Turns out what we need is something akin to compassion, self-reflection and emotional awareness… Steve Magness really has flipped the script. Magness shows how we can reframe our mindset to emphasize cognitive flexibility, an understanding of purpose, and a focus on the whole person and relationships to drive our success and satisfaction.

In the corporate world, we prop up the companies that create slick-looking ads promoting values of inclusion and diversity, all while the inner workings of those organizations are littered with abuse, hostility, and harassment. When you’re all about image, you set goals designed to impress other people: I’m going to run a marathon or I’m going to marry the most attractive partner I can find. Magness even references Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs in this section, and as someone who spent most of their career dealing with Maslow, it made this former teacher’s heart smile.Below, Steve shares 5 key insights from his new book, Do Hard Things: Why We Get Resilience Wrong and the Surprising Science of Real Toughness.

When you teach someone to work hard when you're yelling at them, what do you think happens when you're not there? Compounding our confusion, we’ve resorted to tying toughness to masculinity and an ethos of machismo. Collectively his books have sold more than a quarter-million copies in print, ebook, and audio formats.This was not the final Toughness Maxim in the book but like the first one that I quoted this one really summed everything up for me, “Purpose is the fuel that allows you to be tough. My favorite quote from the first chapter that really sets up (and summarizes) the book: “Real toughness is experiencing discomfort or distress, leaning in, paying attention, and creating space to take thoughtful action. And fulfilling our basic needs helps not only with well-being, but also with the ability to persist. It fails in the military, where the most resilient soldiers show high levels of emotional flexibility, and high levels of humble confidence. It was slightly athlete focused, however he does give examples from other areas so it’s still relevant for everyone.
