DESCRIPTION BOOK:

How long has it been since you made an intentional decision that shaped your life? Did that decision draw you closer to God or lead you away from Him? This thought-provoking book unveils God’s intentional decision to place us here, not so we could wander aimlessly, but to include us in what He is doing. As a result of this truth, where we live, how we live, and why we live become matters of great importance. Jesus lived intentionally. He was sent into the world and has already walked where we are to walk. He came to point the way to God, to save, and to serve. As a true Christ follower, we should have the same mission. Intentional Living will inspire you to begin applying this lifestyle philosophy by loving God with your whole being. Intentionally commit to think with God’s mind, see through God’s eyes, embrace God’s personality, feel with God’s heart, tell God’s story, influence with God’s light, and serve with God’s strength.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

John C. Maxwell, #1 New York Times bestselling author, helps readers take the first steps to living a life that matters in INTENTIONAL LIVING. We all have a longing to be significant. We want to make a contribution, to be a part of something noble and purposeful. But many people wrongly believe significance is unattainable. They worry that it's too big for them to achieve. That they have to have an amazing idea, be a certain age, have a lot of money, or be powerful or famous to make a real difference. The good news is that none of those things is necessary for you to achieve significance and create a lasting legacy. The only thing you need to achieve significance is to be intentional. And to do that, all you need to do is start. You can't make an impact sitting still and doing nothing. Every major accomplishment that's ever been achieved started with a first step. Sometimes it's hard; other times it's easy, but no matter what, you have to do it if you want to get anywhere in life. In INTENTIONAL LIVING, John Maxwell will help you take that first step, and the ones that follow, on your personal path through a life that matters.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

We can get caught up in what everybody else is doing, what the world wants us to become and then we lose sight of the purpose of our life and the value we can contribute to the world. What is Intentional Living? It’s giving everything we’ve got to make sure we don’t miss a thing. Intentional living is knowing WHY we do what we do. It’s what makes us put down our phone, turn off the TV, de-clutter our homes, and make the moments matter. Intentional living means choosing to live in a way that is in alignment with your purpose in life. Sounds intense, I know. But it’s soooo good! Intentional living takes you from where you are not to where you want to go. It’s the roadmap that helps you navigate life. Intentional living means valuing life so much that you decide how you want to live ahead of time. I am passionate about intentional living, ever since I ‘discovered’ it a few years back and it completely changed my life. I believe that one of the most important lessons that a person can learn is not to just drift through life, but live intentionally and on purpose – and honestly, the sooner we get it, the better. To live an intentional life, we must begin by laying a proper foundation and then add practical steps on top of it. There is no right or wrong way to live intentionally; it works however you define your why. Work on that definition and then live it as you mean it. ‘A Year of Intentional Living’ is divided into 12 chapters – one for each month covering topics like ‘Mind, Body Spirit Rituals’, ‘Health & Well-being’, ‘Your Signature Style’, ‘Soulful Home’, ‘Connecting with Yourself’ and more. In this book, you’ll find practical advice with actionable steps that you can apply right away to start Living a Well-Designed Life; Consciously, Intentionally & Wholeheartedly! “You are the greatest project you will ever get to work on. Take your time.”

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Intentional living is a must-read for those that want to live their life on purpose. The conscious choice to create your life, to respond rather than react, to chart your own course both professionally and personally, is an amazing thing. However, it’s also difficult to achieve. Life should be more than a series of situations in which you find yourself. It should be more than a string of events in which you are a passive observer taking a reactionary stance. Intentional living requires that you act, that you decide, and that you choose. Intentional Living, above all else, is a series of lessons learned. Challenge yourself to live in your strengths and passion areas and enjoy the journey of life. Each new day brings another opportunity for learning and personal and professional growth.

We are lucky. For most of us, famine, plague, economic depression, and other life-threatening catastrophes are the stuff of history books. We’re living in an era with the highest-ever rates of longevity, education, and wealth. Cars drive us home as our phones entertain us before we arrive to food delivered to the front door.

When we crack, we shatter. We are turning into an army of porcelain dolls. A rude email from the boss means calling in sick. Only two likes on our post means we don’t have friends. Cell phones show us we’re never good enough. Yesterday’s butterflies are tomorrow’s panic attacks. Record numbers of students have clinical anxiety. And what about depression, loneliness, and suicide? All rising! What do we desperately need to learn? RESILIENCE. And we need to learn it fast. Read You Are Awesome to learn: • The single word that keeps your options open after failure • What every commencement speech gets wrong • 3 ways to dramatically accelerate your ability to learn and adapt • The 2-minute morning practice that helps eliminate worry • Why you need an Untouchable Day (and how to get one) • and much, much more...

