Product Description

Published USA, 2006
This book teaches a simple belief about yourself, a belief that guides every part of your life. Much of what you think of as your personality actually grows out of this mindset. Much of what may be preventing you from fulfilling your potential grows out of it. Carol Dweck, a psychologist at Stanford University, makes clear why praising our children's intelligence and ability actually doesn't foster self-esteem and lead to accomplishment but may actually jeopardize success. With the right mindset, we can motivate our children and help them to improve in school as well as reach our own goals, personal and professional.
