Take risks and overcome obstacles.

This cat was inspired by a useful article on feedback: Overcoming The Fear Of Feedback. The cat picture is not really about feedback (that's hard to show with cats!), but the article is definitely worth reading; I've marked in bold the part that inspired the meme:
Even when receiving mostly positive feedback, it tends to be the constructive feedback that we recall most acutely. [...] When we associate abilities with a part of our identity, receiving constructive criticism can feel more like a personal attack. People with growth mindsets, on the other hand, are more likely to take risks and overcome obstacles by seeing failure as a signal to try harder, rather than time to give up. [...] When you start placing blame on others for the feedback you receive, this is your fixed mindset speaking. Once you recognize this voice you can begin counteracting it and responding with a growth mindset.
