The Winner's Brain
8 Strategies Great Minds Use to Achieve Success
In The Winner's Brain, Drs. Jeffrey Brown and Mark J. Fenske use cutting-edge neuroscience to identify the secrets of those who succeed no matter what -- and demonstrate how little it has to do with IQ or upbringing. Through simple everyday practices, Brown and Fenske explain how to unlock the brain's hidden potential, using:
Balance: Make emotions work in your favor
Bounce: Create a failure-resistant brain
Opportunity Radar: Spot hot prospects previously hidden by problems
Focus Laser: Lock into what's important
Effort Accelerator: Cultivate the drive to win
Along the way, meet dozens of interesting people who possess "win factors" (like the inventor of Whac-A-Mole) and glean fascinating information (like why you should never take a test while wearing red). Compulsively readable, The Winner's Brain will not only give you an edge, but also motivate you to pursue your biggest dreams.
