  • Mind Shift : It Doesn’t Take A Genius To Think Like One


    Throughout his thirty years of work as a mindset expert and leadership coach , Erwin Raphael McManus has been obsessed with these questions: Why do some people succeed despite having all the odds stacked against them? How do others achieve the unthinkable, only to watch their lives slip away? Are there mental structures for failure and success?

    McManus has come to realize that too many of us have “near-life” experiences. We almost pursue our dreams. We almost make the decision that changes everything. We are always one choice away. If we want to live without regret, we need to make a mind shift–trading beliefs that limit our potential for ones that help us move toward optimal performance and pursue the success of being fully alive. We must move from a life of obligation to a life of intention.

    In Mind Shift, McManus brings together twelve mental frameworks that have helped some of the most accomplished people on earth create internal structures of success. Among them:

    – You have to choose between acceptance and uniqueness. If you are addicted to affirmation, you will become what others want you to be rather than who you were created to become.

    – You don’t need an audience. It’s what you do in private that makes you who you are.

    – Talent is a hallucinogen. It will make you believe that hard work and discipline are for everyone else.

    Sharing experiences from entrepreneurs, artists, professional athletes, and his own career, McManus shows us how to transform our thinking–and, in turn, transform our lives.

  • Infinite Influence : Captivate, Connect, And Compel Anyone, Anytime


    Unintentional or not, choosing the wrong actions while interacting with people will rob you of your ability to captivate, connect with, and compel someone to make decisions in a way that is mutually beneficial. Instead, move forward intentionally to capitalize on priceless moments using the seven simple actions that create Infinite Influence. With limitless influence, you harness your power to wake up wealthier every single day.

    In a world moving and evolving at breakneck speed, your ability to authentically connect with people from all walks of life in every interaction matters. The challenge of building trust quickly–knowing what to think, say, and do–might seem impossible. However, the solution is rather simple, often overlooked, and wildly undervalued.

    As someone born under-resourced and underestimated, Alyson Van Hooser discovered exactly how to build influence with anybody…and now she is sharing her top seven secrets with you. Alyson experienced firsthand how the right mindset behind simple actions enables you to attract people who become invested in you. In this book, she reveals her immediately actionable, proven approach you can use to create endless opportunity.

    Infinite Influence delivers the eternal perspective and behaviors to create instant connections that endure a lifetime. Because we know that success is neither built nor destroyed by one person, you must intentionally and precisely assemble relationships with friends, family, teams, customers, and communities to advance together. Without the right strategy, you choose self-sabotage–people will disengage from you, resulting in averted attention, fading loyalty, lost sales, and more.

    Others have succeeded in applying these simple actions to create Infinite Influence and wake up wealthier every day. Will you?

  • Napoleon Hills Positive Influence


    Napoleon Hill spent twenty years of his life interviewing the most successful men in America in order to write the first book on the science of personal achievement. In the course of his studies, he developed seventeen success principles. These teachings explain each of them, In order, they are Definiteness of Purpose, the Master Mind Alliance, Going the Extra Mile, Applied Faith, Self-Discipline and Cosmic Habit Force. Hill often referred to these as the most important of the success principles.

    Hill and his last wife, Annie Lou, established the Napoleon Hill Foundation 1962, and it continues today to publish his books, videos, audios and lectures. These six lectures were transcribed but never before published and only recently found by the Foundation. The Trustees of the Foundation have chosen the title “Napoleon Hill’s Positive Influence” for this book because these lectures deal with many of the influences which help people to become successful, and which drove Hill to achieve his own successes.

    One of Hill’s greatest influences was business tycoon Andrew Carnegie, who commissioned him in 1908 to undertake his twenty-year investigation. During his investigation, he discovered that important positive influences on successful people included having self-discipline, learning from adversity, working in harmony with others, selecting “pace makers”, surrounding oneself with positive books and mottos, being guided by Faith and what Hill called “Infinite Intelligence”, social and physical heredity, and the law of Cosmic Habit force, by which one’s habits become ingrained in one’s personality and character. All of these positive influences are covered in these lectures.

    In addition to Andrew Carnegie, a number of individuals were positive influences in Hill’s life, and they too are discussed in the lectures. Those who he knew personally, and who are referenced in the lectures, include Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Franklin Roosevelt, Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Elmer Gates, Alexander Graham Bell and Edwin Barnes. On a more personal level, he speaks fondly of his step-mother and his wives who helped him with his endeavors. We are fortunate to be able to present an Introduction to the book by Napoleon’s grandson, J.B. Hill, and a Preface by Napoleon Hill Foundation Executive Director Don M. Green, both of which explain the important roles played by these women in bringing positive influences to bear on his life and work.

