What is life and are we getting what we want from it ? This is a question which may bother many of us. Of course the existence of living things is one aspect. But other dictionary meanings say that life is a verve, energy, excitement, sparkle etc. so the question may arise whether we are getting those things from our lives and are we satisfied with what we are achieving.

Those people with a fixed mindset believe that their character, intelligence and other abilities are all givens which cannot be changed and being successful depends on their inbuilt intelligence.  While those with a growth mindset thrive on challenges and accept failure as a facilitator for stretching their abilities and a catalyst for growth and development.
