If parents want to give their children a gift, the best thing they can do is to teach their children to love challenges, be intrigued by mistakes, enjoy effort, and keep on learning. That way, their children don’t have to be slaves of praise. They will have a lifelong way to build and repair their own confidence.
— Carol S. Dweck

Pawns can grow. They aren't very fast and they aren't very strong, but if a pawn reaches the other side of the board, it turns into a stronger piece. We grow with persistence and patience. Like pawns, we move towards growth one move at a time. We bring energy to challenges and accept blunders with a sense of humor and a willingness to learn.
