Two things get in the way of this:
1. Fixed mindset stories. Our last video talked about how we can use the science of learning to overcome those stories.
2. Fear. The fear of the unknown, the fear of the struggle, the fear of looking bad.
These are the biggest enemies to learning (that we have control of).
In order to become a great learner we HAVE to overcome fear. It’s not easy, it’s not fun, but it’s something that we can all do. This video shows us how.
No topic has been more beneficial to me than this one, which is why we made such a massive video about it!
I hope you enjoy it – but more importantly I hope that it changes the way you think about and talk about fear.

TRAIN UGLY WORKSHOPS
With research from:
Alison Wood Brooks
Creativity and I are about to go on a road trip. I understand that you’ll be joining us – because you always do.
I acknowledge that you believe you have an important job to do in my life and you take your job seriously.
Apparently your job is to induce complete panic in me whenever I’m about to do something interesting – and, may I say, you are superb at your job.
So by all means, keep doing your job, if you feel you must. But I will also be doing my job on this road trip, which is to work hard and stay focused. And creativity will be doing its job, which is to remain stimulating and inspiring. There’s plenty of room in the vehicle for all of us, so make yourself at home, but understand: Creativity and I are the only ones who will be making any decisions along the way.
I recognize and respect that you are part of this family, and so I will never exclude you from our activities, but still – your suggestions will never be followed. You’re allowed to have a seat, and you’re allowed to have a voice, but you are not allowed to have a vote. You are not allowed to touch the road maps; you are not allowed to suggest detours; you’re not allowed to fiddle with the temperature. Dude, you’re not even allowed to choose the friggin’ snacks!
But above all else, my dear old familiar friend, you are absolutely forbidden to drive.
Then we head off together – me and creativity and fear – side by side by side forever, advancing once more into the terrifying but marvelous terrain of unknown outcome.”
