The Strengths Book: Discover How to be Fulfilled in Your Work and in Life (Pre-Order)

It's human nature to focus more on our weaknesses because we are programmed to be alert to risks in our environment. We end up focusing on what isn't working, often overshadowing all the positives. But what if you focused on and played to your strengths instead? This practical and succinct book aims to revolutionise your life by helping you to identify what exactly makes you happy so that you will make the right choices; decide whether a job, activity or course is right for you; and understand why things seem to flow with some activities and some people, and not others. Knowing these things about yourself, and spending more time on what really energises and fulfills you - your strengths - will ultimately lead to a happier and more successful life.

The Mindfulness Book

Research has told us that to be successful in our personal and professional lives we need emotional intelligence; mindfulness is one practise to harness this ability and build your emotional capital. Mindfulness is an ancient Buddhist practice, which is very relevant for life today. Mindfulness is an integrative, mind-body based approach that helps people to manage their thoughts and feelings by paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgementally. This increases awareness, clarity and acceptance of our present-moment reality. This book reveals the seven dynamic emotions that create success, and provides a step-by-step guide for building emotional wealth and wellbeing.

The Financial Wellbeing Book

One of the biggest enemies of our general wellbeing is stress; and one of the biggest causes of stress is concern about money. This book provides a simple and practical guide to planning your daily and long-term finances by understanding your objectives and motivations. In doing so, it offers respite from the anxiety and stress caused by money problems. The author, an experienced financial adviser, argues that the key to financial wellbeing is to “know thyself” in order to allow decisions to be made, and to ensure those decisions are the rights ones for you. This is underpinned by having control of your daily finances, the ability to cope with a financial shock, to be able to have options in life, to have identifiable goals and a clear path to achieve them, and to ensure clarity and security for those we leave behind.
