When our embarrassments and fears lie, we often listen to them anyway. They thwart our gratitude, acceptance, and compassion—our goodness. They insist, “I am not worthy.” But we <i>are </i>worthy—of self-discovery, personal growth, and boundless love. With Brené Brown’s game-changing <i>New York Times</i> bestseller <i>The Gifts of Imperfection</i>—which has sold <b>more than 2 million copies </b>in more than <b>30 different languages, </b>and <i>Forbes </i>recently named <b>one of the "Five Books That Will Actually Change Your Outlook On Life"</b>—we find courage to overcome paralyzing fear and self-consciousness, strengthening our connection to the world.<BR><BR>A motivational and inspiring guide to wholehearted living, rather than just the average self-help book, with this groundbreaking work Brené Brown, Ph.D., bolsters the self-esteem and personal development process through her characteristic heartfelt, honest storytelling. With original research and plenty of encouragement, she explores the psychology of releasing our definitions of an “imperfect” life and embracing living authentically. Brown’s “ten guideposts”  are benchmarks for authenticity that can help anyone establish a practice for a life of honest beauty—a perfectly imperfect life.<BR> <BR> Now more than ever, we all need to cultivate feelings of self-worth, as well as acceptance and love for ourselves. In a world where insults, criticisms, and fears are spread too generously alongside messages of unrealistic beauty, attainment, and expectation, we look for ways to “dig deep” and find truth and gratitude in our lives. A new way forward means we can’t hold on too tightly to our own self-defeating thoughts or the displaced pain in our world. Instead, we can embrace the imperfection.

<b><b>The #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestseller. </b>1 million copies sold!<br /><br />From thought leader Brené Brown, a transformative new vision for the way we lead, love, work, parent, and educate that teaches us the power of vulnerability.</b><br /> <br /> <i>“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while <b>daring greatly.</b>”—</i>Theodore Roosevelt<br /><br />Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable or to dare greatly. Based on twelve years of pioneering research, Brené Brown PhD, LMSW, dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and argues that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.<br /><br />Brown explains how vulnerability is both the core of difficult emotions like fear, grief, and disappointment, <i>and</i> the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, empathy, innovation, and creativity. She writes: “When we shut ourselves off from vulnerability, we distance ourselves from the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives.”<br /><br /> <i>Daring Greatly</i> is not about winning or losing. It’s about courage. In a world where “never enough” dominates and feeling afraid has become second nature, vulnerability is subversive. Uncomfortable. It’s even a little dangerous at times. And, without question, putting ourselves out there means there’s a far greater risk of getting criticized or feeling hurt. But when we step back and examine our lives, we will find that nothing is as uncomfortable, dangerous, and hurtful as standing on the outside of our lives looking in and wondering what it would be like if we had the courage to step into the arena—whether it’s a new relationship, an important meeting, the creative process, or a difficult family conversation. <i>Daring Greatly</i> is a practice and a powerful new vision for letting ourselves be seen.

<i>For many of us, feelings of deficiency are right around the corner. It doesn’t take much--just hearing of someone else’s accomplishments, being criticized, getting into an argument, making a mistake at work--to make us feel that we are not okay. Beginning to understand how our lives have become ensnared in this trance of unworthiness is our first step toward reconnecting with who we really are and what it means to live fully. <br /> </i><b>—from <i>Radical Acceptance</i></b><br /><br /> “Believing that something is wrong with us is a deep and tenacious suffering,” says Tara Brach at the start of this illuminating book. This suffering emerges in crippling self-judgments and conflicts in our relationships, in addictions and perfectionism, in loneliness and overwork—all the forces that keep our lives constricted and unfulfilled. Radical Acceptance offers a path to freedom, including the day-to-day practical guidance developed over Dr. Brach’s twenty years of work with therapy clients and Buddhist students.<br /><br /> Writing with great warmth and clarity, Tara Brach brings her teachings alive through personal stories and case histories, fresh interpretations of Buddhist tales, and guided meditations. Step by step, she leads us to trust our innate goodness, showing how we can develop the balance of clear-sightedness and compassion that is the essence of<i> Radical Acceptance. Radical Acceptance</i> does not mean self-indulgence or passivity. Instead it empowers genuine change: healing fear and shame and helping to build loving, authentic relationships. When we stop being at war with ourselves, we are free to live fully every precious moment of our lives.

