    How to Build the Habits of Perseverance and Keep Going When You Want to Give Up to Achieve Your Goals? 
    This book is for anyone who wants to develop grit. Whether you are a student who wants to do better at school, someone who wants to start a healthy lifestyle, or a professional who wishes to grow in his career or business, you will find the tips and strategies in these chapters to really help you have the grit to go for your goals. 
    However, I have not written this book to remind you of your glaring deficiencies. I believe you must at least have suspected that you were a little bit lacking in grit before picking up this book. First, we start by trying to find out what perseverance is. Once we have found it, I will show the pillars upon which perseverance rests on. Yes, perseverance has certain pillars it rests upon. Then, I will show you how you can remain determined and motivated at all times. 
    I do sincerely hope that at the end of this book, you would have realized the power and necessity of remaining steadfast, motivated and unshakable in your pursuits of your goals. To achieve that though, you will need to read every line with total concentration and focus on applying the secrets of perseverance to your life.

    Stepping Up - How Taking...

    “Gives you the key to unlocking your full potential for greater success, achievement, and personal power in every area of your life.” —Brian Tracy, New York Times-bestselling author of Eat That Frog!   All too often, the challenges we face seem overwhelming. Where do we start? What if we fail? But bestselling author John Izzo argues that almost every problem, from personal difficulties and business challenges to social issues, can be solved if all of us look to ourselves to create change rather than looking to others. And with the research to prove it, Izzo shows that by seeing ourselves as the locus of control rather than the victims of change, we are happier, less stressed, and more powerful.   Izzo shows how taking responsibility changes our careers, our companies, our lives, and our communities. This book is filled with stories that illustrate the incredible power of stepping up: a homeless man who started a recycling revolution, a middle-aged Italian shopkeeper who fought back against the Mafia, two teenagers who ignited an antibullying movement, an executive who turned a dying division into a profit center, and a few employees who created a multibillion-dollar product for Starbucks, and many more. This second edition includes a new chapter on the Stepping Up Continuum, a model that looks at six ways to know if you are stepping up or stepping back, as well as fresh stories and a self-assessment tool for helping leaders create a culture for stepping up in their organizations. We have the power within ourselves to move mountains—we just have to decide that we are the ones to do it.  “Insightful and inspired!” —Marshall Goldsmith, #1 New York Times-bestselling author

    Acclaimed BBC anchor Mishal Husain inspires, champions, and encourages women to make their ambitions a reality by focusing on practical skills they can use throughout their careers, whether they are new graduates, working mothers, reentering the workforce, or simply seeking a career change.When women are offered new opportunities, they often hesitate because of doubt — doubt that they are good enough or have the abilities to succeed. Mishal Husain has reached the pinnacle of her field, yet the British news presenter almost didn’t take her dream job because of doubt, and it took three years before she felt truly comfortable in her position. While men focus on advancement, women feel pressured to prove themselves. “It is clear that we need some better ideas about how more women can advance to levels comparable with men”, Husain writes. The Skills offers insight, practical knowledge, and encouragement to help women thrive.Husain begins with a frank overview of where women are socially and professionally today and identifies the factors that influence how others perceive us — and how we think about ourselves. Drawing on her own experience and knowledge, along with interviews with experts and inspirational figures from Martha Lane Fox to Malala Yousafzai, The Skills explains:How to present yourself to maximum effect, in person and onlineHow to prepare for big moments and plan for long-term goalsHow to gain confidence and authorityHow to use your voice and body language effectivelyHow to navigate the ups and downs of a long working life, from engineering quick wins to building resilienceWise, down-to-earth, and filled with vital advice, The Skills guides women in honing the abilities they need to thrive in whatever field they choose.

    Founder vs Investor - The Honest...

    A no-holds-barred look into the minds, motivations, and machinations of how investors and founders team up to build a successful startup, debated in a brazenly honest way by two of the best in the business.?  
    People imagine that the best way for founders to build billion-dollar startups is to team up with venture capitalists. The founder brings the vision and drive, the investor brings the money and years of experience, and both benefit from each other’s expertise. 
    This is a mirage, and one that both founders and investors unconsciously create to avoid some hard truths. It starts from a good place—the desire for success is the same—and yet the journey is long, and motivations are wildly different. So different, in fact, that even their respective definitions of success wildly diverge. The result is that they often find themselves at odds while simultaneously believing the other just doesn’t get it. Misunderstanding, mistrust, boardroom drama, fired founders, and failed companies are the result. 
    For the partnership to work as smoothly as possible (which may not be so smoothly), they need to understand what is going on in the other’s head. Why does the founder respond so badly when the investor pushes to grow faster? Why doesn’t the investor want to sell the company for a seemingly great return? What are the motivations behind their behavior? 
    Founder Elizabeth Zalman and investor Jerry Neumann lay bare these insider motivations, based on decades of experience, inhabiting their roles in this one-of-a-kind book. Zalman and Neumann square off, providing a brazenly honest debate on how startups are built, broken, and fought over throughout a company’s lifecycle:Building relationshipsRaising moneyScaling the businessWorking together on the board of directorsExiting the business
