    I always got told, that I'm a fast learner, so watching this video I realized why I fear bigger things, things that take a while to master. Like playing the guitar or drawing. Those things take time. You cannot master them within minutes or a day. So when I do not learn them fast, iI feel like a loser, not good enough, demotivated by the task. Thank you for making me realizing that! Time to change that!

      Lucky you! I always got told that I was stupid...... even when I was a good student. It was emotionally traumatizing.... and I ended up being very much affected. But, now as an adult, I am slowly cutting off family and finally feeling like I can grow myself without being hindered.

      Yes, that sometimes happens to me too. I would love to have such incredible skills at playing guitar like Estas Tone, but it’s clear that it takes time to master. but in the process of mastering this skill, i found out that I can actually have fun while taking that barre ^_^ (It is a challenge to make it sound, but I’m almost there!) And that’s absolutely because of my teacher. He always says after he teaches something new to me „It will sound awfully in your performance for the first couple of weeks. Take your time, stick to it, play everyday this piece and it will get better.“
      But how is it going for you? Do you notice changes in your behavior? Have you challenged the guitar/drawing or something else?

      Yes, and learning something that takes a long time to master also helps in developing a growth mindset. They go hand-in-hand, as without a growth mindset you'll just get on with something else.

    This was awesome!! Favorite part was adding the word "yet" to negative mindset sentences. My daughter gets frustrated easily (she has her Mommy's inherent temperament that can lean towards developing a fixed mindset...I think), and she will often yell, "Uhhhggg!! I can't do this!" And I would always reply, "Don't say the word 'can't'. Say "I have to keep on trying." Which would work sometimes, rarely... But now I want to try getting her in the habit of saying, "I can't do this yet." Thanks for the great video!

    Starting reading this and only on the third chapter and a bell went off. Love it. Been reading or listening to lots of spiritual awareness "teachings" or insights for past 8-9 years, so I consider this another wonderful tool. You may not get the context of the video w/o reading some of the book, but highly recommend it. Give it a shot. You can change you're life through your thinking but like anything it takes some work and reversing years of momentum built up of making you think otherwise.

    before i know growth mindset, i was living in other's eyes, i was so worried about making mistakes and not looking smart. Now by contrast, i am confident and see every failure as opportunities to learn and grow, i don't care what people see me, i have firmer self-assertiveness and self-esteem which is great!

    Shame is 100% the root of children developing fixed mindsets, and adults inflicting them on their children. The most amazing thing is though that adults can switch right out of even a lifetime of shame induced fixed mindset beliefs if they are willing to trust the process and forgive those who, in their own hurt and shame, projected that onto them. Really amazing stuff!

    This talk is giving me vocabulary to use to describe work environments! Around the 25:00 pt, she is responding to a Q about how to change the culture of a biz from fixed to growth. Some of her suggestions go deep into the eval and reward system of a biz. Reminded me of a brief snit with a supervisor at a previous job. He cc'd me an email he wrote to my Boss, basically about my messy desk. He had been standing right there, he could have talked with ME about it. The tone of the email was really mean. It made me angry! Thankfully, I did not respond immediately. The next morning, I replied via email to all. I apologized for my 'messy' desk. Then I pointed out that it was messy because I was WORKING on 5-6 different projects and that I was usually very good about putting things away before I left each night. I reminded them all of my recent effectiveness and good reviews. And how I had stepped up on recent weekends to help other teams in the company complete projects on time. In hindsight, and after seeing this talk, I think that supervisor was quite 'FIXED'. Perhaps tallying his personal points? And I was more 'Growth' and teamwork. Perhaps that is why we sometimes clashed? Hmmmm?

    love her argument. Ordered her book, looking forward to reading it. We are raising literally a bunch of wimps and doing more bad than good by constantly praising kids. When one hears they are "smart", why would they challenge themselves to become even smarter? Reinforcement is good, no doubt, but praising a kid for doing nothing more than doing what every other kid is doing imo, is strongly hindering their ability to raise above everyone else and to challenge themselves. This doesn't just apply to kids but to adults as well. Too many people are using the "good enough" approach and mindset which is why you see so many people living average lives. People don't realize what more they can achieve financially, spiritually, their health, their relationships with others, if they were to adopt a growth mindset.

    i underestimated the importance of environment and didn’t know about the relationship between the praise a mother gives to their 1 2 3 year old and the child’s mindset and desire for challenge 5 yrs later i think it just adds another layer of importance to improving inequities in housing, education, etc. but besides that i really appreciated how she said this is life long and a journey and even she needs to continually monitor those triggers - seeing mistakes and setbacks as opportunities for learning and growth instead of indicators of your worth, seeing someone better than you as an opportunity to go learn from them instead of comparison, when met with choices take the more challenging one and not the safe one

    An encouraging talk.
    Eduardo Briceno works with Carol Dweck and they have been
    part of the Mindset movement. I am currently reading Dweck's book on Mindset
    and I am currently finding the time to reflect on my own mindset in the
    classroom as a teacher. Am I providing my students learning opportunities that
    stretch them in ways they can imagine (Drama)? I have the unique opportunity to
    provide students with a range of roles that they would never play in everyday
    life and this in turn allows them to consider new thoughts and physical
    behaviours that they previously did not know they were capable of.
    Reflection and feedback is an important element of the process to help them grow. The
    suggestions of both peers as and teacher feedback allows the student in turn to
    reflect back on the feedback given and apply and alter their performance to
    stretch and grow.

