“Plants are more courageous than almost all human beings: an orange tree would rather die than produce lemons, whereas instead of dying the average person would rather be someone they are not.” ― Mokokoma Mokhonoana
The subject of GRIT (Passion and Perseverance) and GROWTH MINDSET (Self-theory or Self-perception we have about ourselves) came up this week in a staff meeting and it reminded me of when I first heard of these two concepts a couple of years ago. It also recalled for me some of the work I do coaching my clients and how having big dreams (bigger than our fears) are important. It also brought back my prosecutorial style of questioning, when I implore my clients to describe what they want. All of this has mattered to some of my most successful clients, including my first three, my kids. All of this is important in living the life God has planned for you. After all, these ideas are all biblical!
