Growth mindset is kind of a buzz word lately. I’m all in when it comes to self help or anything that will inspire me to be a better version of myself. This growth mindset idea really struck a nerve in me because it’s something I struggle with and I see popping up in my own kids. These growth mindset quotes are just little snippets I like to remember to keep myself looking forward!
I’m not good at trying new things. Let me rephrase that; I’m not good at trying new things in front of other people. I love learning new things but I prefer time to process and practice them without an audience. I hate being the center of attention and being at the center of an audience because I’m failing at something is something I try to avoid at all costs.

I’ve been reading Only Love Today by one of my favorite mom authors, Rachel Macy Stafford. (I have given several copies of this book by the same author as a gift~ a definite fave!)
One thing I love about Only Love Today is the format. There is a short reading each day, no dates included. You can jump in anywhere, at any time of year. While I used to devour stacks of books these short daily readings are sometimes all I can manage these days. While this is book isn’t specifically about a growth mindset it really speaks to me about letting go of the past and moving forward with love and positivity, towards my family and myself.
“Today matters more than yesterday.” -Rachel Macy Stafford
Improvement comes in baby steps, right? I know who I am and I love the idea that everyday I can improve a little something each day while not beating myself up for yesterday. Just because yesterday I was the “teacher monster” (a term coined by one of my favorite children) doesn’t mean I can’t be a better listener today.
Putting myself out there…
This growth mindset idea has inspired me to put myself out there in some new ways. Blogging is a huge risk for me. I’m literally putting myself out in the world in writing. I’m pretty adept at holding people at arms length but when I’m behind a computer keyboard that changes.
Making the decision to pull our kids from public school and homeschool them was a huge risk. Homeschooling was a decision with the potential to affect our entire family, for better or worse.
If teaching four kids every day doesn’t require a little stretching of the grey matter I don’t know what does! My kids and I get to learn together everyday~ how cool is that?!?
I want my kids to see me trying new things, taking risks, believing in myself! I love the idea that what you know, what you can do, and what you’re capable of can change at anytime! No matter your age this is exciting news, right?
Growth Mindset Quotes
Being a creative mind my “filing/planning system” consists of a pretty notebook jammed full of scraps of paper and post it notes. I’ve got pages of quotes that I stumbled upon and want to remember. Lots of these fall under the growth mindset category because this idea really speaks to me.
I want to pass some of this positive energy on to you, and maybe hang it on my wall as well. I’ve translated my post it notes into some fun growth mindset quotes printables to inspire you and your family.
