All or Nothing: Bringing balance to the achievement-oriented personality

USD $24.99 Tax Included

In this fascinating and insightful book, clinical psychologist Mike McKinney takes an informed look at the often talked about but little understood phenomenon of the ‘all or nothing’ personality: a personality type that is driven to focus on one task or area of life to the exclusion of all else.

The author looks at how this personality type can form (through, for example, a deep fear of failure, a desire to please others, or childhood expectations that you must ‘always do your best’) and, more importantly, he explores how balance can be brought to the all-or-nothing personality, so that its best qualities can be retained while the potential negatives are mitigated, resulting in a more meaningful and rewarding life.

Heartfulness: Beyond Mindfulness – Finding Your Real Life

USD $19.99 Tax Included

Being heartful simply means being fully connected — with ourselves and with other people — and therefore fully alive, happy, without stress and at peace.

With anecdotes, things to do and think about and lots to gently read and enjoy, this is a gentle warm book that seeks to bring the reader home to a happy state.

I-Power: The Freedom to Be Me

USD $21.95 Tax Included

We all too often look for happiness and contentment via relationships, success and recognition — all things that lie outside ourselves. Underpinned by Boundary Theory, this book illustrates why this approach is actually at the heart of why we end up experiencing unhappiness and discontent.

By learning to approach life with a boundary focus, we discover that nobody can ‘make’ us feel or do anything; only we are responsible for how we feel. We also become able to switch our rational brain on, and our emotional brain off, when making decisions or facing challenges. And we are far better placed to minimise stress. By implementing boundaries so that we take responsibility only for ourselves, we will find ourselves able to lessen interpersonal conflict, and greatly enhance our feelings of contentment, fulfilment and balance.
