There’s a reason you look up
You were told you are down
CHANGE THE STORY. RESHAPE YOU.
How can you motivate people and empower them to make better choices? This book provides a fresh perspective on the answers, as well as the tools. Steven takes you on a fascinating journey into how the mind has evolved, how it is shaped by society and how in turn it shapes society. You will learn why some people believe they can't, while others are convinced they can, how the story of color has shaped post-colonial societies, and the story of capitalism has shaped the West.
Whether you are simply interested in understanding behavior, or are a parent, teacher or manager ready to lead change, Breaking Rank is bound to shift and sharpen your perspective. You will never look at your own behavior - or the behavior of others - the same way again
When we understand our minds
We realize we are not what stories say we are
Why are so many still whitewashing?
They still believe in a story of ideal beauty.
Why does exclusion hurt?
200,000 years ago that would have led to our death.
Full bodies have always been attractive
Only in the last 100 years has a new story emerged.
wHAT THOUGHT LEADERS ARE SAYING...
A brilliant and eye-opening analysis of why countries,cultures, and people stay underdeveloped, and the real work required to unstick that. Virtually every page has an intriguing and well-researched insight, along with real-life anecdotes and examples. Front to back, I couldn'tput it down.
If you're looking for an alternative understanding of what drives the wealth of nations, this book is for you. Applying a Buddhist view of mind and reality, Steven explains today's global economy by looking at how the stories shape not only people's perception - but also the choices they make. A provocative and eye-opening analysis.
Bursting with stimulating ideas and bold, challenging arguments on complex and often controversial topics (identity, personal as well as collective, colonialism, postcolonialism, racism, gender issues, economic growth and economic stagnation, etc.). Immensely rich in terms of both the range of topics it covers and critical perspectives it provides on these topics. Most importantly, it offers individuals valuable tools that may enable them to change the negative stories foisted on them by others and thus become masters of their destiny.
Agreeing with it. I'll be advising those who claim to be educators to get it, in my future remarks.
