What is Mindset

Mindset explains:

  • Why brains and talent don’t bring success
  • How they can stand in the way of it
  • Why praising brains and talent doesn’t foster self-esteem and accomplishment, but jeopardizes them
  • How teaching a simple idea about the brain raises grades and productivity
  • What all great CEOs, parents, teachers, athletes know

In a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. They spend their time documenting their intelligence or talent instead of developing them. They also believe that talent alone creates success—without effort. They’re wrong.

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. Virtually all great people have had these qualities.

Teaching a growth mindset creates motivation and productivity in the worlds of business, education, and sports. It enhances relationships. When you read Mindset, you’ll see how.

As a student, i think mindset is one of the significant habit we should have and of course in a good way. Sometimes student will tend to be more demotivated when it comes to revising books everyday. Their minds would eventually start thinking, “So many pages to read. Too tired” and so on. Here where Mindset should come across. Student should try to keep motivating themselves without thinking of other negative reasons not too. Instead we say “I don’t know how to do this”, we should say “I don’t know how to do this YET”. Or, “I study because I want to lessen my parents burden on paying my school fees and if i achieve high marks, at least they will think its worth it”. With this set of mind, it will make you to move forward
