Summary

Are you aware that your thoughts/beliefs have a significant impact on your life? This is your mind-set, and it is what guides you to or keeps you from fulfilling your potential. This guide is a brief outline of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, by Carol Dweck. 

This guide seeks to give you a better understanding of the book and will help you determine if you want to know more about Mindset - and whether you need to change yours or not. 

Some people have a fixed mind-set- they believe things are the way they are and there’s nothing that can be done about it. Others have a growth mind-set - they believe that no matter where and what you start with, you have the potential to become so much more. 

In this audiobook, you’ll learn about: 

  • Fixed mind-set versus growth mind-set 
  • How your mind-set affects your performance 
  • How your mind-set affects your parenting (and therefore your children) 
  • How the mind-set of teachers/coaches affects children 
  • How to change your mind-set 
  • And so much more 

This is a fascinating, in-depth look at how you can fulfill your full potential in every way possible. 

After listening to this audiobook, you’ll know what type of mind-set you have and whether you would benefit from changing or if you just need to continue developing what you have.

Enjoy this book.

As promised on the cover, Mindset provides advice that you can apply whether you are a manager, worker, parent, teacher, or some combination. There were a few places where I thought it dragged a bit, but those sections were brief and far between, and on net it was a quick enjoyable listen.

Great Listen.

One of the best books I ever listen in my life. It says that the main different between successful people and normal people is in the simple way that people think. Does they believe in self grow, effort, change or they just believe that I was born like that and I'll blame everything in other people.

Very good book!

The best part is that he understood how this has affected him and he has applied what he read in this book and has begun to make progress on some of his problem areas. It also helped us to understand some of our areas of friction.

Finally understood.

Finally, understood why my hubby struggles so much. He has a fixed mindset according to how it is described in this book.

Good job.

A Growth Mindset is more than just having a positive mental attitude, as the author so beautifully describes in this book. Our choice is to operate with a Fixed or a Growth Mindset, and the implications are far reaching.

A higher level of achievement.

Those with a Growth Mindset believe that our capacity can be developed, embrace challenge, persist in spite of difficulties, understand that effort is the path to mastery, learn from criticism and are inspired by the success of others. A higher level of achievement.

Absolutely inspiration.

Those with a Fixed Mindset believe that our capacity is fixed or static. They avoid challenges, give up early, believe effort is fruitless, ignore negative feedback and are threatened by the success of others. The result is they plateau early.

Encourage a growth mindset.

This concept is particularly relevant to how we raise our children. Compliment their efforts and persistence. Reward their perseverance and encourage them to learn from the success of others. Encourage a growth mindset.

Interesting listen

I really think that the conceptual content would really help drive student achievement and a growth mindset in our students IF we stop trying to educate our students in the same old manner.

I am absolutely in love with this book.

I am absolutely in love with this book. Author is the head of the growth mindset movement. Essentially, you can choose to view all things in life as something you are naturally capable of or something that you can work to accomplish.

Great things can happen.

Great things can happen. I am planning on writing my master's thesis on the growth mindset as it applies to behavioral intervention.
