Aim Higher

Aim Higher: Turning the Storms of My Past into My Biggest Accomplishments (Balboa Press, 2019)

A near-death experience at the age of eight would be only the first challenge Haifa Blanchard (Season 4, Episode 428) would face, and over time, she learned we all have two choices: We can wallow in negative emotions or we can rise above them.

In Aim Higher, Haifa reveals the challenging life events that led her to rock bottom, the inward journey that she embarked on to rebuild her faith and life, and the meaningful lessons she learned along the way. Join the author as she shares how we can all take control of our lives to achieve success.

The Art of Forgetting

The Art of Forgetting: Your First Step Toward Lasting Change (Author Source, 2018)

Have you ever driven to work, then realized you don’t remember one single stoplight you passed through or turn you made? Or gotten through a sales meeting and not recall one word you said? Surely you dazzled them with your elevator pitch, but you don’t remember.

Why? You were living on auto-pilot. It turns out that the very tendency in our brains that tries to make things easy for us could be the one thing holding us back from living a life of fulfillment and purpose.

In the pages of The Art of Forgetting, Michael Neeley reveals how “Selective Forgetfulness” can help you:

  • Move beyond the labels you or others have assigned to yourself
  • Influence others by expecting the surprising from them
  • Rediscover the amazing in your most intimate relationships
  • Practice listening with fresh expectation
  • Kick limiting beliefs to the curb
  • FINALLY flip the switch from trying to doing

Isn’t it about time you stopped existing and started really living? The Art of Forgetting will give you both the insight and tools you need to get out of auto-pilot and back into the driver’s seat of your life.
