<b><b>The #1聽<i>New York Times</i>聽bestseller.聽</b>1 million copies sold!<br /><br /><b>Don鈥檛 miss the hourlong Netflix special聽<i>Bren茅 Brown: The Call to Courage</i>!</b><br /><br />From thought leader Bren茅 Brown, a transformative new vision for the way we lead, love, work, parent, and educate that teaches us the power of vulnerability.</b><br />聽<br /> <i>鈥淚t is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while <b>daring greatly.</b>鈥濃€?lt;/i>Theodore Roosevelt<br /><br />Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable or to dare greatly. Based on twelve years of pioneering research, Bren茅 Brown聽PhD, LMSW, dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and argues that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.<br /><br />Brown explains how vulnerability is both the core of difficult emotions like fear, grief, and disappointment, <i>and</i> the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, empathy, innovation, and creativity. She writes: 鈥淲hen we shut ourselves off from vulnerability, we distance ourselves from the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives.鈥?lt;br /><br /> <i>Daring Greatly</i> is not about winning or losing. It鈥檚 about courage. In a world where 鈥渘ever enough鈥?dominates and feeling afraid has become second nature, vulnerability is subversive. Uncomfortable. It鈥檚 even a little dangerous at times. And, without question, putting ourselves out there means there鈥檚 a far greater risk of getting criticized or feeling hurt. But when we step back and examine our lives, we will find that nothing is as uncomfortable, dangerous, and hurtful as standing on the outside of our lives looking in and wondering what it would be like if we had the courage to step into the arena鈥攚hether it鈥檚 a new relationship, an important meeting, the creative process, or a difficult family conversation. <i>Daring Greatly</i> is a practice and a powerful new vision for letting ourselves be seen.

<b>Based on a Navy SEAL's inspiring graduation speech, this #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestseller of powerful life lessons "should be read by every leader in America" (<i>Wall Street Journal</i>).</b><i><br />If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed.</i><br /><br /><i></i>On May 17, 2014, Admiral William H. McRaven addressed the graduating class of the University of Texas at Austin on their Commencement day. Taking inspiration from the university's slogan, "What starts here changes the world," he shared the ten principles he learned during Navy Seal training that helped him overcome challenges not only in his training and long Naval career, but also throughout his life; and he explained how anyone can use these basic lessons to change themselves-and the world-for the better.<br /><br />Admiral McRaven's original speech went viral with over 10 million views. Building on the core tenets laid out in his speech, McRaven now recounts tales from his own life and from those of people he encountered during his military service who dealt with hardship and made tough decisions with determination, compassion, honor, and courage. Told with great humility and optimism, this timeless book provides simple wisdom, practical advice, and words of encouragement that will inspire readers to achieve <i>more</i>, even in life's darkest moments. <br /><strong>"Powerful." --<em>USA Today</em></strong><br /><br /><strong>"Full of captivating personal anecdotes from inside the national security vault." --<em>Washington Post</em></strong><br /><br /><strong><em>"</em>Superb, smart, and succinct." --<em>Forbes</em></strong>

What if charisma could be taught?<br /><br />For the first time, science and technology have taken charisma apart, figured it out and turned it into an applied science: In controlled laboratory experiments, researchers could raise or lower people's level of charisma as if they were turning a dial.<br /><br />What you'll find here is practical magic: unique knowledge, drawn from a variety of sciences, revealing what charisma really is and how it works. You'll get both the insights and the techniques you need to apply this knowledge. The world will become your lab, and every person you meet, a chance to experiment.<br /><br /><i>The Charisma Myth</i> is a mix of fun stories, sound science, and practical tools. Cabane takes a hard scientific approach to a heretofore mystical topic, covering what charisma actually is, how it is learned, what its side effects are, and how to handle them.<br /><p></p>

