Welcome to the Jungle, Revised Edition

By

A Bipolar Guide from a Bipolar Person

Welcome to the Jungle has a greater focus on bipolar people, not the diagnosis: the ways in which each person can find his or her own way through the extreme emotional states and intense experiences that we are calling “bipolar”—whether that means medication or meditation, psychiatrists or vision quests, good sleep or good all-night dancing, or a little bit of everything.

An honest, relatable book that can help you figure out how to live your life with bipolar disorder. Many bipolar books are too clinical, too alarmist, and too clearly written for family members and caretakers of people diagnosed with this mood disorder. Welcome to the Jungle is different. Author Hilary Smith wrote this guide because it is the book she wishes she'd been given when she was first diagnosed with bipolar disorder. It answers questions, points to resources, and most of all, comes from someone who understands what it’s like to be thrown off course by an overwhelming mental health issue—and what to do afterwards.

Know that you are not alone—and that many paths can lead to healing. Just like for everyone else, there are many, many paths that bipolar people can take in life. Learn more about how to live your own life with a mental illness using the help of the insights in Welcome to the Jungle, which covers topics such as:

  • Wrapping your head around triggers, causes of mood swings, medications, and therapists
  • Recovering from mental breakdowns, manic moments, and major depressive episodes
  • Living your life beyond the diagnosis—and helping your family to do the same

Readers of bipolar mental health books like The Bipolar WorkbookRock Steady, or OMG That's Me! will love the devastatingly on-target, honest insights offered in Welcome to the Jungle.

*This book is not intended to diagnose, treat, or prevent any illness or act as a substitute for advice from a doctor or psychiatrist.*

How to become Snapchat rich and famous

Social media success story: Here's a living your dreams story that should inspire everyone ─ the living your dreams story of CyreneQ, a modern Cinderella fairy tale. (See: "Here’s how a 26 year-old is making up to $30,000 per Snap on Snapchat", by Morgan Linton, co-founder of Fashion Metric, November 30, 2016)

Creative snapchats & funny snapchat drawings: The next time you are sitting in a long, boring meeting and your mind starts to wander might be the very moment you find your destiny. That is exactly what happened to Cyreneq who began doodling funny Snapchat drawings during a particularly snoozy conference room session. Soon after, she went on to rule that burgeoning social media platform with her Snapchat art and her funny Snapchat drawings. Cyrene Quiamco has become a prominent personality with her creative Snapchats on a social media platform that is designed to make content disappear. Since joining Snapchat, Quiamco (who goes by "CyreneQ" across most social media) has amassed a following for her whimsical Snapchat art ― from celebrity portraits to collages of Disney characters ― and interactive creative Snapchats. She engages her community with her highly imaginative and appealing art, quizzes, games and questions, transforming a series of short-lived snaps into a conversation. She's also the creator of The11thSecond.com, a blog and community for creators of Snapchat art to share their work off the platform. Award-winning CyreneqQ was recently nominated for the Shorty Award which recognizes the best in social media.

Living your dreams ─ Do what you love: This modern fairy tale story (complete with Disney Princess self-portraits of the artist) starts in the Philippines where her family comes from. Cyrene gets her moxie, drive, spirit of self-invention and incredible work ethic from her mom, whom she counts as a main inspiration to be fearless and go for living your dreams. As she puts it, “I've always been an artist ever since elementary school, but I didn't really know how to apply that to the real world.” How she applied her artistry and originality to the modern world of social media is one of the most fantastic social media success stories of the 21st century.

Do what you love the money will follow: Cyrene's Cinderella "living your dreams" story is one that will have you dusting off your dreams. Cyreneq reminds us all of the power of our own imagination. Unleash that and nothing can stop you!

What you’ll learn inside 11 Seconds to Success:

  • How to harness your personal creativity and apply it to the real world
  • What CyreneQ really means in her motto “No excuses for starving artists!”
  • That if you "do what you love the money will follow"
  • How to up your social media IQ and your earning quotient, too!

8 to Your Ideal Weight

By

Reach Your Ideal Body Weight and Stay There

“Her powerful 8-step process offers a path for readers to not only release weight, but to follow their passion and discover their personal greatness.” —Dr. Francois Sauer, MD, author of Relearn, Evolve and Adapt

Heal the root cause of overeating and reshape your body, restore your energy, and reboot your life. The 8 to Your IdealWeight diet-free program is a tried-and-true sugar-free diet, based on an eight-step program that helps you reach your ideal body weight goal—and, most importantly, stay there.

