The honest truth about influence: what it is, how it works and how you can do it better.
Your ability to influence can spell the difference between success and failure in business: with it you can get things done, spark change and transform results as you gently persuade, convince and motivate others to get that ‘yes’.
But understanding exactly what influential people do and the effect it has, remains a mystery to most of us – not any more.
Influence combines the latest research in neuroscience and emotional intelligence with clever, practical and highly effective techniques to take your influencing skills to an impressive new level.
Effectively influence any personality you encounter – in any situation
Learn to properly listen, understand, and ask the right questions
Speak persuasively and compellingly as you learn the real language of influence
Be more productive, more efficient and get better results
Expertly handle high-pressure situations and challenging people
Influence is the silent skill that, when mastered, promises you powerful results.

Banish Your Inner Critic: Silence the Voice of Self-Doubt to Unleash Your Creativity and Do Your Best Work by Denise Jacobs

While it’s easy to believe that the main barriers to being more productive, generating and developing ideas, and doing our best work are external (how many times have you vented to a coworker about „hitting a wall?“), the truth is that these frustrating blocks are most often in our own heads. What is the entity responsible for this? The Inner Critic.
The Inner Critic is relentless, driving us toward perfectionism and fanning the flames of self doubt, self-sabotage, and self criticism while dousing the sparks of creative ideas before they have a chance to develop. It encourages rationalization to help us feel better about snuffing out these sparks and keeps us believing that it’s saving us from rejection, judgment, and failure. Worst of all, it makes us think all of this is our own idea.
How do we break free of something that feels like it’s a natural part of who we are?
Denise Jacobs, Speaker, Author and Chief Creativity Evangelist of The Creative Dose, who speaks at web conferences and consults with tech companies worldwide, maps a way out in her latest work, Banish Your Inner Critic. This book is your manual and toolkit to help you not only reclaim your creativity and productivity, but bump it up to extreme productivity, clearing a path for you to find your zone more often – and stay in it longer.
Jacobs‘ guidebook will provide instant relief and lasting insight, showing you how to:
Identify and quiet the voice of self-sabotage in your head
Master three power practices to transform how you relate to yourself and your creativity forever
Overcome the fear of not knowing enough or not being original enough
Free yourself from comparisons, overwhelm, and self-criticism
Transform your self-talk into a tool for success
Generate more ideas than ever before
Embrace your expertise and share your brilliance with the world
Calling on neuroscience, psychology, mindfulness principles, and self-compassion research, deftly blended with personal storytelling, Jacobs presents approachable and immediately applicable techniques for putting your Inner Critic in its place. Banish Your Inner Critic will help you make your creative process more fluid and develop practices to cultivate innovation. When your next creative idea sparks into being, you will be ready to nurture it into a dazzling light of success.
Banish your Inner Critic to start doing your best work, achieving excellence, and contributing meaningfully to the world!

Wilfrid Sellars, Idealism, and Realism: Understanding Psychological Nominalism edited by Patrick J. Reider

English | November 17, 2016 | ISBN: 1474238939 | EPUB | 208 pages | 0.6 MB

Wilfrid Sellars, Idealism, and Realism is the first study of its kind to address a range of realist and idealist views inspired by psychological nominalism. Bringing together premier analytic realists and distinguished defenders of German idealism, it reveals why psychological nominalism is one of the most important theories of the mind to come out the 20th century.
The theory, first put forward by Wilfrid Sellars, argues that language is the only means by which humans can learn the types of socially shared practices that permit rationality. Although wedded to important aspects of German idealism, Sellars‘ theory is couched in bold realist terms of the analytic tradition. Those who are sympathetic to German idealism find this realist’s appropriation of German idealism problematic. Wilfrid Sellars, Idealism and Realism thus creates a rare venue for realists and idealists to debate the epistemic outcome of the mental processes they both claim are essential to experience. Their resulting discussion bridges the gap between analytic and continental philosophy.
In providing original and accessible chapters on psychological nominalism, this volume raises themes that intersect with numerous disciplines: the philosophy of mind, philosophy of language, epistemology, and metaphysics. It also provides clarity on arguably the best available account of why humans can reason, be self-aware, know, and act as agents.

The Food Addiction Recovery Workbook: How to Manage Cravings, Reduce Stress, and Stop Hating Your Body by Carolyn Coker Ross

Isn’t it time you got off the diet treadmill? In The Food Addiction Recovery Workbook, physician Carolyn Coker Ross offers the proven-effective Anchor Program to help you curb cravings, end body dissatisfaction, manage stress and emotions without food, and truly satisfy your soul.
When it comes to addiction, abstinence isn’t always the answer—and with food addiction, this is especially true. And yet, for decades nutritional experts have dissected the problem of obesity, and the result has been a series of recommendations about what and how much to eat. When “eating too much fat” was thought to cause obesity, grocery store shelves exploded with low-fat products. Next came the low carb craze that led us to fear eating all carbohydrates, and with it came another assortment of fad products and diets. This pattern has repeated numerous times—and it never seems to be helpful!
If you’re struggling with obesity or food addiction, you’ve probably been told that you must deprive yourself of certain foods in order to lose weight. You may have also been convinced—by the media and by our culture—that if you finally become thin your life will be better, you’ll be happier, and your suffering will come to an end. The problem is—it’s not all about the food. It’s about how food is used to self-soothe, to numb ourselves against the pain of living or to cope with stress and unresolved emotions. Even as your waist whittles away, the problems that caused your food addiction won’t disappear.
The Anchor Program approach detailed in this workbook is not about dieting. It’s about being anchored to your true, authentic self. When you find your unique anchor, you will relate better to your body, you will know intuitively how to feed your body, and you will reach the weight that’s right for you. Anyone who’s been on the diet treadmill—losing and regaining lost weight—will admit that losing weight doesn’t instantly bring health or happiness. That’s because losing weight is a red herring for the real issue, the misuse of food to solve a problem that has nothing to do with food.
