Do you feel like there’s no hope in life? And that you’re obliged to work for 40+ years to finally retire one day?
Or the opposite – that life is only for fun at weekends, partying like there’s no tomorrow, taking drugs, drinking liters of alcohol, and then suffering the rest of the week?
Neither of these kinds of thinking is right.
There’s the 3rd way of the growth mindset, of striving to get better. You just need the right people around you to guide you and enforce that kind of mindset in you.
