score? A dishonest or callous action? Being fired from a job? Being rejected? Focus on that thing. Feel all the emotions that go with it. Now put it in a growth-mindset perspective.

How can I use it as a basis for growth? Carry that with you instead. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

Many growth-minded people didn't even plan to go to the top. They got there as a result of doing what they love.

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

you aren't a failure until you start to blame. What — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

In one world, failure is about having a setback. Getting a bad grade. Losing a tournament. Getting fired. Getting rejected. It means you're not smart or talented. In the other world, failure is about not growing. Not reaching for the things you value. It means you're not fulfilling your potential. In one world, effort is a bad thing. It, like failure, means you're not smart or talented. If you were, you wouldn't need effort. In the other world, effort is what makes you smart or talented. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Daniel H. Pink

Mindset: The New Psychology of Success BY CAROL DWECK — Daniel H. Pink

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

But does a growth mindset make people good just at getting their own way? Often negotiations require people to understand and try to serve the other person's interests as well. Ideally, at the end of a negotiation, both parties feel their needs have been met. In a study with a more challenging negotiation task, those with a growth mindset were able to get beyond initial failures by constructing a deal that addressed both parties' underlying interests. So, not only do those with a growth mindset gain more lucrative outcomes for themselves, but, more important, they also come up with more creative solutions that confer benefits all around. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

When you enter a mindset, you enter a new world. In one world
the world of fixed traits
success is about proving you're smart or talented. Validating yourself. In the other
the world of changing qualities
it's about stretching yourself to learn something new. Developing yourself. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

With the threat of failure looming, students with the growth mindset set instead mobilized their resources for learning. They told us that they, too, sometimes felt overwhelmed, but their response was to dig in and do what it takes. They were like George Danzig. Who? George Danzig was a graduate student in math at Berkeley. One day, as usual, he rushed in late to his math class and quickly copied the two homework problems from the blackboard. When he later went to do them, he found them very difficult, and it took him several days of hard work to crack them open and solve them. They turned out not to be homework problems at all. They were two famous math problems that had never been solved. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

In fact, every word and action can send a message. It tells children - or students, or athletes - how to think about themselves. It can be a fixed-mindset message that says: You have permanent traits and I'm judging them. Or it can be a growth-mindset message that says: You are a developing person and I am interested in your development. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Daniel H. Pink

As Carol Dweck says, Effort is one of the things that gives meaning to life. Effort means you care about something, that something is important to you and you are willing to work for it. It would be an impoverished existence if you were not willing to value things and commit yourself to working toward them. — Daniel H. Pink

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

Even in the growth mindset, failure can be a painful experience. But it doesn't define you. It's a problem to be faced, dealt with, and learned from. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

No matter what your ability is, effort is what ignites that ability and turns it into accomplishment. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

Think about what you want to look back and say. Then choose your mindset. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

I looked for themes and underlying principles across lectures," and "I went over mistakes until I was certain I understood them." They were studying to learn, not just to ace the test.

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

Who Says Elephants Can't Dance? — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

So what should we praise? The effort, the strategies, the doggedness and persistence, the grit people show, the resilience that they show in the face of obstacles, that bouncing back when things go wrong and knowing what to try next. So I think a huge part of promoting a growth mindset in the workplace is to convey those values of process, to give feedback, to reward people engaging in the process, and not just a successful outcome. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

to see failure not as a sign of stupidity but as lack of experience and skill. Your — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

the major factor in whether people achieve expertise "is not some fixed prior ability, but purposeful engagement. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

A no-effort relationship is a doomed relationship, not a great relationship. It takes work to communicate accurately and it takes work to expose and resolve conflicting hopes and beliefs. It doesn't mean there is no "they lived happily ever after," but it's more like "they worked happily ever after. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

The more depressed people with the growth mindset felt, the more they took action to confront their problems, the more they made sure to keep up with their schoolwork, and the more they kept up with their lives. The worse they felt, the more determined they became! — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

