Embracing Struggle: Turning Stumbling Blocks into Stepping Stones, a guide book for anyone struggling with life

by Andy Lacroix

Struggling with Life? Change the way you look at struggle and change your life

At some point in our lives, whether we like it or not, we can all be assured of one thing: inevitably, we will encounter struggle. Whether it is a struggle with emotions or a struggle to make ends meet or a struggle to manage time and stay organized, you have undoubtedly faced challenges that you have been forced to come to grips with, one way or anotherâ??and you will face these challenges again in the future, as well.

We all have our struggles, and many of us struggle with struggle itself. We push it away, try to deny its existence, or rage against it with venomous vehemence. We don’t want to struggle, we want to lead peaceful lives that have a smooth flow and an even tempo, without strife and struggle peppering our daily affairs. We often view our struggles as being akin to some archenemy, and thus, we often seek to avoid them in any way we canâ?¦ even if it does no good, even when our avoidance is an exercise in futility.

Part of the problem many of us have in coping with our various struggles lies in our perception of those struggles. We so often take a very dim view of strife in all its forms, and this leads us to overlook how useful that strife can be. That’s right: struggle can be put to good use. In this book, I’ll show you how. We will discuss steps and strategies for changing your outlook and walk through exercises which you can perform in order to help you to achieve greater insight into your own struggles and how to effectively deal with them.

You can change the way you look at struggle and change your life. You can turn stumbling blocks into stepping stones and emerge with a fresh perspective and a new set of skills for coping with the challenges you face in your life. You can take these inevitable challenges and make them work for you instead of against you.

If you’re ready to take control of your life by learning to embrace the struggles that you encounter, I invite you to read on. The key to changing your perceptionâ??and your lifeâ??is in your hands.



A Masonic Journey

by Nelson Rose

A Masonic book that emphasizes the application of Masonic philosophy in everyday life. The book uses a combination of storytelling and traditional instructive prose to lay out a Masonic Life Journey for Masons and non-Masons alike.

This book’s primary focus is on the practical application of Freemasonry and its moral philosophy. A practical and pragmatic approach is used to discuss symbolism and the use of allegory so that those that are not interested in all the often whimsical mystical layers of the Craft can still benefit from its teachings.

Powerful Women, Threatened Men: The Femme Fatale Myth (Women’s Power in Culture)

by Edith Zack

The femme fatale is a male topos in which masculine traits are attributed to a woman. Thus, she is powerful, initiating, and independent; yet being also beautiful and erotic she is associated with seduction and corrupting forces which lead men to their own destruction. Though this topic had existed since the beginning of humankind, her image was presented almost obsessively at the turn of the twentieth century. In fact the femme fatale is a vital sign of the emergence of a new feminine image since the 1850s; a consequence of social, political and cultural circumstances.

“This writer is a person of brilliant insight, sometimes wild and heretical but always challenging”
