Inner Excellence at Work

Inner Excellence at Work
The Path to Meaning,Spirit and Success
By Carol M. Osborn
P 1,225.00

To get ahead in life, you simply have to work long and hard, right? After all, hard work is the foundation of the American dream. But these days people are discovering that working harder - and even smarter - doesn't guarantee the dream will come true, and that by sacrificing their personal needs and desires to ambition and success, they've taken the meaning and joy out of both their personal lives and their work.

If this sounds familiar to you - if you've been fueled by ambition, single-mindedly pursuing success, and wondering why you feel so empty - Inner Excellence at Work is just what you need.

Based on author Carol Osborn's highly acclaimed and successful teachings about spirituality and success, Inner Excellence at Work provides an enlightened approach to career and life management. According to Osborn, success need not vie with your deeply held principles and quality-of-life desires - in fact, by being true to those instincts, you can achieve your greatest success ever (while working less !).

Getting What You Want

Getting What You Want
The 7 Principles of Rational Living
By Robert J. Ringer
P 1,200.00

In this book, author Robert Ringer offers a thinking person's guide to success in any and all areas of life. While we should not achieve our goals at anyone's expense, Ringer believes we have a moral right to act in our best interests over the long term - provided we don't commit aggression against others. In our often wildly irrational world, which advocates quick fixes, bending the rules, and skewing the truth to the needs of the moment, Ringer has found that the path to long-term happiness lies in the creation and defense of personal values. He explains how to get what you want - be it love, career advancement, or respect - by adopting seven principles of a rational lifestyle.

  • Base your actions on truth
  • Focus on values, not entitlements
  • Make choices with civility, dignity, honesty and humility
  • Avoid those who drain your personal resources
  • Rid your self of major encumbrances
  • Develop the self-discipline to act on intellect, not on impulse

Learn from bad breaks and move on
Enlightening, straightforward, and candid, this book is not for people looking for banal formulas. If, however, you are tired of soggy self-help sympathy and are ready to take responsibility for your own future, this book offers a galvanizing message of independence.
