I blog on Brain-Based Learning, Metacognition, EdTech, and Social-Emotional Learning. I am the author of the Crush School Series of Books, which help students understand how their brains process information and learn. I also wrote The Power of Three: How to Simplify Your Life to Amplify Your Personal and Professional Success, but be warned that it's meant for adults who want to thrive and are comfortable with four letter words.

Chapter 2 is about the importance of growth mindset in learning. Here's an excerpt:

If you tell yourself that you can’t do something before you try it, you will sure enough fail at it. This is because you’re communicating to your brain that something is impossible. In return, your brain believes you and does everything in its power to prove you correct. It sabotages your progress!
