Psychologist Carol Dweck encourages you to consider the power of the words “not yet” as a substitute for the concept of failure. She reveals evidence that a not-yet attitude fosters healthy growth mind-sets that can propel individuals toward future success rather than paralyzing them with convictions of failure. getAbstract recommends Dweck’s astute, paradigm-changing outlook to educators, managers and anyone interested in personal growth.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why the words “not yet” foster learning while the word “fail” promotes inability,
- What advantages are inherent in a “growth mind-set,” and
- How to cultivate a growth mind-set that nurtures learning persistence and hardiness.
