Explanation of the Book:

Adversity can be a blessing. That’s a lesson that Gregg Lorberbaum learned early in life when he was diagnosed with a learning disability. He overcame it by developing skills of self-reflection, communication, and relationship building. These tools helped him become one of New York City’s most accomplished commercial real estate brokers, working for the firm formed by football legend Roger Staubach. Along the way, Lorberbaum realized those skills also work for finding love, raising children, sustaining a great marriage, and stiff-arming the tacklers of life. When Lorberbaum became a consultant and coach, he began sharing his unique approaches and concepts that will work to help you become who you want to be. These include— • Living a role-based lifestyle, • Paying it forward to our future selves through acts of kindness, • Doing the things we say we will, and • Learning from our past behaviors by keeping track of our actions. Lorberbaum’s tool kit is easy to use, and one of the most important tools is simply taking a few minutes each day to record a thought or action. If we can look back on our actions, we can and will make better decisions going forward. Because he’s kept daily journals accounting for nearly thirty-five years of his life, Lorberbaum is able to take us on a lively journey back in time—from the corporate suites of Manhattan to the backwoods of the Deep South—that includes his victories, heartaches, set-backs, and casual encounters that resulted in profound ideas. The book’s design allows readers to take in the lessons of Becoming Who You Want to Be while enjoying original art by ELO, an up-and-coming NYC artist, who recently had his second solo show. Anyone who has faced angst over work, love, or simply being alive will be charmed and changed by turning the pages of this wise, funny, and humble book. ​Gregg Lorberbaum is a second-time author, a management consultant and coach, and a father of three, who lives in Armonk, New York, with his wife, Jill.

Explanation of the Book:

"A stimulating book about combating despair and complacency with searching reflection." --Heller McAlpin, NPR.org Named a Best Book of 2018 by NPR. One of Lit Hub's 15 Books You Should Read in September and one of Outside's Best Books of Fall A revelatory Alpine journey in the spirit of the great Romantic thinker Friedrich Nietzsche Hiking with Nietzsche: Becoming Who You Are is a tale of two philosophical journeys—one made by John Kaag as an introspective young man of nineteen, the other seventeen years later, in radically different circumstances: he is now a husband and father, and his wife and small child are in tow. Kaag sets off for the Swiss peaks above Sils Maria where Nietzsche wrote his landmark work Thus Spoke Zarathustra. Both of Kaag’s journeys are made in search of the wisdom at the core of Nietzsche’s philosophy, yet they deliver him to radically different interpretations and, more crucially, revelations about the human condition. Just as Kaag’s acclaimed debut, American Philosophy: A Love Story, seamlessly wove together his philosophical discoveries with his search for meaning, Hiking with Nietzsche is a fascinating exploration not only of Nietzsche’s ideals but of how his experience of living relates to us as individuals in the twenty-first century. Bold, intimate, and rich with insight, Hiking with Nietzsche is about defeating complacency, balancing sanity and madness, and coming to grips with the unobtainable. As Kaag hikes, alone or with his family, but always with Nietzsche, he recognizes that even slipping can be instructive. It is in the process of climbing, and through the inevitable missteps, that one has the chance, in Nietzsche’s words, to “become who you are."

Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

You are NOT who you think you are. In fact, according to bestselling author Craig Groeschel in Altar Ego, you need to take your idea of your own identity, lay it down on the altar, and sacrifice it. Give it to God. Offer it up. Why? Because you are who GOD says you are. And until you’ve sacrificed your broken concept of your identity, you won’t become who you are meant to be. When we place our false labels and self-deception on the altar of God’s truth, we discover who we really are as his sons and daughters. Instead of an outward-driven, approval-based ego, we learn to live with an “altar” ego, God’s vision of who we are becoming. Discover how to trade in your broken ego and unleash your altar ego to become a living sacrifice. Once we know our true identity and are growing in our Christ-like character, then we can behave accordingly, with bold behavior, bold prayers, bold words, and bold obedience. Altar Ego reveals who God says you are, and then calls you to live up to it.

Explanation of the Book:

In his early twenties in Hong Kong, Albert Cruz was undisciplined, discouraged, and unmotivated. Determined to change, he embarked on a vigorous quest to take charge of his life. Albert started writing down what he wanted to own and who he wanted to become — early “wish lists” that would evolve into his balanced goal-setting method. He searched for motivation and new ideas in books, speakers, courses, and mentors — knowledge he would eventually refine into his nine guidelines. At age 38, Albert’s goal setting and guidelines were put to the test when he left behind a comfortable life in Hong Kong and immigrated to America. Adapting to a foreign culture and establishing a new career was often painful, occasionally hilarious, and always rich with powerful lessons. Becoming Who You Want to Be traces Albert’s journey and introduces readers to the practices that helped him achieve success. After forty years of goal setting, Albert has checked off most items on his wish list, including higher education and financial independence. He truly has become the person he always wanted to be.

As First Lady of the United States of America--the first African American to serve in that role--she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare. In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her--from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world's most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it--in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations--and whose story inspires us to do the same.

Explanation of the Book:

Poet, philosopher, and cancer survivor Mark Nepo has been breaking a path of spiritual inquiry for more than forty years. In his latest book, the #1 New York Times bestselling author “writes reflectively and poetically about the lifelong spiritual journey” (Publishers Weekly). Called one of the finest spiritual guides of our time, Nepo explores what it means to become our truest self as we face life’s challenges—as well as its joys. Navigating some of the soul’s deepest, most ancient questions, he asks: How do we stay vital and buoyant amid the storms of life? What is the secret to coming alive? The soul’s journey is inevitable, and no matter where we go we can’t escape this foundational truth: What’s in the way is the way. As Nepo writes, “The point of experience is not to escape life but to live it.” Featured on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday program, and a key presenter in Oprah’s nationwide The Life You Want Weekend Tour, Nepo inspires each of us to discover who we were born to be. Like his bestselling The Book of Awakening, The Endless Practice is filled with insights and stories, guidance and practice that will bring you closer to living life to the fullest.
