Summary

A singular fatality has ruled the destiny of nearly all the most famous of Leonardo da Vinci's works. Two of the three most important were never completed, obstacles having arisen during his life-time, which obliged him to leave them unfinished; namely the Sforza Monument and the Wall-painting of the Battle of Anghiari, while the third—the picture of the Last Supper at Milan—has suffered irremediable injury from decay and the repeated restorations to which it was recklessly subjected during the XVIIth and XVIIIth centuries. Nevertheless, no other picture of the Renaissance has become so wellknown and popular through copies of every description.

    To someone on the outside it seems like some people just naturally win the lottery – by a stroke of circumstance, they are a money magnet.  
     In reality, even if money was handed to someone on a silver platter, they have to manage to keep it and allow more in. That has more to do with a strong money mindset than with being lucky.  
     After Cassie Parks realized she could change her money beliefs to become one of “those” people who easily make and keep money, she spent years figuring out exactly how to change her money mindset. Now that she has, her money mindset supports money coming into her life easily and sticking around for the party. Parks has spent the last two years teaching other people how to manifest more money into their lives –whether they were entrepreneurs, employees or unemployed. The step-by-step process Parks teaches is the basis of Manifest $10,000.  
     Directions to the intersection of abundance, mindset, ease, and grace is what you will find in Manifest $10,000. Using inspiring stories about people who have manifested more money into their lives, and providing instructions and analysis about why others haven’t been successful in the past, Parks will guide you through the process of learning to manifest $10,000 into your life in the next 90 days – in a way that feels simple and fun.

    “Without self-esteem, the only change is an exchange of masters; with it, there is no need for masters.” —Gloria Steinem  When trying to find books to give to “the countless brave and smart women I met who didn’t think of themselves as either brave or smart,” Gloria Steinem realized that books either supposed that external political change would cure everything or that internal change would. None linked internal and external change together in a seamless circle of cause and effect, effect and cause. She undertook to write such a book, and ended up transforming herself as well as others. The result of her external plus internal reflection is this bestselling and truly transforming book: part collection of personal stories from her own life and the lives of many others, part revolutionary guide to finding community and inspiration. Steinem finds role models in a very young and uncertain Gandhi as well as unlikely heroes from the streets to history. Revolution from Within addresses the core issues of self-authority and unjust external authority, and argues that the first is necessary to transform the second.
