<p>Everyone wants happiness and success, yet the pursuit of both has never been more elusive. As work and personal demands rise, we try to keep up by juggling everything better, moving faster, and doing more. While we might succeed in the short term, this approach comes at a high cost in the long term: it hurts our well-being, our relationships, and—paradoxically—our productivity. </p><p>In this life-changing book, Emma Seppälä explains that the reason we are burning ourselves out is that we fall for outdated theories of success. We are taught that getting ahead means doing everything that’s thrown at us with razor-sharp focus and iron discipline, that success depends on our drive and talents, and that achievement cannot happen without stress. </p><p><em>The Happiness Track</em> demolishes these counterproductive theories. Drawing on the latest scientific research on happiness, resilience, willpower, compassion, positive stress, creativity, and mindfulness, </p><p>Seppälä demonstrates that being happy is the most productive thing we can do to thrive—whether at work or at home. She shares practical strategies for applying these scientific findings to our daily lives. </p><p>A fulfilling, successful, and anxiety-free life is within your reach. <em>The Happiness Track</em> will show you the way.</p><p>Happiness Is the Fast Track to Success</p><p>“Are you a hard-driving, multitasking, conscientiously striving professional? Then your ideas about success are probably all wrong—and you need <em>The Happiness Track</em>, Dr. Emma Seppälä’s investigation into the counter-intuitive factors that create career and life success. The best news of all? All these skills are well within your grasp.”—Daniel H. Pink, author of <em>Drive</em> and <em>A Whole New Mind</em></p><p>“Emma Seppälä convinces us that reconfiguring our brain for happiness can change the way our lives unfold and the way we approach success. A worthwhile read for anyone who wants to achieve a successful and fulfilling life.”—Amy Cuddy, professor at Harvard Business School and author of <em>Presence</em></p><p>“Backed by extensive research in psychology and neuroscience, The Happiness Track offers a wealth of insight on changing how we approach our work, our personal lives, and our relationships. It’s a carefully researched, engaging look at how to improve ourselves without losing our authenticity or our sanity.”—Adam Grant, Wharton professor and New York Times bestselling author of <em>Give and Take and Originals</em></p><p>“Through her research-backed strategies, Emma Seppälä teaches us not only how to thrive in our chosen profession, but how to stay true to ourselves—and enjoy every moment of the process.”—Susan Cain, cofounder of <em>Quiet Revolution</em> and <em>New York Times</em> bestselling author of <em>Quiet </em></p><p>“For decades we’ve been tied to theories of success that have burned us out and driven us into the ground—because we don’t know of any alternatives. The Happiness Track provides us with a highly readable, science-backed solution to obtaining sustainable success, the sort of success we are all really striving for, that leaves us fulfilled, happy, and healthy.”—Scott Barry Kaufman, Ph.D., scientific director at the Imagination Institute at the University of Pennsylvania</p>

