"Best Program for High Achievers"
When life loses its meaning, when suddenly the world is turned upside down, when there's nothing left that resembles life as we've known it, where do we find the strength and sustenance to go on? For naval aviator Jerry Coffee and others who were held as prisoners of war in North Vietnam, there was only one choice: to go within. Beyond Survival is a journey into the invincible human spirit that unites heart and mind in a compelling and unforgettable experience.
In today's climate of high-velocity change, you can't get the results you want alone. You need to be able to inspire those around you to do what's necessary to make the impossible a reality.
Your personal and professional success is largely determined by what you say and how you say it. Let communication expert Bert Decker be your guide to the effective communication so essential to today's society (and your place in it!).
"This was not for me"
You can try following the steps of someone else who was successful. You can listen to and practice success formulas. You can get highly motivated. You can be optimistic about every moment in your life. But until you really come to understand your purpose and until you follow your own mission, your achievements will lack fulfillment. This pioneering program helps you chart your own personal journey to excellence.
"Blanchard wisdom at its finest!"
Buried deep in our national psyche is something called The American Dream - the hope that each generation will do better than one before it. You know the longing. You have the dream. It's why you work so hard. But now that you're making money, attaining status and material success, like many people, you may be having second thoughts about what you really need for personal satisfaction. It's not about wanting more money. Not about seeking status and success.
Understanding the difference can help us succeed and help us help others succeed. Why, in the richest country ever to grace the planet earth, do so few really "make it" in a substantial way? When financial and educational freedom are readily available to us all once we understand the factors that separate the winners from the losers. Listen to Earl Nightingale as he pulls out all the stops about who succeeds and who doesn't.
"The incomparable Nightingale"
Once you target your core passion and begin pursuing your personal mission, you'll discover the power and satisfaction of living a deeply meaningful life. Tapping your core passion is the key.

"Loved Earl. Narrator and music sucked"
In flow, everyday experience becomes a moment by moment opportunity for joy and self-fulfillment. Flow is the brain-child of a fascinating psychologist, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, a renowned social scientist who has devoted his life's work to the study of what makes people truly happy, satisfied and fulfilled. While much of the study of psychology investigates disorders of the human mind, Dr. Csikszentmihalyi takes a different route.
"Simple concept, hard to achieve..."
We have all been hurt. You may still be feeling the pain of childhood abuse or neglect, the sting of rejection or abandonment, the shame of prejudice or ridicule. You may have already come far in healing your wounds. But until you can let go of anger, grudges, resentment, and the desire to punish your offender, those wounds will continue to hold you back from loving, giving and living fully.
"Not really groundbreaking."
Love is where there is no fear. Fear is where there is no love. In our age of anxieties, most of us live by complex expectations about what we should achieve, how we should act, and how others should treat us. As a result, we are victimized by guilt and fear - guilt because our standards haven't been met in the past, fear that they won't be met in the future. Inevitable, these negative emotions wreak havoc on our personal relationships, self-esteem, and peace of mind.
"A very good guide or total guilt and forgiveness"
When you have a group of people strongly united and motivated to reach a common goal, almost nothing can stop you from achieving it. In High Performance Teamwork, Doug Jones describes how the nation's top performing corporations are using the team approach to restructure their organizations to make startling improvements in productivity, quality, and profit.
Today's family is very different from the family of 25 years ago. Two-career families are the norm. Single-parent families and those blended from different marriages are as common as the traditional family. Gender roles are changing. We are all crunched for time as we work longer hours and commute further. But the changing family doesn't have to mean the short-changed family.
