In the book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, Carol Dweck defines a Growth Mindset as the idea in which basic knowledge and talent are simply a starting point for success. In sum, you are the one who must pull the trigger to activate your motivation and develop it to its full potential.
Self-determination, which includes failure as a key part of the learning process, is vital to developing a growth mindset. Although it isn’t just about effort. Effort alone won’t lead to achievement of goals.
The Growth Mindset exposes a gap between the expectations you set for yourself and the personal evolution that allows you to reach your goals.
This is one of the strongest tools I’ve learned in my life. While it’s important to understand the gap between expectations and achieving goals, I know that effort is what fills that gap, and it always yields an end goal of learning and improving.
