New test for ‘growth mindset’, the theory that anyone who tries can succeed

Can watching short films featuring actors impersonating Charles Darwin and Albert Einstein improve your brainpower? Researchers working in 100 British primary schools will try to find out from September, thanks to a £290,000 grant from the Education Endowment Foundation to test whether instructing children aged 10 and 11 in “growth mindset”, an idea from American psychology, can improve results.

“Growth mindset” is the name given by psychologist Carol Dweck to the idea that intelligence can develop, and that effort leads to success. Her influential research, which has been lapped up by thousands of teachers in the UK, divides people according to what Dweck calls implicit theories of intelligence. If we think talent or braininess is innate and something we cannot change, we have a “fixed mindset” (blamed by Dweck for the Enron scandal, among other ills). If we believe our performance at school and in life can be changed by our attitude, and particularly by how we cope with setbacks, we have a “growth mindset”. The British study, called Changing Mindsets, will test its effectiveness using videos and quizzes developed by education company Positive Edge in year 6 classrooms, while psychologists will train teachers for one day.

“Expectations change neurology; if you have low expectations of a child their brain starts to function worse,” says Sherria Hoskins, the Portsmouth University professor leading the study. “We’re not saying you can turn a child who is struggling at maths into a maths genius. The message is about getting better.”

What Will You Do Quotes

“The only way to find true happiness is to risk being completely cut open.” Chuck Palahniuk

“Everyone has a ‘risk muscle.’ You keep it in shape by trying new things. If you don’t, it atrophies. Make a point of using it at least once a day.” Roger von Oech

“Our lives improve only when we take chances, and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves.” Walter Anderson

In the Name of Love

Elites embrace the “do what you love” mantra.

But it devalues work and hurts workers.

“Do what you love. Love what you do.”

The command is framed and perched in a living room that can only be described as “well-curated.” A picture of this room appeared first on a popular design blog and has been pinned, tumbl’d, and liked thousands of times. Though it introduces exhortations to labor into a space of leisure, the “do what you love” living room is the place all those pinners and likers long to be.what will you do

There’s little doubt that “do what you love” (DWYL) is now the unofficial work mantra for our time. The problem with DWYL, however, is that it leads not to salvation but to the devaluation of actual work—and more importantly, the dehumanization of the vast majority of laborers.

Superficially, DWYL is an uplifting piece of advice, urging us to ponder what it is we most enjoy doing and then turn that activity into a wage-generating enterprise. But why should our pleasure be for profit? And who is the audience for this dictum?

Lessons for Achieving Phenomenal Business Success

January was a quiet month for me. Literally.

Starting work again after the holiday season meant that I had to leave behind the voices of three females I had come to hear so much of over the festive period. Their names? Elsa, Anna and Taylor.

Like many others, I wasn’t spared from the phenomena of Frozen and Taylor Swift. And the strange thing is I’m not complaining – I’ve come to enjoy them as well.phenomenal or nothing

This led me to think about what elevated Frozen and Taylor Swift from being merely successful to being top of their game. Let’s look at some numbers.

“Frozen” has earned $1.2 billion worldwide, becoming the fifth-highest-grossing film of all time and by far the highest-grossing animation. That’s not to mention two Academy Awards, a BAFTA, a Golden Globe, a soundtrack that has garnered more than a million album sales and seven million Spotify streams, official YouTube video views in the hundreds of millions, and a DVD that became Amazon’s best-selling children’s film of all time based on advance orders alone.

Taylor Swift is the only artist in 2014 to sell over a million albums in the first week of its release (the fastest-selling album in the United States in a dozen years). She is the only female artist to replace herself on the top of the music charts with back to back number one hits…

Let Go of Control: How to Learn the Art of Surrender

“If we are facing in the right direction, all we have to do is keep on walking.” ~Proverb

I’ve noticed that things go much more smoothly when I give up control—when I allow them to happen instead of making them happen. Unfortunately, I’m terrible at this.

