Success trap : rethink your ambitions to achieve greater personal and professional fulfillment by Stan J Katz( Book )
3 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 292 libraries worldwide
In Success Trap, Dr. Stan Katz, an eminent Beverly Hills psychologist, shows you how to create a personal philosophy of success, one based not on the expectations of society, which so often distort our perceptions of what we want, but on a careful examination of your real character and needs. If your idea of success is presiding over a shareholders' meeting, flashing your smile on the cover of a national magazine, or showing off your perfect family, you might be trapped by your ambitions. As Dr. Katz shows in this compassionate, thought-provoking study, these measures of success are limited and limiting-if you accept them unthinkingly. What we all need is an internal measure of success, a firm idea of what it takes, not to be considered successful by others, but to feel successful ourselves. This revolutionary book proposes nothing less than a new definition of success, a new philosophy of life, and a realistic path to fulfillment and happiness

Alchemy of the word : writers talk about writing ( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
A book like no other, from a writing program like no other. In this remarkable collection of essays, twenty-five acclaimed novelists, poets, playwrights, memoirists, cross-genre and nonfiction writers engage the reader in a virtual literary conversation, filled with passion, insight, wit, and warmth. The Goddard MFA was the first low-residency program in creative writing; now there are around fifty operating in the United States. Program Director, Paul Selig says, "What greeted me at my first Goddard residency was the kind of community I had never dreamed possible ... the faculty-well, they were teachers of the first order, and I found their dedication to shepherding a new generation of writers came from a place of deep generosity, wisdom and integrity." Alchemy of the Word introduces you to this faculty-not through their writing tips, tricks, and exercises, but through their experiences of themselves as professional writers living in the world, tackling issues they care about deeply and reporting back. To read this anthology is to travel to the wellsprings of literary inspiration, and to eavesdrop on a room full of mentors. Words become us. Our lives become words. So begins the introduction to this powerful collection. The essays that follow are eclectic and range from the practical to the mystical, the humorous to the scientific, and the political to the personal. Throughout, each essay explores, exhorts, inspires, and exhilarates ... illustrating in its own distinctive way the transformative power of language: the alchemy of the word. -- taken from publisher website
