Motivational speakers do talk about the importance of having the right mindset.
Growing up as an adult, I did try to keep my focus on my attitude and the mindset that I was nurturing consciously.
I still had my doubts, and I definitely lacked clarity to explain it to my family, my friends and most importantly my wife.
She being my work colleague, we spend a lot of time talking about things that will help us evolve.

We find ourselves at times belittling ourselves.
We also crib about the circumstances that we are in.
The worst is when we believe that nothing can be changed.
Even, in the book I wrote back in 2017 for entrepreneurs it mentioned about the importance of having a winning mindset.
Most of the people give up on their dreams, because they believe that they won’t be able to achieve it.
It is all in the mind.
Well I do agree, that there are external factors that do matter as well. But, most of the problems are solvable.
Fixed mindset doesn’t allow you to solve those problems.
On the alternative, people who believe that they achieve whatever they want with planning, efforts and collaboration, usually achieve greater success.
These kind of people look at problems as challenges that they can solve and move ahead.
They don’t take failures as set back.
The thought of not giving up itself is the biggest advantage they have.
I always asked people to have mindset where they would fightback for the things that they desperately want or achieve.
While I was trying to explain the importance of mindset to my wife, I was trying to figure out if any of the books could do the job.
This is when, I came across the book by Carol Dweck called “Mindset”
This book is definitely a game changer. It clearly explains the foundation of mindset and the types of mindset.
There are no points for guessing that which mindset usually excels in life.
But, this books quicks detailed insights and inspiration on how mindsets help us evolve over a period of time.
Childhood Influences & the Mindset
What I liked most about this book is where the mention of how childhood influences play a role in the development of mindset.
In my childhood, I have always been crazy about the Sourav Ganguly (He was the Indian Cricket Team Captain – for the non-cricketing people). He was dropped out of team, and then at a age where most people choose to retire, he made a comeback.
Probably that helps me to give it a one more try, when I fail to achieve what I want.
This book has great examples, does make it for a good read.
Book Review of Mindset by Carol Dweck
This is definitely a must read. (For those who want valuable insights on how one can tweak their mind to achieve success.)
It is applauded on every book review platform.
The second part of the book might seem repetitive for many readers, but it connects the dots pretty well.
