Title: The Positive Dog: A Story about the Power of Positivity

<p>From the Author: 11 Benefits of Being Positive<br> <br> 1. Positive people live longer. In a study of nuns, those that regularly expressed positive emotions lived an average of 10 years longer than those who didn't (Snowdon, 2001).<br> <br> 2. Positive work environments outperform negative work environments (Goleman, 2011).<br> <br> 3. Positive, optimistic salespeople sell more than pessimistic salespeople (Seligman, 2006).<br> <br> 4. Positive leaders are able to make better decisions under pressure (Institute of HeartMath, 2012).<br> <br> 5. Marriages are much more likely to succeed when the couple experiences a 5-to-1 ratio of positive to negative interactions, whereas when the ratio approaches 1-to-1, marriages are more likely to end in divorce (Gottman, 1999).<br> <br> 6. Positive people who regularly express positive emotions are more resilient when facing stress, challenges, and adversity.<br> <br> 7. Positive people are able to maintain a broader perspective and see the big picture, which helps them identify solutions, whereas negative people maintain a narrower perspective and tend to focus on problems (Fredrickson, 2009).<br> <br> 8. Positive thoughts and emotions counter the negative effects of stress. You can't be thankful and stressed at the same time.<br> <br> 9. Positive emotions such as gratitude and appreciation help athletes perform at a higher level (Institute of HeartMath, 2012).<br> <br> 10. Positive people have more friends, which is a key factor of happiness and longevity (Putnam, 2000).<br> <br> 11. Positive and popular leaders are more likely to garner the support of others and receive pay raises and promotions and achieve greater success in the workplace.<br> <br> </p>

Title: Soup: A Recipe to Nourish Your Team and Culture

<p class="null1">Praise for <i>Soup</i></p> <p>"So often we only concern ourselves with wins and losses. We overlook what is at the core of success, and that is the 'culture' of the team that is created by the leader or leadership group. If you create a culture where all members of the team can thrive and do their jobs effectively, then the score will take care of itself. Jon gives you the recipe of how to create a culture of greatness for your team, organization, or family."<br> —<b>Mike Smith, Head Coach, The Atlanta Falcons</b></p> <p>"In a world where leaders are pulled in a million different directions, <i>Soup</i> reminds us that we must make time to cultivate engaged relationships in order to build a winning organization and team."<br> —<b>Margaret Kelly, Chief Executive Officer, RE/MAX International Inc.</b></p> <p>"A lot of my job as a leader is to help others unleash their gifts and passions. Sometimes these gifts appear to be hidden beneath the surface but with a little heat and care, they bubble up to the surface. That's what you'll find in Soup by Jon Gordon. Told in an entertaining parable form, <i>Soup</i> will help you understand how to nurture the greatness in others so that you can become great as a team."<br> —<b>Mark Batterson, Lead Pastor of National Community Church and author of Primal</b></p> <p>"Jon Gordon continually finds unique and creative ways to reveal the essential components of an efficient organization and always does so with great depth and insight. <i>Soup</i> provides the key ingredients to establishing culture and is another example of how Gordon's writing transcends common thought."<br> —<b>Sam Presti, Executive Vice President and General Manager, the NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder</b></p> <p>"There's a common problem in business today. It's a people problem . . . but maybe not in the way you would think. We spend so much time focusing on the bottom line that many fail to focus on the people who make the bottom line what it is. People matter and how we lead them matters. This is why I recommend Jon Gordon's new book. It provides the recipe for mobilizing and engaging a team."<br> —<b>Chris Brogan, New York Times bestselling author of <i>Trust Agents</i> and <i>Social Media 101</i></b></p>

Title: Energy Addict 101: Physical, Mental and Spiritual Ways to Energize Your Life

<p>If you have ever said "I wish I had more energy" or "I just don't have the energy" then you need to Become an Energy Addict. We all wish we had more energy to meet the increasing demands of every day life. And we all wish we had more time to do all the things on our to-do list. Many of us are overstressed, overworked and overtired. The problem is that it's not getting any easier. Somehow the days are getting shorter while our to-do lists are getting longer. Our pace of life continues to get faster and the demands continue to increase. We fight through each day, battling fatigue and headaches, stress and frustration, depression and grumpiness, back and neck problems. We attempt to fight back with caffeinated drinks and candy bars with the hope that they will give us just enough energy to accomplish our tasks before we crash. But when the caffeine and sugar wears off we are left feeling tired once again. Tomorrow it starts all over. We need more energy and time but where do we find them? Unless Congress passes the 25 hour day, we can't increase the amount of hours in our day. Thankfully, there is another way. We can become an Energy Addict. We can learn simple, powerful strategies to increase our mental, physical and spiritual energy. We can become addicted to positive energy and habits. And we can make small changes in our lives that will produce big results.</p>