Although I’m much better than I used to be, I’m a bit of a control freak. I often use perfectly good energy trying to plan, predict, and prevent things that I cannot possibly plan, predict, or prevent.never surrender

For example, I wonder if my baby is going to get a proper nap when we travel and, if not, just how crabby she might be. I think through her travel and napping patterns, attempting to figure out exactly what we’re up against, as if her sleep is something I can control.

I also think about the weather a lot when out-of-town guests are visiting. I spend my already-limited time planning for every possible weather/mood combination when considering our itinerary.

Like most humans I know, I spend a lot of time in business that’s not mine. The baby’s business, my friends’ business, Mother Nature’s business.

As a recovering control freak, there are three things I know for sure about trying to control things:

1. We try to control things because of what we think will happen if we don’t.

In other words, control is rooted in fear.

2. Control is also a result of being attached to a specific outcome—an outcome we’re sure is best for us, as if we always know what’s best.

When we trust that we’re okay no matter what circumstances come our way, we don’t need to micro-manage the universe. We let go. And we open ourselves to all sorts of wonderful possibilities that aren’t there when we’re attached to one “right” path…

Discipline Quotes

“Competing is exciting and winning is exhilarating, but the true prize will always be the self-knowledge and understanding that you have gained along the way.” Sebastian Coe

“Talent without discipline is like an octopus on roller skates. There’s plenty of movement, but you never know if it’s going to be forward, backwards, or sideways.” H. Jackson Brown, Jr

“Nothing is more harmful to the service, than the neglect of discipline; for that discipline, more than numbers, gives one army superiority over another.” George Washington

Self-Discipline – The Foundation for Success

How To Develop Self-Discipline

Start with baby steps. No process takes place overnight. Just as it takes time to build muscle, so does it take time to develop self-discipline. The more you train and build it, the stronger you become. In exercise, if you try to do too much at once, you could injure yourself and have a setback. Likewise, take it one step at a time in building self-discipline. So, begin by making the decision to go forward and learning what it takes to get there.

Learn what motivates you and what your bad triggers are. You can begin by learning about yourself! Sometimes it is very difficult to fight off urges and cravings, so know the areas where your resistance is low and how to avoid those situations. If you know you can’t resist cake, fries, or other temptations – stay away from them. Do not have them around to lure you in moments of weakness. discipline If you also know that putting pressure on yourself does not work for you, then set yourself up in an environment that encourages the building of self-discipline rather than one that sabotages it. Remove the temptations and surround yourself with soothing and encouraging items such as motivating slogans and pictures of what you want to achieve.

How He Did It (Again): Bouncing Back From Failure As An Entrepreneur

We can all learn from the rise – and fall – and rise again of self-made entrepreneur Christopher King. King is the founder of Cruzach, Inc. a holding company comprised of a dozen businesses including a partnership with the Mondavi family for a wine that retails for $799 a bottle and the executive production of a feature film, “What Lola Wants,” starring “Once Upon a Time In Wonderland” actress Sophie Lowe. I learned about King from a mutual friend and felt his advice on entrepreneurship would be beneficial to all.rise again

At age 36, King has no MBA (in fact no degree at all) and has made his fortune from the ground up. Twice. King registered his first company at age 17 and made his first million by age 26. But even more impressive is that after losing everything in the economic crash of 2008, he picked himself up and did it again: Starting from nothing, he has bootstrapped his way to a venture worth multiple millions of dollars once more.

How did he do it? And is business success easier the second time around? Here’s his story:…

No Excuses! The Homeless Entrepreneur

It was the first week of April, 2012 and I was in Philadelphia getting prepared for the next stop of my “Less Talk…More Action” Empowerment Tour, which would be held in Philly the following week. After a long day of meetings with community partners, I stopped at my bank to take out cash from the ATM. It just so happened there was a mini rally to help the homeless happening immediately in front of my bank. No Excuses No Victim Mentality

Having a soft spot for the homeless, I stopped to talk to the coordinator of the rally to learn about the initiative and tell her why I was in Philly; I was actually hoping we might be able to support each other. Eavesdropping on our conversation was a homeless man, Jason Mercado, who after I had concluded my conversation with the coordinator, began to tell me about his story — I was sold immediately!

