The Growth Mindset with Christina Srour

In this episode Garett talks to long time CKO Kickboxing Seattle member Christina Srour about the idea of the growth mindset. The growth mindset is based on work by Dr. Carol Dweck who coined the terms “fixed mindset” and “growth mindset” to describe the underlying beliefs people have about learning and intelligence. This idea is being applied to school age children, which is how Christina came across the idea. This conversation is interesting.

Consistency Rant with Apology

On Friday October 7th, 2016 I made a rant video about Consistency. This video did not come out as intended. You can see the video below:

After posting this video I realized I got caught up in the moment and I probably should not have told people to quit or give up. This gets addressed in the apology video shown below:

While my intention was never to come across as mean or negative in the original video, the theme of the video remains the same. And that theme is to inspire or motivate people to make time for themselves. Making time for you own self-improvement might be the most import investment you will ever make.  While the original consistency video may not be a “home run” I am not giving up! So the motivation videos, podcast, and blogs will continue, I will just work on choosing my words better.

Stay Strong my Friends!
