Head Start in the Daily Express
Updated: Nov 28, 2018
You don't need to be genius or original. Often resilience is the key to success. So how do we develop it? A new book by Ian Price - Head Start: Build a Resilient Mindset So You Can Achieve Your Goals (Pearson £10.99) has some top tips.
1) Notice your negative mental chatter: jot down your random thoughts and negativity from the past that may pop up.
2) Re-frame your thinking: develop the thinking part of the brain, the prefrontal cortex, to push back so that negative beliefs do not take hold and prevent you from moving forward.
3) Develop a growth mindset: start seeing failure as a learning opportunity. Move outside your comfort zone and take on risk.
4) Emphasise the positive: keep a diary, noting at the end of each day what went well.
