My 3 favorite books on positive mindset

My 3 favorite books on positive mindset

* Playing Big by Tara Mohr
* Open by Andrew Agassi
* Shoe Dog by Phil Knight

Playing Big by Tara Mohr
* Learn how to identify the narratives we tell ourselves.
* Understand why we play small — out of safety, security, fear of failure. I need to have a Master’s degree! I need to take another 10 classes!
* Future version of yourself — who do you want that to be?
* Written for women, but I found it immensely useful

Open by Andre Agassi
* How to win when the stakes are high — every last detail thought through, like racket tension
* He hates playing
* But he can’t stop — he’s been programmed since childhood to play
* He shares what happens when you win and when you lose — like how deathly quiet the locker room is. We instinctively have a need to know “What it’s going to be like,” although we can never really know until we live it ourselves

Shoe Dog by Phil Knight
* Small, scrappy, hustling — handing out Nikes to Hollywood stars
* Scaling — when things start to grow
* And then things get really hard

Stanford Mystery: Who's the Old Guy In the White Nikes?
– 69 yrs old
– “I suggested he start somewhere at his level of ability," Mr. Wolff says.
– Entry-level creative writing class
– Participated during class, turns out he’d been trying to write a novel for 20 years
– Paid for drinks, took classmates out to Palo Alto bars…then flew home in his private jet
