself. If you ask yourself,"am I there yet?" and you can answer yes, then congrats to you. However, I am a fan of growth and change and I personally hope I can never in this life answer "yes" to the question,"are we there yet?"
