You should not choose the mindset that you wrote about for your post. Instead, choose one of the mindsets that one of your peers wrote about. Select one of those mindsets and in addition to telling what that mindset is and how it is detrimental to success, focus on your own ideas about how that mindset has affected you individually.
In the first paper, you wrote a longer narrative telling how a fixed mindset affected you at a particular time. In this short essay, you will focus on two examples of how that OTHER mindset affected your success. The thesis will identify the other mindset and state a thesis about the effect that mindset has had on you. The body will present two paragraphs, a separate personal example being the focus of each paragraph. You will also have a conclusion.
This is a mixture of a cause-effect and an example pattern of development. The textbook tells you what examples are on p. 203. These examples are a result of this Other mindset. Cause and Effect is explained on pp. 208-9.
Aim for about 350 words of text.
