The quality of our thoughts dictates the quality of our life. Our minds constantly process reality based on certain established patterns. According to their personal mental framework, people understand life and create images about themselves and those surrounding them. Psychologist Carol Dweck has identified, through years of studies and observations, a concept that helped her understand how people think and how they perceive reality. This concept is called mindset, and according to the research, there are two different mindsets that people build their lives upon. The fixed mindset is designed around the belief that most abilities, skills and qualities are innate, permanent and they cannot be developed. The growth mindset believes that constant learning and improving is the only real path for people who want to fulfill their potential. Effort and commitment are essential for success. While not everyone can become a genius, the potential each person has remains unknown as long as the person does not act with dedication towards growing and exploring their capabilities.
