How about the core values in your organization? Do they align? Good to the Core will take you on a journey to realize these core values, and understand how they are impacting your personal and business success. On the surface, the concept of values is easy to understand. Most of us want to be good to the core. But in practice, it is more challenging than it appears on the surface. How do you go about identifying the core values of your business?? How do these core values align with your own personal values? How do you reinforce those values across the entire organization? How do you integrate them into the fabric of your life, and the culture of your business? Good to the Core is a great book for everyone in your organization to read…and re-read, because without core values, and your commitment to reinforce those values, there can be no long-term success…in business or in life. Each chapter has a “Core Challenge” for you to work on personally or as a team. Go at your own pace – take on a chapter or two a week or use at your next corporate leadership retreat. This book is also a great resource for trainers and leaders in your organization. So many times, it’s not what you say, but how you say it that turns the switch from “off” to “on.” In Good to the Core, author John Blumberg has nailed this all important topic of “building value with values.” And, if there was ever a time in the history of this great country that we need to re-visit our core values...the time is now.

By John C. Maxwell Format: Hardcover Pages: 116 Dimensions: 170 mm x 170 mm Fastest delivery time: 1 to 2 days "It’s never too late to be what you might have been." – George Eliot All of us have a vision of what we want our life to be, but few of us know how to actually make those dreams a reality. Luckily, John C. Maxwell shares his forty years of expertise in his book Own Your Dreams. John lays out the most common roadblocks people encounter in achieving their dreams and then shows you how to clarify and build your dreams for the future. I’ve known hundreds of high-profile people who achieved big dreams. And I’ve achieved a few dreams of my own. What I’ve discovered is that a lot of people have misconceptions about dreams. A genuine dream is a picture and blueprint of a person’s purpose and potential. Or as my friend Sharon Hull says, “A dream is the seed of possibility planted in the soul of a human being, which calls him to pursue a unique path to the realization of his purpose.“ Sadly, far too many people have dreams that are not genuine, but simply wishful thinking that fills their thoughts but will never fulfill their lives. As an internationally recognized leadership expert, speaker, and author who has sold more than sixteen million books, John has spent the last forty years studying successful people. In Own Your Dreams, he will show you how to secure your dreams and overcome the most common roadblocks to making your dreams a reality. John C. Maxwell’s step-by-step action plan asks straightforward questions, and provides a guide to help you create the right answers and to make good decisions along the way. In fact, here’s a snapshot of what to expect: Part I: What Is Your Dream? Five Common Roadblocks Preparing Your Dream Owning Your Dream Part II: How Will You Achieve It?

As a junior tennis player competing throughout the United States from ages 7-18, he became fascinated with what it takes to become a champion. His dream was to be ranked among the Top 10 players in the world, but he ended up falling short. At his best, he hovered around the Top 500 in the world, and that’s as high as he could seem to reach. Deep down, Steve knew he had the talent to make his dream a reality, and he knew the missing link was mental. After hanging up his racquet for the last time, Steve became obsessed with uncovering the mental toughness secrets of champions. Starting in 1984, Steve spent every free moment conducting interviews with champions, reading their books and studying everything he could get his hands on about the psychology of peak performance. Steve’s friends said he was obsessed. They were right. This book,Secrets of the World Class, is the result of his 20-year obsession. Secrets of the World Class contains no theories. Every secret comes straight from the street of experience, either Steve’s own or that of his clients. This book is loaded with ideas you can implement immediately.

Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.” ~ Nido Qubein Every once in awhile, you meet someone whose perspective changes yours…whose way of looking at the world challenges you to be a better person. Dr. Nido Qubein is one of those people. His personal story is an inspiration in itself. He arrived in this country as a teenage immigrant with little knowledge of English and 50 dollars in his pocket. But, what he did have was a belief that if you work hard enough and smart enough, you can make good things happen in your life. And that’s exactly what he did. Now the president of High Point University in High Point, North Carolina, Dr. Qubein is also Chairman of Great Harvest Bread Company and director of several New York Stock Exchange companies. He’s been an entrepreneur, consultant, author and one of the most sought-after speakers in the country. In his latest book, Seven Choices for Success and Significance, Dr. Qubein shares his insights on the choices he made for success. “Success is not a matter of luck, not an accident of birth, not a reward for virtue. The most successful people I know are the ones who have something to do, somewhere to be and someone to love. No one is responsible for your success or your joy. You must search for it and be in a continual state of earning it. To merely succeed is not an end in itself. You must use your success to impact other people…to impact the world…to live life from the inside out. It all starts with the choices you make—they determine the person you will become.” ~ An excerpt from Seven Choices for Success and Significance. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from someone who not only has set a standard for achievement, but who does so in a way which gives back to others. Seven Choices for Success and Significance will give you the tools you need to choose both success and significance in your own life. So today is the day to start living the life of your dreams. It all starts with the right choices, because the choices you make define the person you become.

It's the only book of its kind in the Simple Truths library and you will come away with solid steps on how to move ahead in your career goals after reading John's book. What Are You Doing with Your 24 Hours Today? How often do you hear people use time as an excuse to not get something done? We hear it quite frequently. In fact, it is one of the most common excuses (inputs) that limit successful outputs. If we don't take time for what really matters, we cannot possibly expect an improvement in results. As Albert Einstein once noted, insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. The real key then is not the amount of time we have. We all have 24 hours in a day. It is how we prioritize our activities and use the time we have. The reality is it's time to Step Up or step aside. So many times I’ve said, “It’s not what you say, but how you say it that turns the switch from off to on." John’s writing style is clear, concise and engaging. He asks questions to make you think and makes his point in a way that makes the reader say, “Wow. I never thought of it quite that way!” If you’re totally pleased with the success you’ve had in your career and in life, you can stop reading now. If, however, you’d like to step up and tap into your true potential, John's latest book, Stepping Up…10 Takeaways for Advancing Your Career, is for you.
