For more than twenty years, life coach and Steubenville speaker Paul George has helped fellow Catholics discover their purpose by searching themselves, reorganizing their priorities, and establishing a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. In his debut book, George invites you to pursue authentic happiness by surrendering your life to God and focusing on simple joys: daily prayer, a minimalist lifestyle, meaningful relationships, and an ongoing pursuit of God's will. Rethink Happiness is an essential self-help guide for all of us seeking to define our purpose in life. Chock-full of relatable stories about George and his life-long work in ministry, this book will help you discover that true happiness is found when we are totally oriented to God. With the same high energy he brings to his talks to youth and adult audiences, George will help you identify what you're truly looking for in life. The book opens with the idea that we are all searching for happiness but looking in the wrong places. We're hungry for God's love, but we're stuffing ourselves with shallow relationships and unchecked materialism. George invites you to rethink this formula, by first recognizing that it's God you want and then surrendering everything to him. Embedded in Catholic wisdom, truth, and the basic tenants of living a meaningful life, this book will teach you to reconsider your priorities in light of God's love; rethink how you spend your time and money; focus on building meaningful and healthy relationships; reject the dizzying pursuit of fame and prestige; seek self-worth in relationship with God; and serve God in the simplest way: by loving others. Rethink Happiness dares you to live differently. Satisfy your appetite for happiness once and for all by rooting yourself in God and opening to the joy only he can offer.

This book explores Goethe's ethics of happiness and the role of resignation within them. Prandi has carefully separated autobiographical material from literary expository of these themes in order to clarify the misunderstanding that has resulted from relying on Goethe's fictional works to document his personal ethical convictions. The book aims in part at working out in detail the usefulness of Spinoza's Ethics in evaluating ethical views expressed in poetry and fiction; and in part at correcting erroneous and confused ideas about Goethean resignation. Prandi studies the 'natural morality' Goethe developed and practiced, using Lucretius and Spinoza as models of influence. All three define the good as what makes people rationally happy; each has his own resignation model to offer. From a deep analysis of views on happiness and resignation, the author's discussion leads to some surprising new conclusions.

We desire to succeed in all our endeavors. There is nothing new in this. But, do we get what we want? There are some basic laws for human beings to achieve success. If we understand and apply them, we can ensure that most of our efforts meet with success. Every machine comes with a manual on how to operate it. When we were born, the almighty, our creator, did not provide a manual. “Friends, ignorance of the law of gravity does not mean that it will not work for you. In the same way, we have a “MANUAL”, but it is hidden. When we find it and follow these rules, we will get what we want in our lives at the right time.” This book throws light on the fundamental laws of success. Great efforts have been taken to collect and reproduce this information in simple terms. You can call it a spiritual success book, simplified for mass consumption.

In this powerful map to self-discovery, Alan Cohen draws on sources from Buddhism to the Bible, from Gandhi and Einstein to A Course In Miracles, sharing many of his own radiant moments of revelation on the spiritual path. He shows how we can let go of the past, overcome fear, and discover the power of love in our lives. Once we are engaged in the work of truly being ourselves, each challenge becomes an opportunity for growth, each choice a lesson in commitment, each relationship a renewal of God's work. Dare To Be Yourself will dramatically enlighten, empower, and enliven you as you awaken to life and love and the unique gifts that are yours to give the world. "Alan Cohen has a rare and precious quality. He inspires happiness, and the message itself is as pure as his heart." -- Hugh Prather
