Getting Unstuck: How Dead Ends Become New Paths


We all experience psychological impasse. This feeling of uncertainty about your next moves in life might come at predictable moments: the loss of a job, the end of a romance, an empty nest as your child heads for college, or the death of someone who has long helped you feel recognized, loved, and appreciated. It might also come at unpredictable moments: when the career of a lifetime somehow loses its juice, when you ache for intimacy but can't seem to find the right partner, when you find yourself longing to renew a sense of life's adventure.


Predictable or not, psychological impasse brings with it the sense of being stuck or paralyzed. At the office, you feel stale or unchallenged. In your personal life, you feel agitated, deflated, or downright bored. You know that something must change - and you're desperate to contribute at work, find a reinvigorated role in your family, and dive back into the current of your own life.


Though uncomfortable, impasse is necessary. It's the only place from which you can define a new vision for your life. Now business psychologist and researcher Timothy Butler leverages more than 20 years of research to offer strategies for finding your way from impasse to renewed meaning - at work, at home, with colleagues, and with family. He shows you how to:



Recognize the state of psychological impasse and use it as a springboard to real change


Participate in exercises that activate your new life vision


Identify the activities, rewards, types of people, work cultures, and communities that will most likely satisfy you


Make choices that transform your new vision into reality


Drawing on a wealth of stories about individuals who have successfully transitioned out of impasses, Getting Unstuck provides a practical, authoritative road map for moving past your immediate impasse and defining a meaningful path forward.

The Seven Lost Secrets of Success


During the 1920s and 1930s, Bruce Barton was a household name in America - a hugely successful advertising man who revolutionized his industry by treating customers like people, not like sheep to be fleeced. He created some of the most memorable and long-lived advertising slogans and campaigns in history. He understood how to succeed in business and advertising, and he set down his principles for success in best-selling books that put his name on everyone's lips.


Those in advertising know Barton's name, but the rest of the country has long forgotten both the man and his wisdom. After discovering Barton's secrets of success for himself, Joe Vitale thought that we could all benefit from Barton's legacy. In 1992 Vitale published The Seven Lost Secrets of Success and, 19 printings later, the book continues to guide thousands of people every year to a more successful and rewarding life based on the wisdom of the legendary Bruce Barton.


Part advertising how-to and part inspirational success guide, The Seven Lost Secrets of Success is a practical resource packed with wisdom you can use to reach your biggest career and personal goals. Now completely updated to include new and rare material on Barton, including a 1925 sales letter that drew an astounding 100-percent response, this audiobook is the ultimate tool for promoting yourself or your business in foolproof ways that work in any decade.


But more than just the secrets of great and effective advertising, this is a motivational guide to succeeding in every aspect of life. If you work in advertising or marketing, or if you run your own small business, these seven secrets will change the way you work and live. Apply them to your business and the profits will roll in; apply them to your life and happiness will follow. The Seven Lost Secrets of Success presents the straightforward and proven principles that brought Barton fame and fortune. They'll do the same for you.

Mobs, Messiahs, and Markets: Surviving the Public Spectacle in Finance and Politics


Collectively, people think and act in ways that are different from how they think and act as individuals. Understanding these differences, says William (Bill) Bonner, a longtime maverick observer of the financial world and the vagaries of the investing public, is vital to preserving your wealth and personal dignity. From the witch hunts of the early modern world to the war on terror, from the dot-com mania to the real-estate bubble, people have always been caught up in frauds, conceits, and wild guesses - often with devastating results. Now Bonner and co-author Lila Rajiva show groupthink at work in an improbable array of instances throughout history and reveal why swimming against the current pays. They explain why people so often abandon good sense and good behavior to "follow the crowd" and show you how to avoid getting caught up in the public spectacles around you.


If an investor merely recognizes the way mob sentiment works, he is far ahead of others. Ordinary people turn billions of dollars worth of their hard-earned money over to brokers and fund managers daily, believing that these strangers will give them back even more. Why?


This audiobook demonstrates that investors are in fact caught between a rock and a soft place - between the private world they can understand and master and the misleading public spectacle of the markets. "The farther away you get from your investments, and the less you suffer the consequences if they go bad, the worse your performance will be," say Bonner and Rajiva. "That's why 'collective' investments like index-linked funds, mutual funds, hedge funds, insurance funds, and pension funds are usually so bad. The investors are too far from the facts, and the managers are too far from the consequences."

Transitions: Making Sense of Life's Changes

First published in 1980, Transitions was the first book to explore the underlying and universal pattern of transition. Recently named one of the 50 most important self-help books of all time, Transitions remains the essential guide for coping with the inevitable changes in life.


