Ego is the enemy / Holiday, Ryan

""While the history books are filled with tales of obsessive visionary geniuses who remade the world in their image with sheer, almost irrational force, I've found that history is also made by individuals who fought their egos at every turn, who eschewed the spotlight, and who put their higher goals above their desire for recognition." --from the prologue"--

The subtle art of not giving a f*ck : a counterintuitive approach to living a good life / Blackstone Audio, Inc.
Subtle art of not giving a fuck
"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**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Mason 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**k is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mindset that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up. Manson makes the argument, backed both by 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**k 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**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives"--

Welcome home : a guide to building a home for your soul / Zebian, Najwa

Najwa Zebian shares her concept of home to guide readers to embrace their vulnerability, discover their self-worth, and build their own strong foundations from the ground up. In Welcome Home, Najwa shares her own personal story for the first time, powerfully weaving memoir, poetry, and deeply resonant teachings, from leaving war-torn Lebanon for Canada at sixteen, to coming of age as a young Muslim woman in Canada, to sexual harassment that left her alienated from her community, to building a new identity for herself as she learned to speak her truth. She teaches that home is not a physical place, but instead where your soul feels like it belongs, where you are loved for who you are. Every human deserves to own a home within themselves, and Najwa guides you in building this home. She begins by showing how to divide your house into the following rooms: Compassion, Self-Love, Guilt, Forgiveness, Silence, Sadness, Happiness, Confusion, Vulnerability, and Anger. And then, with stories and practical advice, she shows you how to build each room. Welcome Home is ultimately a guide to building that space inside yourself rather than looking outside yourself for that sense of safety and worth.

The power of letting go : how to drop everything that's holding your back / Purkiss, John.

When you let go, you live intuitively. Everything flows, because you are no longer attached to things being a certain way, to being a certain person or always being right. What a relief. The irony is that when you feel stuck in any area of your life - career, relationships, purpose, health or money - letting go can seem very hard. You cling on for dear life just at the moment you need to take the leap. In The Power of Letting Go, John Purkiss explains why we should let go and how we can do it, using proven techniques to make things happen.
