Who's the Coach in Your Head?
Our success in life often depends on our self-talk and growth mindset. I put so many postits in my copy of Mindset: the New Psychology of Success it looked like confetti, but Carol S. Dweck gave me a lot to consider and reason to challenge myself for change.
A second source that helped me recognize patterns of cognitive dissonance and my own triggers when I am physically tired comes from www.PositivePsychology.com in their article "Cognitive Distortions: When Your Brain Lies to You." This link includes PDF worksheets to help us move forward and create a safe environment for the messy work of growth.
