Mindset: The New Psychology of Success | Carol Dweck
World-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck, in decades of research on achievement and success, has discovered a truly groundbreaking ideathe power of our mindset. Dweck explains why its not just our abilities and talent that bring us successbut whether we approach them with a fixed or growth mindset. She makes clear why praising intelligence and ability doesnt foster self-esteem and lead to accomplishment, but may actually jeopardize success. With the right mindset, we can motivate our kids and help them to raise their grades, as well as reach our own goalspersonal and professional. Dweck reveals what all great parents, teachers, CEOs, and athletes already know: how a simple idea about the brain can create a love of learning and a resilience that is the basis of great accomplishment in every area. Praise for Mindset Everyone should read this book.Chip and Dan Heath, authors of Switch and Made to Stick Will prove to be one of the most influential books ever about motivation.Po Bronson, author of NurtureShock A good book is one whose advice you believe. A great book is one whose advice you follow. I have found Carol Dwecks work on mindsets invaluable in my own life, and even life-changing in my attitudes toward the challenges that, over the years, become more demanding rather than less. This is a book that can change your life, as its ideas have changed mine.Robert J. Sternberg, IBM Professor of Education and Psychology at Yale University, director of the PACE Center of Yale University, and author of Successful Intelligence If you manage any people or if you are a parent (which is a form of managing people), drop everything and read Mindset.Guy Kawasaki, author of The Art of the Start and the blog How to Change the World Highly recommended . . . an essential read for parents, teachers [and] coaches . . . as well as for those who would like to increase their own feelings of success and fulfillment.Library Journal (starred review) A serious, practical book. Dwecks overall assertion that rigid thinking benefits no one, least of all yourself, and that a change of mind is always possible, is welcome.Publishers Weekly A wonderfully elegant idea . . . It is a great book.Edward M. Hallowell, M.D., author of Delivered from Distraction From the Hardcover edition.

This photo was taken a few weeks ago as I was reading the tagged book (nonfiction psychology book about growth mindsets). My cat's name on paper is Rocky but he answers to Kitty (so original, right?). If I'm not paying attention to him, he likes to walk across my lap or my hips and legs if I'm lying on my side. #catsoflitsy

ImperfectCJ Carol Dweck has been quite influential at my house. As has my cat, who thinks he owns the place. But then, he'd probably say the same thing about me. :-) Welcome to Litsy! 3mo
jen_the_scribe @ImperfectCJ Haha yep same with my cat! Thank you 😊 3mo

This book focuses on teaching you to hone a growth mindset, and how to influence the children in your life to do the same. A game changer backed with studies and actual experiences.

We read this book as part of a work book club. I still need some time to digest everything and see how I can use the information. The most useful sections are the first three and last one. You can use the middle chapters as they relate to what you do or need because that‘s where a lot of the application of the principles are.

This is the first book of the three we were given at work. A colleague and I are running a company book club that meets this afternoon and guess who actually read what they were supposed to read?! 😀

Special thank you to @Chrissyreadit @BarbaraTheBibliophage @Kristy_K for their input on which book to start.

Chrissyreadit I hope you liked it! 7mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage 👊🏻 Good job! 7mo
Kristy_K Excited to see what you think about it! 7mo

A quick listen on audio, for work. We‘ve been pushing growth mindset as part of my company‘s new performance management process and I figured I‘d better go to the source. This was one of the better books I‘ve read for work - clear, engaging, and logical.

Chrissyreadit I listened to this with my kids and we all gained great perspective from it. I also think one of the best books I‘ve read about learning. 12mo
cariashley @Chrissyreadit I want all my parent-friends to read it! 12mo

Great book that opens the doors of imagination and endless opportunities. A book that unlocks the brain to grow and believe that a person can achieve anything with learning, hard work and passion.

An excellent book on the competing concepts of a fixed and growth mindset. The author does a good job helping readers to understand the difference in the two mindsets and why a growth mindset can bring great success! #mindset #growth #personal #professional

#riotgrams I rarely complete self-improvement books but this is an exception.
Dweck's writing was easy to relate to and her suggestions are not difficult to apply. The succinct anecdotes kept me glued to this book.
It certainly helped improve my teaching and how I approach work and parenting.

Is double 'had' correct? #Help #Question

DarcysMom Grammar Girl says it is correct, although it can be awkward. 🤓 2y
Redwritinghood Looks awkward, but it's correct. 2y
jpmcwisemorgan That that does that to me sometimes too. 2y
MyBookSwapClub Thank you :-) I had to reread twice before understanding the whole sentence :) 2y

When it's #24in48 the 4 year old wakes you up at 4:15 and you can't fall back asleep after putting her back to bed ... carpe diem! #readingwhileparenting

What do you feed your mind with?

Meh. It starts out great, explaining the ideas if fixed and growth mindset and how people with each mindset react to problems, but it ends up repetitive with no explicit advice or work you can do to change from a fixed to a growth mindset. If you pay attention you can glean some general ideas on how to change your mindset from the examples... but that's about it.

"I believe ability can get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there. It takes character to keep working as hard or even harder once you're there.... why waste time proving over and over how great you are, when you could be getting better?"

Highly recommend. Listened to the audiobook, but plan to read the book next. Great evidence for how growth mindset can improve your quality of life.

Reading for a professional book discussion group at work. 100 pages in and I still feel like the author is trying to convince me that she's right. I was hopeful for more specific information about how to develop the Growth Mindset in myself, my children, and my students. Maybe the remainder of the book will have more to offer.

EchoLogical Totally agree with this! I gave up after awhile because there were a bunch of anecdotes and no real information. I keep thinking I should have kept reading but it really felt like a chore. 3y

Happy Recommendations Day! I urge all humans to read this book. Seriously, it would make the world s better place. Dweck gets to the source of motivation- and teaches you how to understand yourself and others better as well as how to change your outlook to one of a "growth" mindset.