  • Master Mind : The Memoirs Of Napoleon Hill


    Napoleon Hill on two occasions wrote extensive memoirs about his life, starting with his youth in Wise County, Virginia, and ending, apparently, during World War II. I say “apparently” because the archives of the Napoleon Hill Foundation contain these two manuscripts, but they are obviously incomplete and end in the 1940s. Mr. Hill died in 1970. His last book, Grow Rich with Peace of Mind, was written in 1967 and sheds some light on his later years; but his own journals and memoirs of those years, if they ever existed, have not yet been found.

    The two memoirs were titled by Mr. Hill, Wheel of Fortune and Hand of Destiny. They contain details of his life, including his four marriages, two divorces and one annulment, which we at the Foundation have not seen in any of his other writings or speeches. They also contain many details about his successes and failures in business and there were more failures than successes, as he readily admits. The memoirs contain thoughtful insights into the state of mind of this great thinker–how he dealt with failure, profited from defeat, turned adversity into advantage, and ultimately achieved happiness with his last wife, Annie Lou, happiness which had eluded him for most of his life.

    Mr. Hill has said that the Master Mind principle, in which two or more minds work harmoniously to achieve a common goal, is the most important of the seventeen principles of success he studied during his decades of research into how people attain happy and successful lives. One of the many interesting stories in the memoirs is about how he and his third wife, Rosa Lee, used the Master Mind principle to discover the only one of the seventeen principles that no one had understood or realized before, Cosmic Habitforce.

    The Trustees of the Napoleon Hill Foundation have combined the two memoirs into one, editing out repetition and putting events in chronological order where it made sense to do so. They chose to title the combined memoirs Master Mind, in recognition of the importance this principle played in his philosophy and life, and as a tribute to the mental giant who was the greatest thinker and writer ever in the fields of personal achievement and self-improvement.

  • Napoleon Hills Self Confidence Formula


    Your formula to build a strong sense of self-worth so that you can better recognize opportunity, take action on your dreams, and enhance your resilience.

    A lack of self-confidence is one of the greatest maladies of today’s world, one that is responsible for the rampant helplessness, lack of self-control, aimlessness, procrastination, and despair that characterize modern society. But as the venerable steel magnate Andrew Carnegie emphasized to Hill, “Confidence is a state of mind, necessary to succeed, and the starting point of developing self-confidence is definiteness of purpose.”

    The time for self-doubt and self-criticism is over. Your faith in yourself and your abilities determines whether you fail or succeed. Napoleon Hill’s Self-Confidence Formula enables you to boost your self-confidence through the application of Hill’s strategies for controlling your thoughts. By implementing these principles, you will not only be able to operate at a higher plane of thought and action–attracting more opportunities, gaining influence, and strengthening relationships–but you will also be able to instill this critical quality in others.

    Napoleon Hill’s Self-Confidence Formula gives you the keys to success and fulfillment by equipping you to:
    *unlearn fears, insecurities, and limitations acquired in childhood and adolescence
    *condition your mind to believe in the certainty of your success
    *take bold, confident action on your definite chief aim
    *conquer your inferiority complex through the mastermind principle
    *build the self-reliance and self-esteem of today’s youth

    You are now on the journey to confident, purposeful living. As you implement Hill’s principles, you will cultivate a state of mind primed to accept the abundance reserved for you.

  • No Pain No Gaines


    Chip Gaines likes to sweat.

    That’s been true ever since he was a little pint-sized hustler selling candy and Capri Suns down at the public tennis courts in northeast Texas. You’ve probably seen him sweat on his television show, Fixer Upper. Deep in his bones he has always known that hard work yields great results, even when there’s little observable evidence of it. On the cusp of launching into what might be the hardest work he and his wife, Joanna, have ever done-building a television network-Chip realized that he’s as proud of the man he’s become as what he’s achieved, and that man would not exist without his network of people.

