Carol's book Mindset is a must read for anyone looking to explore our mindset and how we can influence it to be a little better. A "growth mindset" can help you overcome challenges and achieve success, while a "fixed mindset" can hold you back. Simply put, the idea of growth mindset is that hard work and effort can lead to success. Making a Splash is a children's book about growth mindset.
