  • Goals is one of the most important books ever published at Simple Truths because it is about a very important subject – the power of goals is the key to achieving success.
    This book will guide you through the necessary steps to bring your goals into focus. Use as a guide for yourself or to set team goals in the workplace.

If you were to ask experts to select the #1 key to success, most would say clearly defined goals. Without goals, your dreams will not become a reality. Gary Ryan Blair is considered an expert on the topic of goals. For the last 20 years, his 14 books and training materials on goals have been used by more than 80,000 organisations and 4,000,000 employees world-wide. He teaches that your life will not go according to plan if you don’t have a plan.

Achieving a goal is like opening a combination lock. You need the correct numbers in the correct right, left, right sequence. There are thousands of possible combinations; and if you are aware of the settings but not the sequence, your efforts will prove futile.
The Ten Rules of Goal Setting is the combination that opens the lock of success. Each rule is one piece of the combination; each seamlessly integrates with the other nine; each one counts!

“We first make our habits, and then our habits make us.”
John Dryden

Habits begin and manifest deep in the mind and they can be friends or foes. Good habits can make our lives easier, helping us to do the more mundane things of life without thinking about them, like automatically depositing your paycheck.
But, as all of us know all too well, habits can also be destructive…to our health, to our finances, to our relationships. It’s why we struggle with losing weight, paying off our credit cards or quitting smoking…to name a few “bad habits.”
Whether they are a positive force in our lives or obstacles to the goals we want to achieve, habits become ingrained through repeated actions.

As creatures of habit, many people struggle with breaking habits. In Habits Die Hard, it is our intention to help you through this very common, very challenging life experience by giving you 10 keys to replacing destructive habits. Each chapter contains a worksheet to help you identify your specific problem areas and how to improve them.
If you have habits you intend to change, you will not be disappointed in this book.

Food for Thought…

I am your constant companion.
I am your greatest asset or heaviest burden.
I will push you up to success or down to disappointment.
I am at your command.
Half the things you do might just as well be turned over to me.
For I can do them quickly, correctly and profitably.
I am easily managed; just be firm with me.
Those who are great, I have made great.
Those who are failures, I have made failures.
I am not a machine, though I work with the precision of a
machine and the intelligence of a person.
You can run me for profit, or you can run me for ruin.
Show me how you want it done. Educate me. Train me.
Lead me. Reward me.
And I will then…do it automatically.
I am your servant.
Who am I?
I am a habit

Simple Truths philosophy: There is one thing in life that took me a long time to learn, and that’s… less is almost always more. This “simple truth” is the foundation on which our company was built. I wanted to create beautiful gift books that anyone can read in less than thirty minutes.

To make each book special, we focused on three things: Great content, Great graphics, Great packaging to create a “wow effect”

We also chose not to offer our books in any bookstores or any retail outlets, to make it even more special as a gift.

Satisfied customers are our #1 priority, so I encourage you to give us feedback on how we’re doing. If we ever disappoint you, I hope you’ll let us know, and we will do everything we can to make it right.

If Life is a Game, These Are the Rules

Author(s): Chérie Carter-Scott

While reading this book, you will begin to see life from a whole new perspective.” – Jack Canfield, co-author of Chicken Soup for the Soul ...MORE INFORMATION »

This book is a road map for personal growth. Any one and any team or organization can benefit from every member mastering the “Rules of the Game.”

Chérie Carter-Scott reinforces each chapter with real life examples that help to bring her “10 Rules” to life in a memorable fashion.

Life has often been compared to a game. We are never told the rules, unfortunately, nor given any instructions about how to play. We simply begin at “Go” and make our way around the board, hoping we play it right. We don’t exactly know the objective of playing, nor what it means to actually win.
That is what Ten Rules for Being Human is all about. These are the guidelines to playing the game we call life, but they are also much more than that. These Rules will provide you with a basic spiritual primer for what it means to be a human. They are universal truths that everyone inherently knows but has forgotten somewhere along the way. They form the foundation of how we can live a fulfilling, meaningful life.

Learning to Dance in the Rain – with DVD

Author(s): Mac Anderson and BJ Gallagher

No matter what your circumstances are, you cannot read this book and not feel extremely blessed! ...MORE INFORMATION »

  • An inspiring and beautiful gift book full of wonderful stories, quotes, poems and insight to help you reflect on the positives in life.
  • A wonderful gift book to give to someone in need of encouragement – it can take you from feeling down to feeling blessed.

The title of this beautiful book was inspired by a great quote from Vivian Green…”Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass…it’s about learning how to dance in the rain!”
How true it is! We all face adversity in our life. However, it’s not the adversity, but how we react to it that will determine the joy and happiness in our lives. During tough times, do we spend too much time feeling sorry for ourselves, or can we, with gratitude…learn how to dance in the rain?
It almost sounds too simple to feel important, but one word…gratitude, can change your attitude, and thus your life, forever. Sarah Breathnach said it best.