    Call it a network, a community, a home team. We’ve all got one, including you. Today it might be made up of your family, your neighbors, the people you work with. But if you want a network that will pull you into a life of meaning, a life of joy and connection, you need to be intentional about choosing the people in it. People who are enlivened and electrified by the power of living according to their purpose, who are always in pursuit of lifelong learning, and who have a sincere belief that relationships are more than transactions. Chip Gaines has been building that kind of network his whole life, and he can tell you, it doesn’t come easy.

    To say it requires sweat equity would be an understatement. It requires faith in people. It requires hope. And it requires a willingness to grow even when it hurts. In No Pain, No Gaines, through hard-won lessons and personal stories, Chip will coach you on how to build a network of your own that will make your life richer than you’ve ever imagined.

  • Accountability Circle : Discovering Your True Purpose, Potential, And Impac


    “We are responsible for things…but we are accountable to people. When we discover our own unique purpose, and then make and keep personal commitments that support that purpose, that is accountability. If everyone in the Accountability Circle makes and keeps those commitments, then accountability becomes a way of life.” -Sam Silverstein

    THE ACCOUNTABILITY CIRCLE gives you a trusted group of Accountability Partners for your life, your career, and your business. They support you in identifying and acting on your Purpose, your Mission, and your Values…and you support them in turn.

    THE ACCOUNTABILITY CIRCLE is where you go to become the best person you can be. It is much more than a mastermind group. It goes far deeper than networking and sharing best business practices. It is about becoming a truly accountable person and a leader in your own life.

    THE ACCOUNTABILITY CIRCLE goes far beyond your current “circle of friends” … and creates a powerful group of allies who are focused on your best interests, based on your unique purpose and mission.

    THE ACCOUNTABILITY CIRCLE is the ultimate personal development strategy and the critical leadership advantage.
    We all want to reach our potential, become the best version of ourselves, and get the most we possibly can out of life. We all want to maximize our impact and leave a legacy that inspires other people to be their best.

    For most of us, the problem is not that we are not trying to be our best. The real problem is that we are unable to see and understand fully what our very best can be. We may think that we have to create our own solutions and cannot ask for help.

    However, this vision of a self-reliant accountability is wrong. In fact, everything we have been taught about accountability is wrong. Accountability is not about having to prove ourselves, create some original idea, or live an independent life, and it is certainly not about “holding others accountable.” Quite the contrary-accountability is all about commitments and interdependence. We need other people to help us to be our very best, and we need to help other people to be their very best. It is in helping others fulfill their potential that we identify and achieve our own true potential!

    Action always comes with belief. When you begin taking action with full accountability in your Accountability Circle, you will begin to see people differently, show up differently, commit differently, and bring people into your life diffe

  • Uncopyable : How To Create An Unfair Advantage Over Your Competition (Expanded)


    What separates average businesses from extraordinary successful ones? Better product? Nope. Your competitor will rapidly reverse-engineer your “secret sauce” and get their “better-than-you” version on the market faster than you can say “Usain Bolt.”

    Better customer service? Guess what? All of your competitors say they provide the best customer service. It’s a wishy washy phrase … a vague generality with no meaningful specific.

    Better pricing? You’re kidding, right? The company that lives on price dies on price.

    More harsh reality: Almost all industries today struggle with the increasing commoditization of their products and services, putting considerable pressure on prices and margins, leading to fiercer competition.

    The Solution?

    You must create an Uncopyable Attachment with your customers. They must see you as not only delivering a superior product but also as high-value relationship they simply cannot get anywhere else. In Uncopyable, Steve Miller compellingly argues that new advantage isn’t found by going “oustide the box” – you must actually build your own box. Uncopyable will guide you to achieving an unfair and enduring competitive advantage.

  • Real Artists Dont Starve


    Bestselling author and creativity expert Jeff Goins dismantles the myth that being creative is a hindrance to success by revealing how an artistic temperament is in fact a competitive advantage in the marketplace. Now in trade paper.

    For centuries, the myth of the starving artist has dominated our culture, seeping into the minds of creative people and stifling their pursuits. But the truth is that the world’s most successful artists did not starve. In fact, they capitalized on the power of their creative strength. In Real Artists Don’t Starve, Jeff Goins debunks the myth of the starving artist by unveiling the ideas that created it and replacing them with timeless strategies for thriving, including:

    steal from your influences (don’t wait for inspiration),
    collaborate with others (working alone is a surefire way to starve),
    take strategic risks (instead of reckless ones),
    make money in order to make more art (it’s not selling out), and
    apprentice under a master (a “lone genius” can never reach full potential).
    Through inspiring anecdotes of successful creatives both past and present, Goins shows that living by these rules is not only doable but it’s also a fulfilling way to thrive.

