'Our thoughts are a magic part of us, and they carry us to places that have no boundaries, and no limitations' In this bestselling thought-provoking book, Dr. Wayne Dyer stretches beyond self-help to self-realisation. To do so, he embarks on a journey to activate our minds and shows us how to transform our lives by using our thoughts constructively: in other words, how to focus on a belief and see it. Using anecdotes and examples, writing with wit and compassion, and drawing on his own amazing life story, Dr. Dyer has, once again, written an inspirational self-help book that explores how to achieve personal transformation through the visualisation of thought - and teaches us that believing is seeing.
Based on a reading of more than three hundred self-help books, Sandra K. Dolby examines this remarkably popular genre to define "self-help" in a way that's compelling to academics and lay readers alike. Self-Help Books also offers an interpretation of why these books are so popular, arguing that they continue the well-established American penchant for self-education, they articulate problems of daily life and their supposed solutions, and that they present their content in a form and style that is accessible rather than arcane. Using tools associated with folklore studies, Dolby then examines how the genre makes use of stories, aphorisms, and a worldview that is at once traditional and contemporary. The overarching premise of the study is that self-help books, much like fairy tales, take traditional materials, especially stories and ideas, and recast them into extended essays that people happily read, think about, try to apply, and then set aside when a new embodiment of the genre comes along.

Originally written in 1993 this book has been the authors dream from its inception to the fi rst printing in Tehran, Iran in 2004. The book had to be put on hold for whatever reasons and the by perfect coincidences it got to the printing tables and now here in USA it has been put forth as a written word for you, the reader. The formula given to me by my father back in Summer of 1989 is so simple that I even were amazed at its simplicity. Now it is in your hands. I ask you to read between the lines and let my message to you become a tool to serve you. It is with this hope that this book is written and my very best to you. I love you. --------------- From experiences obtained in my life, I travelled across the US to fi nd the meaning of my life and how I am to live my life according to Gods and human laws. I formulated my thoughts in the form of this book as a mean of service to my readers at large. I suff erred for many years not being focused with my life and after receiving the message from my father, I had to live it in order to fulfi ll its promise. I am living in US now and am working very hard to get situated with my responsibilities as a servant, a husbad, a father, a son and a brother.
A psychopathic killer is on the loose. Detectives Lucia and Mike fi nd themselves in a bind. They must decipher the criminals outpouring of riddles, puzzles, paradoxes, and words fused with words. It reminds them of a Lewis Carroll novel. In fact, Alices looking glass often comes to mind. It is as if the psychopath existed in an illogical, irrational and inconsistent world of his own making. This killer is obviously brilliant. He knows forensics and the media inside out. Who is he? How can Lucia and Mike come to terms with his idiosyncrasies and bring him to justice?

Companies, communities, and individuals fall for many reasons, but one of the most common—and easily avoidable—is the failure to reinvent. When people and organizations rest on prior successes rather than driving purposeful transformation, they discover too late that they have lost their market position altogether to competitors and external forces. The most successful companies, brands, and individuals make reinvention a regular part of their business strategies. Transformation demands an ongoing process of discovery and imagination, and The Road to Reinvention lays out a systematic approach for continually challenging and reinventing yourself and your business. Venture capitalist and serial entrepreneur Josh Linkner identifies six elements in any business that are ripe for reinvention and shares examples, methods, and step-by-step techniques for creating deliberate, productive disruption. Throughout The Road to Reinvention, Linkner also explores the history—the great rise, unprecedented fall, and now rebirth—of his beloved hometown, Detroit. First rising to greatness as the result of breathtaking innovation, Detroit had generations of booming growth before succumbing to apathy, atrophy, and finally bankruptcy. Now, the city is rising from the ashes and driving sustainable success through an intense focus on reinvention. Linkner brings an insider's view of this incredible story of grit, determination, and creativity, sharing his perspective on Detroit's successes and setbacks as a profound example of large-scale organizational and personal transformation. Change is inevitable. You need to decide: Will you drive that change, or be driven away by it? Will you disrupt or be disrupted? By choosing to deliberately reimagine your own status quo, you can secure a strong future for both your company and your career.
