Achieve Your Goal in 66 Days

Create new habits—and stick with them: Routines can be hard to establish. Often, our goals require us to make difficult changes in our daily lives. This daily journal by cutting-edge speaker and bestselling author Matthew Mockridge serves as a “training partner” to help us create and firmly integrate healthy routines into everyday life.

Find passion through practice: We don’t need to find our true passion before we commit to a consistent routine. As readers of the 66 Day Journal will learn, it is only through maintaining regular habits that true passion emerges. When we work hard to become good at something, such as healthy eating, maintaining a regular sleep schedule, or exercising regularly, we’ll find that our passion for the topic grows.

Ask quality questions, have a quality life: If we aren’t asking ourselves the important questions—“What am I proud of? What could I have done better?”—then maintaining healthy habits is harder than ever. This guided journal walks us through the difficult questions we should be asking ourselves every day. The carefully constructed questions combine mindfulness, positive psychology, and proven strategies for increased productivity to help you stay on track.

Dive into Matthew Mockridge’s 66 Day Journal and learn how to:

  • Break down overwhelming “marathon” goals into 66 achievable mini goals
  • Set a goal using the SMART theory (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time-bound)
  • Visualize where you want to be and work to get there

If you’ve enjoyed titles such as The High Performance PlannerMy 66-Day Challenge Habit Tracker and Goal Planner, and Hello New Me, then you’ll love Matthew Mockridge’s 66 Day Journal: A Guided Journal for Creating New Habits.

Our Words Restore Us

By

Using Your Words to Heal

A holistic approach to recovering from trauma: Creative writing is increasingly becoming a go-to method for trauma recovery. There is great power in the written word, and even more so when those words are our own. Journaling provides a cathartic release of emotions because it allows us to not only process past experiences but also reflect on how we’re feeling in the present moment. In this way, writing is one of the most easily accessible self-care practices.

Give voice to what has been silenced: Healing from trauma can be a slow and painful process, especially for sexual trauma survivors, who are often shamed into keeping their experience to themselves. This companion journal to Jen Cross's book Writing Ourselves Whole is a space to put the pain on a page, and in doing so, release the hold it has on us and restore our bodies and minds.

Creativity as a tool for change: Trauma and violence leave a distinct mark on our lives, one that is not easily erased. Writing on our own or with a community or group can be an extremely transformative process for creating change both within ourselves and socially. It encourages discussions about mental and emotional health that lead to finding more approaches to healing.

Jen Cross has worked with sexual trauma survivors for over fifteen years and founded an organization that is devoted to creating spaces for survivors to write and talk about their experiences. In this self-help journal, you will find:

  • A 60-day guided journey to healing from your experience
  • Sixteen writing exercises that gently prompt writers deeper into their experiences and into renewal
  • Follow-up readings, additional exercises, and suggested uses for your writing

If you’ve worked through books such as Start Where You AreHealing the Wounded Heart, and Present, Not Perfect then Our Words Restore Us will provide further support and restoration for your healing process.

It’s Your Weirdness that Makes You Wonderful

By

A Lesson in Self-Acceptance from Affirming Animals

From the author of the bestselling book, You Can Do All Things

Step into a state of mindfulness: Depression and anxiety are topics that can be uncomfortable to talk about, but that doesn’t mean they should be avoided. If anything, it means we need to be more aware and have more conversations about them. With the help of her adorable illustrations, art blogger Kate Allan (known through her remarkably popular Tumblr blog as “The Latest Kate”) urges us to be mindful of our mentality.

Work through anxiety and depression with the help of enlightening words: Allan, who suffers from anxiety and depression herself, understands what it’s like to deal with feelings that are difficult to fight through. In this book, she provides the personal kind of encouragement that she herself needs to hear. These encouraging words, along with writing prompts, can help readers sort through and express their feelings.

Practice self-love through self-care: Kate Allan’s creative journal meets us where we are—in the midst of the feelings that say we’re not enough, we can’t handle this life, we won’t make it. Her whimsical art and simple words lift trampled spirits and combat thoughts that lead us to believe our weirdness makes us weak. Young and old, we are encouraged to love ourselves exactly as we are.

In this collection of affirming illustrations, It’s Your Weirdness That Makes You Wonderful, you will find:

  • A source of colorful and creative validation and affirmations for the struggles you face and the feelings of depression that may accompany them
  • Anxiety-reducing visual art and journaling prompts to better understand and process your mental health
  • Support animals in book-form that come along with you wherever you need them!

