But it is also about challenge – and getting out in the stretch zone more regularly.This book will help you engage with the blocks that hold you back from promoting yourself confidently – and explains the steps you can take to overcome them.It gives clear examples of how this can be done – with insights into what the blocks actually are, how to take responsibility for them, and how to stop blaming others for your own lack of progress. Every reader, I’m sure, will find something in the content that they will relate strongly to in respect of the obstacles and challenges in their own life.“What matters most in life is to be yourself, not what other people think you should be.”What’s in the book?• Clear, thoughtful advice – based on experience• Practical exercises & things to put into practice• Strategies for raising your profile – with quiet determination• Simple ‘hacks’ to deal with scary situationsWho is this book for? It’s aimed at people who want to find their place in the world, boost their confidence, know their gift/contribution, get a clear sense of direction, overcome blocks and barriers (real or imagined) show up and connect.For example: Designers, artists and makers, change-makers, coaches, socially conscious entrepreneurs, ethical business owners, therapists/alternative medicine practitioners.A personal message from Pete Mosley:I’ve always been a shy person. To get to the point of talking to large live audiences, writing for a national magazine, and blogging and writing online for nationally and internationally significant organisations took a huge effort – not only in overcoming self-limiting beliefs, but also in overcoming the well-meaning critical questioning of others – parents, siblings, peers and colleagues.The content of my books, talks and workshops and courses are based on my 30 years of working face to face with people – mostly knowledge accumulated from many conversations and problem-solving sessions with a wide range of self-employed people. This new book engages with timeless concerns, questions and themes – not fashionable marketing or self-help trends – above all it’s based on real conversations with people like you.The book will be on sale at the end of January 2015.

Athletes must be able to make split-second decisions under the pressures of competition, but often this vital learning is left to chance. With Perception, Cognition, and Decision Training: The Quiet Eye in Action, readers gain access to the research foundations behind an innovative decision-training system that has been used successfully for years in training athletes. Certain to become the definitive guide to decision making in sport, this text presents three innovations solidly based in research. The first is the vision-in-action method of recording what athletes actually see when they perform. The second is the quiet eye phenomenon that has attracted considerable media attention. The third innovation is decision training to identify not only how athletes make performance decisions but also how to facilitate visual perception and action to enhance performance. Author Joan Vickers—who discovered the quiet eye and developed the vision-in-action method—takes the next step by integrating all three innovations into a system for helping athletes improve. Together, these advances provide scientific evidence of the effectiveness of perception–action coupling in athletes' training. Perception, Cognition, and Decision Training: The Quiet Eye in Action is applied to a variety of sports and settings through a three-step decision-training model and seven ready-to-use tools for encouraging athletes to become part of the decision-training process. These tools are research-based concepts that coaches can choose from in order to help train athletes on a specific decision-making task in a simulated competition context. The book also uses these features:-Informative chapter-opening items provide an overview of the content, and special sections recap the previous chapter and introduce the next.-Screen captures from the latest in eye-tracking technology show what athletes actually see, where their eyes are directed, and how their gaze differs depending on their ability level.-Boldfaced key terms and a thorough glossary make it easy to identify key concepts in this emerging field of study.-Chapter-closing in-action sections provide an opportunity to visit Web sites, read articles, or complete tasks to discover how the concepts learned can be applied.-Case studies show how coaches and athletes in various sports have successfully used gaze control and decision training.The book is organized into three parts. Part I introduces the visuomotor system and two processing systems that work together to permit the great range of actions humans perform. Eye-tracking technology is reviewed along with new possibilities for measuring what athletes really see when they perform. In part II, the author presents a unique framework of gaze control. Readers will learn how skilled athletes control the gaze to gain optimal control of their attention and decision making. The quiet eye phenomenon, measurement, and training are also addressed. Part III describes the three-step decision-training model and its application to how coaches design practice, provide feedback, use questions, and give instructions. Case studies show how others are using the model and the seven decision-training tools. Decision training is designed to improve athletes' attention, anticipation, concentration, memory, and problem-solving skills, leading to extraordinary long-term gains. The cutting-edge research presented in this book allows readers to appreciate the growing importance of cognition, vision, and decision making; it also shows them how to apply this knowledge to sport training and coaching.
A VERY classic from Eric Carle, creator of The Very Hungry Caterpillar!One day a tiny cricket is born and meets a big cricket who chirps his welcome. The tiny cricket tries to respond, but there is no sound. The quiet cricket then makes his way into the world, meeting one insect after another, each of whom greets the little cricket with a cheery hello--the hum of a bee, the whirr of a dragonfly, the whisper of a praying mantis. The cricket rubs his wings together each time, but nothing happens, not a sound. Until the day he meets another cricket, a female, and something different happens . . .As children turn the page on this wonderful moment, they are greeted with a surprise--an actual chirp!Full of Eric Carle's gorgeous and lush collage art, a gentle rhythmic text for read-alouds, and a wonder-inducing surprise at the end, The Very Quiet Cricket remains an all-time favorite from one of the true masters of picture-book making.Batteries are replaceable. Please use two 1.5 volt L1131 button cell batteries.Praise for The Very Quiet Cricket:"Typical of Carle's style, the language is simple, with rhythm, repetition, and alliteration to delight young listeners. Painted collage illustrations are lavish and expressive."--School Library Journal "The text is skillfully shaped; the illustrations convey energy and immediacy."--Horn Book"As usual, Carle's art is lovely and his story is simple and satisfying."--Publishers Weekly"Carle's signature style ensures that this is a visual standout, and storywise it's appealing, too....The spare text is structured by repetitive phrasing that will lend itself to read-aloud responses."--Booklist

A great sorrow has come into the heart of God. Let it be told only in hushed voice—one of His worlds is a prodigal! Hush your voice yet more—ours is that prodigal world. Let your voice soften down still more—we have consented to the prodigal part of the story. But, in softest tones yet, He has won some of us back with His strong tender love. And now let the voice ring out with great gladness—we won ones may be the pathway back to God for the others. That is His earnest desire. That should be our dominant ambition. For that purpose He has endowed us with peculiar power.
