Grow a Resilient Mind and Get Out of Your Own Way

Mar 19, 2014


In honor of opening enrollment on TeachNow (1,006 happy students to date!), I’ve got a gift for you (whether you think of yourself as a teacher or not):

A mini-course in developing a growth mindset!

The view you adopt of yourself profoundly affects the way you lead your life – far more than your level of talent or intelligence. It shapes the person you become and the impact you have in the world. But creating what author and Stanford professor Carol Dweck calls a “growth mindset” takes targeted effort. It is NOT about plastering happy thoughts on your fears but about learning to work bravely and skillfully with your mind.

Cultivating a growth mindset has made me happier, more loving, more open to life, certainly more productive and creative. I have found it particularly helpful as a teacher, creative person, writer, mom, friend, sister, daughter, wife, and business person. In other words, in every role and area of my life. It’s just one of those foundational ideas I want the world to practice.

This five-day mini-course will help you see your blocks to learning (having a growth mindset means allowing yourself to learn and never viewing your capacity as fixed) and starting working with them more skillfully.

So please click over and join the course here. Your name won’t be added to any list. The course starts as soon as you sign up, and the lessons are tiny bite-sized experiences tailor-made to help you expand what you see as possible. And if you are thinking about TeachNow, you get to test-drive Ruzuku, the platform I use for the course.

I look forward to seeing what opens up for you inside the course.



P.S. Take the course even if you have no desire to teach – it’s not made for teachers in particular, although we are all teachers every day.
