  • The Power of belief -- mindset and success, Eduardo Briceño, TEDxManhattanBeach
    The way we understand our intelligence and abilities deeply impacts our success. Based on social science research and real-life examples, Eduardo Briceño articulates how mindset, or the understanding of intelligence and abilities, is key. When students or adults see their abilities as fixed, whether they think they're natural or just not built for a certain domain, they avoid challenges and lose interest when things get hard. Conversely, when they understand that abilities are developed, they more readily adopt learning-oriented behaviors such as deliberate practice and grit that enable them to achieve their goals. But this belief is itself malleable, and there are clear actions we can all take to establish a growth mindset and enable success for our children, our peers, and ourselves.