Readers of Made Out of StarsMy Friend FearStart Where You Are, and You’re Weird will find further comfort and healing in Kate Allan’s It’s Your Weirdness That Makes You Wonderful.

The Illusion of Invincibility

By

A GLIMPSE BEHIND THE FACADE OF SUCCESS

In The Illusion of Invincibility, Paul Williams  and  Andreas  Krebs take  a  no-punches-held  look  at  the  stories  we  tell  ourselves  about business success. The rags-to-riches tale is tempting, but we don’t have to search far to see that most organizations rise for a time, only to experience a dramatic fall from grace. Just look at some of the companies that used to be household names: Nokia, AOL, Pan Am, Woolworth and Blockbuster.

Move from good to great: You’ll learn the secrets to clear-eyed, value-driven leadership with stories from top managers from international  companies, major family  businesses, start-ups, consulting firms, the public sector, and NGOs. They offer lessons on how to be a successful and reflective boss in an age of digitization and disruption. Each chapter includes a “stress test” to help you to take an honest look at your own organization and yourself.

Can leaders today be inspired by the Incas? You may be surprised. When the authors added a few days to a business trip to Peru, instead of relaxing, they found themselves exploring one of the greatest civilizations in human history...with unexpected lessons about successful businesses and great leadership.

The Illusion of Invincibility examines the why of success and failure. It’s a smart, funny, and radical look at how to build and sustain a great organization, inspired by those who have done it well...in ­today’s world and five hundred years ago.

A Bright Clean Mind

By

A Bright Clean Mind will be a breezy yet substantial read that lends itself to “dipping back in,” a paperback original with a 5.5” x 8.5” trim size for portability (and gift-ability!) The readership is much the same as well: creative people who want to evolve out of the anxiety and frustration that have characterized so much of their artistic process up to now. A Bright Clean Mind will be primarily for “veg-curious” creatives—artists and entrepreneurs who have heard a plant-based diet is better for their health, but haven’t yet made the connections between diet, empathy for non-human animals, and creative output—though it will also appeal to readers who are already moving toward a more compassionate lifestyle, as well as vegans seeking creative inspiration. Now that the older members of Generation Z (no doubt the most politically-engaged generation since the 1960s) are purchasing their own food, plant protein and non-dairy products will eventually dominate the market—and these young vegans (and “vegan-ish”) will reach for books on creativity and culture that reflect their values. As veganism goes truly mainstream, artists and entrepreneurs of older generations who routinely experience anxiety, frustration, and other corrosive emotions will be ever more receptive to A Bright Clean Mind's message, too.

Postcards to the Universe

By

Have you ever wanted a way to bend the ear of the Universe – that is, the loving energy behind all creation? Yes, that Universe, the one that renders absolute and perfect manifestation. Know that the Universe hears what is in your heart. It hears exactly what you want for your greatest life. In Postcards to the Universe: A Global Movement for Manifestation, artist-photographer Melisa Caprio offers a way to combine art, love and manifestation that will lead you to everything your heart desires. It is a self-help personal development/spirituality book with a strong visual component. Postcards to the Universe is a visual jewel. Lush with imaginative images and poignant with heartfelt words, this beautiful book is already igniting a creative fire in manifesters everywhere. This is creative visualization with the power of intention times three. In Postcards to the Universe readers envision an inspired and fulfilled life. Through photography, art collages and written messages, Postcards to the Universe beckons the Universe to listen to our deepest desires. It is collaboration between Caprio and the beautiful souls who contributed to this project through her popular blog, postcardstotheuniverse.com, weekly internet radio show at 12radio.com and interactive webinars. We all wish. We are already good at wishing before we blow out the candles on our first birthday cake. We are wishing when we pull on a wishbone. We are wishing when we throw coins in a fountain. But then the wish is gone, rarely thought of again, if ever. And we go back to our daily lives – stress, strain and struggle. We nestle back into our comfort zones, which may not really all that comfortable. Too often we don’t stop to even ask the question that leads to our heart’s desire: But if you had the Universe’s ear, where you could harness your own power, reach your full potential and tap into your deepest creativity, what then? Wouldn’t you ask? People have found it works “because you are literally telling the Universe that you are serious this time,” Caprio says. “You’re ready, really ready, to begin the process of receiving your deepest desires” Postcards to the Universe is your conduit to success. Postcards to the Universe, A Global Movement for Manifestation is not just a beautiful fine art book but an ongoing project and movement. Postcards to the Universe empowers people to get clear and creative about living an inspired life. Though art and photography, we get to see peoples' desires manifest. Caprio photographs each postcard as she receives it. She intuits by each person’s specific manifestation how she is going to photograph their postcard. Caprio is inspired by helping people get creative and collaborate with her to push this movement forward. She asks the Universe to send her postcards. Each postcard is transformed into its own powerful intention. Already this project has taken law of attraction to a whole new level. Now, the book promises to take it even higher. It is visual. It is tactile. It brims with heartfelt desire. It’s in deep conversation with the Universe. The wishes inside are infused with the energy and spirit of the contributors of this book. The book itself vibrates at a higher level.

