<b>From the New York Times best-selling author of The Tapping Solution for Weight Loss and Body Confidence, the latest book in the Tapping Solution series uses EFT as a tool for finding the clarity and the ease you need to navigate change.</b><br /><br />Why do we fear the unknown so intensely that we're willing to shy away from our deepest desires and settle for playing small? Why do we get enthused when we first start something, only to burn out the moment things feel challenging? Why does getting what we want sometimes feel just as scary as not getting what we want? And why, even with new outcomes we desire, do we often struggle to sustain them and instead slip back into old, self-sabotaging patterns?<br />Jessica Ortner asked herself these question--as many of us do--until eventually it became clear that she was really exploring our relationship with the one unavoidable constant in our lives: change. Her new book, the latest in the best-selling Tapping Solution series, shares the lessons she's learned about what it feels like to flow through change and how to create positive, lasting change in ways that feel both authentic and empowering. <br />Ultimately, Jessica tells us, there's profound beauty and joy in change, even when it doesn't feel that way at the start. Readers will learn how to use Tapping (also known as Emotional Freedom Techniques, or EFT) to navigate the unknown with new energy, hope, and an open heart. Topics include: <br />  <b>*</b>  Finding our way through fear and uncertainty<br />  <b>*</b>  Discerning whether our inner critical voice is friend or foe<br />  <b>*</b>  Learning to release the doubts and fears that cloud our judgment<br />  <b>*</b>  Getting past procrastination<br />  <b>*</b>  Letting go of "goals" and finding a new way to focus on what you desire<br />  <b>*</b>  And much more<

<p><strong>Internationally acclaimed, bestelling author Byron Katie’s most anticipated work since <em>Loving What Is</em></strong></p><p>We live in difficult times, leaving far too many of us suffering from anxiety and depression, fear and anger. In her new and most anticipated work since <em>Loving What Is</em>, beloved spiritual teacher Byron Katie provides a much-needed beacon of light, and a source of hope and joy.</p><p>In <em>A Mind at Home with Itself</em>, Byron Katie illuminates one of the most profound ancient Buddhist texts, <em>The Diamond Sutra</em> (newly translated in these pages by Stephen Mitchell) to reveal the nature of the mind and to liberate us from painful thoughts, using her revolutionary system of self-inquiry called “The Work.” Byron Katie doesn’t merely describe the awakened mind; she empowers us to see it and feel it in action. At once startlingly fresh and powerfully enlightening, <em>A Mind at Home with Itself</em> offers us a transformative new perspective on life and death.</p><p><p><em>In the midst of a normal American life, Byron Katie became increasingly depressed and over a ten-year period sank further into despair and suicidal thoughts. Then one morning in 1986 she woke up in a state of absolute joy, filled with the realization of how her own suffering had ended. The freedom of that realization has never left her. Its direct result, The Work, has helped millions of people all over the world to question their stressful thoughts and set themselves free from suffering.</em></p><p></p>

<b>Gopi Kallayil, author of The Internet to the Inner-net and one of Google's best and brightest, uses stories from his high-tech work life and his personal life to explore what it means to be truly happy--and what makes us truly human.</b><br /><br />Happiness is a multimillion-dollar industry, catering to our deep desire to live a joyful life and to a belief that, as human beings, we deserve to be happy. Gopi Kallayil believes in reversing that equation. He holds that what we truly deserve is to be human, and that the key to happiness lies in being 100 percent who we are, reveling in our authentic selves, even if--maybe especially if--that means falling on our faces. Which Gopi has done. Many times. But he's also had spectacular success.<br /><br />This book explores the qualities that make us human and have helped to make Gopi successful and happy in both his personal life and his professional career. Told with Gopi's candor and humor, his deep compassion and his love of the absurd, The Happy Human spans the period from his first job as a software programmer in South China to his current position as an executive at Google in Silicon Valley. Each chapter captures an event in Gopi's life where he dug deep and found the means to express himself from a place of radical confidence: Singing live at Burning Man, even though he sings off-key and was terrified. Participating in a triathlon, with an open-water swim, when he had only swum in a pool. (Lifeguards pulled him into their boat to save him.) Speaking at Toastmasters International and being willing to be awful--which he admittedly was--before finally, years later, becoming one of their top speakers. He also weaves in accounts of others who have dreamed big and acted on their dreams. Gopi's stories and practices help us find happiness by embracing not only our own selves but the entire human experience, inspiring us to expect miracles daily, to use every fall as a chance to bounce, to go for what we want on every front, to live our lives full-out.

<p><strong>This ebook includes the full text of the book PLUS exclusive photos, insider stories, and practical inspiration from Candace—only found in the ebook!</strong></p><p>The world knows Candace Payne as “Chewbacca Mom,” the wife and mother of two from Dallas who captured the hearts of nearly 200 million people around the world with nothing but a toy Chewbacca mask, a smart phone, and infectious laughter.</p><p>Candace’s viral moment of simple joy became Facebook Live’s top video. But what the video doesn’t show is Candace’s storied journey of daunting obstacles on the way to the joy-filled life—extreme poverty, past trauma, and struggles with self-worth.</p><p><em>Laugh It Up!</em> tells the rest of the story behind the woman in the mask. Like most of us, Candace has often felt overlooked, undervalued, and insignificant. But she has also discovered the secrets to unshakable joy that no circumstance can take away, and <em>Laugh It Up!</em> will help you discover and experience the same.</p><p>Join Candace to discover the gift God has given us all to experience life to the fullest. All you need to do is answer “yes” when joy, whom Candace personifies as a friend, calls you to come and play.</p><ul><li>Do you feel tempted to give up on your dreams? Joy stays the course.</li><li>Do your knees knock when thinking about the future? Joy hopes for what can be.</li><li>Do you feel unseen and unnoticed? Joy is content whether backstage or center stage.</li><li>Do you feel crushed under the weight of regret? Joy loves you enough to weep with you, but also enough to help you move on.</li></ul><p>When life punches you in the gut, it can be difficult to muster a smile—much less a laugh. But with humor and power, wit and wisdom, Candace lights the way forward to a life that is free indeed.</p>
