In Success Trap, Dr. Stan Katz, an eminent Beverly Hills psychologist, shows you how to create a personal philosophy of success, one based not on the expectations of society, which so often distort our perceptions of what we want, but on a careful examination of your real character and needs. If your idea of success is presiding over a shareholders' meeting, flashing your smile on the cover of a national magazine, or showing off your perfect family, you might be trapped by your ambitions. As Dr. Katz shows in this compassionate, thought-provoking study, these measures of success are limited and limiting--if you accept them unthinkingly. What we all need is an internal measure of success, a firm idea of what it takes, not to be considered successful by others, but to feel successful ourselves.This revolutionary book proposes nothing less than a new definition of success, a new philosophy of life, and a realistic path to fulfillment and happiness.

We live on little sleep and exercise but a lot of work. We eat junk and processed foods on the run and fuel up with caffeine and sugar. We are chronically overcommitted, subjected to a 24/7 news cycle, and can't take our eyes off our computers and PDAs. Is it any wonder that anxious is the new normal? Our bodies are hardwired to cope with stress, but we are biologically ill-equipped to handle the kind that we endure today. The human brain, in all its majesty, can't distinguish true physical emergencies from daily hassles, deadlines, information overload, difficult decisions, guilt, and worries. The physiological reaction is the same: a chronic hormonal surge born of our instinctive fight-or-flight response. The result is a cluster of dangerous symptoms: immune deficiencies, high blood pressure, weight gain, insomnia, and a wide range of other ailments. This is what world-renowned integrative physician Dr. Roberta Lee has defined as the SuperStress syndrome, which is caused by our overstimulated, undernourished lifestyle. In this empowering, life-changing book, Dr. Lee presents the solution to SuperStress. She shows how you can build stress resistance and resilience into your life with a unique prescription for recognizing, rebalancing, and protecting against stresses small and large. Starting with a comprehensive, informative questionnaire to determine your stress level and stress personality type, The SuperStress Solution then guides you through a 4-week healing program to reset your rattled nervous system to a default state of rest rather than high alert. Discover how to *Nourish your body with nutrient-rich foods, herbs, and supplements that repair stress damage *Detox your system and jump-start your body's healing with an easy-to-follow eating plan *Sleep well again by following simple steps to protect and promote the rest your body needs *Move to simple, low-impact exercises that can be done in five-minute to one-hour increments *Retrain your mind so you can access a sense of peace and calm even in your most stressed-out moments. The SuperStress Solution will do more than help you beat back the overload that is making you sick; it will restore physical harmony and balance. More than a program that makes you feel better, it is a program that will make you truly well.

With her trademark no-nonsense approach and building on the principles developed during her long career as a licensed therapist, New York Times bestselling author Dr. Laura shows readers how to survive enemies--traitors, backstabbers, and saboteurs--at work and at home. In her previous New York Times bestsellers, author and renowned radio host Dr. Laura Schlessinger has helped countless men and women become better husbands, wives, parents, and people. She's helped them cope with grief; encouraged them to be moral, compassionate, and considerate individuals; shown them how to handle adversity; and set them on the path to understanding and living happy, well-adjusted lives. Now, in this long-awaited book, Dr. Laura turns to an emotionally explosive subject that has touched all our lives: betrayal and the desire for revenge. And for the first time, she shares her own personal experiences with betrayal, humiliation, and pain, which have led her to a powerful desire for revenge. Intimate and honest, Dr. Laura connects with her readers as never before and puts this subject into context: I concluded that betrayals are frightening, destructive, painful, humiliating, demoralizing, and so very, very hard to repair. Betrayals undermine people, relationships (marriages and families), institutions (churches, schools, businesses, government, politics)-everything. The entire fabric of humanity depends upon people depending upon each other for their word, honesty, and loyalty. Millions of Dr. Laura's listeners struggle with the idea of taking revenge and how to accept when it cannot be achieved. For many who have been betrayed, justice may never be served, she reminds us. Empathetic yet never saccharine, direct yet never harsh, Dr. Laura encourages readers to explore their feelings and learn to get beyond them, supplying tools they can use to achieve fulfilling, contented lives free of rancor and the need to settle scores. Powerful and thought-provoking, Surviving a Shark Attack (on Land) gives readers the emotional defenses they need to overcome the worst life will throw at them, whether it's a cheating spouse, a lying sibling, or a ruthless colleague.
From the book: The first book of its kind, Surviving an Eating Disorder is an inspiring yet realistic guide written expressly for parents, spouses, friends, relatives, and all others who are the "silent sufferers" of anorexia, bulimia, and compulsive overeating. Whether you've just begun to suspect a problem or have been facing the frightening reality of a serious disorder for some time, this reassuring book will help you to overcome feelings of confusion, helplessness, and anger and to take new actions that will encourage the recovery process. The authors, three leading experts in the field, explain what you can expect from the eating-disordered person--and yourself---and what kind of support is available. Drawing on the authors' extensive experience in counseling individuals, groups, and families, and illustrated throughout with vivid case examples, Surviving an Eating Disorder will help answer all your questions, large and small: Why is this happening? Can I keep sweets in the house? What do I say when she asks if she looks fat? How can I help him with his diet? Should I suggest therapy? Will things get better? In Part I, "Gaining Perspective," the authors discuss the psychological components of eating disorders as well as the family contexts in which they develop. Part II, "Confronting the Problem," offers guidance for bringing the problem out into the open, getting the person into treatment, and coping with the possibility of anger and denial. In Part III, "Using New Strategies," the authors show how the situation can be made better--now--by disengaging from the eating disorder (with practical suggestions for handling such daily issues as mealtimes, messy bathrooms, money, and requests for advice) while reestablishing a relationship with the eating disordered person based on issues other than food and weight. The guide concludes with names and addresses of national organizations and a list of suggested readings.
Depression can strike anyone, including those deeply committed to living the Christian life. The author offers the story of her personal journey, as well as those of other Catholics and saints who have experienced depression, exploring faith, and spirituality.
The premise of this book is that learning to let go of anger--and ultimately forgiving the offender--will transform the foundation of every kind of relationship we have. Stanley defines anger as "a strong feeling of intense displeasure, hostility, or indignation as a result of a real or an imagined threat or insult, frustration, or injustice toward yourself or towards someone who's very important to you." Building on this defintion, Stanley...1. Helps readers identify the signs of anger, so they can identify anger in themselves. 2. Reveals the far-reaching consequences of anger, which encompass the spiritual, emotional, and physical. 3. Teaches readers how to handle anger through thirteen concrete steps.4. Walks readers through the steps to true forgiveness and the healing power it brings.With compassion and a wealth of biblical understanding, Stanley explains that the measure of a person is "the size of thing that makes them angry." He goes on to distinguish between healthy and harmful anger and reminds us that "righteous indignation" is a divine emotion. However, he skillfully explains that misguided anger eats away at ourselves, our relationships with others, and our relationship with God. By helping readers look honestly at the source of their anger, he gently leads them to the ability to truly forgive and find the peace they seek.
