5 LESSONS DR. CAROL DWECK SHARED ON THE HPU CAMPUS
This article talks about Growth Mindset and 5 ideas behind Growth Mindset
  1. A growth mindset is empowering: having a fixed mindset is very limiting and does not allow for someone to improve themselves. 
  2. Learn what triggers your fixed mindset: even people with growth mindset haveset backsand feel like they can’t do something. 
  3. Value progress, not perfection: telling someone that they are smart isn’t the best way to encourage them. Tell someone that they worked hard to get something done is a much better way to encourage them. 
  4. Be willing to work hard: doing something worthwhile is not going to be easy. It takes a lot of hard work and fortitude to get what you want. 
  5. View failures or setbacks as learning opportunities: ask yourself, what can I learn from this. Mistakes are great learning opportunities.
This is a great article on the difference between a growth mindset and a fixed mindset and the importance of having a growth mindset.
