People have different attitudes towards success and failure. Some of them consider success as doing the best in learning and win the game because they are talented. On the other hand, failure seems as a wake-up call or something that causes you to doubt your natural talent.


What is Growth Mindset?

According to Dr. Carol Dweck, there are two basic mindsets: fixed and growth.

In Growth Mindset, people believe that most of the basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work.

People with growth mindset (relative to fixed mindset) can perform better and achieve higher outcomes.
