The prescriptive follow-up to the New York Times bestseller The Dream Manager.

One of the major issues in our lives today is work-life balance. Everyone wants it; no one has it. But Matthew Kelly believes that work- life balance was a mistake from the start. Because we don't really want balance. We want satisfaction.

Kelly lays out the system he uses with his clients, his team, and himself to find deep, long-term satisfaction both personally and professionally. He introduces us to the three philosophies of our age that are dragging us down. He shows us how to cultivate the energy that will give us enough battery power for everything we need and want to do. And finally, in five clear steps, he shows us how to use his Personal & Professional Satisfaction System to establish and honor our biggest priorities, even if we spend a lot more time on some of the lesser ones.

Think and Grow Rich: The 21st-Century Edition [Audiobook] by Napoleon Hill, read by Michael McConnohie

Napoleon Hill, maker of millionaires, adviser to the titans of business and industry, and confidant of presidents, started out a long way from the executive boardroom or the White House. He was born into poverty in a one-room log cabin in the mountains of southwest Virginia. Like most who achieve positions of power and influence, his rise to success was the result of many factors. However, unlike most, Napoleon Hill analyzed each key event, identified the lesson learned, reduced the lessons to basic principles, and organized the principles into a philosophy of personal achievement that could be used by anyone as a guide to creating their own success. The first significant influence on Hill was after his mother's death when he was but eight years of age. Young Nap was fast becoming a gun-toting hell-raiser, when his father remarried and his new stepmother came into his life. Martha Ramey Banner was a woman of such clearly defined purpose and positive attitude that she altered the fortunes of the entire Hill family. Her influence on Napoleon would echo throughout his life.

By the age of fifteen the former troublemaker had become a contributing writer for the local newspapers. By nineteen he had made himself the youngest manager of a coal mine, then quit to study law, became a partner in a lumber business, got wiped out by the market, went into the automobile business, then reinvented himself as a business journalist -- all before he was twenty-five. The second major influence on Napoleon Hill -- and the creation of his philosophy -- came when he was assigned to write a profile of the famed steel baron Andrew Carnegie. Their three-hour interview turned into a three-day marathon. It concluded with Carnegie proposing that he would introduce Hill to the most powerful men in America so that Hill could learn from them their secrets of success. But he would do so only if Hill agreed to use those secrets to write a philosophy of success that would be made available to, and could be understood by, the average person.

Much more than a self-improvement audiobook, Think and Grow Rich: The 21st Century Edition offers you a complete philosophy of personal achievement. It will teach you methods to create success consciousness within yourself, and it will provide you with a detailed blueprint for achieving that success. Think and Grow Rich: The 21st-Century Edition is an audiobook that will not just change what you think, it will change the way you think.

Brandwashed: Tricks Companies Use to Manipulate Our Minds and Persuade Us to Buy [Audiobook] by Martin Lindstrom, read by Dan Woren
2011 | M4A@64 kbps + EPUB | 10 hrs 40 mins | 296.91MB

From the bestselling author of Buyology comes a shocking insider’s look at how today’s global giants conspire to obscure the truth and manipulate our minds, all in service of persuading us to buy.

Marketing visionary Martin Lindstrom has been on the front lines of the branding wars for over twenty years. Here, he turns the spotlight on his own industry, drawing on all he has witnessed behind closed doors, exposing for the first time the full extent of the psychological tricks and traps that companies devise to win our hard-earned dollars.

Picking up from where Vance Packard's bestselling classic, The Hidden Persuaders, left off more than half-a-century ago, Lindstrom reveals:

  • New findings that reveal how advertisers and marketers intentionally target children at an alarmingly young age – starting when they are still in the womb!
  • Shocking results of an fMRI study which uncovered what heterosexual men really think about when they see sexually provocative advertising (hint: it isn’t their girlfriends).
  • How marketers and retailers stoke the flames of public panic and capitalize on paranoia over global contagions, extreme weather events, and food contamination scares.
  • The first ever neuroscientific evidence proving how addicted we all are to our iPhones and our Blackberry’s (and the shocking reality of cell phone addiction - it can be harder to shake than addictions to drugs and alcohol).
  • How companies of all stripes are secretly mining our digital footprints to uncover some of the most intimate details of our private lives, then using that information to target us with ads and offers ‘perfectly tailored’ to our psychological profiles.
  • How certain companies, like the maker of one popular lip balm, purposely adjust their formulas in order to make their products chemically addictive.
  • What a 3-month long guerilla marketing experiment, conducted specifically for this book, tells us about the most powerful hidden persuader of them all.
  • And much, much more.

This searing expose introduces a new class of tricks, techniques, and seductions – the Hidden Persuaders of the 21st century- and shows why they are more insidious and pervasive than ever.