    I see growth mindset vs fixed mindset as a subsection of thinking positively vs thinking negatively. It seems like if you were to think of your "not yets" as an opportunity to improve then you will be more successful as opposed to thinking of your "failures" as a bad thing which makes you not want to try anymore or be less motivated. So, just be more positive and see the good in a situation and spin a "not yet" moment to seem like more of a challenge to improve oneself.

    24:40 Message should come from the top - *value system* - on taking on challenges, on rewarding reasonable risk, teamwork, sharing information (rather than hoarding), performance evaluations that speak to growth and contribution to the company, salary increases that take into account if the person took on challenges, helped other people improve, were they a good team player.
    40:50 Fixed mindset is better in 1) Sexual orientation (Gender pronouns & sex changes = victim mentality), 2) Aging. Both are better for excepting reality rather than delusion. *When it comes to skills areas, a growth mindset is almost always more advantageous.*

    We are not very well able to control what we want (seem smart or be smarter). This is the same psychological safety that good group norms give rise to.

    I'm not sure that telling someone that they are smart isn't a good idea. I think letting someone know that they are capable and smart or good at something is a net possitive.
    I think what is missing is telling that person that they are resilient. That no matter what the world thows at you that you are able, capable, and smart enough to figure it out.
    That's my approach and it works well for me.

      We are not very well able to control what we want (seem smart or be smarter). This is the same psychological safety that good group norms give rise to. The lack of competition in the group, trust and attention to each other are inseparable elements of efficiency. So just one mood for growth does not work

    We have people who has different agendas in what they want to get out of the teachings, one tries to bring enlightenment to the mainstream. They will take the information and turn it around to support the wrong things. Something we watched that religion brought to our life. Where knowledge is knowledge, it does not matter where it comes from, but many was train not to look at but only one place, which is the one the promotors putting out. Is one of the reason wars play a part in human life.

    While I really like and agree with what Carol Dweck says I feel she sidestepped the question around raw talent. While everyone can improve their abilities, it is also true that our upper limits on growth in various areas are limited by factors that are not in our control. Being able to recognize that is important. Not everyone can be a professional basket ball player if they just try hard enough. Same goes for being like Einstein. Not everyone could have come up with the theory of relativity if they just tried hard enough. Being able to recognize this is important because as a person gets better and better in a specialized area, the gains become smaller and smaller. It can become more advantageous to the individual and society for that individual branch out and improve on other areas in comparison to focusing on a single skill in an effort to achieve something that might be literally beyond his or her capability.
    On a personal level I experienced this somewhat in my education but also in computer gaming. Computer gaming is easier to explain so I will do so here. It is a well know fact that somewhere in your late teens and early twenties your reaction speed is at it's peek performance. I'm past my prime by a good 10 years. There is no possible way, with any amount of training or dedication that I could ever beat someone in there prime in a video game that's almost exclusively based on reaction time. It would be a waste of my time to try to become the best video game player at the expense of all the other skills I could be improving.

    Okay.. I'm over 50 and I have closed my mindset regarding the belief did I am "too old" to learn and become proficient at a new language. As I'm getting older, I find it difficult to even find words sometimes. Am I wrong? Can anyone it there tell me they have become fluent at a new language over 50? That said. I took calculus at age 50 and got a "B". After failing algebra at the age of 13, my mother informed me that I didn't have the intelligence to try again and she refused to let me retake the class. somehow I manage to graduate college, but I never went past Algebra 2. In my mids 40s, I still want so sure I could ever go further in math because of my intelligence.. But year by year, bit by bit, I realized calculus isn't about a high IQ. It is about learning steps and roles, then applying them.. that is it!!. It isn't difficult at all. I am not so convinced about a new language though

    Don't know why she would diminish the concept of what self-esteem is, the way she puts it is more of labeling a person, people with good self-esteem correlates exactly with every definition she might have for someone with a growth mindset.

    is there a connection between fixed and growth mindset and cptsd? my children and I have cptsd from years of domestic abuse and now that we are out and safe we seem to all swing between growth and fixed mindset in our individual lives and it even changes from day to day and by subject

    • Liza van der Merwe

      Hi Melissa
      Your hunch is valid. However the relationship is a correlation, not a causation. Being exposure to trauma and abuse does not lead to a fixed mindset. People do not walk around either with the one or the other. We all exhibit both day to day and subject to the topic at hand as you say.
      The beauty of mindset is that we can recognise it, name it, embrace our humanity, and change it.
      A trauma informed counsellor can support you on the journey to growth. Wanting to grow, wanting to heal, wanting to be whole.
      Facing challenges and obstacles we realise that we are more resilient than we thought possible.

    I disagree. If I'm deciding my life based on what people think about me then thinking smart will act negatively but at the same time if I think myself as smart and don't worry about what people think of me then I'll try to do things smartly and growth mindset supports it and gives me an opportunity to challenge myself. Also, if I think I'm not smart, every failure will strengthen that belief of not being a smart person and end up feeling miserable and stupid and stop challenging myself. The approach is important. I mean think about it, if you don't think you're smart, will you even try to do anything creative, better and awesome?

      Growth mindset people don't think in terms of smartness or failure. They think in terms of learning. They know what they are capable of and what they are not. This helps them learn more
