About this Episode

Today on the podcast, we discuss the book Mindset by Carol S. Dweck, where she explores the two mindsets and how each one affects the way you live and perceive your life. While possessing many layers, the fixed mindset is essentially when you believe that your qualities are carved in stone Whether you are naturally good at something or not, you will not work at improving yourself. In contrast to this is the growth mindset, which Carol says is “based on the belief that your basic qualities are things you can cultivate through your efforts, your strategies, and help from others. Although people may differ in every which way - in their initial talents and aptitudes, interests or temperaments - everyone can change and grown through application and experience…. the passion for stretching yourself and sticking to it, even (or especially) when it’s not going well, is the hallmark of a growth mindset”.
