Do you ever look at someone successful and get discouraged? They must have been born brilliant at public speaking or playing sports! Carol Dweck turns this premise on its head in one of the most important books I have read.
Having a growth mindset means one believes that intelligence is malleable and can be changed through hard work and perseverance. The message is simple at its core but has strong ripple effects – those great leaders you look up to weren’t born that way, it took failure, learning and a load of mistakes to get to where they are today. The important thing is to learn from failure and realize that it doesn’t define you.
