Mindset by Carol Dweck

HF Parent/Teacher Book Study - Part 2, Chapters 4-6

"Character is what allows you to reach the top and stay there."

p.97, Mindset, Carol Dweck


In the chapters on Sports and Business, Dweck reinforces the idea that natural talent may help you to achieve a particular goal, but talent alone will not allow you to remain successful. Repeatedly, she gives examples of the necessity of working hard and being more interested in learning than in the domination of others.
