When individuals are suffering through unpleasant or undesirable situations and circumstances, they are often unaware of how they participate in creating or re-creating their experience. In severe cases, there is an addiction to suffering. Frequently, my first attempt at offering suffering individuals another way of seeing their experience is met with fierce resistance, which I call "the fight to be right." Often people unwittingly fight to maintain ownership of the very limitations that cause their suffering. Unfortunately, while fighting for their limitations, most fail to realize this is not a fight they want to win. Rather than engage them in a mental or emotional sparring match, I ask one simple question: "What is your prayer?" When an individual seriously contemplates this question, stories about how pain and suffering should or can be tolerated begin to recede. The ego has very few arguments that can survive the power of an earnest and heartfelt prayer.

Life in the fast lane was yesterday. Today, we face the challenge of learning to live and work in digital time. Not only is the amount of change we must cope with growing exponentially, the rate of change is speeding up. This unprecedented transformation offers unprecedented opportunities, but few people and even fewer organizations are equipped to take advantage of it. We don’t know how to operate, let alone thrive, at warp speed, and the resulting stress is enormous. Our personal lives are in turmoil. There never seems to be enough time, money, or energy. Most marriages still end in divorce, kids act out in dangerous ways, and parents feel increasingly frustrated and exhausted. Stress-related illnesses are epidemic: Many of us, including children, live with attention disorders, antidepressants are common as aspirin, and we are plagued by a gnawing sense of purposelessness. At work, we are expected to do more with less and prove ourselves on a daily basis. Managers struggle to cope with new technologies, shifting markets, cutthroat competition, shrinking budgets, and employees who are neither loyal nor engaged. Get Over It and Get On With It offers insight into the status quo and a proven-effective approach to change—positive, self-directed change. Designed to be as useful to a Fortune 500 CEO as to a novice realtor, as relevant to a team of professional athletes as to a single mom, its principles are both timeless and leading edge, and its methods can be used by anyone, anywhere. In everyday language, using examples from everyday life, Jim Madrid explains how to create more connection and energy, success and strength, abundance and happiness in your personal life, family, company or community. Get Over It and Get On With It now makes this important and valuable information available to everyone.

"Some days you're the bug. Some days you're the windshield." --Price Cobb Have some good advice for bad times.

New York Times best-selling author Iyanla Vanzant recounts the last decade of her life and the spiritual lessons learned—from the price of success during her meteoric rise as a TV celebrity on Oprah, the Iyanla TV show (produced by Barbara Walters), to the dissolution of her marriage and her daughter’s 15 months of illness and death on Christmas day. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Iyanla shares why everything we need to learn is reflected in our relationships and the strength and wisdom she has gained by supporting others in their journeys to make sense out of the puzzle pieces of their lives.
Unity. Jesus prayed that his followers would experience it. The apostles worked hard to achieve and maintain it. Christians today rarely enjoy it. God's desire is for our churches, marriages, families, and interpersonal relationships to be characterized by unity and agreement. But all too often, strife and discord prevail instead-why? Because we fail to realize that our differences-be they doctrinal debates, generational clashes, or other personal preferences-don't have to create division. Unity and unison are two entirely different things. The key to practicing biblical unity is to "build a bridge and get over it!" Drawing insight from key passages of Scripture as well as years of leading a dynamic and diverse congregation, this author explains in very practical ways how we can improve our relationships and deal constructively with our differences and disagreements as followers of Christ. Paul Earl Sheppard has been senior pastor of Abundant Life Christian Fellowship in Mountain View, California since 1989. Under Paul's visionary leadership, this church has become one of the largest and most racially diverse congregations in northern California. He serves as speaker for Enduring Truth, a popular daily radio program heard on stations and networks around the country. A native of Philadelphia, Paul has studied at the University of Pennsylvania, the Center for Urban Theological Studies, and the Southern California School of Ministry. He holds a Master's degree in Ministry and a Doctorate of Divinity. Paul sits on the board of directors of NRB (National Religious Broadcasters) and is a highly sought after speaker and conference leader. He was married to his wife, Meredith, in May 1982. They have two adult children, Alicia and Aaron.

Get Over It! is a tool and a process that offers readers a path to dominion over their most powerful asset: their mind. In today’s turbulent climate, it can be challenging to stay on top of what is going on around us day-to-day, such as economic shifts, societal breakdowns, and lifestyle changes. We have become disconnected from our personal power, the intuitive light created by our autonomous thoughts. Through Get Over It!, a prayer book with a therapeutic underpinning, Iyanla offers practical tools based on the scientific theory of neuroplasticity, so we can transmute the dominant negative thought patterns (DNTPs) that threaten our sanity and spirituality on a daily basis. In Get Over It!, Iyanla identifies 42 common DNTPs and breaks them down into three key elements: 1. The train of thought that produces the pattern 2. A prayer and affirmation to neutralize the pattern 3. Self-directed spiritual practices (including meditations) that support the neutralization of the pattern in the mind and bod Through becoming aware of and neutralizing our DNTPs, we will up our “wattage”: our ability to see and live beyond the influences and turbulence of our external environment.
GET OVER IT is a resource to help people feel more grounded in their ability to face the difficulties in their lives. It?s about facing up to the past and, well, getting over it. As Bev puts it: ?The past can be a prison which traps us into the illusion that life is hard, that we are meant to suffer and that our fate is out of our hands. One day I decided that this was an extra burden that I could live without.?
