The attitude of a person measures the altitude of his or her success and happiness. Success, and as a resultant happiness, is not determined by how much you earn or what is your status in society. It is determined by whether or not you achieve your chosen goals in life and how you view them. Each person's goals are different. Therefore it is essential for every individual to crystallize his or her vision in order to develop his/her own paradigm and path to success. And this book presents a practical guide to achieve success and happiness in life. Much of what is written is based on the author's own experiences and the philosophy which he has developed by active interaction with others as well as the study of the writings and experiences of great personalities across the world.

"Your Cry Have Been Heard" has a message the world needs to hear, a message of hope from people who have been lost, experienced deep pain, who have been in the bottom of the pit and have found the way out to let us know that no matter who we are, no one is beyond God's reach. It is a unique book filled with wisdom and love, a book that will impact its readers - and with enough readers, will have a positive impact on society as a whole to make this world a better place for all of us to live in. In the fifty plus years I have walked with God, I have seen times change. The world is no longer a place where even children and youth can feel safe and secure. Abuse increases, crime is in the news daily, horror stories I can't fathom. God's Word predicts this - evil will increase in the end times. Beth Michael I don't get easily touched by writers except for the likes of Ted Dekker. YOUR CRY HAS BEEN HEARD is everything I imagined and much more. With its insight, candor, personal tragedies and triumphs this book will mesmerize the reader and go a long way in redeeming many hearts to the throne of grace. God's signature is clearly with this Ministry; it shall come to pass that this book will be published successfully and our goal to touch as many hearts as possible will succeed beyond our wildest dreams. Lawan Baldwin Your Cry Has Been Heard Would you buy this book Yes, certainly, and would try to get it into our schools, libraries, and colleges. This book will touch your heart and open your eyes!

A Simple 12-Step Plan for Getting Your Financial Life Together...Finally
Author: Nicole Lapin
Talking about money sucks; but so does being broke. Do your eyes glaze over just thinking about the mumbo-jumbo of finance? Do you break out into hives at the thought of money? Well, sister, you are not alone. In RICH BITCH, money expert and financial journalist Nicole Lapin lays out a 12-Step Plan in which she shares her experiences, mistakes and all, of getting her own finances in order. No lecturing, just help from a friend. And even though money is typically an off-limits conversation, nothing is off-limits here. Lapin rethinks every piece of financial wisdom you've ever heard and puts her own fresh, modern, sassy spin on it. Sure, there are some hard-and-fast rules about finance, but when it comes to your money, the only person who can spend it is you. Should you invest in a 401(k)? Maybe not. Should you splurge on that morning latte? Likely yes. Instead of nickel-and-diming yourself, Nicole's advice focuses on investing in yourself so you don't have to stress over the little things. But in order to do that, you have to be able to speak the language of money. After all, money is a language like anything else, and the sooner you can join the conversation, the sooner you can live the life you want, RICH BITCH rehabs whatever bad habits you might have and provides a plan you can not only sustain, but thrive with. It's time to go after the rich life you deserve, and confident enough to call yourself a RICH BITCH.

Author: Lee Smolin
Publisher: Oxford University Press
Lee Smolin offers a new theory of the universe that is at once elegant, comprehensive, and radically different from anything proposed before. Smolin posits that a process of self organization like that of biological evolution shapes the universe, as it develops and eventually reproduces through black holes, each of which may result in a new big bang and a new universe. Natural selection may guide the appearance of the laws of physics, favoring those universes which best reproduce. The result would be a cosmology according to which life is a natural consequence of the fundamental principles on which the universe has been built, and a science that would give us a picture of the universe in which, as the author writes, "the occurrence of novelty, indeed the perpetual birth of novelty, can be understood." Smolin is one of the leading cosmologists at work today, and he writes with an expertise and force of argument that will command attention throughout the world of physics. But it is the humanity and sharp clarity of his prose that offers access for the layperson to the mind bending space at the forefront of today's physics.
Author: David Adam
Publisher: Church Publishing, Inc.
“As a youngster,” writes David Adam, “I always wanted to know more. I liked to climb the next hill and look around the next corner. My mother said I wanted to see the ‘back of beyond.’ I was never quite sure what she meant, but I was often aware of an otherness in the midst of what was plainly in view.” David Adam believes that the kingdom of God is all around us—in the beauty and power of nature; in work and leisure; in the love we experience and offer to others. This book suggests that as we develop an awareness of the presence of heaven in each and every day, we will come to trust that death itself is nothing to fear. Illustrated with simple line drawings, Living in Two Kingdoms contains many personal stories, anecdotes, prayers, and exercises. Both visionary and engagingly down to earth, Living in Two Kingdoms helps us to recognize that the visible world of matter and the invisible world of spirit are not two worlds but one. We can be sure that whatever harsh reality we may have to face from time to time, the true reality is that we are never on our own. Because here and now— whatever it may feel like—we are truly part of the kingdom of God.

