Our existence is fragile. I learned that in many intricate ways, so I do not take today for granted. I do not know what tomorrow will bring. I do not even know if tomorrow will come.
On the eve of Thanksgiving 2016, I received the diagnosis of stage 4 lung cancer. Next to dying, I fear the spread of cancer to my brain and losing my ability to think, speak, or write. This loss would be devastating to me.
The fragility of our life made me want to be authentic. Therefore, I am writing this memoir to be authentic—we become our true selves when we author who we are.
I am afraid of being forgotten. Death does frighten me. But more than dying, I am scared of having no one remember me or, even worse, of being recognized differently from who I was. At the same time, I have never thought that I was entitled to ask others not to forget me. But, not to be forgotten is precisely what I yearn for.
While I am writing for the other, I am simultaneously writing for myself. I am one of the readers and will test the subject as it gets written. My criteria are stricter. I want to say, “This is my narrative.”
I need to be able to say, “This is my narrative.”

Dream big. Set ambitious goals. Be surprised with the outcome!
At the age of 68, while still recovering from his second knee injury, Dr. Zeev Gilkis decided to give himself an unusual present for his 70th birthday.
He dreamed of running a full Marathon, and completing the seventh decade of his life seemed to him the ideal timing to do so.
Perhaps this ambitious goal wouldn’t have been so unusual, had he been a very physically active person in his younger years. But Zeev is a cancer survivor who began his ‘career’ in sports relatively late, in his mid-sixties.
Along with his plans and dreams he kept a diary where he recorded the ups and downs, practical tips and original thoughts that crossed his mind in this long, challenging journey.
The key motive of this book is running. But it is not just running. It is a whole process of learning yourself, feeling your body and a lot of psychology.
The author sees sharing his experiences, as his mission in life to inspire others to set ambitious goals and go for it. Setting a goal is motivating and causes us to take out from ourselves the best!
Join Zeev in this adventure and discover that age doesn't matter. You too can achieve anything you truly dream of.
In his first two books: Unlock Bliss, A Memoir of Getting Happier and The Secret of Life, A Memoir of Getting Younger, Dr. Zeev Gilkis shares with readers the story of his struggle with cancer, some important and original thoughts and insights into life and happiness, such as that “Age doesn’t matter!” among many others.
In a very friendly manner and a conversational style, he describes some of the key processes in the brain, the role of the immune system and how to care for it, the story of how he got into sports in his sixties, and much more good stuff.
The book tells the stories of 39 patients with incurable lung cancer. It aims to help patients, families, and healthcare providers understand the experience of living with cancer. It also invites reflections on the essential questions of meaning, resilience, and coping with adversity in life. The author is a family doctor, teacher, and researcher who is also a stage 4 lung cancer patient himself. He is patient #40.
Patients with cancer often have an urgency to find meaning in life. They struggle with the illness, its emotional impact, and the consequences of treatments. However, with time, reflection, and support from others, they develop resilience. Cancer patients often are not passive. Instead, they choose different strategies to maintain and restore their health. They also leverage a variety of approaches to cope better with their struggle.
The book is for cancer patients who are tarrying at the limits of time. It is also for those who live around patients with cancer: caregivers, families and friends, and health care providers. People who struggle with other illnesses will also find aspects of their story reflected here. Also, the ones who have experienced a crisis of identity will discover elements of their story here as well. By sharing the experiences of the forty authentic individuals, the book opens the space for them to teach others. This book is about the essence of the human experience at its limits. It is for every reader.
You’re positive you saw a flirty text from another woman on your husband’s phone. Yet, when you confront him, he tells you you’re imagining things and being paranoid.
A co-worker sarcastically mentions that you’re not contributing enough to the big project. When you get offended, they say they were just joking and that you’re too sensitive.
Your mother constantly criticizes your weight. When you bring up her comments around other people, she denies ever saying them and says you are making up stories.
Have you repeatedly found yourself in these types of situations where you end up doubting yourself?
They might have occurred with different people, in different circumstances, but the way they make you feel is the same.
Your feelings are trivialized, your thoughts are manipulated, and your reality is denied.
When this is done to you repeatedly, you begin to feel confused or even crazy. You are left questioning your own reality and sanity.
These are classic signs that you’re being gaslighted, and it’s something to take very seriously.
Gaslighting is a covert form of abuse that affects your confidence and trust in yourself, which the abuser then takes advantage of to keep you under their control.
Whether it’s a spouse, parent, or co-worker, it’s hard to break loose from the grip of a gaslighting manipulator.
You will need to know how gaslighters operate, how their behavior is affecting you, and how you can reclaim your truth.
In Gaslighting & Narcissistic Abuse Recovery, you will discover:
And much more.
Acknowledging that you’re being abused is the first step towards recovery.
After years of gaslighting, you may be so used to it that you no longer recognize this is not a normal way to live.
You might believe that there’s no way out, or you can’t imagine life without the one who’s manipulating you.
But if you truly want to be able to live life on your own terms, cutting yourself off from the source of your pain is essential.
It won’t happen overnight, and it will take committed effort, but you can feel like yourself again – the person you used to be… the person you’re meant to be.

