EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The updated edition of the book that has changed millions of lives with its insights into the growth mindset. After decades of research, world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D., discovered a simple but groundbreaking idea: the power of mindset. In this brilliant book, she shows how success in school, work, sports, the arts, and almost every area of human endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how we think about our talents and abilities. People with a fixed mindset—those who believe that abilities are fixed—are less likely to flourish than those with a growth mindset—those who believe that abilities can be developed. Mindset reveals how great parents, teachers, managers, and athletes can put this idea to use to foster outstanding accomplishment. In this edition, Dweck offers new insights into her now famous and broadly embraced concept. She introduces a phenomenon she calls false growth mindset and guides people toward adopting a deeper, truer growth mindset. She also expands the mindset concept beyond the individual, applying it to the cultures of groups and organizations. With the right mindset, you can motivate those you lead, teach, and love—to transform their lives and your own. Praise for Mindset “A good book is one whose advice you believe. A great book is one whose advice you follow. This is a book that can change your life, as its ideas have changed mine.”—Robert J. Sternberg, co-author of Teaching for Wisdom, Intelligence, Creativity, and Success “An essential read for parents, teachers [and] coaches . . . as well as for those who would like to increase their own feelings of success and fulfillment.”—Library Journal (starred review) “Everyone should read this book.”—Chip Heath and Dan Heath, authors of Made to Stick “One of the most influential books ever about motivation.”—Po Bronson, author of NurtureShock “If you manage people or are a parent (which is a form of managing people), drop everything and read Mindset.”—Guy Kawasaki, author of The Art of the Start 2.0

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

World-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck, in decades of research on achievement and success, 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.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

A mindset is a fixed mental attitude that predetermines a person’s responses to (and interpretations of) situations. Essentially, our mindset determines our behaviour. Developing the best mindset is the way you can learn something new, adopt new information, alter your beliefs and act accordingly. It’s important to adjust our mindsets to survive and thrive in the real world. Experts agree that our mindset is not a result of nature or nurture, genes or environment. There’s a constant give and take between each: the physical and the mental. As eminent American neuroscientist Gilbert Gottlieb puts it, not only do genes and environment cooperate as we develop, but genes actually require input from the environment to work properly. You have the means to shift your mindset to create the life or attitude that you want and need. A fixed mindset will cloud your judgment. You’ll avoid challenges, you’ll give up when things aren’t going right and you’ll think that you’re not good enough. It’s the belief that you should be terrific instantly and that you can’t improve or get better by effort. But, change is possible. It isn’t easy – but it’s not hugely hard either. The first step is to start and be aware of how your mindset is holding you back.

The right mindset can make you three times more likely to get the job you want-and even less likely to lose it later. What does it take to get and keep the job you want? Ninety-six percent of employers argue that it's not just about having the right skills for the position- it's all about the right mindset. As two leading experts on the subject, Reed and Stoltz know what employers really want from the people they hire and keep. According to their extensive and globally acclaimed research, there is a specific set of mental traits that will make you exponentially more desirable to potential employers, and more likely to succeed and enjoy your job once you're hired. This "3G Mindset" is: ? Global-the openness and big-picture perspective to compete on a global scale in any job ? Good-a positive force with an unwavering moral compass ? Grit-the tenacity and resilience to thrive on adversity The authors reveal why employers are three times more likely to hire people with the right mindset over those who are more qualified on paper. This book provides an actionable approach for both assessing and developing these essential traits.

You may not know now but as you read on you will find out EXACTLY just how quickly you can be in-tune with how your mind really works! * * *LIMITED TIME OFFER! (Regular $11.99) * * * Dear Reader, Have you always wondered what is ON YOUR MIND and how it can help you with your daily lives? THE FACT IS: MINDSET is a simple idea that makes all the difference. Learning how to apply GROWTH MINDSET into your life We all want to be productive and motivated in our business, education, and sports; and even personal life. Mindset (A Preview) * The Growth & Fixed Mindset - Instead of using the words 'good' and 'poor', psychologists have favored the labels 'growth' & 'fixed' which better describe the differences between the two mindsets. The growth mindset, as you might expect, helps you grow by enabling you to face challenges, take risks, accept personal responsibility & change, deal with criticism and perhaps most importantly, work hard. By contrast the 'fixed' mindset only allows you to stay as you are, by undermining your confidence and limiting your willingness to try new things and take risks. * The Basis of the Growth & Fixed Mindset - All too many self-help guides of various flavors and varieties feel that it is simply enough to state what style of thinking and outlook is good for you, with no path or map on how to make a transition. This guide vows not to make this mistake and for good reason; changing a fixed mindset towards a growth mindset is easily achievable if you follow several simple rules. This chapter will explore the key ideas you need to understand in order to start developing a growth mindset. * How to Enter the Growth Mindset? - There are numerous ways to build a growth mindset. The following methods other people have found useful, but feel free to create your own, as long as they work for you. * Keeping on Track - In medicine one of the largest problems doctors face is that people stop taking their medication too early. Antibiotics or other drugs are prescribed to a patient to treat an illness and when initially taken these cause the patient to improve. However, due to the fact that they are feeling better, the patient then stops taking the medication before they are ready, causing their illness to grow again once more.
