<b><b>The #1聽<i>New York Times</i>聽bestseller.聽</b>1 million copies sold!<br /><br /><b>Don鈥檛 miss the hourlong Netflix special聽<i>Bren茅 Brown: The Call to Courage</i>!</b><br /><br />From thought leader Bren茅 Brown, a transformative new vision for the way we lead, love, work, parent, and educate that teaches us the power of vulnerability.</b><br />聽<br /> <i>鈥淚t is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while <b>daring greatly.</b>鈥濃€?lt;/i>Theodore Roosevelt<br /><br />Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable or to dare greatly. Based on twelve years of pioneering research, Bren茅 Brown聽PhD, LMSW, dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and argues that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.<br /><br />Brown explains how vulnerability is both the core of difficult emotions like fear, grief, and disappointment, <i>and</i> the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, empathy, innovation, and creativity. She writes: 鈥淲hen we shut ourselves off from vulnerability, we distance ourselves from the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives.鈥?lt;br /><br /> <i>Daring Greatly</i> is not about winning or losing. It鈥檚 about courage. In a world where 鈥渘ever enough鈥?dominates and feeling afraid has become second nature, vulnerability is subversive. Uncomfortable. It鈥檚 even a little dangerous at times. And, without question, putting ourselves out there means there鈥檚 a far greater risk of getting criticized or feeling hurt. But when we step back and examine our lives, we will find that nothing is as uncomfortable, dangerous, and hurtful as standing on the outside of our lives looking in and wondering what it would be like if we had the courage to step into the arena鈥攚hether it鈥檚 a new relationship, an important meeting, the creative process, or a difficult family conversation. <i>Daring Greatly</i> is a practice and a powerful new vision for letting ourselves be seen.

<em>A Little Book about Big Change</em><br /><br />We all want the same things. We want to live a life of purpose and meaning. We want to leave a legacy for our children and grandchildren. We want to leave the world a better place. And yet we spend so much time wringing our hands over what鈥檚 wrong and not nearly enough time fixing those things within our control.<br /><br />John Kasich has walked the corridors of power both in the politics, as a former leader of Congress, governor of Ohio, presidential candidate, and in the private sector, as an in-demand public speaker, best-selling author and a strategic advisor to businesses and large non-profits. Yet he鈥檚 seen that the most powerful movements have started from the bottom up. Rather than waiting on Washington, the solutions happen once we become leaders in our own lives and communities. The strength and resilience of our nation lies in each of us. That鈥檚 what this book is about.<br /><br />In <em>It鈥檚 Up to Us</em>, Kasich shares the ten little ways we each can bring about big change. Taken together, they chart a path for each to follow as we look to live a life bigger than ourselves. Taken one-by-one, they can help to lift us from a place of outrage or complacency or helplessness and move us closer to our shared American dream.

<b>Based on a Navy SEAL's inspiring graduation speech, this #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestseller of powerful life lessons "should be read by every leader in America" (<i>Wall Street Journal</i>).</b><i><br />If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed.</i><br /><br /><i></i>On May 17, 2014, Admiral William H. McRaven addressed the graduating class of the University of Texas at Austin on their Commencement day. Taking inspiration from the university's slogan, "What starts here changes the world," he shared the ten principles he learned during Navy Seal training that helped him overcome challenges not only in his training and long Naval career, but also throughout his life; and he explained how anyone can use these basic lessons to change themselves-and the world-for the better.<br /><br />Admiral McRaven's original speech went viral with over 10 million views. Building on the core tenets laid out in his speech, McRaven now recounts tales from his own life and from those of people he encountered during his military service who dealt with hardship and made tough decisions with determination, compassion, honor, and courage. Told with great humility and optimism, this timeless book provides simple wisdom, practical advice, and words of encouragement that will inspire readers to achieve <i>more</i>, even in life's darkest moments. <br /><strong>"Powerful." --<em>USA Today</em></strong><br /><br /><strong>"Full of captivating personal anecdotes from inside the national security vault." --<em>Washington Post</em></strong><br /><br /><strong><em>"</em>Superb, smart, and succinct." --<em>Forbes</em></strong>
