In the desire and quest to make sense of the world and our existence, three great sirens have lured men and women into a lull with the empty promise to make their lives meaningful. The great king of Israel, Solomon, though the wisest man, was not immune to their song. But at the end of his life, Solomon, in all of his God-given wisdom, stopped to contemplate on all that competed for his attention. He wrote his conclusions in the Book of Ecclesiastes.Tommy Nelson continues his study of Solomon's writings by taking an in-depth look at Ecclesiastes. In a world such as ours, where the search for meaning and purpose propels mankind to try everything under the sun, Solomon's conclusions ring louder than ever for a people who need answers more than ever.

We all long to live a fulfilled and happy life – a life that offers us love and opportunity, independence and hope. Sadly, for many people struggling with mental health problems such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders and addiction, recovery and a future full of potential may seem to be unachievable goals. In The Life Well Lived Professor Jim Lucey focuses on how a range of contemporary therapies can provide pathways to recovery. Through insightful case histories, he also explores issues such as stigma and other barriers to recovery, the true meaning of wellness, and how the rediscovery of a life of independence and social connection is not only possible but entirely achievable. Positive and optimistic, The Life Well Lived shines a light into the psychotherapeutic world – a world which is so often feared and misunderstood.

Whatever your age, in this book I will challenge you to re-evaluate your life for the better. To ask yourself deeper more powerful questions about how you spend your time on earth. To think clearly about how you prioritize the things in life that are most important to you. To make changes and take actions that will enhance your experience, friendships and general enjoyment of life. To live with a passion, you might have forgot is even there...Do you feel you are you getting the most from your life, maximizing every single day?Are you passionate about your daily work or activities? Do you travel frequently and see many of the places you dreamed of seeing in the world? Do you feel time is running out too quickly on your goals or bucket list? Do you feel trapped in a situation that's holding you back? Would you like to ask better questions, take stronger actions and add more meaning, experience and color to your life? "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did so. So, throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. "Let us live so that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry." - Mark TwainFour of My Close Friends Never Saw Their 50th Birthday's I was lucky in a strange sort of way in that one of my best friends died when I was in my early 30's. He was a world-class athlete and only 42 years old. It quickly brought home to me how fickle life can be at an age when few people think of death. Most of us pretty much take our lives and our health for granted until we get ill or someone close to us dies. Since Dave's death 30 years ago three more of my good friends one man and two ladies have also died of various forms of cancer before, they were 50. Randy, Trish and Donna all had a whole lot of life still in them. Only Randy smoked, the rest had a healthy lifestyle and just got a bad draw in the gene pool. There is not much you can do about that except get constant check-ups and try and nip it in the bud. Even when the prognosis was fatal none of them expected to die. Two were convinced their faith in God would save them, the other that natural healing could do the job. All were making big plans for their future "when they got better." The future never came. Donna never got to see Hawaii, although we practically begged her to go, even offering frequent flyer miles and hotels to make it easy. Too many great people die with the life still in them. While there is little, we can do with the winds of fate we can make sure we get more joy, experience and adventure in our lives. As Jon Bon Jovi so eloquently said. "I don't want to live forever I just want to live while I'm alive!" Creating Your New Life BlueprintYou are neither too young or too old to start living a more fulfilling life. Go back through the 50 questions from chapter four and review them. Answer the hard ones with zero based thinking and re-evaluate how you will move forward. Shun the idea of living a balanced life and go all in to the key things that you love with passion. Start checking off that bucket list, take more chances and most of all take action towards creating a life truly well lived. Your life! ONE THING I PROMISE...By the end of this book you will not look at your life the same way again...While the book is packed with stimulating ideas, it's an easy read with no chapter longer than 3 pages. To back up my point of view, I have dug deep into the biographies of some very accomplished people and quote them at the start of each chapter. I have added their pictures as well to give addition meaning to them and provide additional stimulation to you.

In a world where everything is constantly moving forward, we often take a long, hard look in the mirror, see the same old sinner that should have been left behind long ago, and wonder if we’ve done enough to merit God’s approval. The Creator never intended us to be burdened by constant guilt, shame, and fear. In A Life Well Lived, Charles Swindoll provides a poignant and inspirational message from the book of Micah that frees Christians from unscriptural notions of failure and shows them the rewards of an obedient heart. Rather than focusing on the “Checklist Christianity” that misses God’s message of redemption, Swindoll encourages us to embrace the fullness of our Creator’s love. Leave the shackles of second-guessing forever behind and embrace God’s grace with A Life Well Lived. “What honors the Lord is a heart that beats in the same rhythm as His, a spirit that values the same qualities that define Him. He wants people who do what is right, who love kindness, and who walk humbly with Him. Do as he says, and you will not only honor the Lord you love, you will live life well.”

Sylvia Crocker's A Well-Lived Life is a work of a daring and creative thinker, offering a bold reconceptualization of Gestalt therapy that extends all the way from its philosophical foundation to the nuances of its clinical application. In prose that is clear as a bell, Crocker fully exposes the depth and power of Gestalt therapy's field theoretical model, deftly moving from individual to larger systems work and back again, and capturing the full range of human psychological phenomena as she goes. From the acquisition and maintenance of simple behavioral habits, to the construction of personal narrative and myth, Crocker's Gestalt therapy model is equally at home and applicable. Her vision of Gestalt therapy is at the same time startingly unique and comfortably familiar. She is firmly rooted in Gestalt Therapy's 'phenomenological behaviorism, " but at the same time offers us a model for assessing and working with self functions which is remarkably creative, and represents an important new contribution to the field. And throughout the text, interpolated between her provocative theoretical formulations, we encounter Crocker the clinician - moving straight ahead, getting right at the issue, making sense, and all the while, concretely instructive regarding the nature of the work. This is a book that will make a difference, challenging the way we think about the practice, the craft of psychotherapy.

Psychology has made great strides in understanding mental illness, but how much has it learned about mental health? When people want to reflect upon the good life and how to live it, they turn to philosophers and novelists, not psychologists. The emerging field of positive psychology aims to redress this imbalance. In Flourishing, distinguished scholars apply scientific analyses to study the good life, expanding the scope of social and psychological research to include happiness, well-being, courage, citizenship, play, and the satisfactions of healthy work and healthy relationships. Their findings reveal that a sense of meaning and a feeling of richness emerge in life as people immerse themselves in activities, relationships, and the pursuit of intrinsically satisfying goals like overcoming adversity or serving one's community through volunteering. This provocative book will further define this evolving field.

This book brings to life the meaning of the stories of the seven goddesses of Greek mythology. Each goddess represents a “sacred calling,” a way of life whose goal is to live for the sake of something greater than oneself. Athena is the goddess of wisdom and justice; Artemis is the woods woman who protects the natural world; Demeter is the goddess of the fertility of the earth and the birth and nurturing of children; Hera is the wife of Zeus, the king, who dedicates her life to creating a high quality of public life through nurturing various community activities; Aphrodite is the goddess of creativity; Persephone is the victim who was raped by Hades and abducted to the underworld where she punishes those who victimized others while alive; and Hestia is the contemplative, she who reflects upon human affairs and “sees” how all the parts fit a larger whole. The book will allow readers to recognize themselves and their own sacred passions in these stories. Once recognized, women can educate themselves and each other. They can use the wisdom represented in Greek mythology to create meaningful and complete lives in the context of a culture that is still dominated by men and their passions. In this way, women will be liberated to do everything they can to leave a better world behind for their children, grandchildren and future generations.
