Readers discover how to build a solid foundation in their inner man to weather the storms of life and turn those difficulties around as stepping stones for their future success. Dr. Don Shorter shares through extensive personal experience and scriptural principles that believers can move into a rewarding life through the Word of God. Opposition should not be a stopping point for believers, but another chance for God to show Himself strong on their behalf. By removing obstacles and hindrances through making simple adjustments, readers will be on their way to success. They will discover a winner's lifestyle of talking success, believing they are successful, and living like a winner. More than just another motivational book, Dr. Shorter reveals the importance of fighting the fight of faith in your thought life. By cultivating positive thoughts uncovered in God's Word, readers will renew their minds to the principles of a winner's lifestyle. Shorter gives inspiration and sound biblical advice to win in life much like John Maxwell's book, Today Matters. Where Maxwell encourages readers to focus on 12 principles on a daily basis for success, Shorter simplifies this process by giving readers spiritual principles and instruction on how to be led by the spirit of God in day to day decisions.

Winning Against the Odds tells the fascinating, eccentric story of one of England's most fascinating and eccentric men. Stuart Wheeler went to Eton and Oxford. He was an officer in the Welsh Guards, a barrister, an investment banker and a major donor to the Conservative Party. You might think that he has led a life of impeccably conformist upper-class respectability. You'd be wrong. For Wheeler is also an illegitimate child adopted at the age of two, a maverick businessman who made his fortune on the back of 'the most brilliant idea that anyone had had of his generation' and a devoted gambler who has been thrown out of more than one Las Vegas casino. He played cards with Lord Lucan two nights before his infamous disappearance, effectively invented spread-betting with the creation in 1974 of IG Index and gave William Hague's Conservatives £5 million (still the biggest political donation in British history) before being expelled from the Tories, joining UKIP and becoming a key figure in Vote Leave during the Brexit referendum campaign. Forthright, principled and always entertaining, Winning Against the Odds is a story of bets won and lost, of outrageous personalities and dramatic events, and of a singular mind that engages with the world around it in a completely unique and compelling way.

The God Gametes theory is a refreshing look at what may be both the meaning of life and the reason for its creation. It argues that life on earth and in fact our human consciousness, are universal entities. A model is presented that assumes our universe is a tiny part of a multiverse, arguing that the multiverse is a hierarchical structure, each level a reproductive system of intelligent living systems on the next higher level. We take a fictional look at our parent species on that next higher level to find they are far more complex creatures than us but their universe is older and will soon run out of fuel, to then die. Parent species know that to preserve their life and the billions of years of heritage they created they must reproduce on a lower multiverse level. This, we believe, is why humans have developed many features such as a large brain that make our survival on earth more difficult. Yet these features have evolved because they are needed by the reproductive system of the parent species.

Playing to Win is a handbook for women who want to be successful. Karren Brady did it. At 23 she took over as Managing Director of Birmingham City Football Club, becoming the youngest ever female Managing Director of a UK PLC when it floated in 1997. Although the club was the "football equivalent of a rubbish dump" and women were barely even seen on the terraces in the early 90s, Karren Brady persuaded her backers to acquire the club and single-mindedly revolutionised it, clearing the debt, taking Birmingham City into the Premier League and transforming it into a viable business. How did she do it? How did a 23-year-old woman with little previous experience at this level of management walk into a man?s world and achieve such success? In Playing to Win, she reveals her secrets and shares with other women the techniques they can adopt to succeed in their own lives, on their own terms. Her ten motivational rules are self-help classics: ambition, determination, courage, charm, hard work, attitude, humour, confidence, focus and communication. Playing to Win shows women how to grow in each of these areas and achieve the success they dream of. And like all great self-help, her principles apply across all areas of experience - work and personal life. Playing to Win is a handbook for success in any situation. Moving from Karren?s story, how she has transformed a business and maintained a full and stable personal life, to a chapter-by-chapter study of the ten principles successful women need to adopt, Playing to Win is essential reading for women who want to have it all.

'Powerful and profound.' - Matthew Syed 'Anyone interested in motivation should read this book and think deeply.’ - Margaret Heffernan ***Selected as one of the Financial Times's Best Business Books of 2020!*** In this fascinating examination of our widespread obsession with winning, Cath Bishop draws on her personal experience of high-performance environments to trace the idea of winning through history, language and thought to explore how it has come to be a defining concept in fields from sport to business, from politics to education. Faced with the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century, Cath offers a new, broader approach – The Long Win. Cath competed as a rower at three Olympic Games, becoming the first British woman to win the World Championships and an Olympic medal in the coxless pairs event. As a senior diplomat, Cath worked on policy and negotiations, specializing in stabilization policy for conflict-affected parts of the world. In business, Cath has acted as a coach and consultant, advising on team and leadership development and organizational culture, and teaches on the Executive Education Faculty at the Judge Business School, Cambridge University. In this book she brings that extraordinary mix of experience to examine what winning has come to mean to society and to us as individuals and offers a fresh perspective on how we might redefine success – personal and professional - for the longer-term. ‘Looking at life from a different point of view is a rare skill. Built on in-depth research and broad experience as well as original thought, this book will change your outlook on everything.’ - Clare Balding OBE ‘This book is so relevant, timely and exciting for any person or organization wanting to investigate what success means to them. It couldn’t be a more relevant book right now and Cath’s exceptional ability in so many areas of life make it a gripping read with a lot of key takeaways whatever your area of interest. I wish every leader could immediately read this book as the world would be a better place if they did!’ - Goldie Sayers, Olympic Medallist in the Javelin, Coach ‘I love this book. It is a must-read for educators, business executives, policy makers, politicians and indeed anyone who wants to understand why we need a new narrative around winning and success. We need a lot more Long-Win Thinking in our homes, businesses and institutions and Cath’s book is the place to go to find out why – and how we get there.’ - Dame Helena Morrissey