The students with growth mindset completely took charge of their learning and motivation. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

It is not always people who start out the smartest who end up the smartest. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

Failure is information-we label it failure, but it's more like, 'This didn't work, I'm a problem solver, and I'll try something else.' — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

What's more, it's not as though the fixed mindset wants to leave gracefully. If the fixed mindset has been controlling your internal monologue, it can say some pretty strong thing to you ... The fixed mindset once offered you a refuge from that very feeling, and it offers it to you again.
Don't take it. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

The fixed- and growth-mindset groups started with the same ability, but as time went on the growth-mindset groups clearly outperformed the fixed-mindset ones. And this difference became ever larger the longer the groups worked. Once again, those with the growth mindset profited from their mistakes and feedback far more than the fixed-mindset people. But what was even more interesting was how the groups functioned. The members of the growth-mindset groups were much more likely to state their honest opinions and openly express their disagreements as they communicated about their management decisions. Everyone was part of the learning process. For the fixed-mindset groups - with their concern about who was smart or dumb or their anxiety about disapproval for their ideas - that open, productive discussion did not happen. Instead, it was more like groupthink. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

Not only weren't they discouraged by failure, they didn't even think they were failing. They thought they were learning. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

Do people with this mindset believe that anyone can be anything, that anyone with proper motivation or education can become Einstein or Beethoven? No, but they believe that a person's true potential is unknown (and unknowable); that it's impossible to foresee what can be accomplished with years of passion, toil, and training. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

Studies show that people are terrible at estimating their abilities. Recently, we set out to see who is most likely to do this. Sure, we found that people greatly misestimated their performance and their ability. But it was those with the fixed mindset who accounted for almost all the inaccuracy. The people with the growth mindset were amazingly accurate. When you think about it, this makes sense. If, like those with the growth mindset, you believe you can develop yourself, then you're open to accurate information about your current abilities, even if it's unflattering. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

Finding #2: Those with the growth mindset found setbacks motivating. They're informative. They're a wake-up call. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

Fixed mindset makes you concerned with how you'll be judged; the growth mindset makes you concerned with improving. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

If parents want to give their children a gift, the best thing they can do is to teach their children to love challenges, be intrigued by mistakes, enjoy effort, and keep on learning. That way, their children don't have to be slaves of praise. They will have a lifelong way to build and repair their own confidence. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

It's for you to decide whether change is right for you right now. Maybe it is, maybe it isn't. But either way keep the growth mindset in your thoughts then when you bump up against obstacles you can turn to it, it will always be there for you showing you a path into the future. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

Fixed ability that needs to be proven, and a changeable ability that can be developed through learning. That — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

All of these people had character. None of them thought they were special people, born with the right to win. They were people who worked hard, who learned how to keep their focus under pressure, and who stretched beyond their ordinary abilities when they had to. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

Are there situations where you get stupid - where you disengage your intelligence? Next time you're in one of those situations, get yourself into a growth mindset - think about learning and improvement, not judgment - and hook it back up. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

When people are in a growth mindset, the stereotype doesn't disrupt their performance. The growth mindset takes the teeth out of the stereotype and makes people better able to fight back. They don't believe in permanent inferiority. And if they are behind - well, then they'll work harder and try to catch up. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

What can I learn from this? What will I do next time I'm in this situation? — Carol S. Dweck

(Seth Abrams) — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

Test scores and measures of achievement tell you where a student is, but they don't tell you where a student could end up. — Carol S. Dweck

Carol Dweck Quotes By Carol S. Dweck

This low-effort syndrome is often seen as a way that adolescents assert their independence from adults, but it is also a way that students with the fixed mindset protect themselves. They view the adults as saying, "Now we will measure you and see what you've got." And they are answering, "No you won't." John Holt, the great educator, says that these are the games all human beings play when others are sitting in judgment of them. — Carol S. Dweck