<h2>Imperfectionists Accomplish More with Less Stress</h2><br />I remember when I aimed for perfect workouts: 30 minutes was the minimum. <br /><i>I was in lousy shape.</i><br /><br />I remember when I aimed for perfect dating: it couldn't be awkward, forced, or uncertain. <br /><i>I didn't talk to women of interest.</i><br /><br />I remember when I aimed for perfect writing: I wanted 1,000+ words of quality material per day.<br /><i>I played video games instead.</i><br /><br />I carefully avoided mistakes, endlessly ruminated about what I didn’t do, and what I did do wasn't enough. <br /><br /><b>Then, I became an imperfectionist.</b><br /><br />Everything changed. I had fun stories to tell, like the lesbian pizza incident and the most nervous “Hi” ever spoken by a human being. I learned more. I laughed more. I <i>lived more</i>. <br /><br />I got in great shape, read more books, and improved my social skills. I wrote <i>Mini Habits</i>, which became an international bestseller, and is being translated into a dozen languages. <br /><br /><i>I found I could mess up and still win.</i> <br /><br /><h2>What's the New Way to Cure Perfectionism?</h2><br /><b>The old way</b> was to persuade people to “let go” of their need for perfection and hope they can do it. <br /><b>The new way</b> is to persuade people to take simple, but highly-strategic actions, which let them effortlessly experience the process of “letting go" of perfectionism. Over time, these behaviors become habitual and the changes last.<br /><br /><b>The old way</b> was to tell perfectionists fight against and resist all perfectionistic thinking.<br /><b>The new way</b> is to utilize the perfectionist's current desires by redirecting them to healthier applications, resulting in more success with less stress.<br /><br /><b>The old way</b> is based on popular but ineffective traditions of behavioral change, such as motivation-driven living, emotional manipulation, and an overall focus on the self instead of strategy.<br /><b>The new way</b> starts with a deep understanding of how emotion, motivation, fear, action, ambition, desire for comfort, desire for safety, and our insecurities interact with one another to push us to a default state of perfectionism. Which of those factors do we focus on to reverse perfectionism? Well, you've got to read the book to find out the best strategies!<br /><br /><h2>What You'll Discover</h2><ul><li>The lesser known, but most damaging form of perfectionism almost every person has</li><li>A simple-to-apply technique to have unshakable confidence</li><li>Why perfectionism hurts performance, and the rare exception where it helps</li><li>Detailed and customized solutions for these five subsets of perfectionism: need for approval, rumination, unrealistic expectations, concern over mistakes, and doubts about actions</li><li>Fun illustrations with a powerful message to begin each chapter</li><li>...and much more!</li></ul><br /><h2>Imperfectionism Is Freedom</h2><br />Perfectionism is a naturally limiting mindset. For example, kids are taught to color inside the lines, and any color outside the lines is considered a mistake that must be corrected. Imperfectionism frees us to live outside the lines, where possibilities are infinite, mistakes are allowed, and self-judgment is minimal. <br /><br />While the freedom from imperfectionism is impactful, it does not preclude us from having problems. Imperfectionists aren’t so ironic as to have perfect lives, they’re just happier, healthier, and more productive at doing what matters. If that sounds good to you, take the first step into imperfectionism and start reading <i>How To Be An Imperfectionist</i> right now!

<b>Beloved author and teacher Alan Cohen (A Course in Miracles Made Easy) uses his insightful spin on spiritual wisdom to show that we can enjoy significant career and financial success and be true to our passion and soul's calling.</b><br /><br />Can you create material success and keep your spirit alive? Is it possible to combine prosperity with purpose and passion? Can you sell your product without losing your soul?<br /><br />Expert coach and beloved teacher Alan Cohen demonstrates the answer is yes. In <i>Spirit Means Business</i>, he identifies--and then dismantles--the 10 primary illusions that keep us from connecting spirituality and prosperity. To name a few:<br /><br />  <b>*</b>  If you want to succeed, you have to suffer first<br /><br />  <b>*</b>  There's only so much to go around<br /><br />  <b>*</b>  Competition is healthy and necessary<br /><br />  <b>*</b>  To do well in your work, you must give up your life<br /><br />In each case, Alan shows us how to replace the illusion with a higher truth, using principles that always work when we apply them consciously. You'll learn from down-to-earth examples of individuals who have combined soul and success, and you'll find crisp, clear formulas to bridge the gaps and surmount the hurdles along the way.<br /><br />Drawing on wisdom sources from the Tao Te Ching to <i>A Course in Miracles</i>, as well as stories from Alan's clients and his own life, this book will help you navigate a spiritually sound path to the success you desire.

"<i>The Motivation Manifesto</i> is a poetic and powerful call to reclaim our lives and find our own personal freedom. It's a triumphant work that transcends the title, lifting the reader from mere motivation into a soaringly purposeful and meaningful life. I love this book." - Paulo Coelho<br /><br /><i>The Motivation Manifesto</i> is a pulsing, articulate, ferocious call to claim our personal power. World-renowned high performance trainer Brendon Burchard reveals that the main motive of humankind is the pursuit of greater Personal Freedom. We desire the grand liberties of choice-time freedom, emotional freedom, social freedom, financial freedom, spiritual freedom. Only two enemies stand in our way: an external enemy, defined as the social oppression of who we are by the mediocre masses, and an internal enemy, a sort of self-oppression caused by our own doubt and fear.<br /><br />The march to Personal Freedom, Burchard argues, can be won only by declaring our intent and independence, stepping into our personal power, and battling through self-doubt and the distractions of the day until full victory is won. Recalling the revolutionist voices of the past that chose freedom over tyranny, Burchard-at times poetic yet always fierce-motivates us to free ourselves from fear and take back our lives once and for all.
