Description

The better we’re able to understand and communicate with what’s going on in our inner world, the better we’re able to decide whether to heed its warnings or let them pass on by.

When we go in with bravado, it backfires because at the first inkling that we may not be able to succeed, our brain freaks out. There are lots of additional approaches (Buddhism for example) that readers may want to explore in addition to the helpful ideas here. I. the message is one we sorely need hear bc if fiction is anything by which to judge the expectations for teens, then we fall into all the traps this book points out. When life feels like it’s spinning out of control, or like the task you have in front of you is insurmountable, it’s easy to default to hopelessness.I use "yelling" in the colloquial sense here – talking down to someone regardless of volume; you can berate or chastise someone, in a low tone of voice, and be yelling. Steve Magness makes a beautiful and compelling case for the value of inner strength over outer strength and humility over bluster. Do Hard Things is the Harris twins' revolutionary message in its purest and most compelling form, giving readers a tangible glimpse of what is possible for teens who actively resist cultural lies that limit their potential.

As a sport psych I recoil when I hear people bang on about mental toughness and this title felt similar. However, the roadmap we were given to overcome life’s challenges and tribulations is oftentimes not grounded in reality.I just w Fortunately for the author, this book’s review will be similarly colored, and so the reader is advised to take whatever I have to say with an even larger than usual grain of salt. My summary can't replace the way Magness weaves story and science together to change who you are as a person. In Do Hard Thingsthey encourage us to go above and beyond the status quo in everything from schoolwork to serving the poor.
