Problems in life can be understood better with the help of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success. This popular self-help book written by Carol Dweck leads to a better comprehension of the importance that a person’s mindset has in life. The author has furnished her psychological theory with note-worthy historical and contemporary individuals as examples.
According to the theory postulated by the author, the attitude of an individual towards life matters a lot. People with a fixed mindset do no look at life as an opportunity to learn and constantly struggle to recover from failures. On the other hand, there are the people with the growth mindset who take their failures as challenges to be overcome. They look at nature as something to be discovered continuously, one part after another.
The growth mindset, which is the premise of the author’s theory, challenges the conventional way of looking at certain notions. As stated by this book, talents and brains often get in the way of an individual’s development. Being one of the most ignored aspects, a person’s mindset is an important factor that affects personal development. The paperback, reprint edition of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success was published in 2007 by RHUS.
