Dweck explains why it’s not just our abilities and talent that bring us success—but whether we approach them with a fixed or growth mindset. She makes clear why praising intelligence and ability doesn’t 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 goals—personal 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.
This has become the book that I have recommended most to people over the last year or two. It seems quite intuitive in the beginning and in some cases you might have to power through the first couple chapters, but what comes after that is amazing! I think this book is especially important to anyone who is currently or planning on becoming a parent.
Absolutely simple and amazing! So obvious in hindsight but great perspective! Read it cause it was recommended by Bill Gates and now I know why. It's going to help shape a lot of my activities and thought process going forward. Nothing is not doable, it just requires extra effort.
