This week we had the opportunity to speak with world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck  Mindset – The New Psychology of Success, in decades of research on achievement and success, she has discovered a truly groundbreaking idea–the power of our mindset.

Dweck explains why it’s not just our abilities and talent that bring us success–but whether we approach them with a fixed or growth mindset. She makes clear why praising intelligence and ability doesn’t foster self-esteem and lead to accomplishment, but may actually jeopardize success. With the right mindset, we can motivate our kids and help them to raise their grades, as well as reach our own goals–personal and professional. Dweck reveals what all great parents, teachers, CEOs, and athletes already know: how a simple idea about the brain can create a love of learning and a resilience that is the basis of great accomplishment in every area.

In the video we briefly talk about the differences between people with growth and fixed mindsets. Below is a more detailed table. The key is to recognize when you start to think, talk or act like someone with a fixed mindset and find ways to start thinking, talking and acting like someone with a growth mindset.