⭐️⭐️⭐️Update: Now A Wall Street Journal & Publishers Weekly Bestseller ⭐️⭐️⭐️<br /><br />A top performance expert reveals the secret behind many top athletes and executives: creating a heroic alter ego to activate when the chips are down.<br /><br />There's only one person in the way of you untapping your potential: You. There's also one person who can move you out of the way so you can perform at your peak. <br /><br />That person is already inside you. You just need to unlock them. This other part of you is your Alter Ego. After twenty-one years of working with elite athletes, performers and leaders, Todd Herman has discovered how you can use your alter ego to achieve the seemingly impossible. It all clicked for Todd when he met Bo Jackson. <br /><br />When Herman met Bo Jackson, the professional athlete told him, "Bo Jackson never played a down of football in his entire life." Bo explained that when he was young, he'd get into trouble because chaos caused by his anger issues. Then, he saw Friday the 13th and became fascinated by the cold, calculating nature of Jason Vorhees. In that moment, he resolved to stop being Bo Jackson, and start being Jason the moment he stepped on the field. <br /><br />In this transformative guide, Herman reveals for you how to create and control an Alter Ego like Bo--and the thousands of other athletes, business leaders, entrepreneurs, and entertainers who have used this simple tool to change their lives. <br /><br />Herman also shares his own story: he knew that inside was a confident, self-assured, intelligent person who could help others get better results in their lives. When he started using superman's classic trick--putting on a pair of glasses--he learned to trigger the specific traits he needed to achieve his goals.<br /><br /><i>The Alter Ego Effect</i> is not about creating a false mask--it's about using your creative imagination, finding the hero inside, and getting it out into the world with the help of an alter ego. It's a proven way of overcoming the self-doubt, negativity, and insecurity that hold you back, and empowering you to ultimately become your best self.

<strong>You will never diet again.</strong><br /><br />Say goodbye to calorie counting, restrictive food bans, or other forced behaviors. In <em>Mini Habits for Weight Loss</em>, you will learn how to lose weight naturally, in the precise way your body and brain are meant to change.<br /><br /><strong>We’ve blamed ourselves for lack of discipline. That didn’t help.</strong><br /><strong> We’ve blamed calories, carbs, and fat. That didn’t help.</strong><br /><strong> We’ve blamed our diet formulas. That didn’t help.</strong><br /><br /><h2><strong>It’s time we looked at the practice of <em>dieting</em>.</strong></h2><br />Nearly all diets are ineffective because they’re based on <em>dieting</em>. Every person has a <em>diet</em> (noun), but it’s only if you are trying to lose weight that you <em>diet</em> (verb). <em>Dieting</em> is eating and drinking sparingly or selectively to reduce your weight.<br /><br />It doesn’t work. If you’ve tried dieting, you know that.<br /><br />Even the “perfect diet” with the right foods will fail if it’s approached from the traditional dieting perspective. Since weight loss experts are more concerned with biology than neuroscience, we get brilliant discussions on nutrition followed by the same dumb suggestion to “immediately start eating completely different foods than the ones you’re habitually used to eating, and give up everything else.”<br /><br /><h2>Are You Fighting Your Own Body and Brain?</h2><br />The brain resists dramatic behavioral shifts. Recognizing this and developing a strategy around it made the original <em>Mini Habits</em> the #1 selling self-help book in a number of countries. In <em>Mini Habits for Weight Loss</em>, you’ll see that we also biologically resist such changes, which explains why most dieters and smoothie-cleanse aficionados lose weight in the short term, only to gain it all back (and more) when the body adjusts.<br /><br /><strong><em>Mini Habits for Weight Loss</em> will show you how to make dietary changes in a sustainable, permanent way that doesn’t trigger biological or neurological resistance.</strong><br /><br />It’s a specialized version of the method that made the original book a hit in 14 languages. The mini habits remain easy to implement, but the reasoning and supporting tactics are more sophisticated. This is by necessity, as weight loss factors are many and varied. The strategies in the book are rooted in extensive biological and neuroscience research.<br /><br /><h2>You’ll discover:</h2><br /><ul><li>Why it’s a terrible idea to forbid junk food.</li><br /> <li>How some of the most impactful changes you can make don’t involve either diet or exercise.</li><br /> <li>Why conscious calorie restriction causes long-term weight GAIN, and how this science has been publicly available (and ignored) for more than 30 years.</li><br /> <li>How the body’s change process mirrors that of the brain, and why that is great news for losing weight.</li><br /> <li>Creative strategies to mitigate weight gain from eating out, social events, and holiday binge sessions.</li><br /> <li>Why eating fruit is essential to losing weight (for lots of reasons).</li><br /> <li>The role of exercise and an active lifestyle in weight loss, with appropriate strategies.</li></ul><br />Most importantly, you’ll learn how to change your behavior and lose weight in the long term with mini habits.<br /><br />Instead of reading yet another dieting book, why not try a <em>proven behavioral change strategy</em> that your brain and body will welcome and respond to?<br /><br /><h2>Lasting change won't happen until you take that first step toward a strategy that works.</h2> <br />Read <em>Mini Habits for Weight Loss</em>, and you’ll never diet again.

<p>The enemy wants us to feel rejected . . . left out, lonely, and less than. When we allow him to speak lies through our rejection, he pickpockets our purpose. Cripples our courage.
