Here's an infographic laying out the differences between the fixed and growth mindsets as described by Carol Dweck. Her book, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, has had a significant impact throughout our culture. It was also very helpful to me as I wrote my book. Dweck's ideas can change your mind in myriad ways. Adopting a growth mindset at school and everywhere else will, without a doubt, bring happiness and success to our kids.
