Book Summary:

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to The Braille Institute, empowering visually impaired people to live fulfilling lives.

If you are like many people in our fast-paced, 21st century world, you are scrambling just to complete your daily “to-do” list: Pack lunches, kids to school, business lunch meeting, marketing presentation, make dinner, do the dishes, kids to bed…the list never ends! You may feel like there is no time to focus your attention on trying to improve your situation, and besides, who would listen to you if you tried?

Ready, Aim, Captivate! brings together experts, entrepreneurs, and authorities on how to take your individual message and use it to reach out to others, change lives, and captivate hearts. These professionals have started successful companies, written best-selling books, and championed multimillion dollar events, but still—at their core—they are just like you. They were once someone in a bookstore reading the introduction to a book they hoped would teach them how to get where they wanted to go. They had to learn—some of them, the hard way—how to balance success at work while maintaining happiness at home. You are not alone.

Each of us has a message to share with the world. Some people were born with obvious gifts such as an ability to sing, dance, play an instrument or professional sport, or lead businesses, schools, and churches to growth and success. Others have known since they were children that they wanted to be a firefighter, a cook, a teacher, or a nurse. You may be thinking, But what about me? I’m just a regular person with a passion for something, but I have no idea how to put it to work to help anyone.

Sit down and be inspired by this collection of interviews. Listen to each contributor as they speak of their stories of hardship and frustration, and how they came to claiming a life that abounds in purpose and passion—a life that lets them share their incredible message with the world. Allow them to remind you that wherever you are right now is the perfect place to start moving toward the goal of a fulfilled life so that others can begin to be changed by your unique message.

Book Summary:

Everyone has been inspired and most people strive to inspire others in their lifetime. Whether you aim to make a difference in your career, you volunteer in a local charitable organization or church, or even if you simply work tirelessly to leave behind a positive impression upon friends and family; we all aspire to inspire.

Think about someone or something that has motivated you to soar beyond where you thought you could go. Did a relative or teacher make a lasting impact that molded you into the person you are today? Did you have to wade through a time of deep struggling in order to come out victorious? Everyone has had that ‘ah-ha’ moment in their life when everything changes.

Digital Media News Update for 06/18/13: Writer Apps

Many consider the iPad to be a content-consumption device, with little to no possibility of creating something with the large screen and limited hardware capabilities. I’d like to say that, with all fairness, those people are out of their minds… [read more]

Book Review: Good Grief, What a Wonderful Life

Book Details:

File Size: 4797 KB

Book Summary:

This little book can change the way you think and what you feel about grief and loss. A portion of the proceeds supports animal welfare organizations worldwide.

People do Stress Relief and Grief Therapy very differently, so as a coach, it can be dealt with in many ways. One of the reasons I started to think about Good Grief Stress Relief is when I studied the body as a Physical Fitness instructor. When we are stressed the body begins to build up cortical steroids which can create lots of ongoing problems for the person. Imagine then, when a large section of a country is plummeted into a stress or grief situation by a catastrophic event? We have seen it many times in the last few years. We have seen earthquakes displace 10 million people in China. We saw Japan almost wipe out their east coast with a tsunami. We saw hundreds die in New Orleans, USA. Victorian fires here in Australia, catastrophic events in Haiti, Samoa, Iran, Afghanistan, Africa, and New Zealand. How does a whole country cope??? How do you cope?
