Carol Dweck: Mindset Audio Book Summary
Carol Dweck, a Stanford University world-renowned psychologist who spent many years in research related to success and achievement managed to discover a profound idea that involves the power behind our mindset. She explains in her book that it is not only talents and abilities that bring about success, but how we approach these with a growth or fixed mindset. The summary of this book includes how individuals will learn:
ïHow talent and brains do not bring about success
ïHow talents and brain can often delay or prevent success
ïWhy praising talents and brains will not encourage self-esteem
ïHow teaching simple ideas related to the brain can increase productivity
ïHow a change in mindset is always a possibility
The crux involved in Mindset involves that generally there are two types of people. These include the ones who have ìfixedî mindsets and the ones that posses a ìgrowthî mindset.
For the individuals who possess the ìfixedî mindset, they will often believe that their personal intelligence is also ìfixedî and will often care a lot about whether they seem smart to others. These types often avoid challenges, give up fairly easily and view hard work as a waste or an effort because they believe they are either talented enough or not talented enough to complete a task.
The individuals with the ìgrowthî mindsets will view that their intelligence can be adaptable and that their mind can develop. These types of people often have a desire that is intense to learn and avoid potential setbacks and embrace challenges. They also view hard work as a way to become better at what they are aiming towards.
In research conducted by the author, she suggests that the only barrier that will separate individuals from who succeeds and the ones that donít is related to whether they have a ìgrowthî mindset or not. The book is all about this particular mindset and teaches readers how to learn about it as well as use it.
