Cure Your Cravings; Learn to Use This Revolutionary System to Conquer Compulsions (USED)

More Info
Toss out your cigarettes, stop worrying about your weight: The Shubentsov Solution has arrived. And 90,000 people acclaim that it works!

Who hasn't heard about the dangers of smoking, obesity, and substance abuse? But no matter how much you know in your heart that you shouldn't have that drink, smoke that cigarette, or eat that chocolate, you know just as well that you will.

There is something powerful about a craving. It's not that we're poorly informed, it's that we can't stop ourselves. Our biology -- our craving mechanism -- has us standing before a firing squad, shouting, "Come on already, shoot!" Anyone who has been on a diet (or ten) or quit smoking...again and again...knows how true this is.

Yefim Shubentsov is changing all that. Shubentsov has no time for draconian measures or asceticism; life, he says, is meant to be enjoyed. His simple technique employs a new perspective on craving and a heavy dose of common sense mixed with a powerful new discovery: Bio Energy. The result of years of behind-the-iron-curtain research, Bio Energy is a force within each one of us that waits only to be stirred. By understanding your cravings and awakening your Bio Energy, the bonds of addiction are easily thrown off.

Yefim Shubentsov is placing the power to cure your cravings right in your hands. In this book, he will reveal -- for the first time -- the effective methods he has used to help 90,000 people regain control of their lives. This strategy, the Shubentsov Solution, enables people to stop smoking, overeating, and craving -- without patches, questionable drugs, or denial.

Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead

$17.00
More Info
The #1 New York Times bestseller. 1 million copies sold!

From thought leader Brené Brown, a transformative new vision for the way we lead, love, work, parent, and educate that teaches us the power of vulnerability.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly."--Theodore Roosevelt

Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable or to dare greatly. Based on twelve years of pioneering research, Brené Brown PhD, LMSW, dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and argues that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.

Brown explains how vulnerability is both the core of difficult emotions like fear, grief, and disappointment, and the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, empathy, innovation, and creativity. She writes: "When we shut ourselves off from vulnerability, we distance ourselves from the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives."

Daring Greatly is not about winning or losing. It's about courage. In a world where "never enough" dominates and feeling afraid has become second nature, vulnerability is subversive. Uncomfortable. It's even a little dangerous at times. And, without question, putting ourselves out there means there's a far greater risk of getting criticized or feeling hurt. But when we step back and examine our lives, we will find that nothing is as uncomfortable, dangerous, and hurtful as standing on the outside of our lives looking in and wondering what it would be like if we had the courage to step into the arena--whether it's a new relationship, an important meeting, the creative process, or a difficult family conversation. Daring Greatly is a practice and a powerful new vision for letting ourselves be seen.

Denial of the Soul (USED)

$7.99
More Info
In Denial of the Soul, Dr. Peck differentiates the many situations that euthanasia is currently and commonly used to describe and offers new definitions that clarify its meaning. He rails against the inadequate treatment of physical pain and gives sensible medical and spiritual perspectives on chronic and terminal emotional and physical pain and illness. Denial of the Soul grapples with the deeper meanings of life, death, suicide, and euthanasia and asks whether we have the ethical right to kill ourselves even though we have the power. Through compelling stories from Dr. Peck's own experiences as a physician as well as from other medical cases in which some form of euthanasia was either practiced or considered, he explores the core issues that should arise when people face the question of euthanasia for themselves, their loved ones, or society: How does taking a life differ from allowing death? Whose consent does euthanasia require: the patient's, the family's, or the government's? When does physical or emotional pain become grounds for euthanasia? What can we learn from the process of dying a natural death?

Didn't See That Coming: Putting Life Back Together When Your World Falls Apart

$20.00
More Info

Fear. Grief. Loss. Betrayal. Rachel Hollis has felt all those things. Now, she takes you to the other side.

I want you to know that what's been good will always be good: the smell of coconut sunblock, a five year old showing you the spot where his front tooth used to be, a home-cooked meal, when your love kisses that exact spot on your neck, a grandmother's handwriting, a job well done, the kindness of strangers, the human spirit, an Appaloosa horse, the ritual of your faith, laughing until you pee your pants a little, holiday dessert tables, first birthday parties, a perfect cup of coffee. What's good will always be good, and one of the most awful, beautiful things about the hard seasons is that unless we experience hardship, we'll never truly appreciate the goodness.

