Mindset is the key to success in academics. Research and practice has shown time and again that mindset separates students more than any other factor. Yet, we hardly ever train it.
Think about it... How often do you intentionally train your mindset? How many hours per week do you work on your confidence, steadily increase your motivation, sharpen your goal setting, or ramp up your resilience?
How often do you work on content knowledge, practicing math problems or reading articles?
The difference is clear for so many students. We spend countless hours working through content with little to no thought about our mindset, which determines our ability to retain and use that content knowledge!
