Acts of Achievers: 4 Simple Self Help Habits That Will Change Your Life And Help You Create Success Faster – by Ola Adisa

We know we are not where we want to be and have not achieved our dreams. Some of us think we don’t have what it takes and that achieving our goals is too daunting. We may have experienced painful failures in the past. Or maybe we think it’s not yet the time to make our move, so we delay taking any action. The rest of us may think in terms of luck. We feel we were not born with a silver spoon, have no opportunities around us, or are not endowed with any natural talent. The list goes on.

We all desire success, but knowing how to achieve it can sometimes be a mystery. You might worry you are on the wrong path. How do you know you are doing something that best suits you? Even when you know the required steps, you might struggle to take action. There has to be a better approach.

This book is for everyone who struggles with self-doubt issues. It will teach you the skills, outcomes, and practices that will lead to your ultimate goal of finding your direction in life in a way that makes sense and with which you can associate. It is not some rambling generalized do-it-yourself guide that leads nowhere.

Apotheosis Now – by Yanhao Huang

A mind that is fragmented and sees the world in terms of what is me and not me, good and bad, will be caught in endless conflict. Because externally, we are always trying to control what is “not me,” and internally, we always get perplexed trying to figure out whether our actions came from our “higher” or “lower” self. As Albert Einstein said: “We can not solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.” This book will help you to understand:

  • Why we have internal conflicts
  • How does our ego trap us in undesirable circumstances
  • How do our beliefs limit us
  • Why thought-based teachings (Law of Attraction), or self-improvement advice don’t work
  • How do we really get what we want
  • Why is happiness so rare for us
  • Who we are really
  • What is the nature of existence
  • What is the meaning of life
  • How do we know if there is a God
  • What is the process of spiritual enlightenment

Worship in the Wilderness: Let Praise Lead the Way (Christian Devotional Collaborations) – by Michael Lacey

We are called to worship at all times: on mountaintops, in the valleys, in the land of promise, and in the wilderness. For you, the wilderness may be a financial drought, or maybe physical, emotional, or spiritual. These seasons are not usually the direct result of sin but rather a God-ordained time for you to learn more about His character and will for your life.

You are not alone. People throughout the Bible have gone through wilderness seasons: Job, Elijah, Paul, and Jesus, many of whom were righteous and blameless. Yet they still showed us how to grow closer to God through it all.

And that’s what the Devo Writers in this collaboration hope to do.

You will be inspired by this month long, daily devotional from multiple best-selling authors and some new writers! Join these Devo Writers as they share personal stories what worship means to them. Imagine what it can mean for you to grow in your understanding of praise to God.

Wild Happy: Dreams, Crises, and Acceptance in the Jungles of Paua New Guinea – by Ryan Casseau

At 24, Ryan Casseau set off for the most remote jungle he could find, the farthest corner of Papua New Guinea, alone, and without a single contact in his future home.

It was powered by 10 years of fantasy, but it wasn’t a vacation. He was there to collect plants in an effort to discover medicines from those who rely on the forest.

But while he was worried about getting work done and getting back to civilization, something unexpected got in the way: everything.

In equal parts humorous, unnerving, uplifting, and reflective, “Wild Happy” fiercely captures a bewildered boy and the lost world that took him in, shared its hidden wisdom, and changed his life forever.

The speed and complexity of change in business practice has never been greater than today. Navigating this “new and lasting norm” requires for any organization, besides other factors, two principal elements: Managers and leaders who are capable of coaching their team members as well as a new type of workforce that can quickly adapt to changing environments, can acquire new skills necessary to be successful in the future, and is willing and capable of stepping up to take over responsibility.

Successful coaching will result in higher job satisfaction (for both coach and coachee), better work and business results, and superior retention levels: A long-term win for both the organization, its employees, and customers.

Based on extensive interviews with both tenured leaders and new employees, focus groups with learning & development experts, and a comprehensive literature research as well as the author ́s own in-depth coaching knowledge and expertise, this book proposes an academically researched, developed, and validated model of eight dimensions of successful coaching as well as a five-step implementation plan which can be used as an impactful framework to embed coaching skills in organizational settings to create a sustainable and growth-generating coaching culture.
