You Are Not The Best Person You Can BeTruth About Life: Two equally qualified people walk into an opportunity - say a job- and only one of them comes out successful. This is not new to you, right?... from job interviews, to getting a promotion at work, even making money online. You name it, this statement really happens. Some people fail while some succeed.

The question is: What causes some people to succeed and others to fail?

After three decades of painstaking research, the Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck believes that the answer to the puzzle lies in how people think about intelligence and talent. Those who believe they were born with all the smarts and gifts they’re ever going to have approach life with what she calls a “fixed mind-set.” Those who believe that their own abilities can expand over time, however, live with a “growth mind-set.” - excerpt from The New York Times.

Do you get it? What do you think? I think, no matter if you succeed or fail in your endeavor, what counts is you tried and never quit. You'll never know unless you try, that is.
