From a book called ‘Mindset’ by Carol Dweck – about the shift from ‘Fixed’ mindet to ‘Growth’ mindset:

“Fixed Mindset” =  Critical feedback is ‘bad’ and being challenged is something to avoid, setbacks are a sign to give up or be discouraged, and your abilities are somehow hardwired and are unlikely to change.

“Growth” Mindset = Critical feedback and challenge are great to invite as a way to help you see how to grow, setbacks are simply signposts about what needs more work, and your abilities are constantly evolving.
