BASED ON THE INCREDIBLE GRADUATION SPEECH WITH OVER 10 MILLION VIEWS ON YOUTUBE
If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed.
On May 17, 2014, Admiral William H. McRaven addressed the graduating class of the University of Texas at Austin on their Commencement day. Taking inspiration from the university's slogan, "What starts here changes the world," he shared the ten principles he learned during Navy Seal training that helped him overcome challenges not only in his training and long Naval career, but also throughout his life; and he explained how anyone can use these basic lessons to change themselves-and the world-for the better.
Admiral McRaven's original speech went viral with over 10 million views. Building on the core tenets laid out in his speech, McRaven now recounts tales from his own life and from those of people he encountered during his military service who dealt with hardship and made tough decisions with determination, compassion, honor, and courage. Told with great humility and optimism, this timeless book provides simple wisdom, practical advice, and words of encouragement that will inspire readers to achieve more, even in life's darkest moments.

“Significant...The book is both instructive and surprisingly moving.” —The New York Times
Ray Dalio, one of the world’s most successful investors and entrepreneurs, shares the unconventional principles that he’s developed, refined, and used over the past forty years to create unique results in both life and business—and which any person or organization can adopt to help achieve their goals.
In 1975, Ray Dalio founded an investment firm, Bridgewater Associates, out of his two-bedroom apartment in New York City. Forty years later, Bridgewater has made more money for its clients than any other hedge fund in history and grown into the fifth most important private company in the United States, according to Fortune magazine. Dalio himself has been named to Time magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Along the way, Dalio discovered a set of unique principles that have led to Bridgewater’s exceptionally effective culture, which he describes as “an idea meritocracy that strives to achieve meaningful work and meaningful relationships through radical transparency.” It is these principles, and not anything special about Dalio—who grew up an ordinary kid in a middle-class Long Island neighborhood—that he believes are the reason behind his success.
In Principles, Dalio shares what he’s learned over the course of his remarkable career. He argues that life, management, economics, and investing can all be systemized into rules and understood like machines. The book’s hundreds of practical lessons, which are built around his cornerstones of “radical truth” and “radical transparency,” include Dalio laying out the most effective ways for individuals and organizations to make decisions, approach challenges, and build strong teams. He also describes the innovative tools the firm uses to bring an idea meritocracy to life, such as creating “baseball cards” for all employees that distill their strengths and weaknesses, and employing computerized decision-making systems to make believability-weighted decisions. While the book brims with novel ideas for organizations and institutions, Principles also offers a clear, straightforward approach to decision-making that Dalio believes anyone can apply, no matter what they’re seeking to achieve.
Here, from a man who has been called both “the Steve Jobs of investing” and “the philosopher king of the financial universe” (CIO magazine), is a rare opportunity to gain proven advice unlike anything you’ll find in the conventional business press.
(Entrepreneurship, business) “Masterful … An immensely appealing book because of its readable style … and its realistic but soft Asian-style illustrations.” – Crystie Cook, poet. A child with a knack for solving problems helps some hungry fish and finds a treasure. Illustrated folk tale teaches how to spot opportunities to help others and make money; comes with ideas for businesses; money-making activities; and online resources on finding customers, managing money, job ideas and moving up in an organization (for ages 5 and up). Young children will be captivated by the story; older ones will want to apply the things they learn.

Note: This is not your typical get up, be positive and do it self-help book.
It’s a book written, in depth, for us to gain a better understanding of why we do things the way we do, the driving factors behind our fears and how to best deal with all of these problematic areas.
Bold, Informative and storytelling. This book will help you start writing a new, happier life.
In this book, you’ll learn:
For some time now, identity theft has been almost universally acknowledged as the fastest-growing crime in the nation, if not the world. So much personal information is now available about the Average Joe that criminals have turned identity theft into an all-you-eat buffet. They drape themselves in your good name and reputation, and - like some evil twin - create havoc in the guise of your person, for which you are wrongfully blamed. However, there are still things you can do to avoid being a victim, as well as regain control after being victimized. This book, in a quick and easy fashion, will show you the steps to take in order to best your evil twin.
Other energy healing books will claim that energy healing can 'magically' and instantaneously heal serious diseases such as cancer or heart disease. These claims however have not been scientifically proven. On the other hand it has been proven that energy healing can improve cardiovascular health by promoting relaxation and alleviate fatigue and pain in cancer patients.
Unlike most energy healing courses, this one is based on the findings of over 200 studies published in peer-reviewed journals done on energy medicine, reiki, therapeutic touch and all other forms of energy healing.
I developed this easy-to-use energy healing technique based on my years of research. It's a lot like Reiki but simpler and more intuitive to use.
In this course you'll learn:
And most importantly, what energy healing can do and can't do.
Energy healing is a skill that requires you to master compassion, focus and intention. A lot of other courses gloss over these important foundations and just teach you a simple 'technique'. But the truth is that the technique is not the most important part.
I'll tell you a story that illustrates this; When I tried to heal a broken leg of a girl I really disliked, the leg ended up getting WORSE after the healing! It took longer to heal and hurt worse.
I did the technique correctly and managed to heal other people properly at this time, but I failed at healing her because energy healing is something that's very much affected by your emotional state of being. That's why in this course I have a whole section designed to teach you compassion, which is crucial for you to become an effective energy healer.
Another important component of energy healing is the ability to focus and to be mindful while you heal. In other courses you're just taught a 'technique' and asked to do it. But nowadays with our smartphones and other distractions, we often struggle with performing such focused tasks. That's why in this course you'll also be given a very thorough mindfulness training which will allow you to perform energy healing like a pro.
Finally, you'll be taught techniques which will help you focus your intention. Once you master intention, compassion and mindfulness, you will be given a technique that will allow you to heal people on a one-on-one basis and via distance.
A holistic approach to health and training that takes rest into account as well as exercise and helps you to develop a routine which is best for YOU, not an 'average' person.

Back pain! As anyone with a backache will tell you, pain, limited activities, and days missed from work take their toll physically, financially, and emotionally.
A big problem with most back care programs is limited treatment options. Pain medications often mask problems, allowing further damage to occur because warning pain is not felt. Physical therapy is limited by what insurance companies deem necessary, and lastly surgery, a costly option, is often ineffective.
The good news is that yoga therapy can help relieve your pain while at the same time improve flexibility and strength. Yoga is great for healing back pain and at the same time is a practice for your entire mind and body. Most people find they sleep better, their mood improves, and they enjoy an enhanced sense of well-being.
This book features two yoga therapy practices. The first is for acute back problems which means you’re in pain right now. This practice is designed to bring structural balance back into your body and gently stretch key muscles, reducing pain and helping you heal. The second practice is designed to build strength and flexibility which helps prevent future problems.
•How to prevent low back problems in the first place.
•The different types of low back problems and why they occur.
•A first-aid section that shows highly effective natural methods for relieving pain.
•Anatomy of the low back.
The back care program in this book has been developed by a highly experienced yoga instructor and chiropractor working together for over 7 years. It’s been used with thousands of people with back issues and has proven to be successful 93% of the time. With the help of this book you can get back into the activities and lifestyle you enjoy, without drugs or costly treatments, and in the comfort of your home.
