Sometimes gifted students avoid projects, subjects or activities because they do not believe they can be successful at them. This can be changed by adopting a Growth mindset instead of a Fixed one — thereby fostering productivity and creativity.  We will discuss many informative anecdotes and ideas offered in this book.
