IF, like those with the growth mindset, you believe you can develop yourself, then you're open to accurate information about your current abilities, even it it's unflattering. What's more, if you're oriented toward learning, as they are, you need accurate information about your current abilities in order to learn effectively

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.

Mindset

by Carol Dweck

...so many people declare they have it:

  • If they are open minded and flexible, they said they have it
  • If they are kind to people, they said they have it 

But a growth mindset is not something you declare, it’s a really difficult journey you take over a long period of time.

Growth Mindset:

  • tend to understand basic abilities as malleable, and believe they can be developed over time.
  • love new challenges and view setbacks as opportunities to learn.
  • display better self-esteem, more resilience, and enjoy better outcomes in life

Fixed Mindset:

  • tend to believe their basic attributes )like intelligence and talent) are innate and set in stone;
  • avoid difficult tasks, fearing that failure might expose a lack in ability.
