Growth-Mindset, a catch phrase during these last few years, is such a valuable phrase for us who are determined to grow and evolve and recover so we can thrive. Abuse and Trauma past be damned, we will live our lives with vigor, passion, love, dynamic …we hope. This article illustrates the multidimensional ways to look at our baseline progress and decide where we need to focus any efforts for our next change, our next growth. It’s worth contemplating these dimensions. Whether we have a history of abuse or trauma or not, we would still aim to grow… But how would you direct your next arena of progress? Let me know.
