Don’t tell people they are smart.

Tell them they tried hard.

This is especially important with children.

If you tell one that they’re so smart when they get something right, how will they feel when they mess something up?

They’ll think that they’re stupid.

But, if you praise them for trying hard. Then when they mess something up they’ll just try harder.

They’ll be more resilient.

Use the same trick on yourself. Don’t tell yourself that you’re stupid. Just that you need to try harder.
