Carol Dweck researches “growth mindset” — the idea that we can grow our brain’s capacity to learn and to solve problems. In this talk, she describes two ways to think about a problem that’s slightly too hard for you to solve. Are you not smart enough to solve it … or have you just not solved it yet? A great introduction to this influential field.
Carol Dweck is a pioneering researcher in the field of motivation, why people succeed (or don’t) and how to foster success.
As Carol Dweck describes it: “My work bridges developmental psychology, social psychology, and personality psychology, and examines the self-conceptions (or mindsets) people use to structure the self and guide their behavior. My research looks at the origins of these mindsets, their role in motivation and self-regulation, and their impact on achievement and interpersonal processes.”
Dweck is a professor at Stanford and the author of Mindset, a classic work on motivation and “growth mindset.” Her work is influential among educators and increasingly among business leaders as well.
This video concentrates on the important of believing certain statements. The contribution of hypnotherapy can speed and consolidate the process of believing; as long as we are convinced that what we are working towards believing is true, realistic, healthy and positive for ourselves, those statements rehearsed under hypnosis will sink into our subconscious mind in a fast and effective way.
