Mindset is a belief about your ability and where it comes from. The evidence shows that your mindset is linked to what you achieve. Mindset is a belief about what the sporting world calls talent and Dweck has identified two types: fixed and growth. While both mindsets are common, both have different effects on how people learn.
“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why i succeed” – Michael Jordan