In a conversational style and a friendly manner, the author is sharing his secrets about living better and longer, while enjoying every moment.
He tells his story, how after recovering from an advanced stage cancer he began competing in triathlon and surfing waves, despite being already in his sixties.
Even 10 minutes of some sport activities per day can improve the quality of life as well as physical and mental health, dramatically.
The message the author wants his readers to receive is, that each and every one – at any age and physical condition, shall be encouraged to be more physically active!
All in all, physical activity is the best investment in health, in our quality of life and in our future – to grow old with health and vitality.
Men use as many as 13,000 fewer words in any given day than women. This means that gestures, such as nodding the head are a great deal more significant to a man. His nod needs to mean something, and to him, it means he agrees with you.
Let's use listening as an example.
When a man is listening, he is focused on a particular problem that needs to be solved. He assumes you need something fixed. Every word you say is running through a ‘man filter’ that weeds out everything but ‘what can I do about this’?
He lacks patience to hear your entire story. He’s looking for the parts of the conversation that pertain to his role. Once he’s figured that out, he is likely to jump in with a solution.
Women, on the other hand, don’t necessarily talk to have a problem solved. The conversation alone can be all that’s necessary in a given situation. The fact that a man is listening may be enough for her and she has no need of an active solution to any problem. She needs to feel heard, which, in turn, makes her feel loved. Unfortunately, men don’t often get this.
Bridge the Gap
If you want someone to listen to you go on in detail about something, one of your female friends is going to be your best bet, but if you have a problem that needs to be solved, your man is all ears. Go ahead and feed him the details! He lives for that type of engagement with you. He shows you he loves you by helping you solve your problems. This is actually a biggie for men.
No longer will you have to guess what he is thinking. Now you will know his untold secrets!
No, I’m not here to tell you what you individually should want from your next partner, but I will make some suggestions on things you might not have thought of so far. Obviously, you want the great guy. The problem is that the others can come disguised as a great guy. How can you tell them apart?
To the right man, it won’t matter if you have two tails attached to your ass. He will love you for the genuine person you are, tails and all. He won’t care that you are such an avid book reader that you’ve got your books double-stacked on your bookshelves. He won’t care that you’re so into your dog that the dog’s leash, collar and winter jacket are all personalized. I teach how to find the right guy!
Here, we wrap up the book and start applying the principles learned! You've come a long way by books end and you will be chomping at the bit to reign in a guy!

Is gold just for the rich?
Is it irrelevant in this highly digital economy?
Will it be of any use to your already diversified portfolio?
With prices at thousands of dollars for a few grams, gold is an expensive element.
You’d have good reason to believe that it’s only something the wealthy would buy, and probably just as a part of their collection of expensive things.
But gold is much more than a material for luxurious jewelry or for ornate decorations.
Nowadays, gold is considered a safe haven for investors in an increasingly volatile market.
Some investors invest in gold when they foresee a recession, inflation, or uncertainty. Others hold on to gold to preserve wealth, while having a vehicle to pass it on to future generations.
In short, because uncertainty is inherent in any investment and in any economy, gold can serve as insurance in case of economic or political disasters.
Even in a highly digitized economy, gold continues to be attractive because it’s a tangible asset that can still be of value, even if our entire monetary system collapses.
Fortunately, gone are the days when you had to pan for gold in a river, under the heat of the sun, with the possibility of ending up with nothing but a severe sunburn.
In today’s economy, gold is easier to access and more affordable as well.
There are several ways to invest in gold that require nothing more than a computer, an internet connection, and a reasonable amount of money.
Don’t lose out on the benefits of gold in your portfolio, even if you don’t have billions of dollars to spare.
In THE PEOPLE’S GOLD: EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE, EVERY TIME!, you will discover:
And much more.
Whether you think the economy as we know it will collapse in the foreseeable future, or you’re just looking for a hedge against low interest rates, gold offers you this protection and more.
Even if you think your portfolio is already diversified enough, with stocks, bonds, real estate, and more, gold can still make a valuable addition to your portfolio.
Its unique qualities & ability to hedge against both equities & fixed income securities offer an extra layer of diversification & protection, especially for the most extreme cases.
Don’t wait until the economic system collapses. Get some gold now and ensure that you're financially protected in case anything ever happens.
