Ego is the Enemy
pdf | 1.69 MB | English | Isbn:‎ B015NTIXWE | Author: Ryan Holiday | Year: 2016


Description:

Quote:The instant Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and international bestseller

"While the history books are filled with tales of obsessive visionary geniuses who remade the world in their image with sheer, almost irrational force, I've found that history is also made by individuals who fought their egos at every turn, who eschewed the spotlight, and who put their higher goals above their desire for recognition." -from the prologue


Many of us insist the main impediment to a full, successful life is the outside world. In fact, the most common enemy lies within: our ego. Early in our careers, it impedes learning and the cultivation of talent. With success, it can blind us to our faults and sow future problems. In failure, it magnifies each blow and makes recovery more difficult. At every stage, ego holds us back.

Ego Is the Enemy draws on a vast array of stories and examples, from literature to philosophy to his­tory. We meet fascinating figures such as George Marshall, Jackie Robinson, Katharine Graham, Bill Belichick, and Eleanor Roosevelt, who all reached the highest levels of power and success by con­quering their own egos. Their strategies and tactics can be ours as well.

In an era that glorifies social media, reality TV, and other forms of shameless self-promotion, the battle against ego must be fought on many fronts. Armed with the lessons in this book, as Holiday writes, "you will be less invested in the story you tell about your own specialness, and as a result, you will be liberated to accomplish the world-changing work you've set out to achieve."

Unexpected Trouble - Lauren Wood
epub | 369.61 KB | English | Isbn:‎ B09JP648D2 | Author: Lauren Wood | Year: 2021


Description:

Quote:One Mistake.
Too many times.
Now there is a secret to show for it.


It was a new start, a break from the city.
I needed to get away, and I found the perfect place,
With sexy mountain men to fulfill my notion of romance.
Everything was perfect, even my landlord who was rude but so damn good-looking.
He wasn't interested, but I persisted.
His touches made me think it was meant to be.
His words fooled me as well.
It didn't last long, but I had no regrets.
His ex-girlfriend was a nightmare who didn't get the memo.
She was out for blood, and it was no longer worth it.
My dream of small-town living was dashed.
My reputation was destroyed, and I left in embarrassment.
I didn't leave empty-handed though.

Our secret baby came as a surprise, and not a good one either.
How was I supposed to tell him I was pregnant after leaving him in such a way?
Would he even listen? Would he care?
