"Once I had money and I spent every dime, still I'm richer by far with a satisfied mind"
When we think of abundance and prosperity in our lives we usually think of wealth and material things.
But the word prosperity comes from the Latin meaning "to live in hope".
True prosperity results from living with an attitude of hope and faith in finding abundance: Abundance, not just in material things but also in health and in spirit.

Firstly acquiring good study habits and skills, throughout the academic year, and
Developing techniques for keeping calm and confident just before and during exams.
This audio presentation will explore a number of techniques to prepare you for exams so you are calm and confident on the day.

You deserve to have some “me time”. The angelic energy will flow through your body and give your body whatever it needs in this moment. Your body is constantly changing and your body loves to relax.

Learning how to have it all in today’s society can be pretty demanding. We expect to have the perfect life, well paid job, and beautiful home, top of the range car, stunning partner, perfect figure and youthful looks – Says who? Exactly: Where do we pick up our expectations of ourselves and indeed others? How come we demand so much from life and how come our expectations are so high? Welcome to Be Fabulous, the ultimate guide to contentment and realising you have it all right now just as it’s supposed to be. You can have it all, everything you want, hope, dream for and desire plus more… You can have the perfect YOU!
By Brenda Shankey From the best-selling audio album “Be Fabulous": Choose how you feel. Coping with hardships and stress and talking to yourself positively every day.
We all have been through difficult situations in our life, trauma, death, addiction, anger, stress, fear, hate, revenge, disappointments, and daily life’s struggles which challenge us every day. From now on I want you to look at these situations in a completely different way. Do not look at these as 'poor me why is my life so hard', 'why did I not get that job', 'why did my friend betray me, why is my partner so mean, why why why? For some things in life we will never find a reason, an explanation or an answer and what we do is let these situations ruin our life!
We allow ourselves to be the victim. We allow ourselves to be hurt, angry, sad, depressed, stressed! We can change that.
Remember we have the choice to choose how we feel about any situation good or bad. So from now on let’s see these situations as an opportunity to change how we think, feel and deal with life’s challenges.

By Dr Denis McBrinn Helping you to bounce back from life’s set backs and to grow through adversity.
Bouncing back is about resilience. No one escapes falling down, But what ultimately defines us as human beings is how we rise after falling.
This personal development audiobook helps you to bounce back from life's setbacks and grow through adversity. In a world of constant change, we are often faced with the challenge of reinvention. This audiobook will provide practical guidelines for gaining strength and becoming more skilful at handling life's difficulties, including: organisational change; redundancy; divorce; separation; retirement; bereavement; debt; ill health and accidents.
Resilience is the inner strength that enables us to grow through difficulty and adversity and become a better person. No one escapes pain, fear and suffering. It is all part of being human. Yet from pain can come wisdom; from fear courage and from suffering can come strength – if we develop the power of resilience. Mankind has known this for thousands of years. All the great religious and philosophical teachers have taught about enduring the storms of life to grow stronger in spirit. Storms make oak trees take deeper roots, in the same way that the storms of life can make the trees of our human spirit take deeper roots.
By Dr Denis McBrinn Overcoming failure is the ability to recover and become stronger as a result of dealing with challenging and difficult events that all of us experience in our lives. This audio is designed to help you to overcome failure by adopting a GROWTH attitude.
In our culture we have been conditioned to fear failure. We hate to make mistakes, dislike criticism and don’t like to appear stupid in the eyes others. Whether it is in our careers, business, education, relationships, sport or in life generally, we don’t want others to think of us as failures. In some cases we will deny or cover things up rather than admit mistakes. It’s because everyone loves a winner. Everybody needs to love and to be loved. If we don’t win then the fear is that we may not be enough and we won’t be loved.
But this is not reality. No one is perfect. No one is right all the time and no one wins all the time. Studies of very successful people reveal that they faced many setbacks and had many failures along the way to ultimate success.
This short audio presentation by Dr Denis McBrinn and narrated by Sara Dylan is designed to bring a clear understanding of what breathing is, how to use it, and to lead you gently into reflection of how you can use breathing to bring inner tranquillity into your life.
“If you want to reduce the anxiety from living, live in the moment, live in the breath.” Amit Ray
Breathing is for life!
We could survive without food for several weeks. Without water, the maximum we could survive is one week. Without sleep, we begin to hallucinate after 3 or 4 days.
But without breathing it is minutes!
Most of the time we are completely unaware of our breathing but without it, oxygen does not get into our lungs.
Not breathing deeply enough results in lack of energy and moodiness.
Just by taking a few deep breaths, regularly, you will calm your mind and relax your body.
This short audio presentation by Dr Denis McBrinn and narrated by Sara Dylan, is designed to bring a clear definition of what challenges are, how to deal with them, and to give you an opportunity to focus and reflect on the level of challenge currently in your life.
"Life's Greatest Opportunities are Fulfilled by Facing Life's Greatest Challenges" Eleesha
There is no shortage of challenges in life! Life is a journey through loss with many obstacles along the way. We will experience the loss of loved ones through bereavement: The loss of good health through illness, accidents or old age.
And major life events such as: getting married, giving birth, divorce, redundancy and retirement are all challenging times that can cause stress and anxiety.
When something difficult and challenging happens to us, we have three choices. We can either allow the situation to define us for the rest of our lives. Let it destroy us. Or use it to strengthen us and to make us better, rather than bitter.
This audio learning experience will give you the opportunity to make the decision to become stronger, more assertive, and better, not bitter.
This short audio presentation by Dr Denis McBrinn and narrated by Sara Dylan is designed to bring a clear understanding of what clutter is, how to stop accumulating it, and to lead you gently into reflection on how to clear the clutter currently in your life.
We all want our lives to be full of those things we believe will bring us joy and happiness.
But we also need to be careful not to fill our lives with too much stuff.
Ours is the most complex culture in history.
We experience more activity and devour more information in one day than our ancestors did in a lifetime.
We live in the midst of an intense technological haze of consumerism, advertising and entertainment.
We find it hard to dispose of stuff and now plastic pollutes the planet.
We seem to have an infinite capacity for making a mess!
”To all my female friends over 40 years of "age''. Most of us are going through the next stage of our lives. We are at that age where we see the wrinkles, grey hair, and extra pounds.
Menopause has already shown up or just waiting around the corner. We see the pretty 25-year olds and sigh. But, we were 25 once, just like they will one day be our age. What they bring to the table with their youth and zest for life, we bring our wisdom, scars, experience and good hearts.
For all we've been through earning each grey hair; raising kids, paying bills, surviving illnesses and whatever else life has thrown at us, we are survivors... we are warriors... we are strong beautiful women. Like a classic car or fine wine.
While our exterior may not be what it once was, it is traded for our spirit, our courage and our strength to enter this new chapter of our lives with grace, pride and wisdom for all we've been through and accomplished.
Never feel bad about getting older. It is a privilege denied to many.”
In this new audiobook Suzanne will bring some wise words for all women in their 40s and approaching 50. She will be bringing to you, an understanding of what the menopause is; why it happens, how its symptoms can affect you, and how you can use tried and tested tips on how to deal with menopausal symptoms to make your daily life more manageable.
While she will be focusing mainly on key lifestyle changes that you can make and natural remedies that you can use, she will also mention when medication is in order to manage your symptoms.
Remember, ultimately you must always follow your doctor’s instructions: DO SEE YOUR DOCTOR IF you've had trouble with menopausal symptoms which are affecting your daily life in a way that makes it hard for you to cope.
Suzanne is a Nutritional Consultant and a Certified Health & Lifestyle coach.
Contains instruction on key breathing techniques.

