MORE IDEAS FROM THE BOOK

Growth Mindset In Detail

Intelligence can be developed. Leads to a desire to learn and therefore a tendency to...

  • Challenges: embrace challenges
  • Obstacles: persist in the face of setbacks
  • Effort: see effort as the path to mastery
  • Criticism: learn from criticism
  • Success of Others: find lessons and inspiration in the success of others

As a result, they reach ever-higher levels of achievement.

All this gives them a greater sense of will.

Fixed Mindset In Detail

Intelligence is static. Leads to a desire, to look smart and therefore a tendency to...

  • Challenges: avoid challenges
  • Obstacles: give up easily
  • Effort: see effort as fruitless or worse
  • Criticism: ignore useful negative feedback
  • Success of Others: feel threatened by the success of others

As a result, they may plateau early and achieve less than their full potential.

All this confirms as deterministic view of the world.

1.1 The Two Mindsets

There are two main mindsets we can navigate life with: growth and fixed.

A. The Fixed Mindset

Our view of ourselves can determine everything. If we believe that our qualities are unchangeable — the fixed mindset — we will want to prove ourselves correct over and over rather than learning from our mistakes.

1.2 The Two Mindsets

B. The Growth Mindset

The passion for stretching ourselves and sticking to it, even (or especially) when it’s not going well, is the hallmark of the growth mindset. This is the mindset that allows people to thrive during some of the most challenging times in their lives.

In short, having a growth mindset is essential for success. The growth mindset creates a powerful passion for learning.

The fear of getting out of your comfort zone

We are all afraid of new experiences, especially of the ones that require us to leave the safety of our comfort zone.

The way we react whenever this occurs has a big influence on how we live our life: instead of being scared, why not trying to embrace the new challenges with optimism and self-confidence? The results might be quite impressive.

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.