Transitions takes listeners step-by-step through the three perilous stages of any life passage, explaining how each stage can be understood and embraced. Offering an elegantly simple yet profoundly insightful roadmap for successfully navigating change and moving into a hopeful future, the process is ever relevant and applicable today. Among the subjects covered:


Endings. Every transition begins with one. Too often we misunderstand them, confuse them with finality: "That's it, all over, finished!" Yet how we recognize endings is key to how we can begin anew.


The Neutral Zone. The second hurdle of transitions: a seemingly unproductive "time-out" when we feel disconnected from people and things in the past and emotionally unconnected to the present. Yet the neutral zone is really a time of reorientation. How can we make the most of it?


The New Beginning. In transitions, we come to beginnings only at the end, when we launch new activities. To make a successful new beginning requires more than simply persevering. It requires an understanding of external signs and inner signals that point the way to the future.

Defining Moments: When Managers Must Choose Between Right and Right

How do you lead the launch of a product you know will be extremely controversial?

What should you do if a single parent on your staff is falling behind in his or her work?

How should you respond if you are offered an opportunity at work solely because of your race or gender?

This is a book about work choices and life choices, and the critical points-or defining moments-at which the two become one. A refreshing antidote to traditional feel-good, inspirational business ethics, it examines the right-versus-right conflicts that every business manager faces and presents an unorthodox yet practical way for you to think about and resolve them.

When making hard professional decisions, managers often use personal values as a touchstone. Badaracco asserts, however, that resolving such dilemmas is not as simple as the "do the right thing" school of ethics would have you believe. Defining Moments reveals an alternative approach that will help you tackle the more complex and troubling question of what to do when doing the right thing requires doing something else wrong, or leaving another right thing undone.

Drawing on philosophy, literature, and three case studies that reveal the increasing complexity today's managers face as their careers advance, Defining Moments provides tangible examples, actionable steps, and a flexible framework that you can use to make the choices that will shape not only your career, but your character.

Compelling, absent of ethical jargon, this book gets to the core of what makes being a manager so difficult. For new and seasoned managers alike, Defining Moments explores what it means-and whether it's even possible-to be a successful manager and a thoughtful, responsible human being.

"So much of making sound decisions comes from asking smart questions. Defining Moments asks all the right questions in a way that will help any manager who wants to reach judgments that are morally sensitive and professionally sensible." 
   - George Stephanopoulos, Visiting Professor at Columbia University, political analyst for ABC, and former adviser to the Clinton Administration

"Defining Moments outlines a refreshingly realistic approach to ethics in management. Badaracco shows how managers can choose, without sacrificing their values, between multiple acceptable solutions--not the one right answer that most ethicists claim exists. It is a book to be put into practice, not just read and set aside." 
   - Andrall Pearson, Chairman & CEO, Pepsico Food Division

"Critical decisions between shades of right are inescapable in our professional and personal lives and do create defining moments' for each of us. Badracco brings a clarity to the decision process that I did not think possible." 
   - Gail Long, Senior Vice President, Group Executive, Large Corporate, BankBoston

"Finally, here's a book that helps us prioritize our personal and institutional loyalties and responsibilities in decision making, wend our way through real-life moral mazes, and develop our character in the process. A crystal-clear, practical writer, Badaracco provides a new and unorthodox approach to issues of great complexity. He offers pragmatic assistance to real people weighing conflicting duties, ends, and virtues of business life." 
   - William McLennan, University Chaplain, Tufts University

The main source of emotional stress, anxiety, depression and sorrow is thinking too much about problems. Be it about relationships, work, health, family or money problems, these painful emotions can wreak havoc on your life. Every one of the 60,000 thoughts we have every day has a physical reaction in our bodies. Since most of those thoughts, in some form or another, are fear based, they cause a great deal of stress which may turn into more destructive emotions such as Anxiety and Anger. These emotions slowly eat us up from the inside and may even lead to serious health issues in time.

The problem is that most of us have not been taught how to manage our thoughts and feelings. However, the great news is that we do not have to be slaves to these painful emotions! We CAN control what we think and therefore how we feel by using simple mental exercises to direct our focus.

The program is narrated by Mike Angulo, the author of the "Eflexx Method for Stress Relief". His soothing narrating voice is complemented by beautiful relaxing music composed specifically for this audio program by Wendy Hawkinson.

How it works:

Uncertainty about the future is one of the main sources of stress. This is mostly due to the fact that people do not actually know what they really want in their lives.

According to the "Eflexx Method for Stress Relief", stress is reduced considerably once you know what you want and, especially, why you want it. The main reason why you want things is to feel a certain way. For example, you want money because of the feelings of security that that may bring you. Think about it, does it make you happy to hold a peace of paper in your hand with a dollar sign on it? Most probably you're interested in what you can get with it and how you will feel once you get it. On the other hand, you want a relationship for the feelings of connection that it will provide.

With this in mind, the Eflexx Empowerment Meditation focuses of guiding you through the feelings that you want to experience in every area of your life.

