For Stanley, life stopped dead in its tracks the day his young son was accidentally killed. His wife, Lisa, tried to push forward into the future-but her husband didn't even know where to begin. Then Charles Montgomery III appeared out of nowhere and challenged the couple to consider the inconceivable, "What I am about to tell you will change your life. You can have anything you want, including true happiness, and I am going to tell you the secret of how to get it." Will Stanley let go of the past and grab hold of a future full of love and a new destiny? Will Lisa take her friend's advice and leave Stanley for the guy at the fitness club? Or will they continue to be haunted by the pain and guilt of that fateful day when Eddy died? The Lamp brings Stanley and Lisa face to face with past tragedy and future hope-all wrapped in the gift of three wishes that will challenge you to live beyond the hurt and pain, if you just believe.

What if you could sit down with some of the world's most influential entrepreneurs and gain their knowledge and insights on how to create a game changing business? Imagine having the chance to listen to a John Mackey (Whole Foods) or a Fred Smith (FedEx) on the most important things they've learned from their experiences. Or having the benefit of the self-reflection of Howard Schultz of Starbucks, who had to come back to the company he originally built to reinvent it and himself? Of course it's not possible to deliver these rock star entrepreneurs to your dinner table. But John A. Byrne offers the next best thing: he spoke with many who have changed the face of business. In World Changers he captures the most important lessons they've learned, the biggest challenges they've tackled, and the most valuable advice they can offer others who have an entrepreneurial dream. You'll learn the inspiring stories of how these world changers discovered their disruptive ideas, then made them a reality; overcame a variety of obstacles; and created sustainable enterprises. You'll get the firsthand accounts of how: Bernie Marcus and Arthur Blank got the confidence to start The Home Depot after being fired from their jobs. Reed Hastings turned a forty-dollar video late fee into a disruptive upstart called Netflix. Herb Kohler, the "reluctant prince of porcelain," came back to the family business and made it number one in its industry again. Narayana Murthy, after one fateful train ride and wrongful incarceration, converted from communist to capitalist and cofounded one of the most successful entrepreneurial ventures in India. World Changers is an inspiration for those who want to create something meaningful on their own. It serves as both a celebration of entrepreneurial achievement as well as a practical handbook for everyone who dreams of starting his or her own world-changing business.

IT’S A JUNGLE . . . IN HERE! Behind our stress, clutter, and confusion is an infinitely spacious place one might call stillness or joy. This is our natural state of being, but we usually don’t experience it, because we are caught in a web of material possessions, desires, and fears. Our clutter often becomes another member of the family that we feed, house, and lug around. In Your Spacious Self, author and professional space clearing expert Stephanie Bennett Vogt shows us that it’s not our stuff but the holding on to it that creates a force field of stuck-ness that clouds our perceptions and paralyzes our lives. Clutter is not just the junk spilling out of the closet. It is anything or thought that prevents us from experiencing who we truly are. With daily tips, meditations, and a decluttering checklist, Your Spacious Self will show you how to: CLEAR THE CLUTTER in your home and in your lifeREVEL IN YOUR OWN SPACIOUSNESS, a place of stillness and joyLET GO OF THE PEOPLE, PLACES, AND THINGS that no longer serve the joyous being that you are Radical in its message and elegant in its simplicity, Your Spacious Self offers a new model that combines the ancient wisdom of space clearing with the modern practicality of clutter clearing. It teaches us that clearing is not just something we do but is also a powerful way to be—one small step, drawer, or moment at a time.
