Flourish Excerpt :

From the bestselling author of Learned Optimism and Authentic Happiness comes “a relentlessly optimistic guidebook on finding and securing individual happiness” (Kirkus Reviews). With this unprecedented promise, internationally esteemed psychologist Martin Seligman begins Flourish, his first book in ten years—and the first to present his dynamic new concept of what well-being really is. Traditionally, the goal of psychology has been to relieve human suffering, but the goal of the Positive Psychology movement, which Dr. Seligman has led for fifteen years, is different—it’s about actually raising the bar for the human condition. Flourish builds on Dr. Seligman’s game-changing work on optimism, motivation, and character to show how to get the most out of life, unveiling an electrifying new theory of what makes a good life—for individuals, for communities, and for nations. In a fascinating evolution of thought and practice, Flourish refines what Positive Psychology is all about. While certainly a part of well-being, happiness alone doesn’t give life meaning. Seligman now asks, What is it that enables you to cultivate your talents, to build deep, lasting relationships with others, to feel pleasure, and to contribute meaningfully to the world? In a word, what is it that allows you to flourish? “Well-being” takes the stage front and center, and Happiness (or Positive Emotion) becomes one of the five pillars of Positive Psychology, along with Engagement, Relationships, Meaning, and Accomplishment—or PERMA, the permanent building blocks for a life of profound fulfillment. Thought-provoking in its implications for education, economics, therapy, medicine, and public policy—the very fabric of society—Flourish tells inspiring stories of Positive Psychology in action, including how the entire U.S. Army is now trained in emotional resilience; how innovative schools can educate for fulfillment in life and not just for workplace success; and how corporation

Flourish Excerpt :

What Keeps Us from Flourishing? We all long to live out our faith with daily joy, but so often that joy eludes us. Why is that? More often than we realize, it’s because we’ve absorbed messages that curve us in on ourselves. These messages have even crept into the church, disguised as truth. It’s time we learn to discern teaching that’s toxic from that which is true and pure. Flourish equips us with tools to identify the lies that come at us about where to find real life. As we dig deep into what God says in his Word, we will learn to discern the worldly influences that threaten to warp our understanding of what it really means to be a Christian, and emerge with a faith that flourishes—full of the abundant life Jesus promises.

To Flourish Or Destruct Excerpt :

Christian Smith is a force to conjure with in sociology, both in its empirical forays (studies of youth and religious life) and in its higher reaches of theory, where his work sets out to move culture, morality, and identity to the center of social thought. We published his 2011 book, What Is a Person?, to critical plaudits and healthy sales. Striking a middle path between extremes of positivist science and relativism, Smith’s theory of personhood teased out how we can know what is good in personal and social life, and what sociology can tell us about human rights and dignity. To Flourish or Destruct is a sequel. It builds on the earlier book to explore the question of human motivations for action. In arguing for a sociological turn in a more humanist direction, he sets up a scaffolding for a philosophy of moral realism that makes human flourishing (the realization of basic human goods) a centerpiece of social science. Smith’s Aristotelian account of flourishing argues that genuinely investing in the flourishing of other people is a necessary condition for personal flourishing--in short, learning to love others. The guiding assumption is that flourishing is the natural aim of all human life. He then turns to the question of evil (the absence or privation of what is good), with extended consideration of Stalin and Hitler and totalitarianism in general, in contrast to his inventory of basic human goods, motivations, and interests. The title poses the question: will I flourish or will I destruct? On which path is my life moving?

What do you do when all your efforts yield zero or minimal results? How do you come out of a situation of financial dryness? There is hope in God. In this book, the author discusses biblical principles that have been proven to reverse dryness and bring about abundance in all areas of life. In My Desert Will Flourish, the author uses water as a symbol of the word of God and explains the importance of it in a believer's life. She also discusses how one should not just know the word of God, but also confess it as there is power waiting to be released in the word of God. Also, the importance of having a vision and strong belief in God and self is discussed in this book. The book also encourages you not to be put off by a current situation of dryness. Rather, the author gives you a charge to approach your situation by time-tested biblical principles that have been proven to bring about abundance in all areas of life.

Failure to Flourish Excerpt :

Exploring the connection between families and inequality, Failure to Flourish: How Law Undermines Family Relationships argues that the legal regulation of families stands fundamentally at odds with the needs of families. Strong, stable, positive relationships are essential for both individuals and society to flourish, but from transportation policy to the criminal justice system, and from divorce rules to the child welfare system, the legal system makes it harder for parents to provide children with these kinds of relationships, exacerbating the growing inequality in America. Failure to Flourish contends that we must re-orient the legal system to help families avoid crises and, when conflicts arise, intervene in a manner that heals relationships. To understand how wrong our family law system has gone and what we need to repair it, Failure to Flourish takes us from ancient Greece to cutting-edge psychological research, and from the chaotic corridors of local family courts to a quiet revolution under way in how services are provided to families in need. Incorporating the latest insights of positive psychology and social science research, the book sets forth a new, more emotionally intelligent vision for a legal system that not only resolves conflict but actively encourages the healthy relationships that are at the core of a stable society.

The Beast of Lake Flourish Excerpt :

This story follows two young critical care nurses, their friends and family, their loves and the patients they care for. The self-described ‘BFF's', although polar opposites, find themselves caring for their beautiful dance instructor (Eve) after she is violently assaulted and then become the obsession of her attacker. They must fight to save her life as well as their own. Eve's attack brings back memories of a case from six years ago. A mother and daughter went missing and were never to be found. Due to similarities, the agents re-open that case. Determined to find Eve's assailant (and the missing mother/daughter), the agents embark on a hunt that takes many sharp turns. Beasts come in all forms and lurk in infinite darkness. The town's ‘Beast' becomes obsessed with Davia and Holly, and stalks them at work and home. Meanwhile, a young teen is being held captive and hidden in a clandestine cellar. June Lovekin, the town's beloved author wrote, ‘The Magical Fairies of Lake Flourish', which quickly made her famous. Her book is about a community of magical fairies. The princess fairy ‘Violet' clips her wing on a branch and begins falling toward the lake. She must travel miles to find the special glue that will repair her broken wing, but first (and ironically) she too must get past ‘the Beast'. The captive teen lives vicariously through Princess Violet. After all, Violet's life is much more exciting and magical than hers in captivity. There are many stories intertwined inside this novel. The unique characters each have their own secrets and stories to tell (stories of love, passion, acceptance, courage and determination). This story will keep you at the edge of your seat, while bringing you tears of laughter and joy and a yearning for more.
