Introduction

Carol Dweck studies human motivation. She spends her days diving into why people succeed (or don’t) and what’s within our control to foster success. Her theory of the two mindsets- the fixed mindset and growth mindset and the difference they make in outcomes is incredibly powerful.

Fixed Mindset

Your view of yourself can determine everything. If you believe that your qualities are unchangeable — the fixed mindset — you will want to prove yourself correct over and over rather than learning from your mistakes.

One seventh-grade girl summed it up. “I think intelligence is something you have to work for . . . it isn’t just given to you. . . . Most kids, if they’re not sure of an answer, will not raise their hand to answer the question. But what I usually do is raise my hand, because if I’m wrong, then my mistake will be corrected. Or I will raise my hand and say, ‘How would this be solved?’ or ‘I don’t get this. Can you help me?’ Just by doing that I’m increasing my intelligence.”

Relationships: Mindset in Love

Some people let bad experiences scar them and prevent them from forming satisfying relationships in the future. Others are able to heal and move on.

When people had the fixed mindset, they felt judged and labeled by the rejection.

For people with the growth mindset, the number one goal is forgiveness. As one woman said: “I’m no saint, but I knew for my own peace of mind that I had to forgive and forget. He hurt me but I had a whole life waiting for me and I’ll be damned if I was going to live it in the past. One day I just said, ‘Good luck to him and good luck to me.’ ”

Picture your ideal love relationship. Does it involve perfect compatibility—no disagreements, no compromises, no hard work? In every relationship, issues arise. Try to see them from a growth mindset: Problems can be a vehicle for developing greater understanding and intimacy.

Are you shy? Next time you’re venturing into a social situation, think about these things: how social skills are things you can improve and how social interactions are for learning and enjoyment, not judgment. Keep practicing this.

Michael Jordan never let a mistake stop him.

“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over. And that is why I succeed.”

Growth Mindset for Parents, Teachers and Coaches

As a parent practice working the process praise with your children. Praise the processes they used—their strategies, effort, or choices.

Ask these questions: "What did you learn today?" "What mistakes did you make and does it taught you something?"

Fixed mindset teacher create a atmosphere of judging. These teachers look at student's beginning performance and decide who's smart and who's dumb.

Great teachers believe in the growth of the intellect and talent, and they are fascinated with the process of learning.

Fixed mindset coaches are intolerant of mistakes. They motivate players through judgement.

For coaches instead of asking for mistake-free games, ask for full commitment and full effort. Instead of judging the players, give them the respect and the coaching they need to develop.

"Your failures and misfortunes don’t threaten other people’s self-esteem. Ego-wise, it’s easy to be sympathetic to someone in need. It’s your assets and your successes that are problems for people who derive their self-esteem from being superior."