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Opt out of expectations and live a more intentional life with this refreshing guide from the national bestselling author of The Year of Less. We all follow our own path in life. At least, that's what we're told. In reality, many of us either do what is expected of us, or follow the invisible but well-worn paths that lead to what is culturally acceptable. For some, those paths are fine -- even great. But they leave some of us feeling disconnected from ourselves and what we really want. When that discomfort finally outweighs the fear of trying something new, we're ready to opt out. After going through this process many times, Cait Flanders found there is an incredible parallel between taking a different path in life and the psychological work it takes to summit a mountain -- especially when you decide to go solo. In Adventures in Opting Out, she offers a trail map to help you with both. As you'll see, reaching the first viewpoint can be easy -- and it offers a glimpse of what you're walking toward. Climbing to the summit for the full view is worth it. But in the space between those two peaks you will enter a world completely unknown to you, and that is the most difficult part of the path to navigate. With Flanders's guidance and advice, drawn from her own journey and stories of others, you'll have all the encouragement and insight you'll need to take the path less traveled and create the life you want. Just step up to the trailhead and expect it to be an adventure.

By reading this book you will learn: * How Stability in your life - stability in your character, in your economics, in your health, and in your relationships provides a platform for you to launch your dreams and design the life of your choosing! * How crafting a Vision for your life involves goal setting, design and finding your purpose! * How balancing the Yang energy or "kinetic energy" with the Yin energy (or potential energy) enables you to achieve your dreams while "enjoying the journey!" Following this pattern - STABILITY, VISION, and BALANCE - or what we call, The Intentional Living Cycle, enables you to reach new heights that you never thought possible! We encourage you to heed this call to action and take charge of your life today! The authors readily admit that they have a bias for action (an effect of their military service) with an aggressive approach to problem-solving of "Ready, Fire, Aim, Fire!"

Don't take our word for it -- go to the website, look inside the book, and it will be readily apparent! IF YOU GIVE THIS BOOK AN EARNEST TRY, YOU WILL BE SUCCESSFUL!

Language: en
Available for:

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

This set includes all three books of the Intentional Life Series: Soul Passion, Soul Mission, and Soul Vision. Throughout the Ages, humanity has pursued the "meaning of life." However, most of us live decidedly arbitrary lives, muddling through from day to day. In the Intentional Life Series, Dr. Ramesh Richard, who has been called the layman's Ravi Zacharias, articulates how a meaningful life must be a truly intentional life comprised of passion, mission, and vision. He believes that in order for us to embody our true selves and become what we were designed to be, we must reevaluate that passion, mission, and vision and conform them to God's will. In Soul Passion, Richard argues that even though many of us know there must be something more to life, we stumble about with undirected goals and undiscovered passion. He motivates readers to ask themselves what their passion is -- where they have placed their heart, love, trust, and sufficiency. Discovering your soul passion is the foundation for living a biblically well-built and profitable life. In Soul Mission, Richard explores what it means to have a mission for your life that is in response to God's universal purpose. Readers will find themselves deeply challenged to evaluate why they're here and find assistance with developing their own soul mission. In Soul Vision, Richard closes the trilogy by orienting his readers to the future, through guidance from the Divine Visionary.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Utopia is, literally, the good place that is no place. Utopias reveal people's dreams and desires and they may gesture towards different and better ways of being. But they are rarely considered as physical, observable phenomena. In this book Sargisson and Sargent, both established writers on utopian theory, turn their attention to real-life utopian communities. The book is based on their fieldwork and extensive archival research in New Zealand, a country with a special place in the history of utopianism. A land of opportunity for settlers with dreams of a better life, New Zealand has, per capita, more intentional communities - groups of people who have chosen to live and sometimes work together for a common purpose - than any country in the world. Sargisson and Sargent draw on the experiences of more than fifty such communities, to offer the first academic survey of this form of living utopian experiment. In telling the story of the New Zealand experience, Living in Utopia provides both transferable lessons in community, cooperation and social change and a unique insight into the utopianism at the heart of politics, society, and everyday life.
