It can hurt to hear someone tell it like it is. But sometimes you need to get the truth, straight up. And the truth is that it's not about you--it's about God. Maybe you have relied on your own strength for far too long. You haven't been able to count on other people, so you just do your own thing. But God has bigger plans for you. God wants to use you to change the world. Rebecca Osaigbovo, conference speaker and author of Chosen Vessels, shows how black women can stand up to Satan's lies and face tough problems, not in your own strength but by finding God's strength in the midst of your weaknesses. She says this to women who want to be the keys to change in their homes, churches and communities: "If you want things to be different, then stop going your own way and follow God's lead. Lean not on your own understanding, and he'll make your paths straight."

If you're reading this book, then you need help with your workplace relationships. Your current thoughts and ideas about the work place may be causing you stress and frustration. That's the old you. The new you will find this book an absolute godsend if you have the courage to truly look at yourself and the situations around you. You will either love or hate this book. It is thought-provoking and confronting. I believe it's an "in your face" look at people and human nature at work. The reason I say love or hate it is because it depends on how honest you are and whether or not you can accept that if I push your buttons, I am offering you a chance to grow and learn about yourself. If you push your buttons, I am offering you a chance to grow and learn about yourself. I am offering you a chance to grow and learn about yourself. If you push my buttons, then you give me the opportunity to learn about myself. It's all about you. That concept will be explained in depth over the next few chapters.

There is no real "silver bullet" to find a job. If there were, all you would need would be an order blank, and not a handbook. The job search is about you, but the application of the job search is about them. Throughout this book, you will see the phrase "It is not about you, it is about them." You are a worthy person and should be doing a job that is your passion. However, that is not why companies and organizations hire people. People are hired because they have the skills that companies can use to either make a profit or complete their mission. Whether profit, nonprofit, or government position, the skill the company needs and that you offer must match to be assured consideration for the job. A job search is the hardest work for the poorest pay of any job you will ever do. If you are not spending as many hours in your job search as you spent doing your previous job, you will probably not find a job you will enjoy on the same level that you were accustomed to. C. Bruce Flanagan is the lead consultant for LEJ Unlimited. After a career as a nation-leading salesman of custom media, he launched a consulting career for job seekers. He has11 years of job search experience. He was president of Business and Profession Exchange (BPE), Central Indiana's leading networking group. With Bruce's leadership, BPE received publicity on multiple television stations, including a personal appearance by Bruce on Gerry Dick's television program, Inside INdiana Business. BPE was also the subject of a lead story in The Indianapolis Business Journal.

This book is raw, unfiltered emotion. I wrote this book as a catharsis, never intending for it to be published until the people with whom I shared it told me I should. This book is what I call a 'diary of fragments,' meaning it is exactly how I was feeling at that moment. Throughout this book, I deal with what I thought was love, what I know was heartbreak, mental illness, and a slew of other trials and tribulations in the best way that I knew how--writing.

She helps readers - identify the secret source of insecurity - understand how self-focus sabotages seven areas of our lives - learn four practical steps for focusing on God and others - experience freedom from the burden of self-focus Anyone yearning for a purpose bigger than "project me" will cherish this paradigm-shifting message of true fulfillment.

Its Not About You sets before evangelical Christians a threefold challenge: take stock of ones life; assess the depth of commitment to promoting oneself at Gods expense; and follow Jesus Christ completely in faithful obedience. T. Collins, an experienced teacher and international medical missionary, draws upon background as a physician and an author to diagnose the human condition of idolatry, in which individuals place themselves and their desires ahead of God and his will for their lives. The discussion emerging from this diagnostic work will draw in readers with its reasoned use of Scripture, its inclusive depictions of the human condition, and its passionate appeals for Christians to turn their lives over to Jesus Christ. Spanning three sectionsIts Not About a Lot of Things, Its Not about Your Blessings, and Making It Not About Usthe twenty-five chapters in Its Not About You offers readers a rigorous and comprehensive assessment of their lives, culminating with a call to discipleship. As the last chapter notes, Contrary to what our society would like to believe, theres only one way to follow Jesuscompletely. If you have found your life lacking focus and purpose, if you doubted that endlessly chasing the worlds bright and shiny trinkets was the ultimate point of living, and if you have found Jesus call to follow him beguiling you to respond, then Its Not About You will serve as your guide to replacing your own self with God at the center of your life.

What if you had struggled nearly your entire life with poverty, loss, and personal torment? Would you turn your back on God, assuming He had done the same, or would you push onward, strengthened by your faith in His love? It's Not about Me, It's about You is author Nelda Cantu Garcia's personal tale of hardships and triumph. Born into a God-fearing family, but also into poverty, Garcia miraculously survived taunting, bullying, and three near-death experiences with her faith in God, and in herself, intact. Equally miraculous was her path to fulfilling her dream of becoming a teacher despite the odds being stacked against her. Even in the face of losing people she held dear, Garcia retains her sense of hope, her optimism, and her unshakable belief that God is in control. Through her story and the lessons she learned in adversity, Garcia hopes to share God's light. She explores her own commitment to live positively, to thrive, and to nurture those around her and will inspire you to follow a similar path.

This practical handbook will equip readers with the tools to have meaningful conversations about death and dying Death is a part of life. We used to understand this, and in the past, loved ones generally died at home with family around them. But in just a few generations, death has become a medical event, and we have lost the ability to make this last part of life more personal and meaningful. Today people want to regain control over health-care decisions for themselves and their loved ones. Talking About Death Won’t Kill You is the essential handbook to help Canadians navigate personal and medical decisions for the best quality of life for the end of our lives. Noted palliative-care educator and researcher Kathy Kortes-Miller shows readers how to identify and reframe limiting beliefs about dying with humor and compassion. With robust resource lists, Kortes-Miller addresses advance care plans for ourselves and our loved ones how to have conversations about end-of-life wishes with loved ones how to talk to children about death how to build a compassionate workplace practical strategies to support our colleagues how to talk to health-care practitioners how to manage challenging family dynamics as someone is dying what is involved in medical assistance in dying (MAID) Far from morbid, these conversations are full of meaning and life — and the relief that comes from knowing what your loved ones want, and what you want for yourself.

If the God who spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai 3000 years ago, does not speak to Mr. Mosley in Miami Beach in 2009, we have a theological problem. This book is the result of a deep conviction that to be effective in the 21st century, a preacher must focus one eye on the Bible and the other on the mass media. This collection of 52 sermons invites the reader to awaken to a new level of consciousness about his innate identity as a spiritual being and to affi rm the divinity in others. The author beautifully blends his personal stories with the stories of God and challenges you to look beyond what you see, to experience God with your sixth sense, treat every place as holy ground and to love your neighbor as an extension of your own self. Thought provoking and non traditional, these sermons are relevant beyond the walls of churches and chapels
