The Athletic Mindset gives three tools a person needs to achieve success. It’s about getting your mind in shape with the same attitude a successful athlete has, having a positive outlook, believing in yourself, setting goals and never giving up while striving to attain those goals. It is filled with amusing antidotes & cartoons, motivating quotes and useful tips that people of all ages can benefit from.
I am a spin teacher so this book is useful for coaching and motivating my cycle students to work harder. But I am also a third grade teacher. Third grade can be tough for students, the curriculum becomes more advanced and students really need to know how to work hard and learn from mistakes or failures. I love the “B Chart”. There is a big push in education for students to be self-aware and self assess their own learning. The “B Chart” is very useful for this. I think The Athletic Mindset will give my students the motivation they need to build a “powerful BAG” that contains the three tools they will use throughout life. This book will help anyone (adults and children) become healthier in mind, body and spirit. I highly recommend this fun, informative and thought provoking read that will quickly change your mindset.
