The book Mindset comes down to how you look at life. People generally have either a Fixed mindset or a Growth mindset.
Fixed Mindset – the belief that your qualities (intelligence, personality, moral character) are carved in stone.
Growth Mindset – the belief that your qualities are things you can cultivate through your own efforts.
While a person with a fixed mindset is more interested in whether their answer is right or wrong, a person with a growth mindset is more concerned with why it is right or wrong.
A person with a fixed mindset views failure as a fixed point. You failed.
A person with a growth mindset views failure as an opportunity to learn.
Even in the growth mindset, failure can be a painful experience. But it doesn’t define you. It’s a problem to be dealt with, and learned from.
So broaden your mind and pick up the book, Mindset.
