Mindset (2006) discusses the differences between people with a fixed mindset versus those with a growth mindset. Our mindset determines the way we deal with tough situations and setbacks as well as our willingness to deal with and improve ourselves. This book demonstrates how we can achieve our goals by changing our mindset.

“Mindset sheds light on how our beliefs about our own abilities and talent influence how we learn and which paths we take in life. Understanding more about the concepts of a fixed and growth mindset helps me to reflect on my thoughts more profoundly, and changes how I think and act. I found this BiB very inspiring and spot on.”
