    Mindset: How You Can Fulfil Your Potential shows the readers how they can build the viewpoints and attitudes necessary for personal and professional success.

    Summary Of The Book

    Each person is different, not just in their physical appearance, but in their behavior, attitude, skills, success level and other points. However, many people share similar backgrounds, knowledge, qualifications, and skills. Yet, only some of them manage to use their skills and knowledge effectively to build a good life for themselves.

    If people with similar backgrounds and talent are not all uniformly successful, what made the difference? This is the question Mindset: How You Can Fulfil Your Potential discusses in detail. The author shows that it is not just talent and knowledge that forms the ingredients for success, there is one other vital factor, the person’s mindset.

    The author identifies two different mindsets, the fixed mindset and the growth mindset. People with a fixed mindset view the skills and capabilities they possess as something engraved in stone, something fixed that they take for granted. These people also believe that their talent and gifts assure them success, without much effort. They spend their life measuring their performance and success levels. If they encounter setbacks, they view themselves as failures, and as being inadequate.

    On the other hand, there are the people with the growth mindset. They view the qualities they possess as stepping stones, as basic building blocks. They believe that whatever the abilities and skills they have, these can be developed with effort. They consider mistakes and failures as opportunities, as a chance to learn from and improve themselves. They too might be upset by setbacks, but they emerge out of these situations stronger and wiser, with the resolve to do better in the future.

    In Mindset: How You Can Fulfil Your Potential, the author illustrates the difference the growth mindset makes through many examples from her own and others’ experiences. She also uses her findings from her research studies in neuroscience and cognitive psychology to emphasize her points.

    The authors says that these two viewpoints are not set in stone. People with a fixed mindset can change their attitude and cultivate a growth mindset if they are willing to make the effort.

    Nice product

    It's a great book with hundreds of case studies and real life examples. Though if you're looking for a definitive guide and pointers on how to change your mindset, you might be dissappointed.
    On a personal level, I couldn't connect with the book since every paragraph told a new story, gave a new study, or talked about something new. I did not feel a sense of continuation and engrossed in the book. Though I can see why is it so useful and popular. And no doubt it has been useful for me too
