"Mindset is a simple idea discovered by world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck in decades of research on achievement and success—a simple idea that makes all the difference.

In a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. They spend their time documenting their intelligence or talent instead of developing them. They also believe that talent alone creates success—without effort. They’re wrong.

In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment. Virtually all great people have had these qualities."

Do you have the resilience and perseverance needed to meet goals and succeed? Dr. Angela Lee Duckworth's research indicates that a person's ability to stick with a difficult task, which she has termed "grit", is a reliable predictor of future success, much more so than relying on other factors, such as IQ score or other test scores.
