Stanford Psychologist Carol Dweck Reveals the Key Difference Between a Fixed Mindset vs a Growth Mindset

March 20, 2024

Carol Dweck sheds light on the difference between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset in her book, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success.

“In one world, failure is about having a setback. Getting a bad grade. Losing a tournament. Getting fired. Getting rejected. It means you’re not smart or talented.

In the other world, failure is about not growing. Not reaching for the things you value. It means you’re not fulfilling your potential.

In one world, effort is a bad thing. It, like failure, means you’re not smart or talented. If you were, you wouldn’t need effort.

In the other world, effort is what makes you smart or talented.”

– Carol Dweck, Author of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success
