Logic Of The Day: 03.07.2018.
Reading Dr Carol S Dweck’s book ‘Mindset’ literally changed my life. In it she describes the results of studying hundreds of successful people from across a range of fields like business, education and sports.
She identifies one uniting trait that separates these exceptional people from everyone else. These superstars see output as directly linked to efforts. In other words, they believe that to be better at something they must simply work harder. And they make effort to understand their strengths and weaknesses.
That’s what it means to have a growth mindset. Their counterparts with a fixed mindset believe abilities are pre-ordained and see failures as the point at which you quit.
To adopt a growth mindset is to turn failures into lessons and to acknowledge your skills and development areas, as opposed to being in denial of them and blaming setbacks on everything but yourself.
