Frames of Mind: Motivation According to Kabbalah (The Judaism and Modern Times Series) Softcover, 256pp.
THE MOST DIFFICULT PAGE IS PAGE NUMBER ONE
We all know the feeling. A book looks interesting, inspiring, beneﬁcial even… then something happens, and we put it down. That something is a distraction.
THE ANTIDOTE IS MOTIVATION.
While our lives appear to be moving at an ever increasing pace, we risk an experience known as the vertigo of modernism. With so much happening all around, amidst the dizzying pace of progress and change, how do we keep our focus and maintain our motivation? To answer that question, FRAMES OF MIND examines the recent psychological theory of growth and ﬁxed mind sets and shows how it corresponds to the ancient teachings of Kabbalah. As we struggle to gain our foothold in the world of the present, we need to ﬁrst frame our modern-day challenges and obstacles in light of the experiences of the past. But even as we hold onto the past, we also need to set our sights on the future. Like a sprinter or archer who ﬁrst withdraws in order to spring forward, we withdraw to the ancient source of motivation in order to propel ourselves farther forward. In synthesizing ancient and modern ideas, FRAMES OF MIND demonstrates how we can reach our goals faster and arrive closer to the target than we ever thought possible.
