The Power of Yet

I’m not good at this, YET.

I can’t get there, YET.

This one simple word actually encapsulates the growth mindset perfectly.

It acknowledges that there is still time to cultivate skills.

That there’s a developmental process at work.

That through effort and hard work, one day in the future, with continued effort, we can in fact improve.

A fun skill to build: listen for when people can apply YET to the end of their limiting story or belief. Suggest YET and watch their reaction. Watch how it shifts their being and thinking.
