The Beautiful Summer Morning 5-Day Challenge Becoming a Bigger Thinker: Day 4

Day 4 Cultivating A Growth Mindset

Graphic for 5-day Challenge Becoming a Bigger Thinker Day 4

Here is a simple lesson that explains how growth is essential to thinking and achieving big things.


Look at your life. What skills and beliefs do you currently possess? They have created your “right now” experience. Now, think about what you want for your life that you don’t already have. Why don’t you have these things?


If desire were enough, we would all be fulfilled and happy. You must grow your beliefs and abilities to receive more in life than you have. Otherwise, you will never move above your present reality.


If you don’t consistently lift heavier weights, you’ll never become stronger than you are. The same is true with your mind. Believe that your thinking skills and abilities can grow, and you will see that a bigger life is truly possible. That is the basis of a growth mindset.



Believe that it’s okay if you don’t currently have the tools, resources, and opportunities to achieve your dreams. You can get them. You can grow in whatever way is needed to live your dreams. Don’t see failures or mistakes as holding you back. They are just experiences that reveal your growth potential.


You don’t have to go back to school to acquire this new skill though local colleges and universities now offer many one-offer course to fill your needs. However, for me, the biggest university ever assemble is available to you from your computer keyboard or even your smart phone.


I contend that you can design your own curriculum from the many online learning platforms. My personal favorite and it cost nothing to use is YouTube.


Type in the skill you want to learn browse through the results and save the one that look most appealing to you.


I can’t tell you how much this has been a source of constant growth and expansion for me personally. Lifelong learning is critical for growth and expansion like taking this 5-Day Becoming a Bigger Learner Challenge.
