´´We need vision and conviction that the future can be better. With motivation we can act with bravery and daring. Determinations help drive through our vision but is balanced by patience and letting things unfold without trying to force them. Instead of being afraid of the future, we can cultivate the habit of love (the very opposite of fear). . . . With hope the world becomes transformed.´´ We live in chaotic times. Nearly every country in the Western world is confronted with a variety of daunting problems ranging from the rise of neo-Fascist parties, economic stagnation, falling currencies, and a widespread sense of disenfranchisement. There is a sense that we no longer control our lives that circumstances have careened out of control leaving us adrift in a sea of change. Hope seems to be in short supply, and fear at times threatens to overwhelm us as we try to stay afloat in our sea of troubles. This is a book of daily meditations designed to help restore a sense of hopefulness and purpose. It is a book for women who feel overwhelmed and underappreciated. It is the perfect antidote to despair: a book that teaches women to practice hope - to take concrete steps in the face of pain and despair and to make their lives happier. Throughout the book Campbell includes stories of those who have triumphed over adversity and have been sustained by hope, such as Anne Frank, Grace Lee Boggs, Ann Davison, Marie Curie, Artemisia Gentileschi, Hildegard of Bingen, and Xiaolu Guo. She also includes the experiences of those who have been abused or kidnapped--Maya Angelou, Oprah Winfrey, and Natascha Kampusch, for example--and the stories of refugees who have made new lives for themselves, escaping from Uganda, Iran, and Syria.
´´On the Other Side of Freedom reveals the mind and motivations of a young man who has risen to the fore of millennial activism through study, discipline, and conviction. His belief in a world that can be made better, one act at a time, powers his narratives and opens up a view on the costs, consequences, and rewards of leading a movement.´´--Henry Louis Gates, Jr. From the internationally recognized civil rights activist/organizer and host of the podcast Pod Save the People, a meditation on resistance, justice, and freedom, and an intimate portrait of a movement from the front lines. In August 2014, twenty-nine-year-old activist DeRay Mckesson stood with hundreds of others on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, to push a message of justice and accountability. These protests, and others like them in cities across the country, resulted in the birth of the Black Lives Matter movement. Now, in his first book, Mckesson lays down the intellectual, pragmatic, and political framework for a new liberation movement. Continuing a conversation about activism, resistance, and justice that embraces our nation´s complex history, he dissects how deliberate oppression persists, how racial injustice strips our lives of promise, and how technology has added a new dimension to mass action and social change. He argues that our best efforts to combat injustice have been stunted by the belief that racism´s wounds are history, and suggests that intellectual purity has curtailed optimistic realism. The book offers a new framework and language for understanding the nature of oppression. With it, we can begin charting a course to dismantle the obvious and subtle structures that limit freedom. Honest, courageous, and imaginative, On the Other Side of Freedom is a work brimming with hope. Drawing from his own experiences as an activist, organizer, educator, and public official, Mckesson exhorts all Americans to work to dismantle the legacy of racism and to imagine the best of what is possible. Honoring the voices of a new generation of activists, On the Other Side of Freedom is a visionary´s call to take responsibility for imagining, and then building, the world we want to live in.
I´ve long wanted to put together a motivation book - I get emails and comments from readers every day in need of motivation to reach a goal, to stay focused, to exercise, to be productive, to just get up off their butts and do something. But I wanted to add something, add value greater than I already offer on Zen Habits. And so I turned to Eric Hamm of the Motivate Thyself blog, and found the perfect partner for this book. Eric writes about motivation all the time - it´s the lifeblood of his blog, and what he lives every day. He knows motivation as well as I do. The two of us have accomplished a lot, working for others and working for ourselves. We´ve had plenty of failures, and through these failures have learned tons about motivation, and about ourselves. It´s from these failures that we´ve gathered the attitudes and methods that actually work, that have given us the motivation needed to achieve our goals. It´s our hope that we´ll pass on some of this practical advice to you, and that you´ll go on to use it to achieve great things yourself. Even if you´ve already achieved great things, at the very least I know this book will serve as a basic reminder and give you a little shove when you need it. I recommend using this book like this: read it in little bits, and put them into action. And when you need a bit of motivation, pull it up and read some more, and then get your butt into action again. Good luck, my friends, and may all your dreams become reality! 1. Language: English.

What is MO? The purpose of MO! is to help people get and stay motivated, but with a very unique twist. Most people think that motivation is out of reach for them. They have an average job at an average company. This audiobook is intended to give hope by shining light on those people who are in average regular jobs, but are amazing. This audiobook profiles those people in ordinary jobs, who, despite that fact, decided NOT to be ordinary. We see a Service Advisor, Hot Dog vendor, Airline Gate Agent, Seafood Market Owner, Construction worker, Seamstress, Fitness Trainer, and a Taxi driver who all have the magic MO! qualities. Every day, they perform their jobs brilliantly, exceptionally, and differently - exceeding everyone´s expectations of what that job ´´should´´ be. More importantly, everyone around them knows it, sees it, and acknowledges it. This is something anyone can achieve - and this audiobook highlights the qualities essential to achieve it. 1.
