<p><strong>"</strong><strong>Mitch Albom has done it again with this moving memoir of love and loss. You can’t help but fall for Chika. A page-turner that will no doubt become a classic.” --Mary Karr, author of <em>The Liars’ Club</em> and <em>The Art of Memoir</em></strong></p><p><strong>From the #1 <em>New York Times</em> bestselling author of <em>Tuesdays With Morrie</em> comes Mitch Albom’s most personal story to date: an intimate and heartwarming memoir about what it means to be a family and the young Haitian orphan whose short life would forever change his heart. </strong></p><p>Chika Jeune was born three days before the devastating earthquake that decimated Haiti in 2010. She spent her infancy in a landscape of extreme poverty, and when her mother died giving birth to a baby brother, Chika was brought to The Have Faith Haiti Orphanage that Albom operates in Port Au Prince.<br /> <br /> With no children of their own, the forty-plus children who live, play, and go to school at the orphanage have become family to Mitch and his wife, Janine. Chika’s arrival makes a quick impression. Brave and self-assured, even as a three-year-old, she delights the other kids and teachers. But at age five, Chika is suddenly diagnosed with something a doctor there says, “No one in Haiti can help you with.”<br /> <br /> Mitch and Janine bring Chika to Detroit, hopeful that American medical care can soon return her to her homeland. Instead, Chika becomes a permanent part of their household, and their lives, as they embark on a two-year, around-the-world journey to find a cure. As Chika’s boundless optimism and humor teach Mitch the joys of caring for a child, he learns that a relationship built on love, no matter what blows it takes, can never be lost.<br /> <br /> Told in hindsight, and through illuminating conversations with Chika herself, this is Albom at his most poignant and vulnerable. Finding Chika is a celebration of a girl, her adoptive guardians, and the incredible bond they formed—a devastatingly beautiful portrait of what it means to be a family, regardless of how it is made.</p>

To make the journey into the Now we will need to leave our analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. From the very first page of Eckhart Tolle's extraordinary book, we move rapidly into a significantly higher altitude where we breathe a lighter air. We become connected to the indestructible essence of our Being, “The eternal, ever present One Life beyond the myriad forms of life that are subject to birth and death.” Although the journey is challenging, Eckhart Tolle uses simple language and an easy question and answer format to guide us. <br /><br />A word of mouth phenomenon since its first publication, The Power of Now is one of those rare books with the power to create an experience in readers, one that can radically change their lives for the better.

<p>Who are you? When you start to explore this question, you find out how elusive it really is. Are you a physical body? A collection of experiences and memories? A partner to relationships? Each time you consider these aspects of yourself, you realize that there is much more to you than any of these can define. <strong>The Untethered Soul</strong>, spiritual teacher Michael Singer explores the question of who we are and arrives at the conclusion that our identity is to be found in our consciousness, the fact of our ability to observe ourselves, and the world around us. By tapping into traditions of meditation and mindfulness, Singer shows how the development of consciousness can enable us all to dwell in the present moment and let go of painful thoughts and memories that keep us from achieving happiness and self-realization. </p><p>This book, copublished with the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), offers a frank and friendly discussion of consciousness and how we can develop it. In part one, he examines the notion of self and the inner dialogue we all live with. Part two examines the experience of energy as it flows through us and works to show readers how to open their hearts to the energy of experience that permeates their lives. Ways to overcome tendencies to close down to the rest of the world are the subject of part three. Enlightenment, the embrace of universal consciousness, is the subject of part four. And finally, in part five, Singer returns to daily life and the pursuit of unconditional happiness. Throughout, the book maintains a light and engaging tone, free from heavy dogma and prescriptive religious references. The easy exercises that figure in each chapter help readers experience the ideas that Singer presents.</p>

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.

