Why Attitude Is More Important Than IQ

When it comes to success, it’s easy to think that people blessed with brains are inevitably going to leave the rest of us in the dust. But new research from Stanford University will change your mind (and your attitude). Psychologist Carol Dweck has spent her entire career studying attitude and performance, and her latest study shows that your attitude is a better predictor of your success than your IQ. Dweck found that people’s core attitudes fall into one of two categories: a fixed mindset or a growth mindset. With a fixed mindset, you believe you are who you are and you cannot change. This creates problems when you’re challenged because anything that appears to be more than you can handle is bound to make you feel hopeless and overwhelmed.

Naidu lays foundation for VEM Aerocity in West Godavari district

20 more small units will come up in the vicinity, he says
Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu on Saturday laid foundation stone for the construction of the defence spare parts manufacturing company, VEM Aerocity, at Vatluru in Pedapadu mandal in West Godavari district.
He went round the photo exhibition arranged by the VEM company executives and interacted with the students. A Skill Development Centre had been proposed in the company to provide training for the youth.

Job generation

Addressing a meeting later, Mr. Naidu said the government had sanctioned 350 acres for the project, which could generate about 7,500 jobs once the construction of the company was completed. The Government of India listed the VEM Aerocity under A-Category and 20 more small units would come up in the vicinity, he said. Stressing that the government was giving priority for setting up industries and industrial corridors, the Chief Minister said jobs cannot be created without industries and the Defence Research Development Organisation’s (DRDO’s) unit in Kurnool, the Long Range Missile Testing Centre at Nagayalanka, Krishna district, the Army Training Centre in Chittoor and the BEL Optics Unit at Nimmakuru would be completed in the coming years ensuring good employment opportunities for the youth, he said.

Spare parts

“Under the Make in India programme, we have to develop spare parts in the defence and research wings with our own technology. We are trying to provide jobs locally for the youth and prevent them from flying abroad. About ₹2,000 crore investment with over 20 ancillary units is expected at Vem Aerocity,” the Chief Minister said amid huge applause.

Ministers Peetala Sujata, Kamineni Srinivas, MLAs, VEM Aerocity representatives and officials participated in the programme.
