The truth about ability & Accomplishment

The truth about ability & Accomplishment

Why some people achieve more & some achieve less than expected?

The key to answering this is mobilizing our resources for learning & not for protecting our egos...the low-effort syndrome. Working hard isn't something that makes us vulnerable (to possible failure & so...judgment), it makes you smarter.

Prodigies or not, we all have interests that can blossom into abilities. With the right mindset & right teaching, people are capable of a lot more than we think - the potential to develop.

Where do Mindsets come from

Where do Mindsets come from

How we interpret whatever we see or experience in the world around and within us is called our mindset. It's a very powerful influencer on what course our life takes.

And some of the factors that affect in a big way the kind of mindset (fixed or growth) we develop are -

  • Being judged and labeled.
  • How are friends, colleagues, and other people in our life usually react to situations or things.
  • How the people we look up to for guidance speak of intelligence, talent, learning, success, & failure.

Fixed vs. Growth mindset

Fixed vs. Growth mindset

  • When success means being smart and failure being dumb, it stunts potential & possibilities in life. Growth mindset helps you love challenges, learn from mistakes, enjoy effort, seek new strategies, and keep learning....basically the main ingredients for meaningful success.
  • With a fixed mindset, the only goal of education becomes prove worth, competence, intelligence...about the label. But growth mindset is about believing people can develop their abilities. It's about setting high standards but offering a nurturing environment too where it's possible to learn, think, and make your own decisions.
  • Focusing on the ability to learn rather than on intelligence and talent, encourages a growth mindset. Praising intelligence & talent makes confidence volatile...because it puts the source of motivation on external validation.

Changing Mindset

Changing Mindset

  • Mindsets guide how we interpret any event, action, and thought, "This means...". Changing our self-talk from a judging one to growth-oriented one...what can I learn from this? How can I improve?...That's growth mindset. & it's based on the belief in change...finding a way to use your abilities. 
  • Drop the good-bad, strong-weak thinking. You're an unfinished human being and every mistake/failure/setback is a clue to do it better next time. New beliefs exist along with the old ones & become stronger over time - we develop a different way to think, feel, and act.
  • Sometimes, simply learning about growth mindset can mobilize people to persevere & meet challenges.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum
