The Power of NOW

The Power of NOW

Ekhart Tolle’s message is simple: living in the now is the truest path to happiness and enlightenment. And while this message may not seem stunningly original or fresh, Tolle’s clear writing, supportive voice and enthusiasm make this an excellent manual for anyone who’s ever wondered what exactly “living in the now” means. Foremost, Tolle is a world-class teacher, able to explain complicated concepts in concrete language. More importantly, within a chapter of reading this book, readers are already holding the world in a different container–more conscious of how thoughts and emotions get in the way of their ability to live in genuine peace and happiness.

Tolle packs a lot of information and inspirational ideas into The Power of Now. (Topics include the source of Chi, enlightened relationships, creative use of the mind, impermanence and the cycle of life.) Thankfully, he’s added markers that symbolise “break time”. This is when readers should close the book and mull over what they just read.

‘THE POWER OF NOW can transform your thinking. The result? More joy, right now.’ — Oprah Winfrey ‘Pointing to the portals of the eternal Present, this practical mystic’s modern gospel offers transcendent truths that set us free.’ — Dan Millman ‘In the self-help heaven that is the US, Eckhart Tolle is fast becoming the next Deepak Chopra. His book, THE POWER OF NOW, is the bible du jour – a must-read for anyone looking for a modern take on spirituality…Essential reading for anyone who might be feeling weighed down by the past or fearful of the future’. — Red ‘This book is generating quite a buzz of excitement. It is quite simply one of the clearest and most accessible texts on becoming more present that we have seen.’ — Kindred Spirit ‘Reading this book has taught me to witness my actions from several viewpoints. I have read it many times over and I get more from it each time I dip in. I try to read a few pages each morning and carry those words with me throughout the day. I’ve recommended it to lots of friends, who have also found it helpful.’ — Belinda Carlisle

An Amazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work and in Your Life

Who Moved My Cheese

Who Moved My Cheese

This book helps trigger toughts on parts of life you might not even know you’re thinking of changing. It puts things into perspective and gently speaks to your unconscious mind, guiding you to make the decisions you have already made.

Change can be a blessing or a curse, depending on your perspective. The message of Who Moved My Cheese? is that all can come to see it as a blessing, if they understand the nature of cheese and the role it plays in their lives. Who Moved My Cheese? is a parable that takes place in a maze. Four beings live in that maze: Sniff and Scurry are mice, non-analytical and non-judgmental; they just want cheese and are willing to do whatever it takes to get it. Hem and Haw are “little people”, mouse-size humans who have an entirely different relationship with cheese. It’s not just sustenance to them; it’s their self-image. Their lives and belief systems are built around the cheese they’ve found. Most of us reading the story will see the cheese as something related to our livelihoods–our jobs, our career paths, the industries we work in–although it can stand for anything, from health to relationships. The point of the story is that we have to be alert to changes in the cheese and be prepared to go running off in search of new sources of cheese when the cheese we have runs out.

‘One of the most successful business books ever’, Daily Telegraph .’Dr. Johnson has the rare ability to be interesting, provocative and succinct. My admiration is complete.’, Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, author of The Power of Positive Thinking

From the bestselling co-author of The One Minute Manager series comes this guide to help you anticipate, adapt to and enjoy change in your life, thereby achieving success. Johnson delivers his message via a simple parable about creatures living in a maze, looking for cheese to nourish them and keep them happy. The book is split into three sections: in ‘A Gathering’, a group discusses how they currently deal with change; in ‘The Story of Who Moved My Cheese?’ we find the parable itself; and in ‘A Discussion’, the group talks about what the story meant to them and how they mean to use it in the future. There are also fun cheese illustrations bearing key advice: ‘Monitor Change – Smell The Cheese Often So You Know When It Is Getting Old’. Quick and easy to read. (Kirkus UK)

Why Talk to a Guru?
Why Talk to a Guru? When You Can Whisper to a Horse. The art of Natural Leadership
Author: Paul Hunting
Horse Joy – The Natural Leadership Centre – with Paul Hunting

Why talk to a Guru?

