You can achieve anything with effort

I think a mindset change is needed. We should not have labels such as ‘a bad at math’ child, and then get left behind. Children should know that they can achieve anything with effort. They should not feel hopeless if they are bad at anything. 

A mind opening read at reddit:

I work in schools delivering growth mindset materials that are heavily backed up by my YouTube content. Schools in the UK are increasing promoting a “you can achieve anything with effort” mentality that is all based around a book called ‘Mindset’ by Carol Dweck.
I partnered with a council to deliver some talks to a number of schools and it went well. That later developed into a job.
Sometimes it’s hard to tell students to just “keep trying” or that their abilities are not pre-assigned but are malleable and can be improved. I offer a change of pace with videos, and basically, a live show. It’s super fun and I believe the students get something out of it. They are inspiring to me at least.
