"In his newest work, Jake Ducey outlines his plan for the next generation to take control of their futures and make money doing what they love. Imagine a world where almost everyone wakes up inspired to go to work. They are more productive, stimulated, and profitable than ever. They feel valued during the day and return home feeling accomplished and fulfilled at night. Jake Ducey argues that the groundbreaking difference between mediocrity and success has little to do with skills and brand recognition. It's about how we engage with those around us and how we broadcast--both inwardly and outwardly--our care, appreciation, and personality to the world. Billed as the "first millennial motivational speaker," Jake Ducey is the epitome of practicing what he preaches. His vision for the future is positive and accessible to a young audience, and his message is important for a generation often accused of terminal ennui. In the vein of classic works such as Think and Grow Rich and Chicken Soup for the Soul, this book explores Jake's simple plan, which can be used by anyone to bring more purpose, happiness, and riches into their lives"--

Without a map, nineteen-year-old Jake Ducey leaves behind a drug-filled life and college basketball scholarship to wander the world and prove we can find our dreams by following our heart. On the outskirts of civilization, often uncertain, without money and near death, he finds that everything he was seeking in the world was within him the whole time. Journeying from Guatemala to Australia, Indonesia to Thailand, and ending with fourteen days of silent meditation, he shows that our destiny is in reach if we only look within ourselves first.

Kym Gold’s mantra “never settle for a no, always look for a yes” is what led her to co-create True Religion Brand Jeans, a major retail clothing company which she sold for close to a billion dollars in 2013. In Gold Standard, she finally gives her side of the story of how the once fledgling jeans company that nobody wanted, went on to become a giant, revolutionizing player in the fashion industry. As having to constantly arm herself in the “boys club” world of the fickle fashion business, Kym went from being one of True Religion’s majority shareholders, and their lead female clothing designer, to being both served divorce papers by her partner, and having her company ripped from under her, within an hour, on Valentine’s Day in 2007. Since then she has climbed back up the ladder and catapulted into the coveted 1% of the richest Americans. In Gold Standard, Kym’s savvy business and fashion branding experience of thirty years gives a behind the scenes look into the always changing fashion industry. It also mixes in her compelling personal journey, a compassionate view for women under the pressures of holding together a career, finances, family and trying to balance it all. Kym motivates readers to throw the gold gloves on and put up a fight.

Richer nations are happier, yet economic growth doesn't increase happiness. This paradox is explained by the Hidden Wealth of Nations - the extent to which citizens get along with other independently drives both economic growth and well-being. Much of this hidden wealth is expressed in everyday ways, such as our common values, the way we look after our children and elderly, or whether we trust and help strangers. It is a hidden dimension of inequality, and helps to explain why governments have found it so hard to reduce gaps in society. There are also deep cracks in this hidden wealth, in the form of our rising fears of crime, immigration and terror. Using a rich variety of international comparisons and new analysis, the book explores what is happening in contemporary societies from value change to the changing role of governments, and offers suggestions about what policymakers and citizens can do about it.

Happiness is something everyone desires. Yet how to find happiness–or even if we deserve to–remains a mystery. Still more mysterious is the secret to a lasting happiness that cannot be taken away. In The Ultimate Happiness Prescription, bestselling author Deepak Chopra shows us seven keys to uncover the true secrets of joy in the most difficult times. The goal of life is the expansion of happiness, he contends. But in today’s demanding world, that goal seems elusive, if not impossibly out of reach. Society reinforces the belief that fulfillment comes from achieving success, wealth, and good relationships. Yet Chopra tells us that the opposite is true: all success in life is the by-product of happiness, not the cause. So what is the cause? The Ultimate Happiness Prescription shares spiritual principles for a life based on a sense of your “true self” lying beyond the ebb and flow of daily living. Simple daily exercises lead to eliminating the root causes of unhappiness and letting a deeper level of bliss unfold. After all avenues to happiness have been explored and exhausted, only one path is left: the journey to enlightenment. In The Ultimate Happiness Prescription, the daunting and exotic challenge of finding enlightenment becomes accessible step by step. We are taken on an inspiring journey to the true self, the only place untouched by trouble and misfortune. On the way we learn the secrets for living mindfully and with effortless spontaneity. Now happiness is no longer hostage to external events but an experience we carry with us always. As Chopra inspiringly concludes, “Everything we fear in the world and want to change can be transformed through happiness, the simplest desire we have, and also the most profound.” From the Hardcover edition.
