Daniel Plan: Demystified - Soul Support And Healthy Weight Loss With 25 Delicious Daniel Plan Recipes

Who Else Wants To Discover The Secret Behind The Daniel Plan?

Are you confused as to “why” you get mediocre results following the same diet everyone else is doing? Hate it when you spend hours upon hours alone, struggling with your weight loss? Want a REALISTIC, proven weight loss plan that removes the barriers of weight loss isolation?

Are you starting to think something is wrong with your body, with you?

The truth is The Daniel Plan holds the keys to success when it comes to healthy weight loss. Not only healthy for the body but the mind and spirit as well. That is what sets it apart from so many other diet plans.

Isn't The Daniel Plan Just Another Weight Loss Plan

Well it is not exactly a weight loss plan but more of a lifestyle. Weight loss plans usually turn into fad diets but lifestyles allow you to be healthy the rest of your life. Granted The Daniel Plan all started with Pastor Rick Warren taking the time to be honest with himself and his congregation about the fact he was overweight.

He admitted he was not a taking care of the physical body God gave him and asked his followers for forgiveness. He wanted to be a role model not only in faith but in the way you should treat the body God gave you. He did the one thing many people cannot bring themselves to do.

He asked for help.

By following his faith and believing in the power of community he gained the support of not only his congregation and friends but of Dr. Oz, Dr. Mark Hyman and Dr. Daniel Amen. Without committing to and focusing on his physical health, he would have never been able to make The Daniel Plan what it is today. He would not have been able to change the lives of the thousands he has.

Follow The Daniel Plan’s Simple Lifestyle

What makes The Daniel Plan so easy to follow is the focus on committing to your belief that your body was meant for more than filling it with the processed junk being called food today. With a simple change in how you view food and the “why” behind putting it into your body, weight loss starts to happen naturally. You could say it is all based on natural weight loss.

When you are eating food for a purpose you do not have any trouble eliminating the health harming foods you used to eat. When you ask yourself “Why am I about to eat this and what is the benefit it provides for the body God gave me?” you make better choices.

While The Daniel Plan omits certain foods due to the potential negative impact they can have on your body, the focus is on providing you with an abundance of food to support healthy weight loss.

What You Will Discover Inside

  • 25 delicious recipes to add to your Daniel Plan cookbook collection
  • Why this one source of energy is all you need
  • The right foods to eat while not feeling deprived
  • The one thing you need in order to stick with your exercise routine
  • Discover how willpower alone means nothing
  • How this one “F” word can make all the difference

The Daniel Plan is not done just for religious reasons. It focuses on helping you find the motivation or reason why you want to take on a healthier lifestyle. There are any number of reasons you may have to want the best physical body possible and the methods inside The Daniel Plan support you whether your reasons are faith driven or not.

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

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.

Donner Party: Anatomy of Catastrophe (Shit Doesn't Just Happen Book 3)
“I wish I could cry, but I cannot. If I could forget the tragedy, perhaps I would know how to cry again.” Mary Graves. Survivor, the ‘Donner Party’

Every man-made disaster and catastrophe has at least six Cascade Events leading up to the final event, the catastrophe according to the Rule of Seven.

This is a quick read of the Cascade Events that led up to Cannibalism while the ‘Donner Party’ emigrated west to California

Bob examines the Rule of Seven, and how human error plays a role in many catastrophes. Nothing happens in isolation or as a result of a single event. Thus, by learning from history, we can gain insight into preventing a similar catastrophe in the future. The key to the Donner Party were the numerous tipping points where the group failed to make decisions. Also, most people don’t know how many homicides were committed during this event!