The High Achiever's Guide

By

Are you trapped in a gilded cage of your own making? Successful, but not necessarily fulfilled? Stuck, but not sure why or how to get unstuck? Your life looks fantastic on paper. You’re making money, have a career, family, lifestyle, etc. that you thought you always wanted. But now you’re there and it’s not all you expected it to be. If this sounds familiar, you’re not alone. But where do you begin? You want life to be better, but you don’t know *how* to make it better. The High Achievers Guide: Embrace the Uncomfortable, Do the Deep Work, and Create the Life You Are Here to Live provides the reader with the tools, mindset and process to do the deep emotional work, get clarity, and create the life that is truly aligned to them. A dismal 1 out of 3 people reports feeling happy with their lives. And what does happiness mean anyway? Is it fulfillment? What does fulfillment mean? Is your definition the same as the person next to you? To have something you’ve never had, you have to be willing to do something you’ve never done. You need the tools and process to determine what fulfillment means to you. The High Achievers Guide guides you through four major themes of personal development: · Clarity regarding your baseline – how you’ve been programmed to operate and how to identify the limiting beliefs and outdated mindset that holds you back · What drives you – achievement-oriented focus largely defined by outside factors rather than internal drivers · How to leave behind outdated programming and make space for the new, updated mindset that will take you to the next level of operation · Taking inspired action and committing to the vision you have created for your life A former corporate career professional, Maki Moussavi grew up in midwestern small-town America, a first-generation citizen born to immigrants. Her early life was filled with messages of hard work, chasing the dream, getting the degrees, and making the money. After creating the “success” that she’d been taught to value, she found herself questioning how the hell she ended up feeling stuck, restless and unfulfilled. An avid consumer of self-help, she found that the literature available, while helpful in the pursuit of personal betterment, didn’t quite get her to where she needed to be. She discovered the key to deep and rapid transformation is a willingness to do the uncomfortable self-examination and commit to raising the bar of expectation in pursuit of thriving rather than surviving.

Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety

By

#1 Amazon Best Seller! — A Guidebook for Parents Navigating the New Teen Years

Learn about the “New Teen” and how to adjust your parenting approach. Kids are growing up with nearly unlimited access to social media and the internet, and unprecedented academic, social, and familial stressors. Starting as early as eight years old, children are exposed to information, thought, and emotion that they are developmentally unprepared to process. As a result, saving the typical “teen parenting” strategies for thirteen-year-olds is now years too late.

Urgent advice for parents of teens. Dr. John Duffy’s parenting book is a new and necessary guide that addresses this hidden phenomenon of the changing teenage brain. Dr. Duffy, a nationally recognized expert in parenting for nearly twenty-five years, offers this book as a guide for parents raising children who are growing up quickly and dealing with unresolved adolescent issues that can lead to anxiety and depression.

Unprecedented psychological suffering among our young and why it is occurring. A shift has taken place in how and when children develop. Because of the exposure they face, kids are emotionally overwhelmed at a young age, often continuing to search for a sense of self well into their twenties. Paradoxically, Dr. Duffy recognizes the good that comes with these challenges, such as the sense of justice instilled in teenagers starting at a young age.

Readers of this book will:

  • Sort through the overwhelming circumstances of today’s teens and better understand the changing landscape of adolescence
  • Come away with a revised, conscious parenting plan more suited to addressing the current needs of the New Teen
  • Discover the joy in parenting again by reclaiming the role of your teen’s ally, guide, and consultant

If you enjoyed parenting books such as The Yes BrainHow to Raise an AdultThe Deepest Well, and The Conscious Parent; then Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety should be next on your list!
