Some people seem to be happy no matter what happens in their lives. Some people are sad and depressed no matter how well off they are financially. Some people feel secure and peaceful even though they may have none of the stuff other people have. What's going on here? What's the secret? It may be hard to believe but happiness is only a thought away. It's really true. What happens within determines what happens without. To demonstrate how and why this is true Len Chetkin gives us 100 thoughts and accompanies them with 100 examples from his own life. These hundred thoughts can change the way you look at the world which leads directly to happiness because your own thoughts are the one thing in your life you can control. You can't control other people or what they do. But you can control the way you think about it. In every way possible who we are is the result of what we think. Here's how to understand how that really works. What Len Chetkin learned the hard way you can learn the easy way in this simple yet profound little book.

101 RELATIONSHIP MYTHS How to Stop Them From Sabotaging Your Happiness Tim Ray
In this entertaining and thought-provoking book, Tim presents a revolutionary new way of looking at our relationships and why they can be so problematic - and then he goes on to offer some refreshing, new advice as to what we can do about it.
The book's basic premise is that most of us believe in a wide range of myths about men and women, love and relationships that we have never questioned. It is our unquestioned belief in these myths that confuses us and makes us unhappy in our relationships. To help readers understand the power of myths in our lives, Tim identifies some of our most common 'relationship myths'. And then he shows us how we can free ourselves from them. The result is much greater clarity, joy and love in our relationships.
Some of the myths Tim unveils are:
· A relationship can only work if you compromise · I need a partner to be happy · My happiness is dependent on my partner · If you love me, you'll do what I want · I'm more selfish than my partner if I don't do what my partner wants · I know what is best for my partner · It's better to be in a relationship than to be single · Strong sexual attraction means we're a good match
“Every time you believe that reality should be different than it is right now, you suffer. It's actually that simple." – Tim Ray
When it comes to relationships, there are self-help books all around the world, but I've never read anyone who has done so much research into 'what happens to the hero and heroine after they finally get each other' as Tim Ray — Jane Aamund – Denmark's leading woman writer and author of countless bestselling books An entertaining and courageous book that shows us how we can experience more happiness in our relationships by questioning the traditional way of doing things. I warmly recommend this book to everyone who's interested in personal development — Joan Ørting – Denmark's leading sexologist, couples therapist, TV host, and best-selling author

You think it is a coincidence, but what if you were to discover that it was happening to others - possibly millions of others - all over the world? And that it meant something...something important?
The reports of people noticing strange and repeated associations with the number 11 are on the rise, prompting theories connecting this phenomenon with the coming Mayan calendar end date of 21/12/2012. But it's not just the number 11 that is showing up in people's lives, it is often accompanied by unusual events or profound insights.
Mysterious numbers and strange sequences appear throughout the history of human experience. What do they mean? What secrets do they keep? Are these wake-up calls to a higher state of consciousness, triggers of paranormal experiences or the activation of what some scientists refer to as “junk DNA”? In this fascinating new work, you'll learn about: · Number-based patterns in nature - such as the Fibonacci spiral, the golden ratio and DNA sequences - and the secrets of sacred geometry. · Synchronicity: The science behind coincidences and what they might be trying to tell us. · How the entire universe can be condensed into a handful of mathematical numbers and equations. · The power of numerology in human lives. Is God a number? How numbers relate to the creative force behind all reality.

12 STEPS THAT CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE Real-Life Stories from People Who Are Walking the Walk Barb Rogers
Clean and sober twenty days or twenty years -- it makes no difference. We all need a little help every once in a while. Barb Rogers has been sober for a long time. And she knows that doesn't make a difference -- what makes a difference is that she's clean and sober today.
Rogers' newest book offers true stories from real-life people. Their addictions have led them to a 12-step program. Yet, in working the program, they have found, as the saying goes, that things are simple but not always easy. The important thing -- no matter what difficulties we have with any of the steps -- is to keep working the steps, as many times as it takes. There is no perfection, there is no goal, there is only walking the talk, one day at a time.
In 12 Steps That Can Save Your Life, Barb Rogers once again offers down-home sensible advice, along with stories a struggling reader can identify with. Twelve-step programs are neither cult, curse, or cure. They work because they are ongoing, because the focus is inward and outward, and because people recognize that their lives are better when they work them.
* A welcome addition to core recovery literature -- why and how 12-step programs work -- for alcoholics, addicts, overeaters, workaholics, and more.
* True stories offer inspiration to overcome roadblocks at each of the steps.
* Alcoholism alone affects at least 15% of the population, and other addictions affect millions more of us.
Recovering addicts work the 12 steps because their lives depend on it. Accessing a Higher Power and acting upon the Higher Power’s will is a means for lasting recovery and survival. The 12-Step Recovery Toolkit offers a simple yet effective way to tap into that Higher Power and receive guidance on how to incorporate the twelve steps, tools, and slogans into daily life.
Whether you have a problem or just need a little extra guidance, the cards in The 12-Step Recovery Toolkit allow the recovering addict to ask questions of their Higher Power and pull one or more cards for inspiration and advice. This is a deck that every recovering addict should have in his or her arsenal of 12-step tools.
A recovering addict herself, Stacey J. felt compelled to create the toolkit to help others work the steps and make their way through the program.
The 12-Step Recovery Kit is a tool for recovering addicts created by a recovering addict.
• Designed as a recovery tool for anyone in any stage of a 12-step addiction recovery program.
• Beautiful compact design, to be kept on your desk, in your handbag or briefcase, to be used at any time when you need guidance.
• 60 cards, each containing a slogan, tool, or one liner, and a booklet for further insights.
