Summary

Jeff Goins, a brilliant new voice counting Seth Godin and Jon Acuff among his fans, explains how to abandon the status quo and live a life that matters with true passion and purpose. The path to your life’s work is difficult and risky, even scary, which is why few finish the journey. This is a book about discovering your life’s work, that treasure of immeasurable worth we all long for. It’s about the task you were born to do.      As Jeff Goins explains, the search begins with passion but does not end there. Only when our interests connect with the needs of the world do we begin living for a larger purpose. Those who experience this intersection experience something exceptional and enviable. Though it is rare, such a life is attainable by anyone brave enough to try.  Through personal experience, compelling case studies, and current research on the mysteries of motivation and talent, Jeff shows readers how to find their vocation and what to expect along the way.

    After two decades of research on founders, a best-selling book on the subject, and experience teaching and mentoring thousands of students in this field, Noam Wasserman is a prominent authority on startups. Hearing from countless readers and students that his insights helped them with important life decisions, beyond the incubator and boardroom, Wasserman brings us a new book that applies to everyday life his research on the methods of successful startup founders.
     
    Like entrepreneurs, we all deal with uncertainty, tough decision-making, and necessary problem-solving. Whether we freelance or work for large organizations, whether we're married or single, have kids or not, we must be able to think on our feet, assess risks and opportunities, and recruit others to help us navigate them. This book offers important advice for envisioning change in our lives—from contemplating the next step in a relationship to making a radical career move—and managing changes to which we've already committed. We can learn to recognize our own well-worn patterns and keep our tendencies and habits in check, recruit a personal taskforce—our own board of directors—to advise us, and plan ahead for growth. With his extensive database of entrepreneurship case studies—from Pandora to Twitter to Nike—complemented with data on 20,000 founders, Wasserman is able to go deeply into the entrepreneurial mindset and show us how startups provide specific lessons for crafting our most successful lives.

    AN INTRODUCTION TO MINDSET STACKING(TM) TECHNIQUES
    You're Already Wired for Exceptional SuccessBUT: Those same programs also have given you your greatest failures.
    If you've ever had a complete melt-down, a real failure of your mindset, where the world has seemingly gone to hell and stayed there, you're not alone.
    it's just sad to tell you that it's your own damned fault.
    What makes it worse is to find out that all you need to succeed was already programmed into you – and has been since you were born.
    Then how did you get into that mess?
    By believing what people told you
    as you were raised,
    and in every school you went to,
    all your on the job training,
    every movie you ever saw,
    or song you ever heard.
    All those lessons and examples just helped you believe in something other than your own ability to become great.
    Most of what we are told these days are that the environment makes the individual. However, this has only really been taught since just after World War II. Long, long before that, there were many schools of thought which held that the individual creates their own success in this world, or lack of it.
    And that is a far longer tradition, across our 10,000 years of culture, back through our verbal traditions and storytellers.
    Some of our oldest traditions, such as the Tibetan Book of the Dead, say that as children we have complete access to all the world's knowledge – up to the point we learn to talk. And other traditions say that we can each still tap into unlimited knowledge. Some studies begun in the 1950's and verified through testing, have shown this to still be true.
    Unfortunately, this isn't what Conventional Wisdom says. Most Science disagrees. And it isn't what any government or school wants you to believe. All the best authorities...
    However, one of the oldest phrases, published in books in various formats throughout all of our recorded works, says the same thing in various ways:
    We Become What We Think About.
    What you think and how you think is up to you. How you think consistently, the mental habits you've developed, are those you chose for yourself.
    If you build those mental habits stacked on top of unproved, untested data, then you risk your sanity because you listened to all these sources and chose to think that way.
    The economic crash of 2008 affected a lot of people adversely. But a lot more people survived.
    The U.S. election of 2016 affected a lot of people adversely. But a lot more people survived.
    There will always be more adverse situations ahead. Because that's the cyclical history of this mudball we live on.
    But you don't have to repeat these failures, these crashes.
    And now, this story is complete.
    This collection of 7 books now answers all the questions and takes you right back to the beginning to learn even more. Because this subject is as deep as you want to take it. You are referenced to current newsmakers as examples as well as principles back before our 10,000 years of history started.
    This is a landmark volume you'll want as a reference, along with its sister handbook, The Strangest Secret Library. And your life is guaranteed to never be the same...

    ‘This is The Good Life meets A Year in Provence’. Sue Collins, The Nualas 
    ‘A luminous, funny and profound reading experience.’ Sebastian Barry  
    First, a dream of escaping the city… and then a century-old cottage to match the dream. Moving to a small village in the heart of the countryside was the beginning of a new life for Philip Judge and his Beloved – the beginning of life In Sight of Yellow Mountain.  
    Judge describes the season-by-season charms and frustrations that he, his Beloved, and eventually, his two growing boys experience as they adapt to life in the countryside. 
    There are highs and lows. Wellies and tweeds are bought. Vegetable patches cultivated. Lambs are born, calves die. There is weather: good and bad; health and happiness; illness and sadness. The city slicker fails miserably at Name That Grain! and makes many faux pas along the way, but ultimately, this is the story of one man, and his growing family, experiencing the pleasure that is finding home.
