Your abilities are NOT carved in stone.

Today's cat is about one of the most fundamental elements of the growth mindset: believing that your talents are not carved in stone.

Carol Dweck quote: "You believe talents and abilities can be developed, or you believe they’re carved in stone." The quote comes from this podcast: Carol Dweck Says Theory of Educational Mind-Set Is Often Misunderstood by Goldie Blumenstyk. You can also read the transcript at the Chronicle of Higher Education (subscription required; no subscription required for the Soundcloud podcast).

For more cats inspired by Carol Dweck's writings and talks, see the Dweck Collection.
