77 Habits for Highly Successful Living: Your Personal Pathway to Success, Riches and Happiness

Are you really interested in having a better life?

And ready to create a vision for yourself that will inspire and motivate you to move beyond your old limitations?

Do you wake up in the morning wondering if things could be so much better for you than they are right now? If you're really ready for a change and willing to make the effort, this could be one of the defining moments of your life. Because so much of our experience, our successes and our failures, are simply the results of the habits we use every day. Recognising that most of our behaviour is little more than a set of habits and conditioned reflexes allows us to begin the process of real transformation. Once we begin to use the kind of habits that lead directly to more positive outcomes, we can adopt behaviours that support our real potential for happiness, success and fulfilment.

The startling fact is that only around four percent of the people who are recognised as being very successful have a happy and satisfying life. That might come as a shock to you. Yet that significant group of four percent displays habits that not only encourage success but foster great relationships and a level of personal happiness that makes their lives deeply satisfying at every level. Should we consider these relatively rare individuals lucky? Well, no. Because the habits and behaviours they employ every day can be learned. That's right. It's possible for each and every one of us to develop these habits for ourselves and watch the wonderful changes that naturally occur when we introduce incredibly positive behaviours into our lives.

˃˃˃ Amongst a wealth of practical insights and essential guidance, you can learn how to

Master your emotional reactions and re-set your expectations

Chart your progress and record every victorious step on the pathway to fulfilment

Become calm and centered in the face of stress, tension and challenges

Develop immensely strong resilience in the face of the inevitable setbacks

See the world through the eyes of others

Understand why some people don't want you to succeed

Grant yourself the gift of true happiness

Explore the joy of making a positive difference wherever you go

Re-calibrate your old emotional reactions and transform them into positive feelings

Enjoy the gift of your life today and share the joy with the people around you

Cultivate a sense of peaceful detachment from the negativity that often surrounds you

Accept yourself at the deepest possible level

Be at peace with the rest of the world

˃˃˃ Life-Changing Methods

The life-changing methods that are shared in this totally practical guide to making your life better have been developed from the latest research in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and encourage the use of higher brain functions that are so effective in overcoming inappropriate habits and emotional reactions. Clearly, there is a formula for success and it is now available for everyone to share and pursue according to their own interpretation of what personal success really means. Yes, like all the worthwhile things in life, the process requires effort but the author rightly reassures us that we expend vast amounts of energy every day maintaining the way we live and the way we experience life's possibilities. Why not expend some of that precious energy on creating a much better set of conditions for ourselves? It is very much the pathway to personal freedom and self-expression.

Do you want to successfully self-publish?

I've spent the last seven years self-publishing bestselling fiction and non-fiction books and in 2011, I left my day job to become a full-time author entrepreneur.

In this book, I'll share everything with you.

Diffusing Essential Oils (Witchwood Estate Collectables Book 2)
Since doing my certificate in Clinical Aromatherapy in the early 2000s, I must have read dozens of aromatherapy books, ranging from heavy texts for the professional practitioner to introductory ones for the layman. But I don't think I've seen a better resource for the lay user than this one. T. Ormiston-smith.

Mother Nature's medicine cabinet.
In ancient times, the plant kingdom provided our earliest ancestors with the natural healing powers derived from nature. Extracts and essences from plants and flowers were prized for their medicinal, spiritual, aromatic, and therapeutic value, including beauty benefits.

Aromatic plants, essences, and oils have traditionally been used during religious ceremonies and observances, beauty care and perfumes, food enhancement, and preservation. Aromatic plants were the basis for herbal and botanical medicines and remedies for thousands of years - they still are. In fact, they’re the root of today’s modern pharmaceuticals.

And as lifestyles rapidly changed to meet everyday challenges, and technology progressed in leaps and bounds, herbal knowledge soon fell by the wayside.

During the past century, as the side effects of many chemically based drugs come to light - not to mention the exuberant costs, natural healing has come full circle and has gradually found its way back into our homes. The Western World is standing up and taking notice. People are educating themselves about the wonderful uses and benefits of using essential oils, herbs, and spices. Mother nature's medicine cabinet is back, invoking endless remedies and in some cases, cures - without the side effects.

Granted. Natural healing may not replace the family doctor or chemically manufactured drugs entirely, but it certainly is a healthy alternative to consider when thinking about your health, beauty, wellbeing, and fitness regime.

Bonus: Includes Medicinal Herbs and their uses.

Discover the many benefits to diffusing essential oils to achieve optimal health and well-being in your home and workplace.
Diffusing essential oils can help you study better, sleep better, enhance your moods and put you in the mood...

Essential oils and pregnancy.

Essential oils and children.

There is also a section about essential oils for pets – which ones to use and which ones to avoid.

Always Know What To Say - Easy Ways To Approach And Talk To Anyone
Who is this book for?

"Always Know What To Say" is for anyone who wants a straight to the point explanation of conversation skills fundamentals. I point out key distinctions you can apply right away to go from being tongue tied and unsure of what to say to having fun meeting people and getting to know them better. If you read AND apply what I cover in the book you`ll make steady progress and become much more at ease talking to people.

This book is not for you if you already have very good conversation skills and are comfortable meeting new people and letting your personality shine. You need to go elsewhere if you are looking for "secrets" and advanced strategies to achieve conversation skills mastery. You`ll regard this book as common sense.

And finally, this book is not for you if you read self help books and disregard the training because you`ve read something similar before and never apply what you learn. You`ll tell yourself you knew it all already.

You`ll gain a lot from "Always Know What To Say" if you treat it as a set of principles and strategies you get to play with in the real world. This is not light entertainment, its practical training that`s designed for you to use in your day to day life. If you do you`ll enjoy the happiness and warmth that comes from connecting with the important people in your life whether that be in your family and community or at work.

Here`s what people are saying about this book at Amazon.com

"If you are a shy person who finds it difficult to communicate with new people then this book will be helpful. Peter Murphy presents conversation starters, explains body language and teaches you what to ask people when you first meet. This book contains simple strategies for entertaining conversations. With this book anyone should be able to survive a party or talk to strangers on a plane. I personally find that listening to people talk about their life is a good way to make people like you. Being a shy person by nature I found some of this book to be very useful."

Rebecca Johnson

"I found a lot of great ideas in this book. I will have to refer back to it frequently to remember some of the ideas. Its a short book but not only is it packed with great ideas but the author has a great free website packed with ideas and there is a free audio on his website. I think it would be worth writing down some of the ideas and reviewing them before a social situation."

Cynthia from Florida

"As a manager of a retail store that pushes strong customer service, I have a large young staff. I've shared excerpts from this book with them and it blows their mind. As a young person they are having a hard time talking to people about something that they are worried doesn't interest the customer so they are all worried about failure and rejection. This book, I believe, has helped save my store. It is very basic, but almost like, why didn't I think to tell my staff that!"

J.Conley
