From the 7 Mindsets website:
“The 7 Mindsets are based on a three year research effort that began with the simple question: What do the world’s happiest and most successful people have in common? In search of the answer, we studied many of the happiest and most successful people who’ve ever lived. We reviewed the most extensive and important studies on personal achievement ever conducted. And we personally interviewed over 400 leading experts, some of the most successful men and women of the 20th and 21st centuries. Our research revealed that the answer isn’t related to gender, ethnicity, or where they lived in the world. It had nothing to do with being raised in a loving home or a broken one. It didn’t matter if their families were rich, middle class, or impoverished. It wasn’t even connected to how far they advanced in school or the skills they acquired along the way. In fact, it turns out that the game-changing commonalities of happiness and success are based on how the world’s most successful people think. What emerged from our research was a set of seven mental habits foundational to an enriched life.”
“7 Mindsets are a comprehensive blueprint for happiness, meaning, and success, written in simple, powerful language to teach and activate success strategies for people to live the lives of their dreams.”
The 7 Mindsets are: 1. Everything is Possible, 2. Passion First, 3. We are Connected, 4. 100% Accountable, 5. Attitude of Gratitude, 6. Live to Give, 7. The Time is Now. The students at GFW Elementary are learning about a mindset each month. They have focused lessons on the mindset of the month, activities to help reinforce the mindset, and classroom discussion.
We’re huge believers in the value and benefits of social emotional learning, and would be happy to connect personally about your school’s specific situation. If you’d like more information about 7 Mindsets, please visit the 7 Mindsets website.
Each month the mindset is painted on the walls of our school:
