    Why are some people more successful than others? Self-confidence! What one great goal would you set if you knew you could not fail? What wonderful things would you want to do with your life if you were guaranteed success in anything you attempted? Your level of self-confidence determines the size of the goals you set, the energy and determination that you focus on achieving them, and the amount of persistence you apply to overcoming every obstacle.

    In February 2013 I gave a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast. Standing a few feet from President Obama, I warned my fellow citizens of the dangers facing our country and called for a return to the principles that made America great. Many Americans heard and responded, but our nation’s decline has continued. Today the danger is greater than ever before, and I have never shared a more urgent message than I do now.

    Brian says: "Dr. Ben Carson says it like it is"
    "Great intro to Carson's philosophy of life"
    Overall

    An intimate look into Carson's philosophy on many different topics. Kind of a direct look at what his first 1000 days in office would look like.

    When you possess a confident outlook, you perform at your highest level. When you believe in yourself, the people you rely on, and something ultimately greater than yourself, you will be able to do what you once thought was impossible. Confidence is a function of lifestyle, driven by a guiding set of principles. Listen to this audiobook and discover what Tim learned from his grandmother Billye - concepts handed down from the masters of motivation.

    Jonah Lehrer arms us with the tools we need to figure out how we decide, drawing on cutting-edge research by Daniel Kahneman, Colin Camerer, and others, as well as the real-world experiences of a wide range of "deciders" - from airplane pilots and hedge fund investors to serial killers and poker players. Lehrer shows how people are taking advantage of the new science to make better television shows, win more football games, and improve military intelligence.

    Sarah says: "Summarizes information from several superior books"
    "Great insights into that your mind."

    Dennis Miller is here, folks, and he takes no prisoners. Miller's monologues are funny and angry. They shatter the conventions of comedy by simultaneously making us laugh, think, and seethe. Here at last is a collection of 35 of Miller's favorite invigorating and thought-provoking rants, showcasing his singular point of view. Of course, they're just his opinions. He could be wrong.
