Prosperity is not something you attain; it's something you tune in to. Few people know that the very words they use either attract or repel prosperity (law of attraction). This book is a compilation of modern and ancient techniques on using the power of the spoken word to attract prosperity and abundance in one's life!

Human instincts for survival instill in us the fear of certain creatures, natural elements, and other threats. This is a natural, normal thing for good reasons. But what happens when a fear turns into a phobia? What can we do when a phobia becomes unmanageable and haunts us regularly? In this concise guide, you will find answers and solutions. Arachnophobia (that stems from the Greek words for “fear of spiders”) is a common, well-known phobia. But there are many other phobias, including some less frequently mentioned ones that may surprise you.

Dhammapada means "the path of dharma", the path of harmony and righteousness that anyone can follow to reach the highest good. This classic Buddhist scripture is a collection of vivid, practical verses gathered from direct disciples who wanted to preserve what they had heard from the Buddha himself. Easwaran's translation of this classic Buddhist text is the best-selling translation in the US.

There's no other book like this. Longtime running writer Scott Douglas marshals expert advice (including his own, cultivated from more than 100,000 miles of personal experience), and a growing body of scientific research to show how running can make us happier. How? Everyone knows that running builds stronger muscles and a healthier heart; science now shows it also helps develop a healthier brain. For those struggling with depression and anxiety, a consistent running routine can enhance the mental-health benefits of talk therapy, antidepressants, and cognitive behavioral therapy.

Eighty percent of the average person's inner mental chatter is negative. But everyone has the power to change theirs. Want to achieve your goals, be more content with yourself, and live your best life? Don't let negative thinking hold you back. Changing how you talk to yourself in your thoughts - with self-love, positive thinking, and constructive feedback - is the most effective way to change your approach to your exercise routine, diet, relationships, work, and life.