Jason Mercado is homeless and currently lives in a homeless shelter with over 40 others. He is one of the many tragedies of this hard economy who has entered into the realm of the impoverished. However, “down” he may be, but “out” he certainly isn’t. On that day Jason told me about the business he had started — “Just Cookies.”

So here I am on a random weeknight talking to a homeless man about some business he has created…

Silicone Valley Is Trying To Make Humans Immortal And Finding Some Success

Peter Thiel, the billionaire co-founder of PayPal, plans to live to be 120. Compared with some other tech billionaires, he doesn’t seem particularly ambitious. Dmitry Itskov, the “godfather” of the Russian Internet, says his goal is to live to 10,000; Larry Ellison, co-founder of Oracle, finds the notion of accepting mortality “incomprehensible,” and Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google, hopes to someday “cure death.”become immortal

These titans of tech aren’t being ridiculous, or even vainglorious; their quests are based on real, emerging science that could fundamentally change what we know about life and about death. It’s hard to believe, though, since the human quest for immortality is both ancient and littered with catastrophic failures. Around 200 B.C., the first emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang, accidentally killed himself trying to live forever; he poisoned himself by eating supposedly mortality-preventing mercury pills.

Centuries later, the search for eternal life wasn’t much safer: In 1492, Pope Innocent VIII died after blood transfusions from three healthy boys whose youth he believed he could absorb…

Fear Quotes

Fear is never a reason for quitting; it is only an excuse. Norman Vincent Peale

Procrastination is the fear of success. People procrastinate because they are afraid of the success that they know will result if they move ahead now. Because success is heavy, carries a responsibility with it, it is much easier to procrastinate and live on the ‘someday I’ll’ philosophy. Denis Waitley

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy. Dale Carnegie

The Courage to Take Action Article

Perhaps the greatest challenge that you will ever face in life is the conquest of fear and the development of the habit of courage. Winston Churchill once wrote, “Courage is rightly considered the foremost of virtues, for upon it, all others depend.” Fear is, and always has been, the greatest enemy of mankind. fear nothing

When Franklin D. Roosevelt said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” he was saying that the emotion of fear, rather than the reality of what we fear, is the cause of the associated anxiety, stress, and unhappiness. When we develop the habit of courage and unshakable self-confidence, a whole new world of possibilities opens up to us. Just think: What would you dare to dream, be, or do if you were not afraid of anything in the whole world?

Fortunately, the habit of courage can be learned, just as any other skill is learned. To do so, we need to go to work systematically to diminish and eradicate our fears, while simultaneously building the kind of courage that will enable us to deal fearlessly with the inevitable ups and downs of life.

Winning Is A State Of Mind At Nike

Three running enthusiasts teamed up andBack in 1965, Phil Knight, cofounder of Nike Inc., had no idea he had just launched a company that would shortly become a front-runner on a fast track. Knight, only 27 at the time, was an auditor with Coopers & Lybrand in Portland, Oreg. After work and on weekends, he’d load up his station wagon with Japanese sneakers, drive to local track meets, and hawk the sneaks from his tailgate. He is still a bit bemused by what happened.

“I hope nobody ever starts thinking this company is some kind of institution,” he says. “We’re still just a bunch of guys selling sneakers.”

Back in 1965, Knight’s partner, 54-year-old Bill Bowerman, a widely respected track-and-field coach at the University of Oregon, also had no idea what the future would hold. Bowerman had dug up $500 to finance half of Knight’s tailgate inventory, and used to spend his evenings at a kitchen table tinkering with the imported sneaks, a stitch here, a little more padding there, anything to squeeze out a few more seconds for future Olympians. turned a fad into a national movement. Phil Knight has turned that winner’s attitude into a corporate philosophy…
