Biblical Wisdom/Growth Mindset Inventory/The Grit Survey

Biblical Wisdom/Growth Mindset Inventory/The Grit Survey

1. As I  begin my path toward finishing my college degree, I find myself hoping  for many things. I want to succeed, to complete this program and finally  obtain my bachelor’s degree. I want to move in this next chapter  towards where God wants me to be. I feel personally that so often what I  want and what God wants are at odds, and I hope that throughout this  course and what follows I can move in a direction that is better aligned  with God’s plan for me.

I think the goal of aligning myself with God’s will and discerning  where He wants me to go will take a lot of work. That coupled with the  demand on my time from family and work will also mean that time  management is so important. Strategically carving out time for time in  the word and meditation I think will help me achieve this goal. I also  have to be intentional about when I am going to make time for classwork.  As of right now, I am on hiatus from work until the beginning of July,  so I have lots of time to dedicate to classwork. But when work does  start up, I will be working 12 hour days and come home with just enough  time to eat and put the kids to bed and my school work time will take  place from 9 pm till midnight. This limited time in my day to work will  require me to be very strategic and intentional with my time. I believe  this is all doable, and I am very blessed to have a great support team  around me, but it will require a significant amount of drive on my part  and strength from God. I cannot say I am not nervous, but I take solace  in the words God said to Israel in Isaiah 41:10 “So do not fear, for I  am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen  you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

2.  Starting off this path, I hope to work through everything that gets in  my way to finishing. I put myself on the back burner so that I could  take care of my kids and once my children were all in school, I would go  back to work. Now, that time is coming, and I need to remind my self  when I feel like giving up or forgetting about it, that I WILL finish  this. I have a big picture goal for my life and this is just one of the  small steps to get to that big picture, so I am willing to do what it  takes to finish.

Growth Mindset Inventory

3.  On my mindset test I received a “mostly growth mindset”. I agreed with 1  fixed mindset and 8 growth mindset answers. I would agree with my  result from the test. I try my best to see the bright side of everything  in life. I love learning new things as well. I think the things I have  been through in my childhood and teenage years has helped me establish a  growth mindset. Having so many bad/sad moments growing up has made me  always try to find the positive in anything that I endure. I have failed  at life, adulthood, school, and even myself before. Mentally I’m aware  that things don’t always go as planned or as we want. Sometimes I beat  myself up over it for a while which is where that one fixed mindset  comes into play. The little voice on your shoulder telling you to fail.  We all have one of those but I try my best to not listen to it so that I  can continue to grow everyday.

4.   My  Mindset I wake up 80%  in good mood to go to work. Always in good mood  until someone like employee or a supervisor that  ruins it because they  don’t get there way or they don’t want to do it. Try to always have a  positive attitude because it reflects me, and my life everyday. I’m a  good coworker everyday who helps other coworkers, and always feel good  doing that because it reflects me and my life. My talents is getting my  hands dirty/think/try to help/be a leader those are my strengths.  Weekness I need to be more creative and have a good Mindset, and  solutions. Always have ideas but affriad to do it because I have fear of  failing, and failing the people around me. I need to challenge myself to bigger better things and mindset. In  Mrs. Dweck, quote “In a fixed mindset, people believe their basic  qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits.

The Grit Survey

5.  I so, agree with you that experiences change us. I can be working on  everything I need to, to reach my goal but sometimes you  experience things that make you rethink your decision and wonder if  that’s really what you need to accomplish that end goal. Or maybe even  changing your end goal completely.

6.  I received a score of 4.59 out of 5 on grit. This puts me higher than  95% of American adults in their recent study. I would have to agree with  the survey. I have overcome a lot of obstacles in my lifetime thus far.  I have always gotten myself back up off the ground and finished what I  needed to. I dropped out of college once before and yet I am here to  finish what I started. As a mother follow through is very important. My  parents never followed through with their words and never turned them  into actions. Maybe this is why I am so set on finishing and going the  furthest I can in life. Maybe it is who I was born as. I really do not  know the answer to this but I am glad I have a significant amount of  grit or I might not be where/who I am today.
