Famous and broadly embraced concept She introduces a phenomenon she calls false growth mindset and guides people toward adopting a deeper truer growth mindset She also expands the mindset concept beyond the individual applying it to the cultures of groups and organizations With the right mindset you can motivate those you lead teach and love to transform their lives and your ow. Recommended in Stanford Magazine and by Guy KawasakiA very useful book about the growth mindset Essentially the book makes a case that those people who look at everything they do in life as a learning opportunity are much successful I think where this comes into play most often is when we face a setback or a failure Whether thats getting rejected from something a job a team etc messing up at work having your boss yell at you losing at something getting laid off making a bad bet etc most of us have many setbacks in our lives How we deal with those is incredibly important If we let the setback define us we might think we aren t talented after all and lose confidence If on the other hand we look at it as something we can learn from we improve as a personI came at the book as it was recommended to me as being good for parents My daughter is only 16 years but already she is learning fast The book recommends praising our children s efforts instead of their results Telling them they are amazing and smart is so easy to do but if you do that their whole lives they won t succeed when they get to the real world What you want is to encourage a learning attitude This uote sums it up So what should we say when children complete a task say math problems uickly and perfectly Should we deny them the praise they have earned Yes When this happens I say Whoops I guess that was too easy I apologize for wasting your time Let s do something you can really learn fromLooking at life as a constant challenge is fun And you can t fail at a personal challenge Here is a great mental imagery techniue the book mentioned when you are doing something you are bad atPicture your brain forming new connections as you meet the challenge and learn Keep on goingAnother interesting bit was how people at the top of their game can get caught up in a fixed mindset You see this in sports all the team the champion team from last year thinks they can cruise through this year doesn t work hard and suddenly they are losing a lot It s so hard to maintain the edge John Wooden puts it bestI believe ability can get you to the top says coach John Wooden but it takes character to keep you there It s so easy to begin thinking you can just turn it on automatically without proper preparation It takes real character to keep working as hard or even harder once you re there When you read about an athlete or team that wins over and over and over remind yourself More than ability they have character

Mindset The New Psychology of Success

A newer edition of this book can be found hereAfter decades of research world renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol S Dweck PhD discovered a simple but groundbreaking idea the power of mindset In this brilliant book she shows how success in school work sports the arts and almost every area of human endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how we think about our talents. I keep hearing educators praising this author and specifically this book Maybe she s better in person I found this book trite It was very repetitive and full of cherry picked stories pulled out just to prove her obvious conclusion Are there really people who think that if you go into something with a negative attitude it won t affect the outcome She goes to the extreme with the positive attitude stuff though I just don t buy that anyone can do anything if they just try hard enough Not trying guarantees you won t do it but trying really hard doesn t mean you will Lots of people try hard for years to get into the Olympics and they don t It doesn t mean that they didn t work as hard as someone who did The author also inserted herself pretty aggressively into this book Her story about tears streaming down her face at the wonderfulness of Italians was too much This book is dated enough that her stories of the greatness of Tiger Woods is pretty funny I found Malcolm Gladwell s Outliers to be a much better book about a similar topic

And abilities People with a fixed mindset those who believe that abilities are fixed are less likely to flourish than those with a growth mindset those who believe that abilities can be developed Mindset reveals how great parents teachers managers and athletes can put this idea to use to foster outstanding accomplishmentIn this edition Dweck offers new insights into her now. I think a lot of people who rated this book highly must have had a fixed mindsetI think this book was a waste of money personally The tone of the book is very repetitive and annoying Essentially people with a growth mindset are better than people without it in every possible way If you have a fixed mindset you ll have lower grades in school be unhappier die earlier be fatter be likely to never get married make a bundle less money you name it It reads like fear mongering than actual research rattling off a list of everyone s most basic fears But if you listen to me Carol Dweck all of your dreams and will come trueI also don t recall Dweck listing many references to any of her research you re just supposed to take her stories at face value Because I m a researcher Mindset offers a lot of words with little substance I will admit that I haven t finished the book and I don t plan to Dweck s tone really just grated on my nerves and I don t feel I gained anything useful from reading what parts of the book I read I can t imagine anything useful coming to light at the end

    Okay so the idea is fine and usable and easy to explain to others and pretty simple I was about to give this book a one star rating because I was so irritated with Dr Dweck trying to shoehorn her idea into every single success story in the history of humanity and basically saying that her theory was the best explanation of that success Conversely every failure could have been averted but for a change in mindset It was the Fixed mindset th
