Divided into two sections, Subliminal Affirmations and Laws of Attraction guide, this audiobook will show that your subconscious is the most powerful tool to help alter your life in a positive manner. Negative thoughts are like weeds that grow all the time without any nurturing since it´s in the human nature to think of negative consequences.

Packed with subliminal affirmations, the audiobook shows that in order to attract opportunities that will improve your health, love life, or even wealth, all you need are few minutes a day to shift your mind through positive affirmations. You can choose to repeat them loud and proud, or they can be repeated in your mind during idle times such as commuting or even taking a shower. Think positive, be confident and change your life now by taking action and downloading this audiobook. Don´t be a pessimist and navigate away. You can´t achieve any success if your mindset is constantly plagued by negativity. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dan McGowan.

In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be positive all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people. For decades we´ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. ´´F*ck positivity,´´ Mark Manson says. ´´Let´s be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it.´´ In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn´t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let´s-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up. Manson makes the argument, backed by both academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited - ´´not everybody can be extraordinary; there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault´´. Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek. There are only so many things we can give a f*ck about, so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives. 1.

Harvard Medical School psychologist and Huffington Post blogger Craig Malkin addresses the ´´narcissism epidemic´´ by illuminating the spectrum of narcissism, identifying ways to control the trait, and explaining how too little of it may be a bad thing. ´´What is narcissism?´´ is one of the fastest rising searches on Google, and articles on the topic routinely go viral. Yet, the word narcissist seems to mean something different every time it´s uttered. People hurl the word as an insult at anyone who offends them. It´s become so ubiquitous, in fact, that it´s lost any clear meaning. The only certainty these days is that it´s bad to be a narcissist - really bad - inspiring the same kind of roiling queasiness we feel when we hear the word sexist or racist. That´s especially troubling news for millennials, the people born after 1980, who´ve been branded the ´´most narcissistic generation ever´´. In Rethinking Narcissism listeners will learn that there´s far more to narcissism than its reductive invective would imply. The truth is that narcissists (all of us) fall on a spectrum somewhere between utter selflessness on the one side and arrogance and grandiosity on the other. A healthy middle exhibits a strong sense of self. On the far end lies sociopathy. Malkin deconstructs the healthy from the unhealthy narcissism and offers clear, step-by-step guidance on how to promote healthy narcissism in our partners, our children, and ourselves. 1.

Please note: This is a key takeaways and analysis of the book and not the original book. Start Publishing Notes´ Summary, Analysis, and Review of Mark Manson´s The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F--k: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life includes: Summary of the book A review Analysis and key takeaways A detailed "about the author" section Mark Manson, a massively successful dating advice and travel blogger, has written The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F--k to address what he perceives as a major gap in the self-help market. Manson, who has been helping blog readers and clients with their problems for nearly a decade, has isolated a critical, recurring issue: people do not know what to give a f--k about. The book begins with an evaluation of f--k-giving (the profanity is intentional; Manson wants to make sure his points are made in as concise and punchy a way as possible). The author himself, although from a wealthy family in Dallas, struggled with the divorce of his parents and spent many years drifting around, never quite certain of what his priorities in life should be. Along the way, Manson romanced hundreds of women and visited 55 countries. Even so, he hadn´t yet sorted out what values he should give a f--k about and what values didn´t matter quite so much to him. He hadn´t yet had the "practical enlightenment" he believes is the key to humanity´s spiritual well-being. He was very confused about life, even as his online businesses had begun to prosper, because he hadn´t accepted suffering as a natural condition of life. Once he realized that suffering was inevitable and the only things he had control over were his reactions to that suffering, he became, in his words, "spiritually invincible". 1. Language: English.

As the subject of a popular Web reality series, Suzanne Barston and her husband, Steve, became a romantic, ethereal model for new parenthood. Called ´´A Parent is Born,´´ the program’s tagline was ´´The journey to parenthood...from pregnancy to delivery and beyond.´´ Barston valiantly surmounted the problems of pregnancy and delivery. It was the ´´beyond´´ that threw her for a loop when she found that, despite every effort, she couldn’t breastfeed her son, Leo. This difficult encounter with nursing - combined with the overwhelming public attitude that breast is not only best, it is the yardstick by which parenting prowess is measured - drove Barston to explore the silenced, minority position that breastfeeding is not always the right choice for every mother and every child. Part memoir, part popular science, and part social commentary, Bottled Up probes breastfeeding politics through the lens of Barston’s own experiences as well as those of the women she has met through her popular blog, The Fearless Formula Feeder. Incorporating expert opinions, medical literature, and popular media into a pithy, often wry narrative, Barston offers a corrective to our infatuation with the breast. Impassioned, well-reasoned, and thoroughly researched, Bottled Up asks us to think with more nuance and compassion about whether breastfeeding should remain the holy grail of good parenthood. 1.

Avery Dare lives a quiet life in Miami as an online fashion/makeup video blogger. She has good friends and a close, large family, and if her love life is lacking she likes it that way. But when she receives a ticket to one of her ex´s concerts along with an invitation to meet him backstage, she decides to take the risk...and comes face to face with the reality of his rock star lifestyle - the press, the crowds, and the half-naked groupies. At 18 years old, Grey Kingston left everything he knew and loved behind to seek fame and fortune as a rock star, and he found it as the lead guitarist and singer for the band Tangled Royal. Fans adore him, women throw themselves at him, and he can afford everything he couldn´t afford growing up. Yet at the height of his career, he´s ready to walk away and return home to a simpler life...and the woman he left behind. Except moving on isn´t as easy as Grey would like. When Avery is threatened by a stalker, it becomes evident Grey´s fans don´t want him to retire, nor do they want Avery in his life. And Avery isn´t sure she wants the pressures that are part of Grey´s life...but she doesn´t want to lose him again, either. Can their recently renewed love survive the fallout? 1. Language: English.
