When Jon Acuff asked kids at a camp to write down their hidden doubts and fears, it became clear to him that the soundtracks they’re listening to – the negative messages they feed themselves – aren’t setting them up for success. Sound familiar? Has overthinking ever been an issue for you? If you’ve ever caught yourself thinking I’m not _____ enough to do that or heard your child saying, “I’m the worst at ________” or your teen saying, “I’ll never pass ______” or “Fat chance I’ll ever get into _______”, then stop right here and listen in. Jon Acuff tackles this problem head-on, backed by research in his recent book, Soundtracks. Even better, in this conversation he shares what he and his two teenaged daughters, L.E. and McRae have learned, applied and written about to help other teens replace their broken soundtracks with thoughts that launch them into a better future.
Jon’s book is called Soundtracks and can be found here.
The book Jon wrote with L.E. and McRae is call Your New Playlist and can be found here.