<i>For many of us, feelings of deficiency are right around the corner. It doesn鈥檛 take much--just hearing of someone else鈥檚 accomplishments, being criticized, getting into an argument, making a mistake at work--to make us feel that we are not okay. Beginning to understand how our lives have become ensnared in this trance of unworthiness is our first step toward reconnecting with who we really are and what it means to live fully. <br /> </i><b>鈥攆rom <i>Radical Acceptance</i></b><br /><br /> 鈥淏elieving that something is wrong with us is a deep and tenacious suffering,鈥?says Tara Brach at the start of this illuminating book. This suffering emerges in crippling self-judgments and conflicts in our relationships, in addictions and perfectionism, in loneliness and overwork鈥攁ll the forces that keep our lives constricted and unfulfilled. Radical Acceptance offers a path to freedom, including the day-to-day practical guidance developed over Dr. Brach鈥檚 twenty years of work with therapy clients and Buddhist students.<br /><br /> Writing with great warmth and clarity, Tara Brach brings her teachings alive through personal stories and case histories, fresh interpretations of Buddhist tales, and guided meditations. Step by step, she leads us to trust our innate goodness, showing how we can develop the balance of clear-sightedness and compassion that is the essence of<i> Radical Acceptance. Radical Acceptance</i> does not mean self-indulgence or passivity. Instead it empowers genuine change: healing fear and shame and helping to build loving, authentic relationships. When we stop being at war with ourselves, we are free to live fully every precious moment of our lives.

<p><strong>SALE: Only 99 cents for a limited time!</strong><br /></p><p><strong>Elastic habits are easier to form, more impactful, more fun, and more resilient than habits formed with any other strategy.</strong><br /></p><p>These flexible habits are just as easy to form as a mini habit, but with 3x the results (or more). To explain how and why this is possible, here's a hypothetical scenario involving my greatest fear in the world... bears.<br /></p><p>Imagine you鈥檙e trail running in the woods, trying to set a new personal best time. Out of the corner of your eye, you see a large brown object moving towards you with great speed. And now it鈥檚 upon you. You gaze up in horror at a roaring mother grizzly bear. What do you do?<br /></p><ol><li>Continue running (adrenaline boost!)</li><li>Tackle the bear</li><li>Play dead</li><li>Call out 鈥淛umanji鈥?lt;br /></li></ol><p>Go ahead and play dead. It gives you the best chance of surviving a grizzly attack. But if you treated this situation as we are taught to treat goals and habits, you wouldn鈥檛 have that option. You鈥檇 have just one option, because most goals and habits are unchanging. So here鈥檚 your one option.<br /></p><p>1. Continue running (certain death)<br /></p><p>You had a plan (trail running), but your environment changed (momma bear). Whenever that happens, you must <em>adapt</em> to the unexpected situation for the best result. In the case of a bear attack, it can save your life. In the case of behavior change, it can save your habits.聽<br /></p><p>This concept doesn鈥檛 only apply in a negative way, either. There will be times in which a situation is <em>more</em> favorable than anticipated, in which case, adapting to seize the opportunity is in your best interest. But if you follow any other habit book鈥檚 advice, they will tell you to do the same thing every day, to be inflexible.聽<br /></p><h3><strong>The Result of Static Habits</strong><br /></h3><p>If your static habit is small, you鈥檒l achieve remarkable consistency (mini habits). But on days in which you can do more, it will feel (and possibly be) <em>wrong</em> to aim for something that easy. Over time, this may frustrate you.<br /></p><p>If your static habit is large, you鈥檒l have occasional big wins, but whenever life sends you a figurative grizzly bear, you鈥檒l fail and your habit may die young.<br /></p><p>Small habits are the best choice if you choose to form a static habit, but here鈥檚 why you shouldn鈥檛.<br /></p><h3><strong>The Power of Elastic Habits</strong><br /></h3><p>No two days are the same. By making your habits elastic, you can adapt your aim to conquer every unique day of your life. You will still be surprised by the crazy happenings of life, no doubt, but you will no longer be <em>unprepared</em> for them.<br /></p><p>Elastic habits give you an answer for every situation. They destroy excuses naturally, by saying, 鈥淥kay. How about doing this instead?鈥?If normal habits are a hammer, elastic habits are your grandfather鈥檚 garage, a magical place with a tool for every need. It鈥檚 not a burden to have a hammer, a wrench, <em>and</em> a screwdriver鈥攜ou simply select the one you need for the job.<br /></p><p>In this book, you鈥檒l find a comprehensive framework of elasticity for habit building. Elastic materials are stronger than rigid, brittle materials because they can adapt to pressure. The same is true for habits. Any dread or sense of monotony you鈥檝e felt about forming habits will disappear, because this system is dynamic and exciting.<br /></p><p>Your elastic habits can survive threats and thrive in favorable circumstances. There鈥檚 no downside because they鈥檙e simply a smarter version of the habits we typically try to form. <br /></p><p><strong>Read <em>Elastic Habits</em>, and you鈥檒l soon discover the power and freedom of smarter, flexible habits that adapt to your day.</strong></p>
