I picked up a new book last week called MINDSET.
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. – AMAZON
Speaking of athletes, and the reason for this post, is we got a random soccer in random places shoutout right in the beginning of the book.
I was reading this book last night and about 20-or-so pages in we got a Mia Hamm reference!
From what I have read so far, this is a really good book. Its been out for years and althought I’d never heard of it, I happened to be watching a TED talk and saw it referenced. Then I looked up her TED talk and liked it, so I bought the book. Good stuff
Mindset: The New Psychology of Success Paperback (December 26, 2007) by Carol Dweck – at Amazon for less than 10 bucks.
