The Slight Edge is a way of thinking, a way of processing information that enables you to make the daily choices that will lead you to the success and happiness you desire. Learn why some people make dream after dream come true, while others just continue dreaming and spend their lives building dreams for someone else. It’s not just another self-help motivation tool of methods you must learn in order to travel the path to success. It shows you how to create powerful results from the simple daily activities of your life, by using tools that are already within you.

In this 8th anniversary edition you’ll read not only the life-changing concepts of the original book, but also learn what author Jeff Olson discovered as he continued along the slight edge path: the Secret to Happiness and the Ripple Effect.

This edition of The Slight Edge isn’t just the story, but also how the story continues to create life-altering dynamics—how a way of thinking, a way of processing information, can impact daily choices that will lead you to the success and happiness you desire. The Slight Edge is “the key” that will make all the other how-to books and self-help information that you read, watch and hear actually work.

“Most people just laugh when they hear that the secret to success is giving. . . . Then again, most people are nowhere near as successful as they wish they were.”
The Go-Giver tells the story of an ambitious young man named Joe who yearns for success. Joe is a true go-getter, though sometimes he feels as if the harder and faster he works, the further away his goals seem to be. Desperate to land a key sale at the end of a bad quarter, he seeks advice from the enigmatic Pindar, a legendary consultant referred to by his many devotees sim­ply as the Chairman.
Over the next week, Pindar introduces Joe to a series of “go-givers”: a restaurateur, a CEO, a financial adviser, a real estate broker, and the “Connector” who brought them all together. Pindar’s friends teach Joe the Five Laws of Stratospheric Success and help him open himself up to the power of giving.
Joe learns that changing his focus from getting to giving—putting others’ interests first and continually adding value to their lives—ultimately leads to unexpected returns.
Imparted with wit and grace, The Go-Giver is a classic bestseller that brings to life the old proverb “Give and you shall receive.”
Nearly a decade since its original publication, the term “go-giver” has become shorthand for a defining set of values embraced by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Today this timeless story continues to help its readers find fulfillment and greater success in business, in their personal lives and in their communities.
This expanded edition includes the text of the original business parable, together with a foreword by Arianna Huffington, a new intro­duction, a discussion guide, and a Q&A with the authors.
 “I met last week with your leaders,” Ben began. “I heard what they had to say. And you know, they make a good point.” He paused. Take charge, Ben, he told himself. Take control. He looked around the conference room. Take, take, take. Was that really what he was here to do?
With their acclaimed bestseller The Go-Giver, Bob Burg and John David Mann proved that a heartfelt parable could also express a powerful idea. In The Go-Giver Leader (originally pub­lished as It’s Not About You), they offer an equally compelling tale about a struggling small business and the ambitious young executive trying to lead them to a crucial decision.
Allen & Augustine has manufactured high-quality chairs for decades. Its people take pride in their work and feel loyal to their owners and management team. But this revered company is now at a crossroads, hurt by a tough economy, foreign competition, and a cash crunch. The air is filled with the scent of uncertainty, anxiety, perhaps even panic.
Into this setting enters Ben, who’s been assigned by a larger firm to promote a merger that will rescue Allen & Augustine. Ben’s facts are undeniable: the chair maker can either merge and modernize or go bankrupt and vanish. So why can’t he persuade anyone to buy in, from the CEO on down?
Will Ben find a way to sway the employee shareholders before the climactic vote? And can Allen & Augustine survive without losing its soul? The answers may surprise you as you follow Ben on his journey to understanding that the path to genuine influence lies less in taking leadership than in giving it.
This revised and updated edition includes a new introduction, a discussion guide, and a Q&A with the authors.

Suntem făcuți să fim fericiți! Programul în patru pași pentru fericire de lungă durată

Cu toții am trăit, într-un moment sau altul al vieții noastre, un sentiment de fericire extatică, de euforie provocată de simpla senzație de a fi viu.

Te-ai întrebat vreodată de ce această stare este atât de rară și de efemeră?

Răspunsul este că nu trebuie să fie așa!

Toate afirmațiile, gândirea pozitivă, terapia prin dialog și produsele farmaceutice din lume nu vor fi de ajuns ca să ne facă fericiți așa cum am fost creați să fim, afirmă renumiții psihologi clinicieni dr. George Pratt și dr. Peter Lambrou. Asta deoarece abordările sus-menționate nu reușesc să valorifice un al treilea aspect al organismului uman, unul care construiește o punte peste golul dintre minte și corp: biocâmpul.

Combinând șase decenii de experiență clinică și cercetări de ultimă oră, autorii au dezvoltat un program revoluționar cu ajutorul căruia îți vei redescoperi fericirea înnăscută în patru pași simpli și demonstrați clinic.

Programul conceput de Pratt și Lambrou a schimbat deja viețile a peste 45 000 de clienți, printre care s-au numărat sportivi profesioniști, conducători ai unor firme de top și celebrități. Conținând toate instrumentele bazate pe știință și sfaturile necesare pentru a putea să devii mai concentrat, mai puternic și mai împlinit, Codul fericirii îți va schimba viața.

„Una dintre marile descoperiri ale secolului XX a fost conexiunea intimă dintre corp, minte și spirit. Doctorii Pratt și Lambrou au făcut o muncă de pionierat, transformând această descoperire în tehnici care funcționează. Dacă vreți să aveți parte de mai multă fericire și împlinire, citiți Codul fericirii. V-ar putea schimba viața.“ – Dr. Larry dossey, autorul cărților Puterea premonițiilor și Cuvinte tămăduitoare (Editura Lifestyle Publishing)
