Because of you Ms. Dweck, I'm finished with decades spent hiding, procrastinating, and clinging to my long-ago title of smartest girl in the class and watching opportunity after opportunity pass me by while cowering in the fear of being "discovered".
Thank you are two words that do not begin to express my gratitude and relief for what you've dared to share. My husband has been encouraging me with much of the same kind of principles for years but i was too defensive for it to ever really click for me... until now. It took someone removed from my life to speak into my heart and explain before I could hear it.
I can hardly wait to go to bed so I wake up tomorrow morning to tackle new challenges, learn, grow and become smarter.... asking questions and having fun all along the way!
Ha! Take that fear and oppression, your reign is over! Hello bright, new, wonderful world!
if you want to improve your station in life read this book. It is one of the single most influential books I have read on achieving what you want in life and it's a very simple concept. has changed the way I will raise my children and the way I will work I am very grateful to have read it.
l would recommend this book to apply the lessons taught to your everyday living. It was well narrated and hammered home the necessity of applying the growth mindset in every facet of your life.
Don't get this. I thought it was going to be a great book. The premise was sound. after the first chapters it was the same thing over and over. The stories were redundant and the impact was missing. Do not recommend it at all.
Good book. Great concept. Excessive anecdotes. Tons of take-aways. If you want the Keys without the stories and repetition (8 hrs+), look for the notes. Or a shorter version/summary of the book. Very knowledgeable author, though.
Loved the thought provoking questions written in a way to help the reader "pulse check" through the book.
Only suggestion, felt like too many scenarios were covered with heavy emphasis on sports persons and kids.
I didnt finish listening to whole thing because I felt as though the author repeats herself over and over.
I really liked the information about mindset and what it is, how it manifests , and how to know which you are. But unless you are a parent looking to help a child you won't find a lot about the steps necessary to change your own mindset. I wish I had had this information years ago. My own kids would have benefited greatly. I would definitely recommend this to any parent.
