"If young adults could be guided in the right direction for a life journey of meaning and purpose we would be grooming the leaders of tomorrow for a better world. This book is the perfect guide.” —Deepak Chopra, MD, FACP, founder of the Chopra Center for Wellbeing What am I going to do for the rest of my life? For young people at a turning point—whether it’s facing the end of high school, college, graduate school, or just a dead-end job—this is a familiar question. Maybe they have the degree they wanted, but don’t know where to start in their job search. Maybe they’re still in the process of choosing a major, and given the range—from “Biochemistry” to “Adventure Education”—are lost in the options. Maybe they’re facing a mountain of debt, but don’t want to get locked into a job they hate. While other books might give advice on writing resumes or preparing for interviews, they only go so far. Young people want more than just another job—they want a life, and a meaningful one at that. Enter The Big Picture. Created by the leading authority on self-help research, and reviewed by over six hundred college students, Dr. Christine B. Whelan’s The Big Picture offers a guide to discover one’s talents, dreams, and desires that can then lead a person to not only a fulfilling career, but a fulfilling life. It guides young people to take a step back and look at the “big picture” of who they are, what they want, and why they’re here. Through quizzes and questionnaires which have been vetted by college students, Whelan guides the reader through “big picture” questions like, What are my talents—and how can I use those to help others and create meaning? How have my life experiences shaped who I am and what I can give? What do I value—and how can I be happy while being true to those values? Although there are endless books on finding a job, this is the first book that presents research-based and tested material to help young people answer the question, What am I going to do with my life? A great gift for a graduate or a guide for yourself, The Big Picture provides the resources needed to find—and live—a purposeful life.

Where are we? Who are we? Do our beliefs, hopes and dreams mean anything out there in the void? Can human purpose and meaning ever fit into a scientific worldview? Acclaimed award-winning author Sean Carroll brings his extraordinary intellect to bear on the realms of knowledge, the laws of nature and the most profound questions about life, death and our place in it all. In a dazzlingly unique presentation, Carroll takes us through the scientific revolution’s avalanche of discoveries, from Darwin and Einstein to the origins of life, consciousness and the universe itself. Delving into the way the world works at the quantum, cosmic and human levels, he reveals how human values relate to scientific reality. An extraordinary synthesis of cosmos-sprawling science and profound thought, The Big Picture is Carroll’s quest to explain our world. Destined to sit alongside the works of our greatest thinkers, from Stephen Hawking and Carl Sagan to Daniel Dennett and E. O. Wilson, this book shows that while our lives may be forever dwarfed by the immensity of the universe, they can be redeemed by our capacity to comprehend it and give it meaning.

In one of the most significant social trends of the new century, and the biggest transformation of the American workforce since the women's movement, members of the baby boom generation are inventing a new phase of work. Encore tells the stories of encore career pioneers who are not content, or affluent enough, to spend their next thirty years on a golf course. These men and women are moving beyond midlife careers yet refusing to phase out or fade away. As they search for a calling in the second half of life and focus on what matters most, these individuals stand to transform the nature of work in America. They also hold the potential to create a society that balances the joys and responsibilities of contribution across the generations—in other words, one that works better for all of us.

Years ago, Millman had the good fortune to be tutored by a number of mentors as mysterious and wise as his best-known teacher he called Socrates. One of those masters revealed to him (and a few other close discliples) a previously secret (and more accurate) method of numerological insight that bordered on psychic abilities, and in fact opened doorways to profound insight into the core issues at the heart of one's own life and the lives of others. Millman worked with this system for a decade, providing "spiritual law alignment" readings for countless people, before teaching this system to a relatively small group of people — and finally, the time came to write The Life You Were Born to Live. In this book he presents the method and revelations of The Life Purpose system, a modern method based on ancient wisdom that has helped hundreds of thousands to find new meaning, purpose and direction. The Life You Were Born to Live describes: • the thirty-seven paths of life • a precise method to determine your own life path and the paths of others • the core issues, innate talents and special needs related to each path, including areas of health, money and sexuality • guidelines for approaching a career consistent with your innate drives and abilities • the hidden purpose behind your own primary relationships • how to live in harmony with the cycles of you life • the key spiritual laws to help you understand your past, clarify your present, and empower your future.

In his grade school days, Ben Carson would hardly have been voted “most likely to become a famous surgeon.” His classmates had already given him another label: class dummy. Then a light clicked on for Ben—and a consuming passion for learning that catapulted him from “zero” test grades to a Yale scholarship, a pioneering role in modern medicine, and an influence that has extended from inner-city schools to corporate boardrooms and Washington corridors of power.What made the difference? Belief in his own potential, a commitment to education and making the most of his opportunities to learn, determination to make the world a better place, and faith in a God who knows no limits. Seeing the Big Picture.In The Big Picture, Ben Carson reveals the spiritual and philosophical foundations that undergird not just his dramatic career, but his approach to all of life. As in his best-selling Gifted Hands Dr. Carson shares colorful behind-the-scenes anecdotes. As in Think Big, he describes his practical principles for success. But The Big Picture is more than an autobiography or a personal-effectiveness manual. Rather, it’s a multifaceted look at the faith and vision that can see us all through hardship and failure, and stir us to bold exploits on behalf of something greater than ourselves.Dr. Carson begins by describing how he cultivated a Big-Picture perspective in his own life. Then he discusses ways to which all of us can approach parenting, family, business and friendships with the Big Picture in mind. Finally he looks at some pressing social issues—in particular, racial diversity, health care, and education—and considers how we ought to view them and what we should do about them in light of the Big Picture.Drawing on a vast array of experiences in roles ranging from trailblazing surgeon to public speaker, to husband and family man, Ben Carson shows how we can turn the course of our lives, out communities, our country, and our world by keeping the Big Picture always in mind.
