9 Things a Leader Must Do

False Assumptions: Twelve Christian Beliefs That Can Drive You Crazy

by John D. Townsend Henry Cloud

Did You Grow Up With These Ideas?~~ - It's selfish to have my needs met. - If I'm spiritual enough, I will have no pain or sinfulness. - If I have God, I don't need people. - Guilt and shame are good for me. - Just doing the right thing is more important than why I do it. - These false assumptions, often taught by well-meaning Christians, can have devastating effects on the mental, spiritual, and even physical welfare of those who live by them. They seem true because they are taught with religious language in Scripture verses. But they are emotional heresies. False Assumptions identifies 12 teachings that sound plausible because they contain a nugget of truth. At some point, however, when Christians try to apply the truth, a breakdown occurs. The result is needless suffering, shame, and guilt. This book shows how the Bible, properly understood, brings emotional health and wellness. God and his Word are part of the solution -- not part of the problem. Avoiding the "easy answers" of many self-help books, Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend show the way to true spiritual and emotional growth with the same kind of healing wisdom that characterizes their best-selling book, Boundaries.

Cloud and Townsend introduce ten "life principles" and then demonstrate how eighteen real-world dilemmas are solved by their application.

It's Not My Fault

by Henry Cloud

What seems like just a common, no-harm-done excuse-"It's not my fault!"-is often a dangerous trap, say Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend, because people don't recognize what the blaming mindset does to them. It not only keeps them from overcoming the effects of all that they can't control-like other people, circumstances and genetics-but separates them from a solution. And when they give away the ownership of their life, they end up losing the one opportunity they have to fulfill their dreams and enjoy God's best. Using eight principles, a variety of true stories and their years of experience as professional psychologists, Cloud and Townsend enlighten readers on how to make empowering choices-and how to build the life they want to live. It may seem impossible but it's true: taking personal responsibility is not only liberating, it is the best-and perhaps the only-way for a person to get what they really want out of life.

The Law of Happiness

by Henry Cloud

Since the beginning of time, people have searched for happiness and have amassed many and varied opinions on how it is found. Only recently has empirical science devoted extensive research to questions such as: Is happiness within our control? What role does God play in making people happy? How do I close the gap between where I want?Drawing from the latest scientific and psychological research on the quest for happiness, The Law of Happiness reveals that the spiritual truths of the Bible hold the secrets to the happiness we desire. As Dr Henry Cloud unpacks these universal, eternal principles, he reveals that true happiness is not about circumstances, physical health, financial success, or even about the people in our lives. In other words, it's not about the factors that are frequently beyond our control. Rather, happiness is found in choosing to become the kind of people God created us to be. With chapter titles like 'Happy People Connect', 'Happy People Are Envy-Free' and 'Happy People Forgive', Dr Cloud shows just how happiness is achieved as he sets readers on a pathway of spiritual transformation that connects them with the God of the universe.

Necessary Endings

by Henry Cloud

End Pain. Foster Personal and Professional Growth. Live Better. While endings are a natural part of business and life, we often experience them with a sense of hesitation, sadness, resignation, or regret. But consultant, psychologist, and bestselling author Dr. Henry Cloud sees endings differently. He argues that our personal and professional lives can only improve to the degree that we can see endings as a necessary and strategic step to something better. If we cannot see endings in a positive light and execute them well, he asserts, the "better" will never come either in business growth or our personal lives. In this insightful and deeply empathetic book, Dr. Cloud demonstrates that, when executed well, "necessary endings" allow us to proactively correct the bad and the broken in our lives in order to make room for the professional and personal growth we seek. However, when endings are avoided or handled poorly-as is too often the case-good opportunities may be lost, and misery repeated. Drawing on years of experience as an executive coach and a psychologist, Dr. Cloud offers a mixture of advice and case studies to help readers know when to have realistic hope and when to execute a necessary ending in a business, or with an individual; identify which employees, projects, activities, and relationships are worth nurturing and which are not; overcome people's resistance to change and create change that works; create urgency and an action plan for what's important; stop wasting resources needed for the things that really matter. Knowing when and how to let go when something, or someone, isn't working-a personal relationship, a job, or a business venture-is essential for happiness and success. Necessary Endings gives readers the tools they need to say good-bye and move on.
