Mindset- What is it?

Mindset is your beliefs about yourself and your basic qualities – your intelligence, talents and personality.  Carol Dweck, a psychologist, and research on achievement and success has found that your mindset, your beliefs about your basic qualities, make all the difference in your life.

There are two mindsets:

Fixed mindset- traits are just givens. You possess a certain amount of intelligence and talent that is unchanging throughout your life. You better excel at whatever you do naturally and you have to constantly prove your capabilities.

Growth mindset- your traits/qualities are just the starting point. Through work and dedication, you can develop your traits and qualities to even higher levels. You start out with one level of intelligence; but can develop to even higher levels.
