I have posted before on the power of “mindset. It is a perspective on the mind proposed by Stanford Professor, Carol Dweck. It is important because of its power. One either had a “fixed” or “growth” mindset. Brain pickings gets int the difference. And here is a provocative idea.
At the heart of what makes the “growth mindset” so winsome, Dweck found, is that it creates a passion for learning rather than a hunger for approval.
Do you know people who constantly seek out approval? have you ever wondered why?
