The answer may lie in their mindset, according to Dr. Carol Dweck, a professor of psychology at Stanford University. Her book on this topic, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success has struck a cord as much with academic researchers as with the CEOs of fortune 500 companies, and everyday parents like you and me.
