“Whether you think you can, or think you can’t – you’re right” – Henry Ford

This is a belief that many people live by, and it all comes down to your mindset. If you believe you can do something or achieve a goal, often you will be successful. The opposite is also true. If you tell yourself, you can’t do something it can be a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Believing in yourself, and having confidence in your capability to do something, can often be the tipping point between success and failure. When it comes to exams, having a positive mindset before you sit the exam will help you feel at ease and more able to approach the exam effectively.

The webinar covers the following topics:

• Understanding Mindset – The growth & fixed mindset
• Appreciate neuroplasticity – The brain bit!
• How to develop a growth mindset
• Discover common thinking traps or automatic negative thoughts.
• Consider how to change thinking traps into positive prompts.
• Understand the connection between the growth mindset and goal setting.
• The growth mindset plan!