<p><b>"This is your wake-up call! You may not have even realized you were sleep-walking. Most of us are most of the time. <i>Awareness</i> is an eye-opener. It's Anthony de Mello telling you gently but firmly, 'It's time to get up now.'" --Charles Osgood of "CBS Sunday Morning" and "The Osgood File"<br /><br />"<i>Awareness</i> will be the critical test of American business in the next decade. I call it the 'business of awareness.'" --F.X. Maguire, Hearth Communications Group<br /></b><br /><br />The heart of Anthony de Mello's bestselling spiritual message is awareness.

And this only happens, he insists, by becoming alive to the needs and potential of others, whether at home or in the workplace.<br /><br />Here, then, is a masterful book of the spirit, challenging us to wake up in every aspect of our lives.</p>

<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.

<p><strong>From the author of <em>Mini Habits</em> comes a smarter approach to habit-building.</strong></p><p><strong>In <em>Elastic Habits</em>, You’ll Learn How to:</strong></p><ul><li>Strengthen existing or new habits by making them elastic</li><li>Easily overcome resistance at any time (and never have a “zero day” again)</li><li>Use vertical and lateral flexibility to create <em>nine win conditions</em> for each habit</li><li>Effectively triple your motivation by using all three of its “sweet spots” (standard habits use only one)</li><li>Create a custom and flexible habit plan that fits your unique life</li></ul><h2><strong>How Flexible Habits Bring the Greatest Results </strong></h2><p>In your journey to form better habits for a better life, you will face ups and downs. What is the ideal response to these?</p><p><em>Varied</em>.</p><p><strong>What works best in habit pursuit one day might not work <em>at all</em> the next day.</strong></p><p>Flexible habits are better than small habits; they’re better than large habits. Why? <em>Flexible habits give you the power and benefits of all goal sizes</em>—meaning more success in more situations.</p><h2><strong>Adapt and Conquer the Day</strong></h2><p>Chinese war strategist Sun Tzu said, “Do not repeat the tactics which have gained you one victory, but let your methods be regulated by the infinite variety of circumstances.”</p><p>If you pick up any other habit book besides this one, it’s going to suggest that you make your habits the same thing every day, <em>incapable of adapting to the environment</em>. It will ask you to repeat the same tactics every day. That's why people quit—their habits can’t adapt when “life happens.”</p><p>Wouldn't it be smarter to be able to adapt your habits precisely to the unique situations you face? Yes, of course! I call them <em>elastic habits</em>.</p><h2><strong>What Is an Elastic Habit?</strong></h2><p>Elastic habits are daily behaviors with multiple win conditions. You get to choose your win condition every day, because some days you feel like you’re being attacked by a bear and other days <em>you feel like the bear</em>.</p><p>Most people associate “elastic” with yoga pants and rubber bands. But the word also means “resilient”—the ability to withstand pressure.</p><p>Non-elastic habits are rigid: the same behavior is done at the same time to the same level every day. The pressures of modern life tend to break such rigid and brittle shells. Elastic habits are fluid: they can change their form and intensity to suit each unique day. They survive busy, tired, bad days. They thrive on better days. </p><p><strong>Elastic habit example (fitness):</strong> </p><ul><li><strong>Monday:</strong> You're tired and busy, so you do 5 push-ups to meet the easy level. Easy success!</li><li><strong>Tuesday:</strong> You have more time, energy, and motivation, so you go to the gym for a 45-minute workout. Big success!</li><li><strong>Wednesday:</strong> You feel somewhere in between, and do a workout video for 20 minutes. Moderate success! </li></ul><p>All three days were winners, and valuable contributions to building your habit. With what I call “3x3 flexibility,” elastic habits give you <em>nine</em> win conditions instead of one, giving you the ability to adapt to the positive and negative circumstances you encounter; that's a recipe for forming life-changing habits.</p><p>Whether it’s fatigue or a busy day, your elastic habit can adapt to the exact threat it faces. And if the wind is at your back, watch out world, because your elastic habit can also expand for an inspiring big win! That's what makes an elastic habit smarter (and more fun) than the rest.</p><p>Give your habits the superpower of elasticity to survive and thrive in all circumstances. Read <em>Elastic Habits, </em>and experience the freedom of flexibliity.</p>
