Gives advice on building confidence and self-esteem to achieve any goal that you set yourself.
I'm no good at sport ... I can't do maths ... I really struggle with exams ... Sound familiar?
If you believe you can't do something, the chances are you won't try. But what if you really could get better at maths, or sport or exams? In fact, what if you could excel at anything you put your mind to?
You Are Awesome can help you do just that, inspiring and empowering young readers to find the confidence to realise their potential. Times journalist, two-time Olympian and best-selling mindset author Matthew Syed, uses examples of successful people from Mozart to Serena Williams to demonstrate that success really is earned rather than given, and that talent can be acquired.
With hard work and determination, practice and self-belief, and, most importantly, a Growth Mindset, there's no reason why anyone can't achieve anything. Practical, insightful and positive, this is the book to help young people build resilience, embrace their mistakes and grow into successful, happy adults.
