Stop Stabbing Yourself in the Back

Self-Sabotage impacts everyone at some time. It doesn’t matter if you are the most successful and confident person today. There are times–hours, days, weeks, months, even years–when forces come together and create havoc in your life. By recognizing your own traps and self-sabotaging techniques and behaviors, you can create the right antidote to counteract and Zap self-sabotaging traits and behaviors. Self-sabotage includes berating yourself when things go wrong, blaming others, making excuses, not negotiating for your own best interest, fear of confronting others, putting things off, being too-too loyal, avoiding tasks due to fear of failing, getting even, having a bloated ego and having a lousy attitude. Whatever your inner snares are, Dr. Judith Briles has identified 21 ways that you may undermine yourself . . .and supplied viable solutions to each. Each chapter is self-contained. If confronting is a problem, read the specific chapter; if not knowing how to negotiate, read its chapter; and if lack of confidence is the straw that breaks your back, there’s a chapter just for you. 21 solutions to 21 self-sabotaging behaviors.

Have You Ever Held a Mountain?

Mountains have been symbolic since the beginning of time. Our imagination has always given life to their presence. We name them, even feature them in our history and our lives. John Maling has created a poem about and around the life of a mountain that touches the very life that bursts from its core to the inhabitants and majestic surroundings. Each line resonates with the spectacular photography taken by Grant Collier and John Maling. 32 inspiring and thoughtful lines enable the reader to climb with the author and photographers from the opening of the poem … Have you ever held a mountain Cupped it gently in your hand Felt the texture of its ridges Sifted slow its granite sand Brushed its trees and touched its meadows Heard its glaciers grinding down Felt wet and rocky muscle Under flesh of green and brown? … to the closing. And then, the reader will immediately start from the beginning, savoring the words and photos once again.
