In a readily-accessible, easy-to-read format, this book presents useful hints, suggestions, anecdotes and lists that will help you to look within, identify, and ultimately achieve your personal and professional goals. From getting started with the actual physical space that is your office to the incorporation and financial establishment of your practice, to dealing with the most unexpected, unpredictable clients and their expectations and to planning for the unexpected, the answers are here. The straightforward "hands-on" approach makes reading simple, the inclusion of anecdotes adds realism and interest, the quick checks provide instant reminders and cues and the self-disclosure questions aid in self-understanding. All of the suggestions are grounded in practice. Some may be familiar to you already; some may be novel and unexpected. Sometimes, however, simple reminders or hints can be the most powerful and with that in mind, this book was written in an attempt to demystify some of the confusion and/or uncertainty surrounding the successful establishment and functioning of a private practice.

A revolutionary approach to overcoming perfectionism! A recent, randomized study—published by Mindfulness Journal—shows that Present Perfect is effective as a standalone intervention. The study found that those who had read the book experienced a statistically significant reduction of self-criticalness, a result that was still maintained at a six weeks follow-up (Wimberley, Mintz, & Suh, Mindfulness, Nov. 2015). While there's no doubt that setting high standards for yourself is a good thing, you've probably already noticed that perfectionism can come at a high price. And when you take steps to try to change, it's easy to be too hard on yourself and fall into the same traps that keep you feeling stressed and disappointed. This book presents a revolutionary approach to overcoming perfectionism—a way to transform your need for precision into self-acceptance, compassion, and love for each perfectly imperfect passing moment in our lives. In Present Perfect, you'll use the Buddhist psychology of mindfulness to learn to accept the present moment in all of its ordinary perfection. This book is filled with over 150 exercises and meditations that you can practice to become more flexible toward yourself and others without losing your love of a job well done. With this compassionate approach, you'll soon be able not only to accept life as it is, but also become more accepting and forgiving of yourself and others.

Angel H. Davis is not just a veteran marriage and family counselor who has seen God’s healing grace at work in those she’s counseled. She has been through a purging, rejuvenating storm in her own marriage and has survived to tell of the joy that comes in the morning. Strikingly personal and empathetic, Angel’s guidelines for personal and marriage growth demonstrate how remarkably God can change two people even if only one devotes him- or herself to doing marriage God’s way. Her book will help you discern the real enemy of your soul, how to change your marriage, and the way current trials set you up for future fulfillment. According to Angel, most marriages are neither a complete disaster nor “made in heaven.” They face tribulation that can tempt anyone at one time or another to jump ship, yet that is almost never the right course. So since you’re likely in a marriage that’s among the majority, this book is almost certainly for you, no matter what storm may be blowing through your married life.

Micklyn Lightbourne is passionate, dedicated and committed to seeing individuals get to where God has predestined them to go in their lives, hence he was motivated to write this book to encourage and help to focus the minds and hearts of individuals reminding them that time is too precious to waste, and if they have not wasted time already hopefully they will never have a desire to waste time in the future. Where you are now, is where you and I should be, there are a lot of individuals who should be further along in their lives in terms of accomplishments. He is one of them and thats why he was moving at record speed to make the most of the time he has left and encourages us all to do the same; He call it Spirit Time Acceleration. In April of 2011 Mr. Lightbourne resigned from his job as the most prestigious Butler in The Bahamas at a five star world class resort. He was on top of his A game winning the highest honor in the hospitality industry but he was also at the crossroads of life and the decision was which direction should he take now? Should he ride the wave of fame or should he move on to the next chapter of his life? He and his wife made the decision to start their very own hospitality business. Since making such a decision God has been opening doors they never thought were even there to be opened. God has brought out some gifts in me I never knew existed but all this happened when I found out the truth, the truth of knowing I was placed here with and for a purpose said Mr. Lightbourne. We can begin pursuing our purpose right now and if we need guidance, by reading this book we will get there. The writing of this book could no longer be prolonged because its intension is to help others put their lives in prospective. We have wasted a lot of Gods time and its time to redeem it. This book was written with the intention to convict people to hold themselves accountable and responsible for their own actions and short comings. To show how we can better our lives through daily soft skills and life skills practices and become productive leaders in our families, the work place, schools, the community and at church. We would never have to blame others for our short comings again. Once any individual comes to the realization that they are accountable for their own actions they would begin to see life differently. We have allowed time to overtake us and it has left us so far behind that we are now battling to get our lives where it should have been years ago. This book is centered around, getting the individual back to the foundation of their lives, to see themselves in control of their own destiny while fighting off the biggest enemy trying to stop them which is themselves, we must get out of our own way. Our Heavenly Father wants us to take our rightful positions on the earth and be good contributors and stewards. If we cant be good stewards over ourselves how can we be stewards over this awesome Earth. In the book of (Romans 8:22-24) (NIV) it reads We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Not only so but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we are saved. We have this awesome responsibility to take dominion over the earth but first things first, these nine steps to perfect a better you is an awesome start, we have to bring back the stepping stones of how to set and accomplish goals for our lives, have the right attitudes, maintain standards, be professionals, make right decisions, get along with each other, communicate, resolve conflicts and make the most of our time. I challenge you to allow this book to help transform your life through the application process because knowledge without application is useless. Mastering these steps would bring out the qualities that were lying dormant ins

That man is a social being is almost axiomatic. Our interpersonal relation ships can be sources of the most rewarding or the most painful of human experiences. To a large measure our accomplishments in life depend on the facility with which we interact with others-our social skill. The acquisition of social skills is, of course, a natural part of the overall socialization process. However, in many instances it becomes necessary or desirable to develop further an individual's social facilities. Such skill development is the topic of this book. Two major goals were kept in mind in the writing of this book. The first was to provide a conceptual framework within which to view social skills. Such a framework allows one to understand why it is important to develop social skills, and the effects that such skill development should have. If the reader has a thorough understanding of the concept of social skills and their development, it becomes possible to make appropriate innovations and adaptions to his or her own circumstances. Without such a framework, social-skills training becomes little more than a collection of disjointed techniques. Also, without a conceptual understanding, pro cedural innovations are difficult to incorporate into training.
