The Mindset for Long-term Success

power of mindsetDr. Carol Dweck is one of the world’s leading psychologists at Stanford University. From her 20 years of research, she explains how our mindset has a huge impact on the quality of life and determine our success. Dr. Dweck’s studies posit that there are two basic mindsets that control how most people see themselves.

Those with a “fixed mindset” assume intelligence, character, and creative potential are unchangeable attributes written in stone since birth — that they cannot be modified in any meaningful way. They further assume that success is simply a result of this inherent talent, and as a result, they often avoid failure in order to maintain an aura of infallibility.

Those with a “growth mindset” have a much more malleable view on success. They do not view failure as a reflection of their ability, but rather as a starting point for experimentation and testing of ideas. Their main advantage is in treating unsuccessful attempts simply as another data point — “This didn’t work out, but I eliminated one option and will now pursue the next.”

This is a profound finding. It also answers my long-term quest about finding why some people refuse to learn even though it can be life-changing. The main reason is – “fixed mindset”.

Dr. Dwick put up an interesting test to determine your mind-set. Watch her remarkable video on Youtube.
