In 2013 after spending the weekend partying at a music festival, drinking copious amounts of booze, consuming drugs, and getting hardly any sleep, I started to get little dots of dry red skin on my legs.

As the months went on, my partying and lifestyle went to a whole new level. The little red dots started showing up everywhere on my body. My legs, my arms, my face, my whole body was covered in these little red dots.

Naturally, the first thing I did was google ‘red dry skin dots on my body’. Self-prescribed doctor Danielle had everything under the sun!

Keep in mind at this point in my life I was just a motivated, rah-rah, positive person. I didn’t really understand the whole mindset, our spirit self, and what was really going on.

After going to the walk-in clinic, the verdict was “I am not sure what you have but take...

The Growth Mindset + Everything You Need To Know

Growth Mindset vs Fixed Mindset are terms coined to describe the underlying beliefs people have about learning and intelligence.
 
Growth Mindset - through hard work, good strategies, and input from others their talents can be developed.
 
Fixed Mindset - the belief that intelligence is a fixed trait and is set in stone at birth.
 
For many of us adults and young adults, we were not taught mindset growth techniques in school, whereas nowadays they are implementing growth mindset strategies at the early education level. While many people will say that they cannot change their fixed mindset, research and 'success' says otherwise.

The longer we continue to ignore our mindset and the state that it is in, the longer we will continue to live in our current reality...

Recognizing the Personal Standards You Live By
 
Your personal standards are reflected in how you treat yourself, and also in how you treat other people. They are also reflected in how you expect to be treated by other people.
