Negotiation is part of every human encounter, and most of us do it badly. Whether dealing with family, a business, or diplomacy, people often fail to meet their goals in every country and context. They focus on power and ´´win-win” instead of relationships and perceptions. They don’t find enough things to trade. They think others should be rational when they should be dealing with emotions. They get distracted from their goals. In this revolutionary book, leading negotiation practitioner and professor Stuart Diamond draws on the research and practice of 30,000 people he has taught and advised in 45 countries over two decades to outline specific, practical and better ways to deal with others. They range from country and corporate leaders to administrative assistants, lawyers, housewives, students, and laborers. To this he adds his 40-year experience as an executive, Harvard-trained attorney, and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist. Getting More is based on Professor Diamond’s award-winning negotiations course at The Wharton Business School, where it has been the most sought-after course by students for 13 years. It contains a powerful toolkit that can be used in any situation: with kids and jobs, travel and shopping, business, politics, relationships, cultures, partners and competitors. The advice is addressed through the stories of hundreds of people who have used Diamond’s tools with great success. A 20% savings on an item already on sale. An extra $300 million profit in a business. A woman from India getting out of her own arranged marriage. A four-year-old willingly brushing his teeth and going to bed. Instead of ´´win-win”, it sometimes makes more sense to lose today to get more tomorrow. The use of power, Diamond cautions, too often causes retaliation, harms relationships, and costs credibility. Walking out is almost never as good as understanding the other person’s perceptions and fixing the problem... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Marc Cashman.

Are you tired of feeling worn out, sick, and overweight? Why is it that we experience weight gain, fatigue, aches and pains, illnesses, and memory loss as we get older? While these ailments do become more common in our 30s and 40s, they aren´t inevitable. In fact, we are perfectly capable of remaining young, slim, and vigorous - and our brains can absolutely stay clear and sharp - if we give them what they need. What´s that? The right foods, plenty of sleep, and the healthy movement our bodies are craving. The problem is that most of us don´t do that. We don´t realize what our bodies need, so we eat the wrong foods, skimp on sleep, and deprive our bodies of the movement they crave. Overwhelmed by the stresses and the pressures of our lives, we take a host of prescriptions, never realizing how they might be disrupting our body´s innate ability to heal. Most insidious of all, many of us lack the personal support and the community that we need to feel fully alive. Instead, we buy into the myth that age means decline. Best-selling author and internationally recognized expert in integrative and functional medicine, Dr. Frank Lipman shares the 10 key steps to live your best life!

Everyone wants to live a life full of meaning, purpose, and success. Yet, you clutter your mind with limiting thoughts of can´t do this, can´t do that, it´s too high, too far, too great to achieve. Divided into two sections, "Subliminal Affirmations" and "Laws of Attraction Guide"; this audiobook will show that your subconscious is the most powerful tool to help alter your life in a positive manner. Negative thoughts are like weeds that grow all the time without any nurturing, since it´s human nature to think of negative consequences. On the other hand, positive thoughts about health, love, wealth, success are hard to come by, and like everything worth fighting for in this life, they require a lot of nurture and care. The audiobook plans to give you exactly what you need: the means to stay positive through constant affirmations designed to help improve oneself, change bad behaviour, or channel the universe to attract good things in your life. Call it meditation or even self-hypnosis, but the principles stated in the audiobook actually work. It is proven that repetitive constructive affirmations attract positive energies in your life, and that desire is the first step towards achievement. Packed with subliminal affirmations, the audiobook shows that in order to attract opportunities that will improve your health, love life, or even wealth, all you need are few minutes a day to shift your mind through positive affirmations. You can choose to repeat them loud and proud, or they can be repeated in your mind during idle times such as while commuting or even while taking a shower. Think positive, be confident and change your life now by taking action and downloading this audiobook. Don´t be a pessimist and navigate away. You can´t achieve any success if your mindset is constantly plagued by negativity. Download this audiobook and improve your life! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Susan Smith.

The law of attraction is based on the idea that everything in the universe has a ´´polarity´´, meaning that everything - from the food you eat, to the people you talk to, to the things you say, to the things you think - contains an either positive or negative kind of energy. Notice that being with people who complain or rant a lot tends to make you feel bad, even though you´re not exactly experiencing what they´re going through - that´s the law of attraction working its magic. When you focus on negative stuff, then more negative stuff will happen to you. On the other hand, when you focus on positive stuff, then more positive stuff will happen to you. Fortunately, there is a way to manipulate the law of attraction and make it work for you: by changing your beliefs, using the power of positive affirmation. Positive affirmations give you a fresh pair of eyes to see the world and, therefore, give you courage to achieve a lot of things you never knew were possible. 1. Language: English.

A charity auction is always popular, but the lots will need to be spectacular.
