Logic Of The Day: 31/10/2017.
Carol Dweck, Stanford psychology professor, has revolutionized our understanding of intelligence. Most people are taught that intelligence is fixed. Either you have “it” or you don’t. However, Dweck redefined intelligence as a fluid and flexible entity — where the most resilient come out on top.
Those with this “mastery” approach — who seek learning with an intrinsic desire to improve — are the people who become the best in the world at what they do. Success is not born, it is made.
Once your decision has been made, you’re no longer restrained in your abilities. Instead, you are enhanced and consecrated in your performance. Where most people rely solely upon themselves, your abilities are channeled and heightened by a source beyond your own.
