Growth Mindset

“I can’t draw!” said Alice. “I can’t draw like Liam can’t run.”

Liam doesn’t seem bothered, but I don’t feel like I can let this one go.

“Try not to say can’t, Alice. You can draw a circle, put eyes on it and a stripe at the bottom. Hey presto – you’ve drawn a face.”

“Liam really can’t run though.”

“I bet I can still beat you in a race,” Liam crows.

“Of course you can. You have wheels.”

“But one day, I’m going to run.”

Alice smiled. “I want to be a drawer when I grow up.”
