“This book has taught me that a Growth Mindset is based on the belief that your skills are malleable and can be cultivated through your efforts, strategies and help from others. It is understanding that failure is merely an action, and not an identity. It is learning to embrace the challenges, and not fear the risks. It is having high standards for yourself, but also having a means to reach those standards. It is maintaining lifestyle changes to give you more fulfillment, rather than quitting when things get hard.”
“After reading Mindset by Dr. Carol Dweck, I have a new level of understanding around the idea of having a growth mindset. Before studying the subject matter, I had this preconceived notion of what it meant to be growth-minded and it was correlated to perfection. This was so far from the truth, but it gave me a chance to see how much I have grown.”