Why do most diets fail? Because mental preparation is the most important first step—and most diets neglect this essential mind-body aspect. Because of this, MK Mueller’s journey to her ideal weight was forty years in the making with a trail of unsuccessful attempts in her wake.

The mind body connection. MK Mueller is a former binge eater and domestic violence survivor who at the age of 34 put together a program for her own recovery and began a support group in her home called “Taking Care of Me.” Almost overnight the group outgrew her living room, and she became an international trainer and TEDx speaker, working with schools, health care organizations, and Fortune 500 companies.

Find your ideal body weight and stay there. With her encouragement and gentle guidance, you can let go of the burden of living life as a weight number and reclaim your self-esteem and personal power. Her program is not about losing weight but “releasing” pounds that no longer serve you, that hold you back and drag you down, make you feel bad about yourself and leave you vulnerable to health risks. Adjust your attitude first, then adjust the way you eat.

Also read MJ Mueller's award-winning Taking Care of Me: The Habits of Happiness, and 8 to Great: The Powerful Process for Positive Change, which are the foundation for the acclaimed 8 to Great curriculum for schools as well as the life-changing 8 to Your IdealWeight program.

Fidel Castro

He towered over his Caribbean island for nearly five decades, a shaggy-bearded figure in combat fatigues whose long shadow spread across Latin America and the world. Few fired the hearts of the world’s restless youth as Castro did when he was young, and few seemed so irrelevant as Castro when he was old — the last Communist, railing on the empty, decrepit street corner that Cuba became under his rule. Fidel Castro: Life and Death of a Dictator follows key events that impacted the Caribbean island, its people, and the world during the tumultuous reign of this controversial dictator.

The Responsive Chord

By

The essential guide to how media shape our lives. By the creator of the most talked about political ad in television history. Tony Schwartz drew on his unparalleled experience in the communications industry to give us The Responsive Chord, an engaging read and one of the seminal books on media. Schwartz came to understand that most advertisers, politicians, and educators―in fact, most all of us―use a model of communication long outmoded by the coming of electronic media. A model which has made us blind to many of the inner workings of modern communication. In The Responsive Chord, he puts forth the resonance principle--that the meaning of an ad (or any other piece of communication) is not present in the ad itself but rather in how the ad relates to the vast array of knowledge and associations already held in the mind of the viewer―both factual and emotional. Thus, audience members do not merely digest a message; they are an essential force in creating it. Schwartz guides us through the many fascinating consequences. The implications for anyone looking to impart a message or influence decisions are enormous. With so many people now getting their information through social media and "fake news" sites, it is crucial that we understand the strong forces by which these outlets act upon us and, yes, manipulate our ideas and actions. The Responsive Chord reveals these forces in a captivating and eye-opening read. "I read The Responsive Chord as a freshman in college and it affected everything I've ever made since. Its message is practical and deep. I'd recommend it to anyone." ― Ira Glass, Creator & Host of NPR's This American Life "Tony Schwartz was a genius in his understanding of the communications revolution of the 20th century. My interview with him was one of my favorites and one of the most important of my own long career in broadcast journalism." ― Bill Moyers, Journalist, Political Commentator and White House Press Secretary "Tony Schwartz was not only an original theorist but a master persuader whose must-read book is brimming with indispensable insight about how humans construct meaning through media." ― Prof. Kathleen Hall Jamieson, Director, Annenberg Public Policy Center "Here's the still-true story about how a media environment can shape our thoughts, our purchases and, yes, our votes. It's not just the content that influences us; if only it were that simple. No, it's the media themselves, the political economy driving them, and the atomizing impact of their targeted messaging. Maybe reading this book will prepare us to think more critically about the way social media is used on, and against us today." ― Douglas Rushkoff, author, Program or Be Programmed, Present Shock, and Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus "The Responsive Chord had a profound impact on me when I first read it as a teenager, and it sparked a lifelong interest in the impact of media and technology in education. Re-reading it today, Tony Schwartz's observations about education in a media-saturated environment are deeply prescient and more relevant than ever." ― Luyen Chou, Chief Product Officer, Pearson Education "I keep talking to Tony, learning from Tony, practically every day. Radio and audio are Tony's World. We just live in it." ― Christopher Lydon, Radio Host of The Connection and Open Source, former New York Times Journalist
