Most of us believe that we will finally feel satisfied and content with our lives when we get the good news we have been waiting for, find a healthy relationship, or achieve one of our personal goals. However, this rarely happens. Good fortune is often followed by negative emotions that overtake us and result in destructive behaviors.

This is a insightful book about creative hindrances and creative injuries. He explains the reasons why creative people can’t go to the next level. I disagreed with him about evolution which is a non-proven theory. But this is not a discussion about that.
The important thing is his thoughts about how we all have an area of creative genius and we need to find and express it. I didn’t see too much practical information on how to heal or overcome creative injuries but he does help us understand the reasons we are frustrated in our work sometimes. I would love to be able to discover and express that flow of creativity continually that he talks about. He did give a practical mantra to say about expanding in abundance, success and love. I have been saying this daily and this combined with scriptural principles of abundance is giving me some hope.

The path to your life's work is difficult and risky, even scary, which is why few finish the journey.

Through personal experience, compelling case studies, and current research on the mysteries of motivation and talent, Jeff shows listeners how to find their vocations and what to expect along the way.

Successful people confront well. They know that setting healthy boundaries improves relationships and can solve important problems. They have discovered that uncomfortable situations can be avoided or resolved through direct conversation. But most of us don't know how to have difficult conversations, and we see confrontation as scary or adversarial. Authors Henry Cloud and John Townsend take the principles from their best-selling book, Boundaries, and apply them to a variety of the most common difficult situations and relationships.

The lioness rises from her slumber, a magnificent image of strength, passion, and beauty. Her mere presence commands the landscape, protects her young, and empowers the lion. In groups, lionesses become a creative and strategic force to be reckoned with, acting as one to change the world around them. You too are a lioness. In Lioness Arising, author and speaker Lisa Bevere offers the life and image of the lioness as a fierce and tender model for women.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough! Every woman who loves Jesus Christ must read this book! This book is well written and researched with quotes from famous people who have made a difference. This book only motivate you to let your voice and your roar be heard to protect the young.
The author uses the picture and the characteristics of a lioness to show how powerful, wise and effective we can be when we join together to protect our children. Darkness has overtaken our world while we were sleeping, but now we can arise and roar and we must! Stop what you're you are reading and move this book to top of your list!

One afternoon - after another failed attempt to get motivated to exercise - I (accidentally) started my first mini habit. I initially committed to do one push-up, and it turned into a full workout. I was shocked. This "stupid idea" wasn't supposed to work. I was shocked again when my success with this strategy continued for months (and to this day). I had to consider that maybe I wasn't the problem in those 10 years of mediocre results. Maybe it was my prior strategies that were ineffective, despite being oft-repeated as "the way to change" in countless books.

If you want to have good insight and advice about writing short Kindle books this is a good book to read. I especially liked his emphasis on quality in the editing process. His advice to take your time with your book and let it simmer a while is not your normal advice. This slow cooking approach is refreshing in a microwave world.

Personal Organizing Coach Marin Rose argues that we're all in a toxic relationship with our stuff and that we've got some serious thinking to do before we can expect to make lasting, positive change. In this book, she explores the common emotional barriers to people reducing consumption and ownership, from personal feelings of anxiety, guilt, and regret, to our faith in the omnipresent American illusion that stuff is a direct path to happiness.
