You're Too Smart for This: (beating the 100 big lies about your first job)

by Michael Ball

Your first job isn't all it's cracked up to be . . . You just spent $100,000 on a college degree to make photocopies. And your manager probably isn't even happy with them. Life at the entry level isn't about what school you graduated from, or even who you know. It's actually about paying dues and brownnosing and keeping your foot out of your mouth during meetings. You're Too Smart For This explains everything your college professors didn't: Understand how college has no application to reality, or anybody living in it. Come to terms with doing gruntwork and smiling while being yelled at. Get straight with operating on a team - putting personal interests second, for once. Negotiate office politics, and recognize when to keep quiet (e. g. , "the daytime"). Earn the right promotion or transfer, instead of quitting and being poor again. Locate a balanced work life, not based on social sacrifice and being hostile. You're Too Smart For This will help you get the hang of the working life soon enough. And even have some fun with it. Especially at happy hour.

You're the Only One I Can Tell: Inside the Language of Women's Friendships

by Deborah Tannen

This warm, wise exploration of female friendship from the #1 bestselling author of You Just Don’t Understand will help women lean into these powerful relationships. Best friend, old friend, good friend, bff, college roommate, neighbor, workplace confidante: Women’s friendships are a lifeline in times of trouble and a support system for daily life. A friend can be like a sister, daughter, mother, mentor, therapist, or confessor—or she can be all of these at once. She’s seen you at your worst and celebrates you at your best. Figuring out what it means to be friends is, in the end, no less than figuring out how we connect to other people. In this illuminating and validating new book, #1 New York Times bestselling author Deborah Tannen deconstructs the ways women friends talk and how those ways can bring friends closer or pull them apart. From casual chatting to intimate confiding, from talking about problems to telling what you had for dinner, Tannen uncovers the patterns of communication and miscommunication that affect friendships at different points in our lives. She shows how even the best of friends—with the best intentions—can say the wrong thing, and how words can repair the damage done by words. Through Tannen’s signature insight, humor, and ability to present pitch-perfect real-life dialogue, readers will see themselves and their friendships on every page. The book explains • the power of women friends who show empathy, give advice—or just listen • how women use talk to connect to friends—and to subtly compete • how “Fear of Being Left Out” and “Fear of Getting Kicked Out” can haunt women’s friendships • how social media is reshaping communication and relationships Drawing on interviews with eighty women of diverse backgrounds, ranging in age from nine to ninety-seven, You’re the Only One I Can Tell gets to the heart of women’s friendships—how they work or fail, how they help or hurt, and how we can make them better.

As we prioritize our finances and commit to making God's way of doing things our primary focus, we can begin to experience the financial blessing God promises in His Word.In YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE WEALTHY, Creflo Dollar gives spiritual and practical wisdom on how to position yourself for financial increase. Not only must you activate spiritual principles such as walking by faith and obedience, but you must also learn how to operate in a level of stewardship that demonstrates character, responsibility, and wisdom. Anyone can reach the level of divine wealth that God desires for His people to walk in by doing what is necessary to receive the abundance that rightfully belongs to us as songs of God. You are supposed to be rich.

by Kate Murphy

You're Not Enough (And That's Okay): Escaping the Toxic Culture of Self-Love

by Allie Beth Stuckey

Is your quest to love yourself more actually making you miserable?We're told that the key to happiness is self-love. Instagram influencers, mommy bloggers, self-help gurus, and even Christian teachers promise that if we learn to love ourselves, we'll be successful, secure, and complete. But the promise doesn't deliver. Instead of feeling fulfilled, our pursuit of self-love traps us in an exhausting cycle: as we strive for self-acceptance, we become addicted to self-improvement.The truth is we can't find satisfaction inside ourselves because we are the problem. We struggle with feelings of inadequacy because we are inadequate. Alone, we are not good enough, smart enough, or beautiful enough. We're not enough--period. And that's okay, because God is.The answer to our insufficiency and insecurity isn't self-love, but God's love. In Jesus, we're offered a way out of our toxic culture of self-love and into a joyful life of relying on him for wisdom, satisfaction, and purpose. We don't have to wonder what it's all about anymore. This is it. This book isn't about battling your not-enoughness; it's about embracing it. Allie Beth Stuckey, a Christian, conservative new mom, found herself at the dead end of self-love, and she wants to help you combat the false teachings and self-destructive mindsets that got her there. In this book, she uncovers the myths popularized by our culture of trendy narcissism, reveals where they manifest in politics and the church, and dismantles them with biblical truth and practical wisdom.

You're a Robot: Self-help and personal development guide

by Manuel Triguero

Within us there is a world in continuous boiling, made up of a whole network of circuits, connections and structures that give rise to a permanent torrent of thoughts and emotions, which gradually circulate through our minds on many occasions without our causing them voluntarily. This happens daily throughout all hours of the day. It is a passionate space of images that arise in an accelerated way and repeat and fade as time goes by. It is like a chaotic, disorganized universe, on which it is necessary to establish an order, a classification of priorities, a logic and a new structure. It is our inner world. It is like another hidden life that we should take out to try to analyze it, instead of continuing to remain in the daily film in which we are sometimes immersed and do not recognize ourselves, so that we come to feel empty when we verify that on many occasions we are not ourselves. Our mind is an essential tool for our survival and development in the environment in which we live. Thanks to it we can develop our full potential: all those qualities that we possess and that on many occasions we are not aware of. It is the most precious asset that we have, so our main concern should be to get to know its operation, to know the most important elements that make it up, because depending on how we use it, so will be our journey through life in all senses. Although it would not only be enough to know the main components that make it up, it is also necessary to achieve the right wisdom to know how to use it and get its full hidden potential. This requires a constant curiosity and search for information that can clarify the doubts and those gaps that we have in most cases about some aspects that are key and that govern mental life. For all these reasons, it should be said in the first place that the mind is made up of an unconscious and a conscious part. The unconscious part comprises approximately 95% of the t

You're a Miracle (and a Pain in the Ass): Embracing the Emotions, Habits, and Mystery That Make You You

by Mike McHargue

&“Holding brain science in one hand and rich emotional presence in the other, this book feels timely and necessary.&”—Shauna Niequist, New York Times bestselling author of Present Over PerfectWhy is there such a gap between what you want to do and what you actually do? The host of Ask Science Mike explains why our desires and our real lives are so wildly different—and what you can do to close the gap. For thousands of years, scientists, philosophers, and self-help gurus have wrestled with one of the basic conundrums of human life: Why do we do the things we do? Or, rather, why do we so often not do the things we want to do? As a podcast host whose voice goes out to millions each month, Mike McHargue gets countless emails from people seeking to understand their own misbehavior—why we binge on Netflix when we know taking a walk outside would be better for us, or why we argue politics on Facebook when our real friends live just down the street. Everyone wants to be a good person, but few of us, twenty years into the new millennium, have any idea how to do that. In You&’re a Miracle (and a Pain in the Ass), McHargue addresses these issues. We like to think we&’re in control of our thoughts and decisions, he writes, but science has shown that a host of competing impulses, emotions, and environmental factors are at play in every action we undertake. Touching on his podcast listeners&’ most pressing questions, from relationships and ethics to stress and mental health, and sharing some of the biggest triumphs and hardships from his own life, McHargue shows us how some of our qualities that seem most frustrating—including &“negative&” emotions like sadness, anger, and anxiety—are actually key to helping humans survive and thrive. In doing so, he invites us on a path of self-understanding and, ultimately, self-acceptance. You&’re a Miracle (and a Pain in the Ass) is a guided tour through the mystery of human consciousness, showing readers how to live more at peace with themselves in a complex world.
