Be the Hero : Three Powerful Ways to Overcome Challenges in Work and Life

Noah Blumenthal

BE THE HERO YOU WANT TO BE!

At times we all feel frustrated, stressed, or out of control. What if you could be at your best when your challenges are on the rise? Well, you can. Be the Hero introduces us to the way of the “Everyday Hero” and shows how to turn self-defeating thoughts and behaviour into heroic actions. The trick is in the stories we tell ourselves.

All day long, without even realizing it, we tell ourselves dozens of stories-about other people, our situations, and ourselves-stories that shape our emotions and behaviour. These stories are so powerful, they make us think and act like either a hero or a victim. Be the Hero shows you how to choose the stories that lead to personal and professional success.

In the tradition of best story tellers, Noah Blumenthal weaves a tale that is both captivating and profound. Be the Hero is destined to become a classic.

How To Bounce When Others Break : The Top 10 Rules of Resilient People

Dr. Steve W. Price

“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade,” said Dale Carnegie back in the 1930s, when the world was mired in the Great Depression.

Easier said than done.

The Great Depression broke a lot of people. Unemployment hit 25%. Fortunes were lost. Homes and businesses were foreclosed on. Dreams were dashed.

But the most resilient people survived.

Many even thrived.

Today, we’re in the toughest times since the Great Depression. And it’s likely to last for a decade, perhaps longer. The tough times ahead will test many of us. These days, resilience isn’t a nicety…it’s a necessity.

Resilience – the ability to bounce back from setbacks and adversity – has enabled ordinary people throughout history to turn tragedy into triumph.

The “Top 10 Rules of Resilient People” discussed in this book have helped countless people turn adversity into advantage. Whether your challenges are financial, emotional, or medical (or all three), read this book – and learn how you, too, can bounce…when others break.

Fuel : The Energy You Need To Succeed

Wes Beavis

A lack of energy keeps more people from success than an abundance of challenges. When it was decided to put man on the moon, rocket scientists did not turn around waiting for a break in the Earth’s gravitational force–they loaded up the rocket with enough fuel to burst right through it! You can do the same. Fill up on fuel so that you can push right through anything that holds you back. In FUEL, you will discover where to find the energy you need to succeed.

The Business of the 21st Century

Robert T. Kiyosaki

The Economy is not the Issue.
The Issue is You.

Are you angry at the corruption in the corporate world? At Wall Street and the big banks? At the government for doing too much of the wrong things and not enough of the right things?

Or are you angry at yourself for not taking control of your finances sooner?

Life is tough. The questions is, What are you going to do about it?
Moaning and groaning about the economy or blaming others won’t secure your financial future. If you want wealth, you need to create it. You need to take charge of your future by taking control of your income source – today!

You need your own business.

These may be economic hard times for the majority, but for many entrepreneurs, these are times teeming with economic potential. Not only is now the time to have your own business, but there has never been a better time than right now!
