Redefine Success from the Ground Up

Readers of books such as You Are a Badass, Limitless, The Big Leap, Designing Your Life or Who Says You Can't? You Do will love The High Achiever’s Guide.

Decide what success means for you: Are you trapped in a gilded cage of your own making? Conventionally successful, but not necessarily fulfilled? You’re making money, have a career and lifestyle that you thought you always wanted. But now you’re there and it’s not all you expected it to be. If this sounds familiar, you’re not alone. A dismal one out of three people report feeling happy with their lives, so what do you do about it?

You Do You: Maki Moussavi knows firsthand how it feels to be stuck in the rut of conventional success. A former corporate career professional, Moussavi's early life was filled with messages of working hard, chasing the dream, getting degrees, and making money. After creating the “success” that she’d been taught to value, she found herself questioning how the hell she ended up feeling stuck, restless and unfulfilled. But through a journey of self-examination, she learned how to raise the bar of self-expectation and thrive. And now, The High Achiever’s Guide shares her best tools and processes to determine what fulfillment means to you, so you can thrive with empowered confidence.

The High Achiever’s Guide pilots you through four major themes of personal development:

  • Clarifying your limiting beliefs and the outdated mindset that has been holding you back
  • Identifying the external or internal factors that drive you
  • Making space for the new, updated mindset that will take you to the next level
  • Showing you how to take inspired action and commit to the vision you have created for your life

Yoga: A Manual for Life is for anyone interested in yoga, mindful movement and meditation, and exploring how these practices fit within the modern world.

As well as an extensive guide to poses, this book features a number of picture-led sequences with specific targets in mind: to combat stress and fatigue, to ground, to uplift, to inspire creativity and to sleep better. These sequences are underpinned with essays on yoga's relationship with different aspects of life, such as yoga and discipline, yoga and self-care, and yoga and difficulty. Peppered throughout the book are mindful 'life hacks' - simple ways to take yoga's message of radical self-care off the mat and into daily life.

In recent times there has been a great rush in the yoga world to embrace the digital with online classes, apps and web-guides to the practice. Increasingly, though, people are starting to realize the practice isn't particularly compatible with the screen, and that digital guides stop them from being mindful and present in the moment. Yoga: A Manual for Life is an opportunity for people to turn off their laptops, put away their phones and follow simple, clearly laid out sequences that will help them disengage from technology and hone their concentration and focus.

With the advent of big data technology, organisations worldwide are creating data exceeding terabytes in size. Due to the variety of data that it encompasses, big data always entails a number of challenges related to its volume, complexity and vulnerability. The need to manage cyber risks across an enterprise-inclusive of IT operations-is a growing concern as massive data breaches make news on an alarmingly frequent basis.

With a robust cyber risk management system now a necessary business requirement, organisations need to assess the effectiveness of their current systems in response to a dynamic and fast-moving threat landscape. This book goes beyond a mere response to cybercrime and addresses the entire crisis-management cycle. The authors have created a primer for corporate houses and individuals alike on how they should deal with cyber incidences and develop strategies on tackling such incidences.

Manhunters: How We Took Down Pablo Escobar [EPUB]

Manhunters: How We Took Down Pablo Escobar [EPUB]
Manhunters: How We Took Down Pablo Escobar by Steve Murphy, Javier F. Peña
2019 | EPUB | ISBN: 9781250202888 | 31.99MB

For the first time, legendary DEA operatives Steve Murphy and Javier F. Peña tell the true story of how they helped put an end to one of the world’s most infamous narco-terrorists in Manhunters: How We Took Down Pablo Escobar―the subject of the hit Netflix series, Narcos.

Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar’s brutal Medellín Cartel was responsible for trafficking tons of cocaine to North America and Europe in the 1980s and ’90s. The nation became a warzone as his sicarios mercilessly murdered thousands of people―competitors, police, and civilians―to ensure he remained Colombia’s reigning kingpin. With billions in personal income, Pablo Escobar bought off politicians and lawmen, and became a hero to poorer communities by building houses and sports centers. He was nearly untouchable despite the efforts of the Colombian National Police to bring him to justice.

But Escobar was also one of America’s most wanted, and the Drug Enforcement Administration was determined to see him pay for his crimes. Agents Steve Murphy and Javier F. Peña were assigned to the Bloque de Búsqueda, the joint Colombian-U.S. taskforce created to end Escobar’s reign of terror. For eighteen months, between July 1992 and December 1993, Steve and Javier lived and worked beside Colombian authorities, finding themselves in the crosshairs of sicarios targeting them for the $300,000 bounty Escobar placed on each of their heads.

Undeterred, they risked the dangers, relentlessly and ruthlessly separating the drug lord from his resources and allies, and tearing apart his empire, leaving him underground and on the run from enemies on both sides of the law.

Manhunters presents Steve and Javier’s history in law enforcement from their rigorous physical training and their early DEA assignments in Miami and Austin to the Escobar mission in Medellin, Colombia―living far from home and serving as frontline soldiers in the never ending war on drugs that continues to devastate America.
