Debut authors Lowell and Lola’s thoroughly researched, compelling self-help work focuses on undoing “fixed mindset thinking.”

From Isaac Newton to the Nazis to the unbounded potential of the 21st century, this hybrid of self-help guide and historical document explores the concept of the “fixed mindset”—the cultural, intellectual and emotional forces that encourage people to limit themselves from growing in their accomplishments, abilities and self-esteem. Lowell and Lola frame two camps: those who assume a fixed mindset approach toward life and whose intelligence and abilities are therefore inherently unchangeable and those who embrace the notion of personal growth. The authors explain: “Instead of accepting difficult challenges, learning from their failures, and sometimes being pleasantly surprised when they succeed, people with the fixed mindset only undertake challenges at which they are sure they will be successful. By doing so, they continuously confirm the level of ability they believe they have, and further reinforce their beliefs about their lack of talent.” The book elegantly transitions from scientifically documented studies and historical anecdotes to exercises designed to help participants understand the psychological blockages they carry within themselves. The penultimate section, a workbook, includes prompts that encourage readers to write down ideas that will help them break through their self-imposed barriers. The clearly written text is engaging both as a self-help guide and as a striking compendium of facts. Nazi Germany, for example, began involuntarily sterilizing people only after finding precedent in American practices of the period. The unusual perspectives on geniuses such as Einstein, Newton and others provide a welcome change from typical portraits.

An inventive, entertaining mix of history, research and self-help.

Description
Discover how eminent researchers taught people to realize their true potential by addressing their inaccurate beliefs. Strangely, these researchers found the following: at the subconscious level, most people believe that they are incapable of being successful and of breaking certain bad habits. These inaccurate beliefs can cause people to appear to lack talent, to consistently succumb to bad habits, and can lead to generally less success over the course of their lifetime.

The good news is that such beliefs (ones held subconsciously about intrinsic personality flaws, etc.) are not founded on scientific data, but rather on doctrines that trace back thousands of years. In this text, authors Lowell and Lola illustrate how these faulty beliefs evolved in Western culture over the millennia, and remained popular mostly just because science of previous eras was incapable of proving them wrong. At this point however, modern science has conclusively proved that all individuals are capable of cultivating their skill sets, quitting apparently intrinsic bad habits, and even becoming smarter.

Lowell and Lola present a 5-step program based on the above research that will help you to realize your true potential. They also present a compilation of suggested approaches from several other well-known experts in the field of personal development to give you EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO SUCCEED. Note: the program is not only for people that are struggling in life, but is also for people that are already successful, and just want to take it to the next level.

*Includes a tribute to the referenced researchers for their contribution to the social sciences.
