Most of the book which stands out to me, is the author’s encouragement to her readers, that anyone can change their mindset at any time, age, or state of mind in their life. It may be very difficult for some people, but it can be done and it is well worth it. Carol Dweck provokes readers to pursue reading the rest of her book when she states, “Much of what you think of as your personality actually grows out of this “mindset.” Much of what may be preventing you from fulfilling your potential grows out of it” (xi). This quote makes readers want to continue reading because it not only makes the reader wonder, it makes them want to find out what the rest of the book is about. My initial thought of this sentence was
In his poem “We Wear the Mask” Dunbar writes about people wearing masks but the true meaning of the poem is how people will try to hide their identity to look like a better more perfect person. In his poem “Life” dunbar writes about how life is not always good and at t8imes life seems to be really bad.

Our bodies are growing, but we also approach things in different ways as we meet each new day. This is true for me, people in my family, and people all around the world. While the title of the poem references a girl, as does the dedication, the message of the poem applies to everyone, especially as they are growing up and “becoming” someone in the world.This poem has affected my life, even though I have just known it for a week.

Many things come with 2 sides; good and bad. In the poem, it talks of the bad side where readers of poems want to “torture a confession” out of a poem rather than just enjoying a poem for what it is.