It was designed to be done once a day, preferably in the morning. This will help you focus on the future you really want and not just the problems you're facing now. Within a couple of days, your mind will literally "hone in" on what you want and will start noticing things that can help you achieve the future of your dreams!

About the Chakras and the Eflexx Sound Meditation:

The Eflexx Sound Meditation uses sounds to balance the CHAKRAS. These energy centers go from the base of the spine, all the way up to the top of the head. Each of those chakra points in the body is activated by a certain sound; more specifically, a certain vibration, which activates it or lets it move appropriately.

This is a very simple mediation where you will make specific sounds for each one of those chakras, in order to recharge the batteries of your energy body, and feel peaceful and energized simultaneously.

Location of the Chakras and their respective sounds:

  • The Crown Chakra is located at the top of our heads and is activated by the sound of OHM.
  • The Third Eye Chakra is located right between our eyebrows and is activated by the sound SHAHM.
  • The Throat Chakra is activated by the sound HAHM.
  • The Heart Chakra is activated by the sound YAHM.
  • The Solar Plexus Chakra is in our abdomen, and is activated by the sound RAHM.
  • The Sacral Chakra is in the area of the reproductive organs, and reacts to the sound of VAHM.
  • The Base Chakra is located all the way at the bottom of our spine and it is activated with the sound LAHM.

The Way to Wealth

The first American book on personal finance, The Way to Wealth by Benjamin Franklin is still the best and wisest money book ever written. Originally published in 1758 as the preface to Poor Richard' s Almanack, this little gem has been through innumerable printings and sold millions of copies to those in search of smart but entertaining advice about hard work, earning and saving money and debt. As the 21st Century charges along and the current economic climate continues to send out mixed messages, Franklin' s simple but wise commentary on the value of industry and frugality resonates as much for us today as it did for listeners nearly 350 years ago. Here is a sample: 

  • Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.
  • If you would be wealthy, think of saving, as well as of getting.
  • If you would have your business done, go; if not, send.
  • Think what you do when you run into debt; you give to another power over your liberty.
  • Creditors have better memories than debtors.

Although older than the United States itself, The Way to Wealth is still very popular. It is handed out by major companies and financial institutions to friends, clients, and customers and was the January, 2004 selection of The Washington Post' s the Color of Money Book Club.

As Michelle Singletary, director of the Club wrote in a column about The book, "At just 30 pages, this pocket- size book takes less than an hour to read but will give you a lifetime of financial wisdom- that is if you're wise enough to follow the advice." 

Book Yourself Solid : The Fastest, Easiest, and Most Reliable System for Getting More Clients

A one-of-a-kind, step-by-step guide to building a successful service business from the ground up.

According to the Small Business Administration, ninety percent of service businesses will fail within the first five years. They fail not because they don't offer great services and products, but because the owners are uncomfortable with traditional marketing and sales. The result is a frustrated, isolated, and overwhelmed business owner who does not know there is an entirely different, highly successful approach to marketing and sales available.

Now Michael Port shares his original proven system for getting more clients. Ninety-three percent of business owners who have used his seven core self-promotion strategies have experienced a thirty-four percent increase in their total number of clients and a forty-two percent increase in sales in the first year alone.

This practical, wildly inspirational guide will lift you up and give you the confidence you need to comfortably and authentically market yourself and your services, tap into an endless supply of quality referrals, and watch your business grow.

"…Lead generation and conversion is the heart of any marketing enterprise, and Michael Port's ingenious and practical system is among the best I've seen." 
   - Michael E. Gerber, founder and Chairman, E-Myth Worldwide, author of The E-Myth Revisited

"…This is not a conceptual, theoretical look at how to succeed as a service professional. Instead, it's just what you need if you're stuck and you'd rather invest in your future (by doing the right kind of work) than complain about it later." 
   - Seth Godin, author of All Marketers Are Liars and Permission Marketing

"…Michael Port is the guy to call if you're tired of thinking small." 
   -Daniel H. Pink, author of A Whole New Mind and Free Agent Nation

Color of Love

Nine years after Brown v. Board of Education in 1954, and only a year before the Civil Rights Act of 1964, a judge in the Forsyth County Courthouse of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, wrenched twelve-year-old Gene Cheek from the security of his mother's devotion. Here is a true story of love in a time afflicted by hatred, ignorance, and racism. At its core, this is a frank account of a love affair between a white woman and a black man that took mother from son and split a family forever.

In the early 1960s, the city of Winston-Salem struggled under the strict edicts of segregation, setting the tone of division that would plague Gene Cheek's life. Raised by his alcoholic father and his earnestly loving mother, Gene learned about the power of hatred and the strength of love. Yet when his mother falls in love with Cornelius Tucker, an African-American man, and becomes pregnant with his child, their union is seen as morally and lawfully unfit, forcing the family to choose between the infant and Gene.
