Summary

Do you have problems remembering birthdays and anniversaries, appointments and errands? 
Do you sometimes find yourself in a room, and wonder why you're there? 
Do you end up doing things twice because you've forgotten you've already done them? 
Of all the memory failures that plague us, forgetting our intentions -- birthdays, appointments, errands we mean to do -- is the greatest, closely followed by those moments of absentmindedness when we lose track of what we're doing. 
The special problem of these common memory failures is that they are failures that are often very obvious to others. More than any other memory failure, forgetting the future makes others feel hurt and annoyed, causing us regret and embarrassment. And absentmindedness can not simply be irritating, but dangerous. 
Many people think that these sorts of problems are inevitable -- a natural consequence of getting older, or going through menopause, or because of some 'natural' personality flaw. But remembering future events, and remembering what you're doing or have just done, are memory tasks that, like any other memory task, are subject to your skills. Skills can be learned. 
To learn or improve a skill, you need to know effective strategies and how to practice them. This book helps you understand these memory and attention failures, and shows you how to overcome them. 
As always with the Mempowered books, this fully referenced book, based on the work of cognitive researchers, helps you permanently improve your memory skills by explaining what you need to know to use these strategies effectively and appropriately.

    One of today’s most successful entrepreneurs shares his story “of inspiration and information [that] will inspire you to push yourself to the next level” (Stedman Graham, businessman, speaker, and author of Identity Leadership).   Terry Giles, “the man behind the scenes who litigated—and sometimes mitigated—some of the most sensationally nasty celebrity and political dramas of the last several decades” (The Texas Tribune), attributes his own success to being part of “the fifteen percent” of people who are able to rise above despair and succeed against all odds. Using examples from his career and life—defending child sex abuse victims, his involvement in Monica Lewinsky’s trial, and even managing Dr. Ben Carson’s 2016 presidential campaign—he illustrates these ideas in action. In each chapter, you’ll learn valuable skills, including fearlessness, embracing underdog status, visualizing the future, and positive thinking—and proving that you do not have to be a victim of bad circumstances to adopt the superpowers of “the fifteen percent.”   Entertaining, inspiring, and full of useful insights, The Fifteen Percent will help you overcome whatever’s holding you back, so you can achieve lasting success.   “A tour de force that encapsulates a lifetime of wisdom and service that exemplifies what it is to truly live the American Dream . . . a surefire recipe for outlandish success—I know; because I have been blessed to count Terry among my closest mentors and friends for over thirty years.” —Armstrong Williams, broadcast entrepreneur and syndicated columnist   “A powerful and balanced account of his personal and professional journeys . . . it truly exemplifies his vision, courage, kindness, humility, and old-fashioned grit.” —Robert J. Brown, author of You Can’t Go Wrong Doing Right

    New York Times number–one bestselling author Debbie Ford presents revolutionary questions that, when answered with complete honesty, change the way we see ourselves and make decisions – ultimately moving us toward the life we desire.   
     The realities of the life we live today are a result of the choices we made yesterday, three months ago and three years ago. But we don't wind up $50,000 dollars in debt because of one extravagant purchase. Nor do we put on 30 unwanted pounds as a result of a couple of decadent meals. And our relationships certainly don't fall apart overnight because of one decision. We are where we are because of repeated unconscious choices made day after day. If we want to understand why and how we created our present day reality, all we need to do is look at the choices we made in the past. Ford cuts right through our denial with the 10 questions that immediately reveal the true motivations behind our thoughts and actions. But more than that, by rigorously and honestly asking and answering these 10 vital questions, we regain control and have the power necessary to create the life we always wanted.
