Mindset

By Carol S. Dweck

If you haven't heard of the growth and fixed mindsets, prepare to be blown away by this read. Carol Dweck opened my eyes to several fixed mindsets I had developed over the years, from things as silly as eating seafood to more serious like public speaking. 

If you're serious about growing, this book will pinpoint areas that you can start in right away. In short, we have to do away with the fixed mindset and adopt the growth mindset in all we do. Then and only then will we experience new echelons of personal development and maturity. 

Believing your qualities are carved in stone—the fixed mindset—creates an urgency to prove yourself over and over.
— Carol S. Dweck
In the growth mindset, the hand you’re dealt is just the starting point for development. It’s based on the belief that your basic qualities are things you can cultivate through your efforts.