This short audio presentation by Dr Denis McBrinn and narrated by Sara Dylan is designed to bring a clear definition of what Courage is, how to develop it, and to give you an opportunity to focus and reflect on the level of courage currently in your life.
"Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change and the courage to change the things I can." Reinhold Niebuhr
Courage is one of the most important inner qualities we can develop to address our fears.
This audiobook will equip you with proven techniques to successfully communicate with angry people and protect yourself from violence
Have you ever been angry? I’m sure you have. How did it feel? What caused it? Did you lash out physically at furniture or people or just fume quietly?
Have you ever experienced an angry customer, or patient, or family member and been at a loss as to how to calm things down? Upon reflection have you maybe sometimes escalated the anger in the other person by arguing or speaking over or interrupting their angry rant?
Have you ever seen someone reach a point where they do kick furniture about or even raise a hand to strike you?
This audiobook is designed to give you an understanding of what anger is and when encountered in someone else what to do and what not to do to calm things down and reach a more rational way forward.
Psychologists recognise three types of anger: 1. There is hasty and sudden anger often connected to the impulse for self-preservation. It is shared by human and other animals, and it occurs when the animal, the person, is tormented or trapped. 2. Then there is the more common settled and deliberate anger possibly a reaction to perceived deliberate harm or unfair treatment by others. 3. And finally, dispositional anger often related more to character traits than to instincts or cognitions. Irritability, sullenness and churlishness are examples of this
In this audiobook we will be focusing mostly on type 2 where the anger is settled and deliberate, possibly a reaction to perceived deliberate harm or unfair treatment. Of course you may encounter all three types.
Some examples of the type 2 kind of anger might include a customer, who is complaining about the standard of the product they have purchased, or the householder who is angry at the engineer who is trying to get their electricity supply back on, or their heating repaired on a cold winter’s day.
Whether they are right or wrong, their perception is that you or your organisation is to blame and they will vent their anger and hopefully not their violence, on you.
You might work in a shop, or a bank, or you might be a social worker visiting your clients at their homes? You might be a nurse or Doctor dealing with unruly patients in Emergency on a Saturday night, or a police officer for whom the angry person is a frequent occurrence. Whatever your role in life you are going to encounter an angry person at some point. Be prepared.

Given this strategic challenge of exams, Aidan Moran will give you some practical tips on preparing for, and doing your best in, exams.
The self-help approach provides advice and tips on areas such as; getting down to studying, practical tips on motivation, remembering and understanding, and exam skills; doing your best when it matters most.