Who You are and what You're Here to Do
Author: Karl Haffner
Publisher: Review and Herald Pub Assoc
uick, what did you have for dinner two months, three weeks, and six days ago? If you're a little fuzzy on the details, you're, well, normal. It's easy to forget something you're not continually thinking about. Out of sight, out of mind, right? Unfortunately, thinking primarily about what's in front of us, i.e., electronic gadgets, squabbling children, or the old woman in church who won't stop whispering to her friend during the service, blocks out some really important stuff. Take, for example, the weighty matters of personal identity, ultimate purpose, and eternal destination. Karl Haffner's wit and wisdom combine in this lightheartedly serious exploration of three questions to which our souls demand answers: Who am I? Why am I here? Where am I going? Living with the answers scribbled on 3 × 5 cards plastered before our eyeballs might reset our priorities for about 30 minutes. Maybe that's why God said something about inscribing His priorities on our hearts. Book jacket.

Adventures of an Eclectic Disc Jockey
Author: Studs Terkel
Publisher: New Press/ORIM
Category: Performing Arts
The Pulitzer Prize–winning historian talks with some of twentieth century’s most iconic musicians—“Riveting . . . Just about every interview has a revelation” (San Francisco Chronicle). Through the second half of the twentieth century, Studs Terkel hosted the legendary radio show “The Wax Museum,” presenting Chicago’s music fans with his inimitable take on music of all kinds, from classical, opera, and jazz to gospel, blues, folk, and rock. Featuring more than forty of Terkel’s conversations with some of the greatest musicians of the past century, And They All Sang is “a tribute to music’s universality and power” (Philadelphia Inquirer). Included here are fascinating conversations with Louis Armstrong, Leonard Bernstein, Big Bill Broonzy, Bob Dylan, Dizzy Gillespie, Mahalia Jackson, Janis Joplin, Rosa Raisa, Pete Seeger, and many others. As the esteemed music critic Anthony DeCurtis wrote in the Chicago Tribune, “the terms ‘interview’ or ‘oral history’ don’t begin to do justice to what Terkel achieves in these conversations, which are at once wildly ambitious and as casual as can be.” Whether discussing Enrico Caruso’s nervousness on stage with opera diva Edith Mason or the Beatles’ 1966 encounter in London with revered Indian sitar player Ravi Shankar, “Terkel’s singular gift for bringing his subjects to life in their own words should strike a chord with any music fan old enough to have replaced a worn-out record needle” (The New York Times). “Whether diva or dustbowl balladeer, Studs treats them all alike, with deep knowledge and an intimate, conversational approach . . . as this often remarkable book shows, Studs Terkel has remained mesmerized by great music throughout his life.” —The Guardian “[Terkel’s] expertise is evident on every page, whether debating the harmonic structure of the spirituals or discerning the subtleties of Keith Jarrett’s piano technique . . . As ever, he is the most skillful of interviewers.” —The Independent “What makes And They All Sang a rousing success isn’t just Terkel’s phenomenal range and broad knowledge, it’s his passionate love of the music and his deep humanity.” —San FranciscoChronicle
