The Growth Mindset was founded over 30 years because a woman, Carol Dweck, and her colleagues wanted to understand the attitudes of their students towards failure.

In this book, you will learn that the mindset theory is not a theory but has scientific evidence that one can use towards their own growth mindset.

Did you know that there two different types of mindset? I didn't until I read this book which is interesting. The two types are growth mindset which believes that they can get smarter by practicing their skills whereas the fixed mindset believe that they can't change their intelligence no matter how many times they practice.

The Benefits of Growth Mindset:

* Enjoy life more

* Improved self-esteem and self-confidence

* Ability to forgive

* Realistic Perception of Reality

* Increased resilience

* Regard setbacks as useful lessons

* Finding joy in processes

In this chapter of the benefits, you will find a section on each of these with information on them. You can find out about how to accomplish these.

Techniques:

* Embrace Imperfection

* Reframe your Perceptions

*Learn new things often

* Avoid seeking approval

* Value the process more

* Own your purpose

* Emphasize on your growth

* Reflect Regularly

If you want to learn how to do these techniques in your own growth mindset, then you will need to read this book to do find out.



My Thoughts

I love that this book has an easy and simple way of understanding what the author is conveying. The chapters are informative in that it is easy to know when it is talking about something else. For example, in the chapter of Developing Your Growth Mindset, the author has broken it down into paragraphs of each technique and the technique is in bold. I love this because it is easy to read.


I would recommend this book to those who love to read self-help books, those who want help solving their problems, those who are interested in personal transformation and those who just love to read about it.
