The greatest adventure in our lives is to learn the art of being happy. Happiness, like worry, is a habit, just as tying a shoelace or brushing our teeth becomes a habit. And, as you'll learn in this audiobook, it takes only five minutes a day to install happiness as a lifelong habit. Once the happiness habit is developed, it becomes a permanent part of your personality - requiring little or no effort on your part.
You'll learn that tensions are at a minimum when we are happy. We cannot eliminate tensions altogether, yet wherever possible we must stand up to these tensions and stresses to develop our mental and spiritual muscles, just as in a game an athlete shows his abilities best under stress. In this program, you'll learn that we have a built-in success mechanism and a built-in failure mechanism, and it is up to us to utilize the success mechanism in order to maximize happiness. And you'll learn that to be happy, we must learn that we have another image besides the external one we see in the mirror. We have an inner self-image that is the result of what we are and what we think we are...and this image we create depending on what aspects of the success or failure mechanisms we use. This in turn gives clothing to our personality.
Getting the happiness habit means that we can use our imagination properly. Getting the happiness habit means that we become our own plastic surgeon and, without the use of a magic scalpel, perform magic on our self-image, constructing a self-image we can live with by removing the scar on it through understanding - an inner scar we put there with our own mental and spiritual bands because we didn't understand.
In Five Minutes to Happiness, you'll spend five minutes each day to reinforce these key ideas and to pave the way to a joyous life adventure.
A Bigger Vocabulary = A Brighter Future
Words. They're the foundation of nearly everything of value in our world. They have the power to create and the power to destroy. The power to inspire and to terrify. The power to enlighten and also to obscure. And, more specifically for you, they have the power to attract wealth and success and guarantee your brighter future. This is not hyperbole - it is based on rock-solid research.
Studies show that those people with large vocabularies are smarter, wealthier, and happier than the average person - and substantially so. And here's the best news of all: a large vocabulary is not tied to your social status, your genes, or even your education level. It is a skill that can be learned - and it takes only 30 days.
In this cutting-edge program, 30 Days to a More Powerful Vocabulary, personal development expert and English enthusiast Dan Strutzel will instruct, enlighten, and inspire you with a concentrated 30-day program that will teach you over 500 words. But, more than teaching you these words, the uniquely designed program will ensure that these words become a habit-knit part of your life - and with minimal effort on your part.
Best of all, research shows that learning new words has an exponential effect on the size of your vocabulary - since learning one word naturally produces an association between two to three more words. In short, after reading and applying the system in this 30-day program, you will not only have a bigger vocabulary - you will have a brighter future!
Here's just a sampling of what you'll learn:
In this era of financial uncertainty in the worldwide economy, it is more important than ever to make sure that your own personal economy is secure. In The Financial Security Bible, you'll learn how to build a financial foundation for yourself and your family that no financial hurricane can break through. This book is called a bible, because like the Bible, many of the lessons it contains are embedded in stories and parables that relate to real life situations. It describes the range of lifestyles that encompass all people, from the lifestyle of success to the lifestyle of failure and shows you how to define where you fall within the range. You'll learn common sense ways to improve your financial position, no matter where you fall on the scale. This is not a high powered financial text you will need an MBA to understand, but rather a down to earth guide every person can use to improve their finances and/or become financially independent. Mike will show you how he was able to distill powerful life lessons from seemingly insignificant incidents throughout his life and teach you how to do the same with your life experiences. You will want to read it over and over, because each time, you will gain more knowledge and ideas that will help you build wealth and be happy. If you desire a better future, this is a resource you can't afford to be without.
