Welcome to episode 13 of Ask Mark, where I answer your questions about personal development to help you become the best version of yourself.
From interviewing people from all walks of life on the What I Know Now podcast, I want to share with you what I have learned from my guests by answering any questions you have about personal development, networking and building meaningful relationships. The aim of Ask Mark is to help you achieve your goals sooner, so you stand on the shoulders of giants.

Now sit back, plug in those headphones and enjoy because it is time to learn together about personal development, networking, building meaningful relationships and so much more.
In this episode, I answer a listener’s question on a book I would recommend about personal development. ‘Mindset’ by Carol Dweck recently had a big impact on me that I would definitely recommend it.
In the book, she discusses how a ‘growth mindset’ will allow people to live a less stressful and more successful lifestyle, than those who have a ‘fixed mindset.’
One really interesting point is that students who are given compliments such as “you did a good job,you worked very hard” are more likely to develop a growth mindset, than those who are given praise and told “you are really smart.”
The author believes that people need to understand their talent and ability is something that can be developed through effort, good teaching and persistence. Everyone can become smarter if you work at it.
