#1 Wall Street Journal Best Seller USA Today Best Seller Amazon Best Book of the Year The counterintuitive approach to achieving your true potential, heralded by the Harvard Business Review as a groundbreaking idea of the year. The path to personal and professional fulfillment is rarely straight. Ask anyone who has achieved his or her biggest goals or whose relationships thrive and you’ll hear stories of many unexpected detours along the way. What separates those who master these challenges and those who get derailed? The answer is agility—emotional agility. Emotional agility is a revolutionary, science-based approach that allows us to navigate life’s twists and turns with self-acceptance, clear-sightedness, and an open mind. Renowned psychologist Susan David developed this concept after studying emotions, happiness, and achievement for more than twenty years. She found that no matter how intelligent or creative people are, or what type of personality they have, it is how they navigate their inner world—their thoughts, feelings, and self-talk—that ultimately determines how successful they will become. The way we respond to these internal experiences drives our actions, careers, relationships, happiness, health—everything that matters in our lives. As humans, we are all prone to common hooks—things like self-doubt, shame, sadness, fear, or anger—that can too easily steer us in the wrong direction. Emotionally agile people are not immune to stresses and setbacks. The key difference is that they know how to adapt, aligning their actions with their values and making small but powerful changes that lead to a lifetime of growth. Emotional agility is not about ignoring difficult emotions and thoughts; it’s about holding them loosely, facing them courageously and compassionately, and then moving past them to bring the best of yourself forward. Drawing on her deep research, decades of international consulting, and her own experience overcoming adversity after losing her father at a young age, David shows how anyone can thrive in an uncertain world by becoming more emotionally agile. To guide us, she shares four key concepts that allow us to acknowledge uncomfortable experiences while simultaneously detaching from them, thereby allowing us to embrace our core values and adjust our actions so they can move us where we truly want to go. Written with authority, wit, and empathy, Emotional Agility serves as a road map for real behavioral change—a new way of acting that will help you reach your full potential, whoever you are and whatever you face.

Behandeln Sie kleine emotionale Verletzungen, bevor sie zu großen Wunden werden. Auf ein aufgeschlagenes Knie kleben wir ein Pflaster. Was aber unternehmen wir, um die seelischen Verletzungen zu behandeln, die wir im Alltag erleiden? Oft fehlen uns dafür wirksame Mittel. Gleich zum Therapeuten zu gehen ist nicht immer sinnvoll, denn viele seelische Verletzungen sind nicht so schwer, dass sie professionelle Hilfe erfordern. Vergleichbar einem Medizinschränkchen mit Verbandszeug, Salben und Schmerzmitteln für die Grundversorgung körperlicher Alltagsverletzungen möchte dieses Buch eine Hausapotheke für die kleineren seelischen Verletzungen sein, die wir uns im täglichen Leben holen. Guy Winch führt Sie Schritt für Schritt in die Behandlung der häufigsten psychischen Verwundungen ein: Zurückweisung, Einsamkeit, Verlust, Schuldgefühle, Grübeln, Scheitern und ein geringes Selbstwertgefühl – hier lernen Sie, wie Sie mit emotionalen Wunden wirksam umgehen und so zu mehr Resilienz und Selbstvertrauen finden. »So sollte Selbsthilfe sein – effektiv und heilsam. In Emotionale Erste Hilfe findet jeder Techniken zur Selbstfürsorge für die eigene seelische Hausapotheke.« – Meg Selig, Psychology Today

On the cover of Carol Courcy’s SAVE YOUR INNER TORTOISE! is a photo of a tortoise wearing a helmet, a large red rocket strapped to its back and wheels! Carol laughed when seeing it for the first time as it “fit” with how she felt in her own life-- a bit exhausted by life’s demands and in need of protection as the helmet suggests. It was the rocket strapped to its back that compelled her to use the image on the cover. Those of us who hectically push our way through life need boosters to get ourselves through our many tasks and responsibilities. (Boosters like caffeine, sugar, long workdays, working on weekends and vacations or fitness classes to build stamina.) Carol thought many of her readers would find the cover humorous and a reminder of Aesop’s fable about who won the race between the tortoise and the hare. If you recall, the story is about a hare who ridicules a slow-moving tortoise. Surprisingly, the tortoise challenges the hare to a race. When the race starts, the hare speeds off leaving the tortoise far behind. Confident of winning, the hare takes a nap midway through the race. However, when it awakes, the hare sees the tortoise crawling slowly but steadily across the finish line. Only then does the hare realize the error of its strategy. Like the hare, we exhausted self-sacrificing, never-enough overachievers assume that at our furious pace we can cross an ever-increasing number of finish lines. (We will get help or rest soon. And soon hasn’t come yet.) As with the hare, we too sometimes find out too late we have used the wrong strategy. Is now the time to SAVE YOUR INNER TORTOISE? This is an ideal book if more of the same in your life is NOT an option. You will learn simple and effective ways to undermine undesirable patterns of self-doubt and second-guessing that fuel exhaustion and overwhelm. The aim is to make your journey across your finish lines satisfying—RIGHT FROM THE BEGINNING. If you bring genuine interest, leave the WHAT and HOW to Carol. Welcome!

Hundesport gehört heute für viele Hundehalter zum bereichernden Zusammenleben mit dem vierbeinigen Freund dazu. Besonders die beiden sogenannten "modernen" Sportarten, Agility und Obedience, boomen in den letzten Jahren. Egal wie intensiv man diese Sportarten betreibt, ob man Meisterschaften anstrebt oder nur gemeinsam mit dem Hund aktiv sein möchte, wichtig sind vor allem zwei Dinge: Eine solide Grundausbildung und das richtige Maß an Motivation. Wie man genau dies mit seinem Hund erreicht, möchte der dritte Band aus der "Blauerhund® Konzept"-Reihe vermitteln. Bei diesem Konzept geht es darum, den Hund so zu trainieren, dass das Ausführen der Übung selbstbelohnend, also lustvoll für den Vierbeiner wird. Dies wird mit dem passenden Einsatz von Clicker, Lob, Futter- und Spielbelohnung erreicht. Hundesportliches Training nach dem Blauerhund®-Konzept berücksichtigt die emotionalen Eigenarten des Hundes, um ihn zu einem zuverlässigen und leidenschaftlichen Sportler zu machen. Dabei ist der wesentliche Punkt, je nach Veranlagung und Trainingsfortschritt, das richtige Maß an Erregung im Hund zu bewirken.
