Dyer, Wayne W.
Carlsbad, California : Hay House, Inc., 2014.
371 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm
"For many years, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer's fans have wondered when he would write a memoir. Well, after four decades as a teacher of self-empowerment and the best-selling author of more than 40 books, Wayne has finally done just that! However, he has written it in a way that only he can-with a remarkable take-home message for his longtime followers and new readers alike-and the result is an exciting new twist on the old format. Rather than a plain old memoir, Wayne has gathered together quantum-moment recollections. In this revealing and engaging book, Wayne shares dozens of events from his life, from the time he was a little boy in Detroit up to present day. In unflinching detail, he relates his vivid impressions of encountering many forks in the road, taking readers with him into these formative experiences. Yet then he views the events from his current perspective, noting what lessons he ultimately learned, as well as how he has made the resulting wisdom available to millions via his lifelong dedication to service. As a reader, you will feel as if you are right there with Wayne, perusing his personal photo album and hearing about his family, his time in the service, how he writes his best-selling books, and so much more. In the process, you'll be inspired to look back at your own life to see how everything you have experienced has led you to where you are right now. Wayne has discovered that there are no accidents. Although we may not be aware of who or what is "moving the checkers," life has a purpose, and each step of our journey has something to teach us. As he says, "I wasn't aware of all of the future implications that these early experiences were to offer me. Now, from a position of being able to see much more clearly, I know that every single encounter, every challenge, and every situation are all spectacular threads in the tapestry that represents and defines my life, and I am deeply grateful for all of it." I Can See Clearly Now is an intimate look at an amazing teacher, but it also holds the key for seekers on a personal path of enlightenment. Wayne offers up his own life as an example of how we can all recognize the hand of the Divine steering our individual courses, helping us accomplish the mission we came here to fulfill"-- Provided by publisher.

Gottlieb, Daniel, 1946-
New York, NY : Sterling Ethos, 
viii, 192 pages ; 22 cm
"While some people may believe that it's impossible to acquire persrspective like Daniel Gottlieb's without a similarly catastrophic life experience, the fact is that every infant possesses a raw need to keep on going. Gottlieb's book awakens us to the idea of our natural perspective, traces the growth and diminishment of that perspective over the years, and brings us back to advanced age, where it recurs once more. If we are aware of this capacity in ourselves, we can actively nurture it, enabling ourselves to embrace the desire to live and grow every day, whether we're joyful or in the grip of a powerful depression. In a time of anxiety and worry, Gottlieb's words provide comfort and strength-if we can remember the wisdom we're born with, we can possess a limitless energy to keep fighting"-- Provided by publisher.

Does personality matter? --and other preliminaries -- What is personal intelligence? -- Clues to ourselves : concealed and revealed -- The people out there -- Feeling information -- A guide to making choices -- Growing up with personal intelligence -- Personal intelligence in adulthood -- The power of personality.
"The groundbreaking psychologist argues that understanding personality is the key to our well-being. We are all curious about what people are thinking and what makes them tick. This urge to understand others helps us to adapt successfully to the world around us. Now, in Personal Intelligence, the renowned psychologist John D. Mayer reveals that we all possess a type of intelligence--a master guidance system--that allows us to understand the motives, traits, and plans that direct people's personalities, including our own. Mayer, who co-developed the theory of emotional intelligence, argues that there exists a broader, guiding intelligence called "personal intelligence." Drawing on classic case studies and cutting-edge research, and illustrating his points with examples from successful baseball players to talented portrait artists, he demonstrates that a diverse group of skills--previously regarded as unrelated--form a coherent mental ability that we use to evaluate ourselves and others. He shows how people high in personal intelligence (PI) solve problems that range from anticipating other people's behavior to motivating themselves over the long term. Describing these skills for the first time and providing readers with suggestions for ways to improve their own PI, Mayer puts forward an important message about personality and happiness"-- Provided by publisher.

"Is science ever enough to explain why we feel the way we feel? In this engaging account, renowned neuroscientist Giovanni Frazzetto blends cutting-edge scientific research with personal stories to reveal how our brains generate our emotions. He demonstrates that while modern science has expanded our knowledge, investigating art, literature, and philosophy is equally crucial to unraveling the brain's secrets. What can a brain scan, or our reaction to a Caravaggio painting, reveal about the deep seat of guilt? Can ancient remedies fight sadness more effectively than antidepressants? What can writing poetry tell us about how joy works? Structured in seven chapters encompassing common human emotions-anger, guilt, anxiety, grief, empathy, joy, and love-Joy, Guilt, Anger, Love offers a way of thinking about science and art that will help us to more fully understand ourselves and how we feel"-- Provided by publisher.

""Organized" and "artist" don't usually go together. Creative types are more often seen as sensitive, melodramatic, eccentric, misunderstood, and the like. To labels like this, Sam Bennett says, "Congratulations! You're an artist." And through The Organized Artist Company, she has coached hundreds of artists to overcome procrastination, lack of focus, and time-sucking habits so that they can get their art done and out into the world. Bennett explains why "procrastination is genius in disguise" and then prescribes dozens of wonderfully revelatory exercises. From "My Heroes" lists to "Could Do" lists (because To-Do lists make Bennett belligerent) to recognizing who you should not talk to about your project and when research has created Analysis Paralysis, each of these actions requires only a 15-minute commitment. But while quickly accomplished, each shifts the reader's thinking and prompts the kind of insights that have the power to turn underperforming geniuses into accomplished artists"-- Provided by publisher.
