Carol Dweck: The Power of YET

Carol Dweck: The power of believing that you can improve | Talk Video | TED.com.

We often hear people refer to the power of Now, but have you ever heard about the power of YET? In this powerful TedTalk, Dr. Carol Dweck, one of the foremost researchers in educational psychology, discusses how to provide children with the opportunity to succeed through the power and process of YET.

We owe it to all of our children to give them the skills that will empower them to solve problems, any problems. Problem solving skills and perseverence will be the most highly sought after skills in the near distant future when these children inherit a world filled with challenges not of their making.

If you are a parent, teacher, or influencer, I urge you to watch this short clip so you can understand how simple it is to transform learning and students so all of them can succeed!

7 Pieces of Job Advice

One of the greatest moments in my life was becoming the first college graduate in my family.

But once the celebrations are over, if you don’t have any current job opportunities lined up, you might find this blog on 7 Pieces of Job Advice helpful.

Today’s job market is very challenging, so you need to use different job search strategies. These include:

  • Building an online presence by creating a LinkedIn profile and using social media professionally
  • Creating a website to promote your personal brand
  • Networking through meetup.com

Also, be sure to stay in touch with your classmates and continue to collaborate with others as often as possible!

Skills for SUCCESS: Love what you do!

Can you honestly say you spend most of your time doing things you LOVE to do?

I do!

I work as a Learner Support Specialist for Argosy University. My “job” is helping our students succeed. Outside of the workplace, I’m always inspiring friends and family to be the best they can be by living a full life. This is what happens when you discover and tap into your true purpose.

In the days, weeks, and months to come, I will be sharing many of the skills and strategies that have been most effective in helping my students, friends, and family members for reaching their potential.

I hope you will join this journey and learn to tap into your own potential. Pop back often to see what information, resources, skills, and strategies intrigue you. Or, leave a comment if you have a question or suggestion!

Bon voyage!
