    This introductory guide reveals the ancient philosophical and spiritual wisdom of the Chinese Zodiac.   One of the oldest forms of spiritual wisdom, Chinese astrology remains one of the most popular and powerful zodiac systems. Following a twelve-part cycle of years represented by different animals, the system is further divided by month, day, and hour of birth—revealing one’s inner, true, and secret animals. Focusing more on the person than on events, it offers more philosophical and introspective insights than its western counterpart.    This introductory guide covers the basic concepts and principles of Chinese astrology, as well as its history and origins. It also features detailed synopses of personality traits associated with each sign, as well as traditional Chinese artwork.

    When Jon Acuff's book Soundtracks, came out, one reaction surprised him. Parents across the country all said the same thing: "Do you have a version for teenagers? If I knew how to change my mindset when I was that age, my entire life would have been different." Why did they say that? Because truth grows like compound interest. Saving money when you're young has a bigger impact than it does when you save in your 40s. A single new soundtrack--Acuff's phrase for a repetitive thought--believed when you're 14 or 18 can change your whole life in the same way. In response, Acuff tagged his two daughters to help him create an honest, actionable guide to mindset for teenagers.  
     
    Your thoughts can work for you or against you, but the good news is you get a choice. The even better news is when you're young, your entire world is made of new. You're a movie that's barely started, a notebook with blank pages to fill, a song that hasn't hit the chorus. You have your whole life ahead of you. When you learn to create new thoughts, those thoughts lead to actions, and those actions lead to new results. Are you ready to tap into the superpower of mindset? Just hit play.
