Growth Mindset (Part 5)

Summary

Stanford psychologist Dr. Carol Dweck and author of “Mindset: The New Psychology of Success” explains how there are two types of mindsets: growth and fixed mindset.

A growth mindset embraces challenges and views failure not as evidence of unintelligence but as an opportunity for growth. While a fixed mindset grips onto the belief that intelligence and talents are static, success is accomplished solely based on talent.

Those with a growth mindset tend to do better than those with fixed mindsets in their careers and other areas of life that require perseverance, self-reflection, and good decision-making.

When we know that our brains can change, we do better.
