YES YES YES YES YES YES. I've been working very hard lately on letting go of all expectations.... I've come to the conclusion that if you rely on someone else, for absolutely anything, you will get hurt. Not always and not in every case, but it will happen. Being physically and mentally self-reliant is the key to happiness, because it keeps away disappointment.
Thought this would be great to post within the classroom as growth mindset rules to demonstrate to students that it is more important to grow for the future and understand concepts oppose to solely working to get a grade on a test and forgetting the information afterwards. This may be difficult for students to understand in younger grades but it is important for an educator to create a positive, growth mindset classroom where students are encouraged to take chances and strive for success.