    From graphic designers and writers to artists and business professionals, creatives already know that no one is born an artist. Goins’s revolutionary rules celebrate the process of becoming an artist, a person who utilizes the imagination in fundamental ways. He reminds creatives that business and art are not mutually exclusive pursuits. In fact, success in business and in life flow from a healthy exercise of creativity.

    Expanding upon the groundbreaking work in his previous bestseller The Art of Work, Goins explores the tension every creative person and organization faces in an effort to blend the inspired life with a practical path to success. Being creative isn’t a disadvantage for success; rather, it is a powerful tool to be harnessed.

    Epilogue: A Theocentric Approach To Business Ethics

    Additional Info
    When the daily business news breaks away from stories of profit and loss, it often shines a spotlight on ethical failures. But Christians aim to be ethical in all the areas of daily life and work-not just when the spotlight is on them. For those facing the many questions and quandaries of doing business with ethical integrity, Alec Hill offers a place to begin.

    In this third edition of a popular textbook on business ethics, Hill carefully explores the foundational Christian concepts of holiness, justice, and love. These keys to God’s character, he argues, are also the keys to Christian business ethics. Hill then shows how some common responses to business ethics fall short of a fully Christian mindset. Using penetrating case studies on such pressing topics as employer-employee relations, discrimination and affirmative action, and environmental damage, he clothes principles in concrete business situations.

    Updated throughout, and with a new chapter on international business, this new edition of Just Business is an excellent introduction to business ethics for students, and a timely refresher for men and women already in the marketplace.

    The expanded edition of the now-classic business parable that shares the secret for stratospheric success: changing one’s focus from getting to giving and then enjoying the returns that naturally follow.

    First published in 2007, The Go-Giver has become a classic business parable. It’s sold over 250,000 copies in the US and won fans in many organizations. Glenn Beck recently called it “a must-read” for anyone that wants to change the world.

    The story introduces us to an ambitious young man named Joe who yearns for success, but feels as if the harder and faster he works, the further away his goals seem to be. One day, desperate to land a key sale at the end of a bad quarter, he seeks advice from the enigmatic Pindar, a consultant referred to by his many devotees simply as the Chairman.

    Over the course of the heartwarming tale, Joe learns that changing his focus from getting to giving ultimately leads to unexpected returns.

    What does the Bible really say about money? About wealth? How much does God expect you to give to others? How does wealth affect your friendships, marriage, and children? How much is “enough”?

    There’s a lot of bad information in our culture today about wealth-and the wealthy. Worse, there’s a growing backlash in America against our most successful neighbors, but why?

This has left a lot of godly men and women honestly confused about what to do with the resources God’s put in their hands. God’s ways of handling money caused them to build wealth, but then they’re left feeling guilty about it. Is this what God had in mind?

  • 1 Plus 12


    Visionary Leadership. Many people talk about it. Some have written about it. A few have been called visionary leaders. But only one man embodied its full meaning-Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Crucified and risen over 2,000 years ago, his visionary leadership continues to draw multitudes of followers today. Most writings about Jesus focus on what he did-proclaim the kingdom of God-and why-to save the world from its sin-but have neglected how he did it. How did his vision for establishing the Christian faith become so successful? How has Christianity lasted longer and grown larger than any other organization in history? In his ground breaking work “One Plus Twelve,” Lee Bartolomei delves into the how of Christianity through a detailed examination of who Jesus Christ is and his simple, yet multi-layered vision for making disciples. Bartolomei then shows how any organization-business, non-profit, religious, and more-can become successful and enduring in just three short years! Bartolomei shows you how to:
    * Establish core ideology, values, and purpose that make up a vision
    * Find and develop like-minded leadership who can carry out a vision
    * Confront the brutal facts that hinder a vision
    * Develop a culture of discipline to continue a vision …and much more!

    Additional Info
    Kingdom leadership does not begin and end at the church door. Christians are called to conduct leadership in government, commerce, schools, neighborhoods, families, para-church ministries and a myriad other contexts. God has given us many gifts, and our responsibility is to be stewards of those gifts, and use them to do the King’s work. In that context, this comprehensive text explores key facets of leadership from a Christian worldview so as to equip people to conduct leadership more authentically than would be possible under alternative paradigms. The book begins with the seldom considered theological foundations of leadership while also tracing the historic roots of management, organization and leadership theories. All of this leads to a robust discussion of five essential challenges and practices–communication, negotiation, decision-making, financial stewardship and personal development. The combined efforts of these experts in the field provide a practical theology of leadership from a Christian worldview for emerging and established leaders. Here is the foundation needed for those who want to conduct leadership in a manner consistent with their faith in both religious and nonreligious organizational contexts.

