Making Mistakes

“People who believe in the power of talent tend not to fulfill their potential because they’re so concerned with looking smart and not making mistakes. But people who believe that talent can be developed are the ones who really push, stretch, confront their own mistakes and learn from them.”

~ Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck quoted in "If You’re Open to Growth, You Tend to Grow" (Janet Rae-Dupree, New York Times, 7.6.08)
