Mindset by Carol Dweck, Ph. D.

A few months ago my Preschool Director mentioned Carol Dweck's book Mindset during our monthly Leadership Team meeting. I quickly wrote down Dweck's name and made a mental note to myself to put Mindset on my reading list. 

Dweck's Mindset uses extensive research to explain why people succeed, and how to nurture success. I found Dweck's research fascinating and it has motivated me to continue striving as an early childhood educator and art teacher to fulfill my potential. 

One of my favorite quotes from the book is:

"You have to apply yourself each day to becoming a little better. By applying yourself to the task of becoming a little better each and every day over a period of time, you will become a lot better."
