How not to talk to your kids...

  • Don't tell them they are smart... tell them they worked hard.
  • Don't praise them for being good at something... tell them they are getting better through practice.
  • Don't tell them they are bad at something... tell them how to do it right.

I see a TON of me in this tremendous article. I recognise how my hesitency NOW in my professional life is directly related to how I think internally that it should be easy for me, so when it isn't something feels wrong.
