This work offers a summary of the book "GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY: The Five Keys to Surpassing Everyone's Expectations" by Robert Cooper.
Robert Cooper is a leadership advisor who specializes in the neuroscience of optimal performance. For the past thirty years, he has analyzed how some individuals and teams achieve what others consider to be impossible. He has personally advised rising stars in many organizations on his performance principles.
According to Cooper, the biggest barrier to accomplishing your dreams is never external.
Instead the biggest barrier is always internal - how your mind works and operates. To accomplish more, you've got to train your brain to think differently. If you can do that, you in effect get out of your own way so you can move forward to greater personal success.
Your brain doesn't even realize it stands in the way of achieving more. It defends established habits, encourages you to stick to a routine, keeps you from taking risks and prefers the known to trying new things.
All of these patterns are helpful when playing it safe was an imperative but they are far less productive in the modern era. In Get Out of Your Own Way, Cooper offers five keys to get your brain working for you instead of against you.
Filled with practical tools and interesting ideas, Get Out of Your Own Way is a powerful book. Cooper reveals how to peak performance in leadership and life.
