<b>The inspiring #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestseller that "should be read by every leader in America." (<i>Wall Street Journal</i>)</b><br /><br /><strong>"Powerful." --<em>USA Today</em></strong><br /><br /> <strong>"Full of captivating personal anecdotes from inside the national security vault." --<em>Washington Post</em></strong><br /><br /><strong><em>"</em>Superb, smart, and succinct." --<em>Forbes</em></strong><br /><br /><strong>BASED ON THE INCREDIBLE GRADUATION SPEECH WITH OVER 14 MILLION VIEWS ON YOUTUBE</strong><br /><i><br />If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed.</i><br /><br /><i></i>On May 17, 2014, Admiral William H. McRaven addressed the graduating class of the University of Texas at Austin on their Commencement day. Taking inspiration from the university's slogan, "What starts here changes the world," he shared the ten principles he learned during Navy Seal training that helped him overcome challenges not only in his training and long Naval career, but also throughout his life; and he explained how anyone can use these basic lessons to change themselves-and the world-for the better.<br /><br />Admiral McRaven's original speech went viral with over 10 million views. Building on the core tenets laid out in his speech, McRaven now recounts tales from his own life and from those of people he encountered during his military service who dealt with hardship and made tough decisions with determination, compassion, honor, and courage. Told with great humility and optimism, this timeless book provides simple wisdom, practical advice, and words of encouragement that will inspire readers to achieve <i>more</i>, even in life's darkest moments.

<b><b>The #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestseller. </b>1 million copies sold!<br /><br /><b>Don’t miss the hourlong Netflix special <i>Brené Brown: The Call to Courage</i>!</b><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.

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.

I lived nearly two decades of my life in secrecy. I had become a mystery to myself. A fraudulent whisper of a woman, smiling behind the camera of life, pretending. I was the core of my secret life. Until it all came tumbling down around me. Walking away from the rubble, I discovered self-love. I found dignity, honesty, openness, and compassion. Infidelity broke my marriage and forced me to look in the mirror and truthfully answer the most important questions of my life. “Who am I?” “Why am I here?” And, “What do I want?” Single, Again is an intimate journal of a woman who finds herself. And it’s the greatest discovery imaginable.

Learn why boundaries are not bad, why humility is hard, how to milk your momentum, how passion powers progress, why persistence is a virtue and patience is not optional. Learn how to be your own cheerleader, know your own creative cycle, and say so long to the Sunday night blues. Most importantly, learn how curiosity is the new vulnerability, and why, without it, self-discipline will never last. Do you struggle with finishing projects? Need to lose weight? Can’t get to bed at a reasonable hour? We all know we need more self-discipline, yet most of us are a bit foggy on what it actually is. Is it being on time to everything? Or early? Waking up at 5am? Doing everything everyone asks us to, on time, all the time? Or is it something more meaningful, more nourishing? This handbook will teach you how to take joy in cultivating self-discipline. Learn what it is, how to get it, why we need it, how to keep it, and why we want it. It also covers the major stumbling blocks in our way, both internally and externally. If you could use a boost of self-discipline along with a healthy dose of self-confidence, pick up this handbook today. You can’t afford not to.