Rachel Hollis sees you. As the millions who read her #1 New York Times bestsellers Girl, Wash Your Face and Girl, Stop Apologizing, attend her RISE conferences and follow her on social media know, she also wants to see you transform. When it comes to the "hard seasons" of life--the death of a loved one, divorce, loss of a job--transformation seems impossible when grief and uncertainty dominate your days. Especially when, as Didn't See that Coming reveals, no one asks to have their future completely rearranged for them.

But, as Rachel writes, it is up to you how you come through your pain--you can come through changed for the better, having learned and grown, or stuck in place where your identity becomes rooted in what hurt you. With her signature humor, heartfelt honesty and true-life stories, in Didn't See that Coming Rachel Hollis shares how to embrace the difficult moments in life for the learning experiences they are, and that a life well-lived is one of purpose and focused on the essentials. This is a small book about big feelings, inspirational, aspirational, and an anchor that shows that darkness can co-exist with the beautiful.

Divine Grace; The Power That Illuminates Your Soul (USED)

$4.99
More Info
Being blessed with Divine grace can leave you with an overwhelming sense of humility, your mind perplexed in its thinking of what you could have possibly done to be touched in this way. It is not an experience of your senses, mind, or body, but one of your soul. -From the Divine Grace Fredericka Close's powerful book describes a transformative journey, one of illumination that takes the reader beyond daily exterior life into the inner sacredness of the soul. The author informs her audience that on the journey, most of us carry baggage. It is the baggage of unfinished business, conflict, confusion, disappointment, and loss. The journey of illumination that she describes does not ask us to live lives of spiritual aloofness or lives that dismiss the experiences that remain in the vast depth of the mind. It does require readers to be present in their lives as they are now. Close explains how to live with greater purpose, how to relieve suffering and loneliness, and how to heal the emotional wounds that deplete our capacity to experience joy. In addition to drawing on the traditional wisdom of Eastern and Western mystics and contemporary spiritual teachers, Close guides readers through the inner structures of their energy patterns, moving deep into the stillness of their beings so that experience can reveal self-knowledge and wisdom. The result is personal empowerment. Recounting her own painful and once seemingly detrimental experiences, the author explains how those episodes disguised gifts of Divine grace. Close entreats her readers to heed calls of hunger from within the soul and to embrace the journey of self-discovery that leads to a state of peace that is beyond human understanding.

Egonomics (USED)

$4.99
More Info
In this original, eye-opening work, authors David Marcum and Steven Smith argue that the upside of ego is as powerful as the downside and answer questions about ego that have been a mystery to most people.

In his landmark book, Good to Great, Jim Collins showed that one of two key traits defined leaders who transformed organizations from good to great: humility. But if humility is so powerful, why don't more of us have it? Why does ego allow us to reach good results but never great ones, unless balanced by humility? Why do we need ego to personally succeed, while having it often interferes with the success we pursue? Using five years of exhaustive research, Marcum and Smith provide compelling evidence and matter-of-fact answers on striking the balance between ego and humility to reach the next level of leadership. The authors include case studies to illustrate how ego subtly interferes with success but also how ego sparks the drive to achieve, the nerve to try something new, and the tenacity to conquer adversity.

We all have moments when ego costs us everything from an honest conversation to a job or promotion. Through cross-disciplinary research, egonomics reveals how to detect four early warning signs that ego is becoming a liability, including how:

- being too competitive makes you less competitive
- defending ideas turns into defending yourself
- winning ideas can be halted by the creator's own intelligence and talent
- desiring respect and recognition can interfere with success

With a clear focus on elevating the way you do business, egonomics is a liberating approach to becoming a rare and respected leader.

"[The Gift of Forgiveness] will spark conversations across families, across friendships, at workplaces, everywhere." -Maria Shriver

A fresh, inspiring book on learning how to forgive, and a touching gift for Mother's Day, with firsthand stories from those who have learned to let go of resentment and find peace

"When we learn to embrace forgiveness, it opens us up to healing, hope, and a new world of possibility." --Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt

Written with grace and understanding and based on more than twenty in-depth interviews and stories as well as personal reflections from Schwarzenegger Pratt herself, The Gift of Forgiveness is about one of the most difficult challenges in life--learning to forgive. Here, Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt shows us what we can learn from those who have struggled with forgiveness, some still struggling, and others who have been able to forgive what might seem truly unforgivable. The book features experiences from those well-known and unknown, including Elizabeth Smart, who learned to forgive her captors; Sue Klebold, whose son, Dylan, was one of the Columbine shooters, learning empathy and how to forgive herself; Chris Williams, who forgave the drunken teenager who killed his wife and child; and of course Schwarzenegger Pratt's own challenges and path to forgiveness in her own life. All provide different journeys to forgiveness and the process--sometimes slow and thorny, sometimes almost instantaneous--by which they learned to forgive and let go.

