The job of becoming the best version of you is one you have to work at every day of your life. A growth mindset keeps a positive focus on change and renewal, helping you continue to strive to learn and change over time.

Sometimes, we fear only those things we do not understand, so embracing it takes away the power fear holds over you.

Vowing to become more resilient, then actively working toward that goal, can allow you to become more self-confident and brave. Resiliency helps you feel confident to continue, even after a failure, as well.