  • 108 Skills Of Natural Born Leaders


    Some people appear to be “natural born leaders.” But are they literally born that way? Or have they been taught, coached, rewarded, and reinforced in ways that enable them to be leaders? According to The 108 Skills of Natural Born Leaders, no one is born a leader. But everyone has the natural born capacity to lead. We label people “”natural born leaders”” because they consistently and frequently model qualities that inspire others to commit to their direction. This book identifies the skill set that causes others to see people as natural born leaders, helps readers assess their current level of these skills, and coaches readers to master their weak areas. Readers will learn: * Foundation skills, including self-awareness and the ability to establish rapport * Direction skills, including the ability to set a course and develop others as leaders * Willing follower skills, including the ability to influence others and create a motivating environment.

  • Derailed : Five Lessons Learned From Catastrophic Failures Of Leadership


    What causes a leader to fail? What can we learn from those who have fallen? How do we avoid failure of our own?

    These are just a few of the questions answered in Derailed: 5 Lessons Learned from Catastrophic Failures of Leadership, a book for leaders and aspiring leaders of all levels by Tim Irwin, Ph.D. Derailed chronicles the collapse of six high-profile CEOs, the factors that drove their downfalls, and the lessons that we can learn to stay on track and avoid derailing our own lives and careers.

    The story of the fallen CEO has become a cultural fixture: veering off course with the force of a train careening off its tracks, leaving fiery wreckage and devastating injury throughout the organization. These executives are often the smartest and most respected individuals in their industries, with glittering resumes and histories of successful leadership. Yet they astonish us by driving the train dramatically off course, blinded by unchecked power and arrogance.

    Dr. Tim Irwin believes that these leaders suffer from failures of character that are common to each of us–even the most capable individuals. Deficits in authenticity, humility, self-management, and courage become more dangerous as we take on more leadership, and can cause us to ignore glaring signals that might otherwise save us from catastrophic demise. Derailed profiles the collapse of six high-profile CEOs (Robert Nardelli – Home Depot, Carly Fiorina – HP, Durk Jager – Proctor and Gamble, Steven Heyer – Starwood Hotels, Frank Raines – Fannie Mae, Dick Fuld – Lehman Brothers) and the factors that drove their downfalls, finding that derailment actually happens long before the crash and can be avoided. Derailed explains the character qualities that are essential for successful leadership and how to cultivate them so that we can avoid being derailed.

  • Life On The Wire


    Imbalance is natural.

    The key is to make it purposeful.

    In Life on the Wire, New York Times best-selling author Todd Duncan challenges the status quo in search of a better, smarter way to work and live. He profiles several people striking out to find “balance.” You’ll meet an entrepreneur, a bartender, and an accountant, among others. You’ll hear their stories, their challenges, their insights, and the critical lessons they learned. Duncan contends the last thing we need amid life’s inherent imbalance is another attempt at a how-to formula for perfect balancea*equal parts work and life. In fact, he argues that such a holy grail does not exist. Instead, he has issued a more pragmatic formula he calls purposeful imbalance: the process of purposefully leaning toward work without sacrificing life and purposefully leaning toward life without damaging your career. It is precisely the way a tight-rope walker makes his way across a one-inch rope without falling.

    “I’ve always believed that when you’re at work, you should work hard, and when you’re at home, you should play hard. That’s easy to say, but for a lot of people it’s hard to do.

  • Pillars Of Prosperity


    If you grew up in the country, you may have once or twice seen a turtle perched atop a fence post. The first thought to cross your mind upon seeing this unusual sight would probably be that the turtle did not get on top of that fence post by itself; it had help.
    This analogy is meant to represent just that – something accomplished that would not normally be possible without the assistance of someone or something more capable. That is the message of this book: how to accomplish more with less; how to go higher financially (and in other areas of life) than your talents and abilities would otherwise take you; how to position yourself to be propelled by God Himself to heights you may have never thought possible; and why God wants to prosper the people who attend their ears to His methods.
