From the ancient world through the Renaissance, and even today, artistic and intellectual ability is often viewed as an intuitive gift rather than the result of effort.
To what end?
Mindsets powerfully impact learning behaviour. Learners with a growth mindset work harder, embrace challenge, persist for longer and learn from criticism, whereas the fixed mindset develops undesirable learning dispositions and character traits, ultimately under-achieving.
Teacher mindsets result in teacher expectations impacting student achievement. It is important that teachers understand the impact their beliefs, words and actions have on cultivating the learning disposition of students.

The role and context of self-determination theory in achievement, and how to influence self-motivation
