Flip the Gratitude Switch Book Review:

This powerful book is the ultimate guide on how to create real happiness in your life, through finding, cultivating, and activating gratitude no matter what your life circumstances may be... and to do it in a way that will change the trajectory of your life. This book will show you how to make gratitude something you DO not just something you FEEL, and how to change your life quickly, simply and permanently as a result. Hal Elrod says, "This is the definitive 'gratitude how-to guide, ' a timeless classic... and it's a book that the world has needed for a long time." All it takes is one FLIP... that single moment when you decide that you want to stop thinking about the life you should be living and ACTUALLY START LIVING IT! This highly anticipated new book will show you that the life you want is a lot closer than you think. It's not what happens to us that defines and shapes our lives - it's how we CHOOSE to react to the things that come our way. There is only one person who gets to decide how happy and contented you feel, how meaningful your relationships are, how much control you have over your life, and how much success you have... and it's you! Do you want to create success out of failure? Do you want to feel hopeful about the future? Do you want your relationships to grow and thrive? Do you want to live an abundant life no matter what? Then it's time to stop focusing on the things that happen TO YOU and start being thankful IN YOUR CURRENT CIRCUMSTANCES, whatever they may be. It doesn't matter where you are right now or where you've been. You can begin re-writing your story immediately - and guarantee it will have a happy ending - simply by FLIPping the Gratitude Switch with the simple 4-step FLIP Formula! "As one who who has read countless books on person development - and learned tons from many of them - I rank this book as one of the most important ever!" -Bob Burg, Co-author of The Go Giver "Everyone needs to read this book." -Greg S. Reid, Author - Think and Grow Rich Series "FLIP The Gratitude Switch is simply a MASTERPIECE! This will become one of those books that goes down in history as a must read." -Rob Shallenberger, CEO of Becoming Your Best Global Leadership "The principle of gratitude is quickly gaining support in the psychological literature as the starting point for every life improvement. Kevin Clayson understands this in a way that is not only psychologically sound and accurate, but also refreshingly authentic and immediately applicable." -Paul H. Jenkins, Ph.D, Speaker, Author of Positivity Psychologist "As a Ghostwriter, I've written a lot of books (like, a lot), and I've never had one that's even come CLOSE to changing my life in the way that Kevin's has. You can ask my husband, my parents, and my kids... I'm a changed woman thanks to this book. And I'll always be grateful for Kevin and for the opportunity to work on this book that he poured his soul into." -Jennifer Lill Brown, Ghostwriter, Author, Freelance Writer, Mom "This book is 5 Stars for sure. I've already applied the FLIP quite a few times and it has really made an impact. Having kids with disabilities isn't an easy task, it is a TRUE blessing and I am so grateful for my little twin angels, the Lord knew I needed them, and being able to find the frustration then look for something good is something I'm always doing. Adding the other steps of Kevin's formula is taking things to a whole new level for me! This book is a game changer and life changing! I feel so blessed to have been able to read this book. It felt as if Kevin was person- ally there reading it to me." -Michele Wright, Mother of 4 Learn the simple 4-step Formula that will change the trajectory of your life, and the one secret that will make gratitude much more than an emotion that you feel from time to time.

SUGAR FREE 3 Book Review:

A groundbreaking new program for improved wellness, more energy, sounder sleep, better-looking skin, and healthy weight loss—without counting calories! Conquer Sugar Cravings in Three Short Weeks Sugar Free 3 is a revolutionary new plan based on the latest research and science. It's not a diet. It's not a detox. It's not a cleanse. It's a three-week program to reset your entire approach to food and eating. You'll discover why sugar makes you fat (and sick), where it's lurking, and how to live happier and healthier without it. As the former Editor-in-Chief of Women's Health and Cosmopolitan, Michele Promaulayko has spent the last decade at the forefront of the newest research about how sugar and artificial sweeteners affect your mind and body. What she discovered was that added sweeteners are at the center of every major and minor health crisis, from the ones you'd guess—like obesity, heart disease, and diabetes—to the ones that might surprise you, like acne, bad moods, digestion, and sleep loss. Giving up these “added sugars” can lead to weight loss and decreased diabetes risk, sure, but also better skin, better moods, and thicker hair. Even if your baseline is “I feel OK,” you don’t know how much better you could be feeling once off the sweet stuff. Within just days, Sugar Free 3 users began to see and feel results: smoother, glowing skin, greater energy and clarity of thought, improved mood, better digestion and less bloat, better sleep, and significant weight loss—up to 7 pounds in the first week! “Michele has created a plan that’s easy, effective, and for everyone. In just days, you’ll feel better and look better than you ever have before!” says David Zinczenko, founder of Eat This, Not That! 5 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW 1. It’s Simple and it’s Doable So You Will Stick with It! 2. You’ll Never Feel Hungry! 3. Carbs Are Allowed! 4. No Calorie Counting—Ever! 5. You Don’t Have to Exercise! As a result, Sugar Free 3 helped people lose 5, 10, 15 pounds or more and feel happier and healthier than ever before. Now's your chance! Inside, You'll Discover: Delicious Recipes for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Snacks Secrets for Crushing Cravings and Weight-Loss Tips A Guide to Dining Out—and Ordering In Inspiring Testimonials from Real-Life Success Stories As a bonus, readers will enjoy onboarding to Openfit, the digital streaming platform that provides more recipes, tons of additional content and advice, a meal-planning app, Vlog, hundreds of workouts, and mindfulness and visualization videos.

Grit Book Review:

In this must-read book for anyone striving to succeed, pioneering psychologist Angela Duckworth shows parents, educators, athletes, students, and business people-both seasoned and new-that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent but a focused persistence called "grit." Why do some people succeed and others fail? Sharing new insights from her landmark research on grit, MacArthur “genius” Angela Duckworth explains why talent is hardly a guarantor of success. Rather, other factors can be even more crucial such as identifying our passions and following through on our commitments.Drawing on her own powerful story as the daughter of a scientist who frequently bemoaned her lack of smarts, Duckworth describes her winding path through teaching, business consulting, and neuroscience, which led to the hypothesis that what really drives success is not “genius” but a special blend of passion and long-term perseverance. As a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, Duckworth created her own “character lab” and set out to test her theory. Here, she takes readers into the field to visit teachers working in some of the toughest schools, cadets struggling through their first days at West Point, and young finalists in the National Spelling Bee. She also mines fascinating insights from history and shows what can be gleaned from modern experiments in peak performance. Finally, she shares what she’s learned from interviewing dozens of high achievers-from JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon to the cartoon editor of The New Yorker to Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll. Winningly personal, insightful, and even life-changing, Grit is a book about what goes through your head when you fall down, and how that-not talent or luck-makes all the difference.
