Mindset – Changing the way you think to fulfil your potential by Dr Carol S Dweck
Dr Carol S Dweck is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading researchers in the fields of personality, social psychology and developmental psychology.
“The hand you are dealt is just the starting point for development.” Carol Dweck
In this book Carol Dweck explains why it’s not just our abilities and talent that bring us success – but whether we approach our goals with a fixed or growth mindset.
She makes clear why praising intelligence and ability doesn't foster self-esteem and lead to accomplishment, but may actually jeopardize success but with the right mindset, we can motivate our children, as well as reach our own personal and professional goals.
“In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment.” Carol Dweck
