For generations, we've been stuck with a cookie-cutter mold for success that requires us to be the same as everyone else, only better. This "standard formula" works for some people but leaves most of us feeling disengaged and frustrated. As much as we might dislike the standard formula, it seems like there's no other practical path to financial security and a fulfilling life. But what if there is? In the Dark Horse Project at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, bestselling author and acclaimed thought leader Todd Rose and neuroscientist Ogi Ogas studied women and men who achieved impressive success even though nobody saw them coming. Dark horses blaze their own trail to a life of happiness and prosperity. Yet what is so remarkable is that hidden inside their seemingly one-of-a-kind journeys are practical principles for achieving success that work for anyone, no matter who you are or what you hope to achieve. This mold-breaking approach doesn't depend on you SAT scores, who you know, or how much money you have. The secret is a mindset that can be expressed in plain English: Harness your individuality in the pursuit of fulfillment to achieve excellence. In Dark Horse, Rose and Ogas show how the four elements of the dark horse mindset empower you to consistently make the right choices that fit your unique interests, abilities, and circumstances and will guide you to a life of passion, purpose, and achievement.

Professional reviews

"Roger Wayne's enthusiasm is palpable as he puts his broad phrasing palette to good use in narrating this stimulating audiobook. Using the term "dark horse" to refer to unexpected winners who prepare in unconventional ways for success, the authors say it can be misguided for some people to pursue career goals by following conventional formulas that were developed during the age of industrialization--and remain common today. Rigid organizations want people to "fill slots," so they force people into a "standardization covenant," a cultural mind-set that requires conformity and discourages people from seeking individual fulfillment. In contrast to that approach, the authors offer four mind-sets that dark horse winners adopt to understand their passions and find unconventional ways to achieve their destinies.
