    We are not leaders having a leadership crisis. We are leaders having a human being crisis.Connection is the antidote—yet, many of us don't know how to connect to ourselves compassionately in order to enhance self-discovery. Without this gift, we cannot connect—in a meaningful way—to a higher purpose or engage with others to ignite inspiration.With the help of Hardwick's connection architecture, we can transform. By utilizing her strategies of connection, we can empower workplaces and relationships through the grace and grit, resilience and empathy that occur when our connection wiring is activated in healthy ways.Hardwick's willingness to share her story of struggle and triumph—along with anecdotes from the boardroom and family room—help us to awaken, heal, and courageously lead. She synthesizes the emotional, spiritual, and relational, giving us permission to look honestly at how we do damage to ourselves and others while inviting us to live and lead from a place of true well-being.

    Are you feeling blindsided by midlife? 
    You’re not alone and you’re not crazy. Our current culture tells us that midlife (ages 40-65) is a time of unraveling, chaos, and uncertainty for women. This doesn’t have to be true.  
    	MIDLIFE IS AN OPPORTUNITY, NOT A CRISIS 
    Our bodies, minds, and lives are changing. Many of us feel off balance, wondering if this is all there is?  
    Some of us feel completely unprepared. No one told us what to expect, or that midlife is a magical and transformative time of renewal that is just the beginning, not the end. 
    In Piloting Your Life, diverse women from around the world share their personal stories of learning, growing, and thriving through midlife to inspire you to explore and experiment. 
    Terri Hanson Mead candidly shares her extensive research on happiness, sex, friendship, money, and health to help you discover and live your life.  
    It’s time to throw off the chains of embarrassment and shatter the stereotypes for women in midlife.   
    Disengage autopilot, take the controls, and be the pilot in your own life.

    Summary, Analysis, and Review of Pema Chodron's When Things Fall Apart PLEASE NOTE: This is a key takeaways and analysis of the book and NOT the original book. Start Publishing Notes' Summary, Analysis, and Review of Pema Chodron's When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times includes a summary of the book, review, analysis & key takeaways, and detailed About the Author section. PREVIEW: After a year-long sabbatical in 1995, Pema Chodron, an American Buddhist nun, realized that the way to overcome fear, pain, loss, and anxiety is to confront those negative emotions in order to transform one's suffering and negative patterns in life in order to obtain a life of joy rather than one of hardship. In When Things Fall Apart Chodron sees two overarching themes: a need for maitri (loving-kindness towards oneself) and how practicing maitri develops a more compassionate attitude towards our own and others' struggles; and a dissolving of dualistic tensions (us and them) by inviting in what we usually

    Every person spends a lot of time of life at the house. Home holds a lot of importance for a person. Most of the memories are created while being at home as the family also resides in it. Because of all these reasons and many more, the organization of a house becomes much more vital. The organization of a house is not only related to the mental well-being of a person but also to the physical well-being. This is because the mental peace of a person would ultimately affect the physical activities also. Organizing a house is a task that must be divided among all the members of the family or people living in the house so that it does not become burdensome. Along with all this, it is important to keep some crucial points in mind while organizing a house such as keeping all the things in the appropriate reach of each and every person.

    Have you just tried yet another diet which didn't produce the desired results? No diet in the world will help you unless things click in your mind. The success of every diet is completely dependent on the right mindset. Weight problems are closely associated with our subconscious. People who take too little time for their own needs also take less time for their diet.Hypnosis provides a wonderful opportunity to anchor crucial impulses in your mind to ensure you lose weight easily. It specifically "programs" the subconscious to follow a healthy diet permanently. Hunger for too much food or unhealthy food vanishes and feeding becomes a more conscious act again. This home-based application incorporates all currently known mind power techniques and autosuggestion options required to ensure successful weight loss. Developed by hypnosis specialists in collaboration with bestselling author Patrick Lynen, this hypnosis method creates a long-lasting effect as it cleverly bypasses our critical minds. During the session, you will receive subliminal information to help you form new healthy habits and beliefs. The featured techniques:•Deep hypnosis•Autosuggestion•Multi-sensory programming•Delta wave audio processingThis tried-and-tested program starts right where cravings and appetites for fattening foods and drinks originate: Comfort food. Hypnosis can have a positive effect on your eating habits, the sensation of hunger, but also on the triggers for comfort eating. With the help of this self-hypnosis, you will continue to lose the pounds in a healthy way until you reach your desired weight.You should listen to the program once a day for at least 21 consecutive days to ensure the best possible effect.
