A revolutionary way of attaining better results in all areas of life. Carol Dweck underlines key points to help us understand the difference between a fixed and growth mindset, the potential results, and most importantly how to build that bridge from now to yet.

Are we raising children for now instead of yet?

By exloring our underlying beliefs about learning and intelligence we may begin to understand the link between mindsets and achievement. If you believe your mind can grow, you behave differently. We can change a person's mindset from fixed to growth, and when we do, it leads to increased motivation and achievement. Don't praise intelligence and talent. Praise hard work and effort to cultivate a growth mindset. With a growth mindset you take on challenges and learn from them, therefore increasing your abilities and achievement. When you have a growth mindset you understad your abilities could be developed.
