KEEP IT GOING
With about one more week to go, I can say these vacations have been rather productive in accomplishing my goals. As mentioned before, the habit I posed for myself was to practice a new sport a few times a week, and I can say the habit has been made. I have been going to gymnastics classes three times a week since I got home from Florida. I can truly feel my body changing in aspects of flexibility, which makes me want to keep it going! Even though the vacations are about to be over, and I have no actual obligation to proceed, have found true passion in this sport and want to continue practicing through the rest of the year.
Through the course of the making of the habit I encountered some issues, for example I was delayed in the making of this routine since I left Lima for a week. Still, I managed to continue thoroughly when I got back. Besides this slight layback, I was able to cultivate this habit and make this activity grow within me. All the time spent saying I wasn't made for sports, I was wrong. It wasn't that sports weren't in my nature, It was the fact that my fixed mindset didn't allow me to pursue a passion for these activities, therefore I can now say if I put myself to accomplish something, with effort I will achieve it.

This has certainly been an important experiences that has bolstered your self- confidence and allowed you to look at challenges from a different perspective. What once was unattainable (sports) has now become possible with effort and hard work. So now what comes next? Are there any areas where you still have a fixed mindset? How can this experience help you grow in those other areas as well?

I agree, this has in fact been a rewarding experience, now knowing that learning and growing has no barriers, I can take this and apply it to other areas. I have always thought mathematics weren't for me, however now I may not be so sure. My goal for next year is to prove myself wrong once again, and strive for mathematical greatness!
