Mindset by Carol Dwek
Brief Synopsis:Carol Dweck reveals how mindset and attitude are a big component of our success. She explains the difference between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset: ‘People with a fixed mindset – those who believe that abilities are fixed – are less likely to flourish than those with a growth mindset – those who believe that abilities can be developed.” She goes further to illustrate how theses two mindsets appear in business, sports, and school and she explains where they come from and how we can change them.
Selected Because:I don’t’ know about you, but I want to flourish and I certainly don’t want my mindset to be the reason I don’t! Through this book I became aware of some of my limiting beliefs and now I’m working on changing my view point so that I’m not the one standing in the way of my own success
