4 fixed mindset

4

fixed mindset

Imagine if there was a way of thinking that almost guaranteed that you would become a success in life, a belief system that the vast majority of “geniuses” shared and most average performers didn’t.

Imagine if this attitude was learnable and that when you adopted it, almost every area of your life would improve.

Well, in the view of the eminent professor of psychology Carol Dweck, there is such a way of thinking. It’s called the Growth Mindset.

Dweck and her students have spent the last twenty years researching whether the mindset you have affects whether you will fail or succeed in life. Their results are remarkable and potentially life-changing.

Professor Dweck had long known that our beliefs affected our performance in all manner of ways, but over time she discovered that there are two mindsets that govern a human’s failure rate most powerfully: the Fixed Mindset and the Growth Mindset.