The Gift of Forgiveness is a perfect blend of personal insights, powerful quotations, and hard-won wisdom for those seeking a way to live with greater acceptance, grace, and peace.

    Is there a secret to a good marriage? Lanny Law and Maureen Rogers Law don't propose any hidden formula for success. Rather, they retrace the steps of a loving relationship that all couples pledge to at the time of their wedding and remind husbands and wives of twelve essential ways to improve their relationship. Way 1, for example, is simply "Meet and Do Things Together." When many marriages reach a flat pitch, it is often only because wife and husband have not arranged a given amount of time to be together. The Laws propose putting work and personal interest schedules behind in order to give first priority to simply being together-whether for a walk around the neighborhood, a trip for yogurt, or a weekend getaway. The other ways are equally simple but profound: Way 2 Accept the Similarities and Differences in Each Other Way 3 Strive to Understand Each Other Way 4 Choose to Feel Each Other's Emotions Way 5 Mindfully Nurture Your Love Way 6 Make Your Relationship Priority Number One Way 7 Delight One Another with Touch Way 8 Consciously Balance Togetherness and Uniqueness Way 9 Help One Another Way 10 Resolve Conflicts Before They Get Worse Way 11 Readily Forgive and Reconcile If Possible Way 12 Share Each Other's Joys and Sorrows These twelve ways are all necessary elements for having a better marriage. Having a healthy marriage is one of life's greatest blessings. In a thriving marriage, wife and husband are energized and can withstand just about any circumstances they face. These twelve ways will help you face and prosper through the challenges of marriage.

    Grit; The Power of Passion and Perseverance

    $17.99
    More Info
    In this instant New York Times bestseller, Angela Duckworth shows anyone striving to succeed that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent, but a special blend of passion and persistence she calls "grit." "Inspiration for non-geniuses everywhere" (People).

    The daughter of a scientist who frequently noted her lack of "genius," Angela Duckworth is now a celebrated researcher and professor. It was her early eye-opening stints in teaching, business consulting, and neuroscience that led to her hypothesis about what really drives success: not genius, but a unique combination of passion and long-term perseverance.

    In Grit, she takes us into the field to visit cadets struggling through their first days at West Point, teachers working in some of the toughest schools, and young finalists in the National Spelling Bee. She also mines fascinating insights from history and shows what can be gleaned from modern experiments in peak performance. Finally, she shares what she's learned from interviewing dozens of high achievers--from JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon to New Yorker cartoon editor Bob Mankoff to Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll.

    "Duckworth's ideas about the cultivation of tenacity have clearly changed some lives for the better" (The New York Times Book Review). Among Grit's most valuable insights: any effort you make ultimately counts twice toward your goal; grit can be learned, regardless of IQ or circumstances; when it comes to child-rearing, neither a warm embrace nor high standards will work by themselves; how to trigger lifelong interest; the magic of the Hard Thing Rule; and so much more. Winningly personal, insightful, and even life-changing, Grit is a book about what goes through your head when you fall down, and how that--not talent or luck--makes all the difference. This is "a fascinating tour of the psychological research on success" (The Wall Street Journal).

    Whether you wish to elevate yourself professionally or you want to sustain a healthy, thriving family (or BOTH!), communicating effectively is key. It begins with communicating honestly, first, with yourself. Once you establish that connection, which is a critical first piece, you can move on to connecting honestly and powerfully with others. I am confident that this is the remedy to the current situation we're in--a life where the element of trust in many families and companies remains elusive as we choose the comforts of ambiguity over clear, effective and honest communication. To live "richer" lives, complete with robust relationships and the confidence to ask for what we want and need, we can begin to right this course today. We just need the roadmap; the guide. And here it is.

    Heartwounds (USED)

    $4.99
    More Info

    Trauma has been defined as an interruption of an affiliative or relationship bond. If left unsettled, past grief and psychological trauma can continue to impact our adult relationships and cause us pain in our entire lives. It's possible we may not even realize what is happening to us because usually relationships fail in parts rather than in total. Early childhood losses or traumas can create pain that is relived in adult intimate relationships. Intimacy can provide both an arena for re-enacting old pain and/or healing it. In this fascinating work, noted psychodramatist Tian Dayton shows readers how relationships can be used as a vehicle for healing, personal growth and spiritual transformation. Through fascinating case studies and probing exercises, Dayton helps readers get in touch with the deepest parts of themselves and heal the wounds that plague them.
