    Okay, so the idea is fine, and usable, and easy to explain to others, and pretty simple I was about to give this book a one star rating because I was so irritated with Dr Dweck trying to shoehorn her idea into every single success story in the history of humanity and basically saying that her theory was the best explanation of that success Conversely, every failure could have been averted but for a change in mindset It was the Fixed mindset that caused the Chicago Cubs to never win a World Series If only they had the Growth mindset, like the Yankees, they would win World Series.Dweck may be too in love with her own ideas to realize that she oversells the usefulness of her theory to the extent that the portion that is actually workable seems underwhelming after cutting away from her salesman like puffery However, Mindset still serves as a useful supplement to a change manag...

    I keep hearing educators praising this author and, specifically, this book Maybe she s better in person I found this book trite It was very repetitive and full of cherry picked stories pulled out just to prove her obvious conclusion Are there really people who think that if you go into something with a negative attitude it won t affect the outcome She goes to the extreme with the positive attitude stuff, though I just don t buy that anyone can do anything if they just try hard enough Not trying guarantees you won t do it, but trying really hard doesn t mean you will Lots of people try hard for years to get into the Olympics and they don t It doesn t mean that they didn t work as hard as someone who did The author also inserted herself pretty aggressively into this book Her story about tears streaming down her face at the wonderfulness of Italians was too m...

    For practical insights refer to Growth Mindset vs Fixed MindsetHave ever noticed those geeks, geniuses, and world class achievers while thinking to yourself, gosh, if only I had such talents, or if only I had such high IQ Disappointing, I know, I have been there Perhaps, such way of thinking and having such beliefs about IQ and talent is the biggest hurdle in the way of great success and achievement Thinking that we are born with a pre determined IQ and talent, is called fixed mindset according to Carol Dweck, a professor at Stanford University The bad news is that people with fixed mindset live a mediocre life and barely achieve anything extraordinary The good news, however, is that you can readily change your fixed mindset and adopt a growth mindset which is the default mode thinking of world class achievers.In this book review, I will provide a summary of the key points in the book Mindset The psychology of success In addition, I will provide you with practical insights on how you can apply the concepts in the book and alter this self limiting belief So, let s learn how to think like pros.The two mindsets and how they determine your futureDweck, as a young researcher, has always been obsessed with understanding how people cope with failure So, at schools, she brings children into a room and gives them a series of puzzles to solve Puzzles start from fairly easy and continue to get ...

    Excellent book This one sounds like a typical self help book, but it s a real find The author is a pyschology researcher at Columbia, and her book is filled with insights and illustrations regarding the differences that a fixed mindset vs a growth mindset can have when applied to business, parenting, school, and relationships Her research has been highlighted in many venues, including an excellent book on parenting titled Nurture Shock I give it 5 stars because I can see so much of myself in the book s description of the fixed mindset The book s message spoke to me and the mindset I ve adopted in some areas of my life I m particularly prone to the Effort Gone Awry scenario where I would work hard, but not with a growth mindset i.e., one associated with the love of learning Rather, I d be working hard to prove myself to others I worked hard to have achievements that would validate my self worth and adopted identity The downside is that you end up being unwilling to take risks or face tough challenges if you fail, your self worth goes down Also, you end up running yourself ragged and being stressed out because you re afraid of losing the approval of others if you don t succeed.I find the growth mindset fits very well within a Christian perspective as our life in God needs to be always one of continual growth higher up and deeper in as C.S Lewis would say The fixed vs growth mindset isn t the whole story, but it s an important part of the puzzle in helping us better underst...

    Let me preface this review by saying that my boss made me read this book, because, apparently, reading assignments are something that I should have as a 5th year PhD candidate Not only that, but I m pretty sure no one should require me to read a shitty waste of time self help book.Let me save you the money and the aggrivation The point of this book is admittedly not terrible, but it could be summed up real fast Here you go, you re welcome.Often, people see their abilities as fixed and this attitude stops them from working to better themselves, turns out that if you work hard and keep the right can do attitude, that you can accomplish than if you think you re doomed to be a particular skill level forever There are examples of this all around you.Boom Done But no What you get with this book is an endless diatribe Hey, you remember that thing that happened in history Where X person did Y thing that turned out to be good bad Well, if it was bad, it was TOTALLY because they had a fixed mindset If it was good, it was 100% because of their growth mindset This is true of literally any example in history ever no matter how poorly researched it might be Michael Jordan SURE THING That guy from that one business that went bad WHAT A FIX MINDED DUMBASS Bethoven Duh Seriously, I don t think I have ever read something so repetitive and belabored...

    I think a lot of people who rated this book highly must have had a fixed mindset.I think this book was a waste of money, personally The tone of the book is very repetitive and annoying Essentially people with a growth mindset are better than people without it in every possible way If you have a fixed mindset you ll have lower grades in school, be unhappier, die earlier, be fatter, be likely to never get married, make a bundle less money, you name it It reads like fear mongering than actual research, rattling off a list of everyone s most basic fears But if you listen to me, Carol Dweck, all of your dreams and will come true.I also don t recall Dweck listing many references to any of her research, you re just supposed to take her stories at face value Because I m a researcher Mindset offers a lot of words w...

    Recommended in Stanford Magazine and by Guy Kawasaki.A very useful book about the growth mindset Essentially, the book makes a case that those people who look at everything they do in life as a learning opportunity are much successful I think where this comes into play most often is when we face a setback, or a failure Whether thats getting rejected from something a job, a team, etc , messing up at work, having your boss yell at you, losing at something, getting laid off, making a bad bet, etc most of us have many setbacks in our lives How we deal with those is incredibly important If we let the setback define us, we might think we aren t talented after all, and lose confidence If on the other hand, we look at it as something we can learn from, we improve as a person.I came at the book as it was recommended to me as being good for parents My daughter is only 1.6 years, but already she is learning fast The book recommends praising our children s efforts, instead of their results Telling them they are amazing , and smart is so easy to do, but if you do that their whole lives they won t succeed when they get to the real world What you want is to encourage a learning attitude This quote sums it up So what should we say when childr...

    Watered down and scientifically not that accurate grit is a part of conscientiousness see studies below , welcome to education s favorite book Here is my two sentence summary of this book best spoken in kindergartner teacher voice There are two kinds of people in the world, people who believe things are fixed, others who believe they can change through hard work and effort, so believe in the ladder and success will open in front of you Hooray you are a special snowflake that can grow Heavy on the inspirational stories and antidotes, light on the data to support some of the arguments and essentially void of the how to I agree that the right attitude, one that embraces struggle and hard work in order to increase your talents which are not fixed, but fluid , helps you succeed in life But it s about putting ideas into action This book offers very little practical advice or steps one can take in order to do so I think most people, after reading this, get that warm fuzzy feelin...

    This is probably all i really need to hear out of this book, but i will read the whole thing anyway there are two mindsets fixed and growth.Believing that your qualities are carved in stone the fixed mindset creates an urgency to prove yourself over and over If you have only a certain amount of intelligence, a certain personality, and a certain moral character well, then you d better prove you have a healthy dose of them It simply wouldn t do to look or feel deficient in these most basic characteristics I ve seen so many people with this one consuming goal of proving themselves in the classroom, in their careers, and in their relationships Every situation calls for a confirmation of their intelligence, personality, or character Every situation is evaluated Will I succeed or fail Will I look smart or dumb Will I be accepted or rejected Will I feel like a winner or a loser There s another mindset in which these traits are not simply a hand you re dealt and have to live with, always trying to ...
