<snip> .... it annoys me when students tell me oh I can't do that I'm not talented like you! Or they say I can't do that because I know I'm not talented, or creative, or artistic, etc. I ask them why they say that and it usually goes back to school when someone told them at some point they weren't... and unfortunately they believed them and it stuck with them their whole life. <snip>
This is a good time to plug the book Mindset by Carol Dweck. Great read about the difference between thinking that you/others have a given set of abilities/talent/intelligence etc (fixed mindset) vs the mindset that you/others can always improve (growth mindset).
