How To Help Every Child Fulfill Their Potential
Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck explains how the wrong kind of praise actually harms young people. It has to do with mindset. She discovered in decades of research on achievement and success that a mindset is a simple idea that makes all the difference. She pointed two kinds of mindset- Fixed mindset and growth mindset. 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.
