Don't have ENTITY mindset

This belief is wrong that ‘skill is an ingrained and unalterable level of ability.’ So, don't use language like

  • I am a good writer
  • I am bad at Music

Also, parents should not set their children up for failure by telling them

  • You are so good at reading
  • Maths is not your thing

This is called “Learned helplessness orientation”.

Grab the INCREMENTAL theory of intelligence

It is true and should be believed that ‘any concept or skill can be grasped and mastered incrementally. So, prefer to say things like

  • I did well because I put in time
  • I should have worked harder at this

To help their children, parents can say things like

  • You are getting really good at reading, keep it up
  • It's ok, we just need to study a little harder and you will do great on the next maths test

Teach children the “Mastery oriented response”, so that they can associate success with effort not anything else.

Recurring cycle in the process of learning

  • One phase of full throttle action
  • One phase of influx, broken down growth

Most people refuse to invest in loss during the growth stages and as a result never upgrade their game.

Sometimes you need to breakdown every thing in mind and start from ground zero to reconstruct the game and to reach to the next level. So you need to invest in loss sometimes.

Peak Performance is related to stress and recovery process

Better the recovery process, better performance.

More you practise the cycles of rest, the less you will need to take. Athletes are taught this as “interval training”.

CURATOR'S NOTE

Most of us don't know about how to learn the things, with what attitude we face the situation, which mindset is better you approach the next goal.
