Editorial Review Decision Power: How to Make Successful Decisions With Confidence.



What is the book about?




Whatever it is that you need to be happy and successful--from a perfect spouse to a satisfying job, the home of your dreams, or complete self-confidence--here's an astonishingly easy and effective way to achieve your goals.
Decision Power is the first guide to show you how to balance thought and feeling--the mind and the heart--to make sound decisions that also satisfy your most deep-seated desires. Its tested approaches and practical tools enable you to: evaluate every decision so that you clearly define the problem and address the real issues; develop feasible alternatives that all reflect your goals and values; make tradeoffs you can live with when you have to choose between two or more goals pulling you in different directions; overcome doubts, setbacks, or obstacles that at first appear overwhelming; trust yourself to make the right choice and gain support from family and friends for your decisions.
You'll find 12 proven decision-making methods in all, that work in concert to help you access your feelings ... sharpen your problem-solving skills ... and increase your resourcefulness, inner strength, and confidence.
Presented in the form of a checklist, this unique tool allows you to "test" a decision before it's implemented ... refine or revise it if you're not totally satisfied, or if new information or events change the picture.
By following the step-by-step approach laid out in Decision Power, you'll never again follow a course of action that seems well-thought-out but fails to meet your underlying needs.

Man's Search for Meaning

Man's Search for Meaning

Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl's memoir has riveted generations of readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. Frankl's theory-known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos ("meaning")-holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we ...

The Joyful Vegan: How to Stay Vegan in a World That Wants You to Eat Meat, Dairy, and Eggs

Finding plant-based recipes? Easy. Dealing with the social, cultural, and emotional pressures of being vegan? That’s the hard part. Motivated by a desire to eat more healthfully or live more ethically, many people choose veganism as a logical and sensible response to their concerns about animals, the environment, and their health. Yet, despite their positive intentions, they’re often met with resistance from friends, family members, and society at large. These external factors can make veganism socially difficult—and emotionally exhausting—to sustain.
