"Must professional accomplishments come at the expense of having a full life? Not according to Wharton professor and leadership and work-life expert Stewart D. Friedman. In his new book, Friedman identifies critical skills for leading an authentic and balanced life, and illustrates them through the compelling stories of six remarkable high-profile people. He also shows how to develop and apply each skill through a series of exercises anyone can use. Each leader showcased in the book-Bruce Springsteen, Michelle Obama, Sheryl Sandberg, Tom Tierney, Eric Greitens, and Julie Foudy-exemplifies a specific set of skills for achieving greater harmony between work and life. Friedman identifies these discrete skills-for being real, being whole, and being innovative-that reduce conflict. Then, based on in depth interviews and research, he paints a dramatic picture of the creative ways these six very different leaders pursue authenticity and harmony every day. Friedman also includes exercises for practicing each skill, along with actionable ideas curated from research in organizational psychology and related fields, for applying them. This book will inspire and reinforce the changes people want to make to lead more balanced lives and to become better leaders"--

From the upper echelons of the scientific establishment comes a completely new definition of reality and the human being. The most advanced physics in the world suggests that accumulated knowledge in all fields is based on a false premise. If so, all curriculum from grade school to university will need to be entirely overhauled. The end result will be a complete and total reversal of focus that will bring about a new human with entirely new and radical ways of achieving goals and solving problems. But we cannot do that while the pestilence prevents us and civilization from entering the promised land. Learn how to become powerful and unstoppable by having the right knowledge. We unknowingly wield immense power. We must recognize the fantastic power we possess and learn to use it constructively. Here and now we have the power to work magic of such proportions we have never fathomed. Yet unseized, such power waits for us to claim it. It is of no use until we awaken to it. It is all here, in the solution.
There is a power lying hidden in man, by the use of which he can rise to higher and better things. There is in man a greater Self, that transcends the finite self of the sense-man, even as the mountain towers above the plain. The object of this little book is to help men and women to bring their inward powers of mind and spirit into expression, wisely and in harmony with universal law; to build up character, and to find within themselves that wondrous Self, which is their real self, and which, when found, reveals to them that they are literally and truly sons of God and daughters of the Most High. There is no way whereby the discipline of life can be avoided. There is no means by which fate can be "tricked," nor cunning device by which the great cosmic plan can be evaded. Each life must meet its own troubles and difficulties: each soul must pass through its deep waters, every heart must encounter sorrow and grief. But none need be overwhelmed in the great conflicts of life, for one who has learned the great secret of his identity with the Universal life and Power, dwells in an impregnable city, built upon and into the Rock of Truth, against which the storms of life beat in vain. While this little work does not offer any vain promises of an easy life—for, if this were possible, it would be the greatest of all disasters—but rather endeavours to show how to become so strong that life looks almost easy by comparison (the life or fate does not change or become easier, but the individual alters and becomes stronger), yet, it does show the reader how to avoid making his life more difficult than it need be. Most people's lives would be less filled with trouble and suffering if they took life in the right spirit and acted in harmony with Universal Law. It is hoped that this little book may help many to come into harmony with life's law and purpose and thus avoid much needless suffering: to find the Greater Self within, which discovery brings with it a realization of absolute security: to bring into expression and wisely use their inner spiritual and mental forces and thus enter a life of overcoming and almost boundless power.

So often we find ourselves blocked in our lives, unhappy but at the same time anxious and fearful about making real and lasting change and uncertain what direction to take. In this book psychologist Dr Freddy Jackson Brown reveals that many of our difficulties are self-imposed. By following the principles of a breakthrough approach, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, he shows that we can all live a happier, less fearful and more purposeful life. The book explains the key principles of ACT - accepting rather than avoiding difficult experiences, discovering how to defuse harmful thoughts (often through changes in the way we use language), focusing on the values that give your life meaning and committing to changes in behaviour. The ground-breaking aspect of this therapy is its recognition that lasting happiness can only be found when we identify the core values that are most profoundly important to us. The book begins by explaining that values give meaning and dignity to the difficult times we may face and provide a guiding star by which we can steer a path through life, ensuring that our choices are consistent with who we truly are. The book goes on to explain how we can determine our values and understand them, and then put our values into action in practical ways throughout every aspect of our life. Dr Jackson Brown shows us how to set long-term goals based on our values and shows how exploring the issues that seem to most distress us can provide clues as to what truly matters in our lives. Rich with case studies and practical exercises, this inspiring book will lead you to the life you truly wish to lead.
