This week on Five Tips Tuesday, we let you in on how a proper mindset can affect your success.

While people have different definitions of success, we all want to get a feel of how it is to be successful. The way you think will greatly affect how you respond to the challenges that come your way.

It's All in the Mind: How Mindset Affects Success

In this week’s edition, learn the importance of growth mindset from Carol Dweck as well as from a study published by Stanford University. See how one website can keep you motivated and watch yourself grow at the same time. Also, find refuge in a relaxation app for your sanity break.

1. Video – Carol Dweck is a pioneering researcher, studying how people foster success. In a TED talk, she discussed how our capacity to improve is all in the mind.

2. Article – Growth mindset is the idea that a positive trait can be developed. Unsurprisingly, this is an essential ingredient in brewing your success.