Why talk to a Guru?

I met Paul several years ago.. and one afternoon later, i was happy to be changing jobs, and leaping into the unkown with a plan, and trust in myself.. a few years later, with many great experiences behind me, the experience of Horse Joy still remains as something i can’t explan and relish.

This book is profound. It deserves a second reading. This is more than about horses. It’s about you.” Terry Tillman, World Renowned Leadership Coach, Trainer and Best-Selling Author Natural leadership liberates your right and destiny to have a joy-filled, healthy, abundant life. ‘Guru?’ offers you practical keys to unlock the spiritual intelligence that enables this. It shows how skilled coaching alongside horses will help you harness your natural potential to create a sustainable future and lead the life you are meant to. This is not about horses – nor about coaching, business, psychology, philosophy, physics or theology. Inspired by one man’s evolving relationship with horses – and through them to the spirit in all things – it challenges all these disciplines to raise their game. It is an extraordinary work: sometimes subtle, sometimes passionate, always provocative. ‘Why talk to a guru? When you can whisper to a horse’ With this intriguing question, Paul Hunting challenges our assumptions and paradigms that conceal the truth of who we are. He reveals phenomenal insights into the nature of man and the universe.

It will enrage those with ‘sacred cows’ to keep and liberate those who are truly looking for greater meaning, purpose, and joy. With his horses he both honours and cancels out the animal in us. We are left holding our true spiritual nature in the palm of our hand. While primarily intended to unleash authentic, natural leadership in sustainable businesses, he is spotlighting the cause of issues unconsciously affecting us all. ‘Guru?’ is a practical antidote to the primordial superstitions of religious dogma, New Age ‘psychism’ and the nihilistic reductionism of modern science – all equally demeaning to the true nature of the human spirit. This work is essential reading for those who really do care about a sustainable future and are willing to pick up the gauntlet to become part of the solution.

This book was recommended to me by Simon at www.WebTyrant.com having heard about it from Eugene Ware, Adam Spiel and Brad Fallon. I’m so glad I stayed around after Web Tyrant Live.. This booked changed my mindset about my business .. almost as much as E-Myth.

I’d recommend this to anyone that gets overwhelm and is trying to make a real difference.. not just add an extra £ here or there.

E-myth Revisited
Work On Your Business, Not In It
Author:  Michael Gerber

The E Myth Revisited

The E Myth Revisited

I wish I’d read this book 10 years ago.. There are so many “Doh” moments, where I found myself going, that’s where I went wrong.. So many of us get it wrong, and this should be essential reading.. I can’t believe no one told me to read it before. (Many thanks to Simon Hedley, I owe you one for recommending this)

Michael Gerber’s The E-Myth Revisited should be required reading for anyone thinking about starting a business or for those who have already taken that fateful step. The title refers to the author’s belief that entrepreneurs–typically brimming with good but distracting ideas–make poor businesspeople. He establishes an incredibly organised and regimented plan, so that daily details are scripted, freeing the entrepreneur’s mind to build the long-term success or failure of the business. You don’t need an MBA to understand or follow its directives; Gerber takes time to explain buzzwords and complex theories. Written in a clear and well-paced manner, The E-Myth Revisited is like receiving advice from an old friend.

The Brand Messiah

The Brand Messiah – Jonathan Gabay

The Brand Messiah
Author: Jonathan Gabay

The Brand Messiah

The Brand Messiah published in 2012 is a book who’s time has come.

Jonathan Gabay is a well established expert on branding and marketing, and his book for many will seem like fantasy but for those with an inside track the connections and similarities will be closer than many would expect.

The books is a fictional tale set in 2012 around Sam, the head of a global media agency, who is rolling out the new initiative.

It has some great lines and messages, and is a book that we feel is set to become a cult classic.

If you loved the work of Steve Jobs and Apple, then you owe it to yourself to read The Brand Messiah.
