"...Work finally begins when the fear of doing nothing exceeds the fear of doing it badly..."

Alain de Botton as quoted by Megan McArdle, 2014

For the extreme fixed mindsets, the tipping point quite often never happens, ie they fear nothing so much as finding out that they never had what it takes

· How we treat success is linked with how people act when they face the possibility of failure

· Research has shown that people who achieve through hard work rather than talent are better learners. For example, students, who through their talent find secondary schooling easy, will not necessarily perform well at the tertiary level if they have not learnt to work hard.

"...the ability to learn from their mistakes, being knocked down and to pick themselves up - the ability, in other words, to fall gracefully..."

Megan McArdle, 2014
