Mindset The New Psychology of Success

Hology eBook #9734 by how we think about our talents and abilities 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 Mindset reveals how great parents teachers managers and athletes can put this idea to use to foster outstanding accomplishmentIn this edition Dweck offers. For practical insights refer to Growth Mindset vs Fixed MindsetHave ever noticed those geeks geniuses and world class achievers while thinking to yourself gosh if only I had such talents or if only I had such high I Disappointing I know I have been there Perhaps such way of thinking and having such beliefs about I and talent is the biggest hurdle in the way of great success and achievement Thinking that we are born with a pre determined I and talent is called fixed mindset according to Carol Dweck a professor at Stanford University The bad news is that people with fixed mindset live a mediocre life and barely achieve anything extraordinary The good news however is that you can readily change your fixed mindset and adopt a growth mindset which is the default mode thinking of world class achieversIn this book review I will provide a summary of the key points in the book Mindset The psychology of success In addition I will provide you with practical insights on how you can apply the concepts in the book and alter this self limiting belief So let s learn how to think like prosThe two mindsets and how they determine your futureDweck as a young researcher has always been obsessed with understanding how people cope with failure So at schools she brings children into a room and gives them a series of puzzles to solve Puzzles start from fairly easy and continue to get harder and harder As the students grunt perspire and toil she watches their strategies This is where she gets shocked by the two starkly different approaches children adopted when facing difficult challengesConfronted with harder puzzles one ten year old pulls up his chair rubs his hands together smacks his lips and cries out I love a challenge Another seating away on the puzzles looks up with a pleased expression and says with authority You know I was hoping this would be informative As Dweck puts it What s wrong with them I wondered I always thought you coped with failure or you didn t cope with failure I never thought anyone loved failure Were these alien children or were they on to something These children turned out to be thinking with a growth mindset A person with a growth mindset believes that human ualities such as intellectual skills can be cultivated through effort Having this belief not only they do not get discouraged by failure they don t even think they are failing Rather they think that they are learning and conseuently they get smarterThe superpower of people with growth mindset is that they have the confidence and courage to start and accomplish anything and they do accomplish because in the face of many inevitable failures they are not discouraged They do not say to themselves I am a failure rather they say I failed Hence they persevere and they will triumph at the taskPeople with a fixed mindset on the other hand think that human ualities are carved in stone You are smart or you are not and failure means you are not The sad story for people with fixed mindset is that the try to avoid failure at all costs so they can stay feel smart Struggles mistakes perseverance are just not part of their philosophyWhy do people differThe uestion that arises here is why some people are endowed with a growth mindset while the others are doomed with the fixed mindset The answer is in their childhood upbringing and it is really simpleImagine you are given a puzzle and you solve it Now your parent sees your accomplishment This is where the seeds to glory or mediocrity get implanted If your parent praised you in the lines of Look what a smart boygirl You are so intelligent excellent Sorry to tell but you are doomed if you have heard similar praises during your childhood Such complements may come from your parents teachers caretakers the source doesn t really matter But wait for a second aren t such praises suppose to uplift your spirit and raise your confidence Well let s see what happens behind the curtain in your subconscious mind when you are complimented on a trait over which you have not direct control in this case I and intelligenceImagine you have solved a puzzle and received a juicy complement hinting on you high I or intelligence Now you are given a harder puzzle you strive to solve it but you notice it is taking much time This is where the self limiting seeds start to grow In your subconscious you will start a self dialog along these lines hmm wasn t I a smart boygirl why am I not able to solve this puzzle then Hmm maybe this is just how smart I am My intelligence is limited to those tasks only From then on you will be very conservative of the activities you will get yourself into for the sake of preserving your self esteem Too bad Don t freak out though if you are in this category I will share with you how you can easily change this self limiting mindset as we proceed Now let s see how children are endowed with the growth mindsetImagine again the very same scenario you solve a problem and now it is time for some praises Your parent instructor while marveling at your accomplishments says Hmm good job this might have been an easy puzzle let s do something challengingorHmm good job you seem to have worked so hard let s move on to a harder puzzle Take note that in the second scenario there is no emphasis on an innate trait rather the praise is on something which is you have control over that is your efforts and how hard you workNow let s examine your self dialog as you face the new harder challenge When you try to solve the puzzle and it takes time than the usual if you could play your subconscious mind s voice a little louder you would hearHmm I have not yet solved it I have not tried enough I must work harder on it it is excitingYou see the difference How do I know if I have fixed mindset or growth mindsetThe cornerstone of change is to first acknowledge that a shortcoming exist So to uncover if you have the fixed or growth mindset read the sentences belowOur intelligence is something very basic about you that you can t change very muchYou can learn new things but you can t really change how intelligent you areNo matter how much intelligence you have you can always change it uite a bitYou can always substantially change how intelligent you areIf you agree with the sentences 1 and 2 you are mostly behaving and operating with a fixed mindset and if you identify yourself with sentences 3 and 4 you operating with a growth mindsetWhen asked people ranging from children to young adults When Do You Feel Smart When you are flawless or when you are learning Here are how differently people with a fixed mindset repliedIt s when I don t make any mistakesWhen I finish something fast and it s perfectWhen Something is easy for me but other people can t do itAnd this is how people with growth mindset replied When it s really hard and I try really hard and I can do something I couldn t do beforeWhen I work on something for a long time and I start to figure it outSee the difference Which set of answers resonates most with youThere was a saying in 1960 which read Becoming is better than being The fixed mindset robs people from the luxury of becoming They have to already be Mindset in relationshipsMindsets manifest themselves in every domain whether you are a leader teacher parent or a husbandwife I chose relationship since I guess there are lots of myths around this topic we all once craved to find our one true soulmate I guess and also you must beware that even people with growth mindset might approach a domain like relationships with fixed mindsetPeople with fixed mindset think that if their relationship is the right one and if they are compatible with one another well this means most things will fall into its place In the face of problems they tremble and threads of doubts and fears start to sneak inPeople with fixed mindset say if this is the right relationship and if we are compatible there must be no need for hustle and hard work to get it to work Remember the delusions sparked by the fixed mindset If you have the ability then you shouldn t work hard for it Aaron Beck noted marriage authority says that one of the most destructive beliefs for a relationship is If we need to work at it there s something seriously wrong with our relationship Says John Gottman a foremost relationship researcherEvery marriage demands an effort to keep it on the right track there is a constant tension between the forces that hold you together and those that can tear you apartAs with personal achievement this belief that success should not need effort robs people of the very thing they need to make their relationship thrive It s probably why so many relationships go stale because people believe that being in love means never having to do anything taxingHow do I go from fixed mindset to growth mindsetIn this section I share with you how you can adopt a growth mindset Congrats we have already taken the first step by shedding the light on these two modes of thinking Regardless of these further steps the sheer awareness of these two mindsets takes you a long way but it may not be enoughOne way which is a profoundly effective way to instill the growth mindset is studying the lives of great performers and world known figures like Michael Jordan Mozart Michelangelo etc Why you might ask The reason is that when you study the lives of such achievers you will notice a common theme in their life story and that it hard work and not talent or I While people marveled at the Piet masterpiece this is how the wizard Michelangelo respondedIf people knew how hard I worked to get my mastery it wouldn t seem so wonderful at allFor practical insights refer to Growth Mindset vs Fixed Mindset
