Summary

Verbal Judo is the martial art of the mind and mouth that can show you how to be better prepared in every verbal encounter. Listen and speak more effectively, engage people through empathy (the most powerful word in the English language), avoid the most common conversational disasters, and use proven strategies that allow you to successfully communicate your point of view and take the upper hand in most disputes. 
Verbal Judo offers a creative look at conflict that will help you defuse confrontations and generate cooperation from your spouse, your boss, and even your teenager. As the author says, "when you react, the event controls you. When you respond, you’re in control." 
This new edition features a fresh new cover and a foreword demonstrating the legacy of Verbal Judo founder and author George Thompson, as well as a never-before-published final chapter presenting Thompson’s "Five Universal Truths" of human interaction.

    The essential guide to kaizen—the art of making great and lasting change through small, steady steps—is now repackaged as an impulse paperback with a dazzling new cover that speaks to its proper positioning as a self-help/inspiration title that’s applicable to business as well.  Written by Dr. Robert Maurer, a psychologist on the staff of both the University of Washington School of Medicine and Santa Monica UCLA Medical Center, and an expert on kaizen who speaks and consults nationally, One Small Step Can Change Your Life is the gentle but potent way to effect change. It is for anyone who wants to lose weight. Or quit smoking. Or write a novel, start an exercise program, get out of debt, or conquer shyness and meet new people.  Beginning by outlining the all-important role that fear plays in every type of change—and kaizen’s ability to neutralize it by circumventing the brain’s built-in resistance to new behavior—Dr. Maurer then explains the 7 Small Steps: how to Think Small Thoughts, Take Small Actions, Solve Small Problems, and more. He shows how to perform mind sculpture—visualizing virtual change so that real change comes more naturally. Why small rewards lead to big returns by internalizing motivation. How great discoveries are made by paying attention to the little details most of us overlook. Rooted in the two-thousand-year-old wisdom of the Tao Te Ching—“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”—here is the way to change your life without fear, without failure, and to begin a new, easy regimen of continuous improvement.

    What a difference allowing makes... 
    If you haven't yet attained the level of abundance you desire, there's a good chance that you have been blocking it. Maybe you've tried dozens of manifestation techniques before, such as visualization, affirmations, and vision boards. Yet, the abundance you desire still eludes you. 
    Most of the time when abundance isn't flowing, it's because you haven't yet learned how to allow it. Allowing abundance simply means that your thoughts, beliefs, feelings and expectations are aligned with the essence of abundance so it flows easily to you. 
    This book shares some very simple things you can do each day that will help you shift into a state of allowing so that you quickly feel and see a difference in your life. In many ways, the universe functions like a big mirror, reflecting on the outside whatever is happening within you. If you want to change the outer circumstances of your life, you need to first change your inner state. 
    When you start shifting your thoughts, feelings, beliefs and expectations, everything that has been eluding you suddenly starts showing up. Opportunities, money, resources, people, and ideas that were previously unavailable to you are suddenly popping up everywhere you turn. 
    This is the beauty of learning how to allow. 
    In How to Allow Abundance, you will learn: 
    - How scarcity gets created. 
    - How to start appreciating abundance and why it's important to do so. 
    - How to clear negative money "triggers" that keep setting you back. 
    - How to FEEL your way to a greater state of abundance. 
    - How to change the limiting beliefs that keep abundance away. 
    - Effective ways to handle daily negativity in your life. 
    - How to use the power of gratitude to manifest more abundance. 
    - Why you need to make peace with debt, and how to do it. 
    - How to start using the magnetic power of thoughts to change your life. 
    - Why you need to rewrite your life stories and how to do it. 
    - Fun ways to use the power of spending to allow more abundance. 
    - How to create an abundant self-image and why it's important to do so. 
    - Physical habits that can block abundance. 
    - How to create endless "gateways" for abundance to enter your life. 
    - How to discover your life purpose and use it as a vehicle for abundance. 
    - How to work in partnership with the universe to manifest abundance. 
    - How to use the power of giving to allow a constant flow of abundance. 
    - And much more. 
     
    How to Allow Abundance is presented in a weekly lesson format that includes fun exercises and activities that will help you dissolve resistance, develop strong abundance-friendly beliefs, and change the way you think about money. 
    In just minutes a day, you can dramatically change your relationship with abundance and start allowing an easier flow of everything good you desire. You will know the importance of allowing abundance rather than straining or struggling for it like you may have done in the past. Allowing is a much gentler, easier way of manifesting your goals and dreams, and this book will walk you through the process step-by-step.
