I found Think, Learn, Succeed fascinating. The science was presented in ways I understood. And I could see how the tools Dr. Leaf presents in the book can be effective when used over time. Dr. Leaf presents the idea that we can choose a mindset that extends our abilities, and because we have chosen to move beyond the normal limits we place on ourselves, our lives actually become more fulfilled. I received a copy of this book from the publisher. This review is my own, honest opinion.

“Your brain is finely attuned to your mind; it is designed to respond to your conscious thinking.” Excerpt I’m fascinated by the human mind—how it is designed and how we are wired. Our mindset is powerful. If you doubt this, then think about the last time you sat with a negative or angry person. They probably brought you down. Or the last time you entered a room of positive and happy people. You probably left in a better frame of mind than you entered. It’s intriguing to look at the concept of using our mindsets to rewire our lives, bringing positivity and success our way. It may sound bizarre, but I fully believe in the influence of mindful thinking. I have to admit; I didn’t understand some of this book. The wordage was a bit much and I didn’t have a deep enough interest in researching terms or meanings. But some of the book really resonated with me, such as the importance of the words we use, the emotions we embrace, and the way we react to daily stressors. I wish more illustrations were included. The few that were included provided great visualizations. I also wish more whitespace was implemented. There is so much information; so a few pauses to allow everything to sink in would have been helpful and appreciated. Think Learn Succeed is a great resource to teach us how to influence our brain and body to work better for us. This is a sometimes confusing, sometimes fascinating read. I was blessed to receive a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher.
