If the Job You Have Isn't the Life You Want

By Mike Lewis

  • Paperback
  • £9.99

A collection of real-life stories from those who have chosen to defy the status quo and take a leap of faith to pursue a passion - shared to inspire others who feel disillusioned with their lives and are ready for change.

If you're at a crossroads, this is the book you need to read to begin chasing your dreams. Includes a foreword by Sheryl Sandberg.

Do you have a little voice in your head telling you to pursue the thing you love? Leaving a comfortable job to pursue a passion is a brave, bold move - but it's far from impossible. In this inspiring read When to Jump founder Mike Lewis has curated a community of people to share their stories about taking the leap into the unknown - people from all walks of life who left the safe inertia of their own circumstances to try and do what they really wanted to be doing. These are empowering, compelling tales about taking risks and embracing fear.

Forget what you should be doing, what do you want to be doing? What do you love doing? When to Jump will show you that starting something different is possible. Nothing will change unless you make the change - the journey starts here...

Mike has recently been awarded the Goldman Sachs accolade '100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs'.

Anxiety is Your Superpower

Wendy Suzuki
Authors:
Wendy Suzuki

We live in an age of anxiety. Like an omnipresent yet invisible odour you've grown used to, anxiety has become a constant condition, a fact of life, and a distraction that undermines our quality of life. Dr Wendy Suzuki's ground-breaking research will show us that science tells us a very different story: yes, anxiety is unpleasant - it's meant to be - and in the debilitating extreme, what Wendy will call 'bad anxiety', it's destructive. But most of the anxiety that humans feel is essential - not only to survival, but for higher brain functions formerly thought to be put on hold during anxious moments, Wendy will provide two broad categories of neuroscience-based hacks for harnessing anxiety and facing it head-on. The first will help address and calm anxiety so that you can enjoy the productivity you will experience, and the second grouping of brain science hacks will enable readers to channel anxious feelings into six uses for good anxiety - from productivity, increased emotional intelligence and focus to creativity and confidence. Through Wendy's unique perspective as a neuroscientist, she will teach us how to flip anxiety on its head and offer a counterintuitive lens through which to understand how anxiety manifests in our everyday lives. The book will introduce a taboo breaking slant on anxiety: we will learn how it can be good for us and that once we learn how to play it at its own game, it can become our superpower!

'This ground-breaking, first-of-its-kind book is not only destined to become the beauty bible for women of colour everywhere, it is also a significant, relevant and influential voice in the conversation around inclusivity. Essential reading' Edward Enninful, Editor-in-Chief, Vogue UKThe idea for Palette came to Vogue Contributing Beauty Editor Funmi Fetto after years of being asked by friends, family and strangers on the street for advice on products suitable for women of colour, who often find themselves excluded from mainstream beauty coverage. Following on from her career in journalism where she has extended the beauty conversation in publications such as the Observer - for whom she writes a weekly column - and written in an honest, elegant and engaging style, Fetto covers all the hair, skincare, makeup and body products available today which really work for women of colour.

The Memory Code

Alex Loyd
Authors:
Alex Loyd

Every one of us is the product of our past experiences. Good or bad, everything we do is informed by our memories - or more accurately, what we take away from those memories. But what if you could go back and rewrite the lessons of the past? What if you could turn a road block into a springboard? What if you could change your behaviour by changing your memories?Maybe it sounds too futuristic to be real, but it's both real and possible. Our past doesn't have to dictate our future. Losing weight, ending addiction, improving relationships, improving careers - you can really change these behaviours by altering your memories. In his groundbreaking new book The Memory Code, bestselling author Dr. Alexander Loyd teaches you how, revealing techniques he's been developing for more than 16 years.When we have a negative experience, we develop coping mechanisms to avoid that experience in the future. That can lead to behaviours like overeating, substance abuse, or poor lifestyle choices. By turning negative memories into positive ones, we can change the behaviours at the root of our problems. This process, called memory re-engineering, involves teaching our brains to re-imagine and re-code certain memories that trigger negative associations and the avoidance and coping mechanisms we've developed to deal with them. It means teaching ourselves to rethink those internal images so that instead of producing fear, anxiety and other negative emotions, they produce love, peace and positive associations.

Anyway

Kent M Keith
Authors:
Kent M Keith

People are illogical, unreasonable and self-centred. Love them anyway.If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish motives. Do good anyway.These commandments were first written down by Kent M. Keith for student leaders in the 1960s. Over the following years, they spread via word-of-mouth and became greatly valued - adopted by people far and wide. Now, for the first time, Keith's inspiring commandments appear in this life-changing book, with each principle illustrated with inspiring stories from his own life, as well as classic examples from history. They offer a way of living far removed from the lifestyle that strives for the popular symbols of success: wealth, power and fame. Instead, these ten rational principles focus on the enriching personal meaning that comes through living our lives selflessly and without recognition. Through accepting the Paradoxical Commandments and the paradoxical life, we are each truly free to be who we are really meant to be.

Ambition Redefined

Kathryn Sollmann
Authors:
Kathryn Sollmann

It's time to acknowledge that not all working women are interested in climbing the corporate ladder or securing the corner office. Most want and need flexible, less life-consuming work to accommodate their real lives, and it's not weak, lacking ambition or letting down the sisterhood to pursue professional fulfillment and financial security through less lofty, or headline-making ways.Eye-opening and practical, Ambition Redefined is a welcome alternative to 'women's business books'. Sollmann calls it like it is: everyday women want and need flexible work that allows them to unapologetically pursue their own brand of ambition and success. She shows them how without sacrificing themselves, their careers or their families. Armed with practical insights and tools, readers will be empowered to go after opportunities beyond traditional definitions of work, career and success. They will learn why they should never leave the workforce, how to make a case for flexibility in a current full-time job, how to find flexible employers, industries and job functions and how to return to work after time away raising children or caring for elderly parents.
