There are many things we can say to ourselves when don’t succeed. We can beat ourselves up, our self talk can bring us down. But, when times get tough or we are struggling to succeed, the best thing we can do is tell ourselves, Not Yet!
A fixed mindset (Carol Dwerk) can be a danger when we want to change. Believing that everyone has predestined abilities and predestined deficiencies could cause us to set out on a challenge or hinder our journey. A growth mindset, on the other hand, is one which allows for trial and error, willingness and the want to change, and perseverance. This is the Not Yet! mindset.
If today you don’t succeed, keep on going, you may just not be there yet! If you are working towards a goal and your not getting their fast enough, you are just not there YET! Anything worth having is worth working for. It just might not be your time, YET!
