As cliché as they may be, inspirational quotes can go a long way in helping to change mind set when heard often enough.
They are the little reminders which cheer you on to keep going, when everything else inside of yourself is trying to tear you down and make you stop.
Right now, the internet is flooded with a wave of information set to help children develop a positive growth mind set. And I can see the value in this.
How our children see their own capabilities can have a huge impact on what they actually go out and achieve. And so it is important to help them develop an inner self belief, which tells them that they can reach sucess, if they don't give up inshaAllah.
So many kids write themselves off as failures, because they don't understand something straight away, or they made mistakes, or something they are working on isn't perfect.
They see the mountainous challenge in front of them, and don't believe they can ever climb over it.
Its that little niggling inner voice of self sabotage that we want to silence inshaAllah.
They need to know, sucess doesn't occur by random chance to some people. Rather, those who are successful in their game have worked hard, made mistakes, and kept going to get to the top.
