Every teacher (and parent) should read Mindset by Carol Dweck.  We need to help students develop a growth mindset – let them grapple with problems and see that hard work produces results.  A fixed mindset is detrimental to students who do well in school and to students who struggle.  More information on Mindset can be found here http://mindsetonline.com/.  You can register to receive a Mindset newsletter here http://community.mindsetworks.com/newsletter
