Success is attainable for anyone who is willing to put in the work to develop the ability to achieve their dreams. These dreamers see beyond their surroundings to transcend the limits of their own particular circumstances. In this book, Gaby interviews successful personalities, such as Carlos Santana and Deepak Chopra, to learn what they did to achieve their dreams. She breaks down their stories to discover how they channeled their innate strengths and abilities to best work for them. Through seven archetypes that trace the path from conception to the consummation of a dream,?The Virtuous Circle will teach you to: Identify and cultivate their own potential for greatness Develop an action plan, step by step, in order to make their vision come true Understand what skills they must develop to achieve extraordinary results Convert enthusiasm into fuel so that they can overcome adversity Develop a sense of purpose to become an agent of positive change This is a book for dreamers, the rebels at heart who see beyond the circumstances surrounding them, those who suspect that something wonderful is waiting for them, but they have not yet dared to take that first step that will take them to their new destiny.

Imagine an economy in which today's goods become tomorrow's resources and nothing is discarded. Ellen MacArthur, the founder of her eponymous foundation, which works to accelerate the transition to a regenerative economy, writes that we need to stop living a "take, make, dispose" lifestyle. We need to think about a circular economy where waste and pollution are prevented, products are reused and natural systems such as agricultural land are regenerated. This is the seventh essay in the Big Ideas series created by the European Investment Bank.

Is the process of political communications by the news media and by parties responsible for civic malaise? A Virtuous Circle sets out to challenge and critique the conventional wisdom. Based on a comparative examination of the role of the news media and parties in 29 postindustrial societies, focusing in particular on Western Europe and the United States, this study argues that rather than mistakenly 'blaming the messenger' we need to understand and confront more deep-rooted flaws in systems of representative democracy.

"Good nutrition is key to maintain or improve health, and people's ability to secure an adequate diet is fundamental to achieving social and economic advances. Although the nutritional status of most people in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region has improved over the last two decades, undernutrition and micronutrient deficiencies remain a serious threat to public health."The purpose of this nutrition review of the MENA region is to develop a base of knowledge and a sector strategy, and to help fulfill the World Bank's mandate for poverty reduction. This is the first comprehensive overview of nutritional issues in the region, putting together the problems in an overall economic development context. The review focuses on the health implications of nutritional issues, and supplements a regional study of food subsidy programs and the regional health, nutrition and population sector strategy paper. It aims to: • assess the region's nutritional status; • analyze the causes and consequences of nutritional problems and their implications for health; • suggest a strategy to improve the nutrition and health of the people in the region; • develop a database from available sources and literature.

This book is about icons-exceptional organizations (orchestras, restaurants, sports teams or companies) with an aspiration to make or do something special, and to go on doing so, year in, year out for decades. This is what gives these organizations their undeniably iconic status. By selecting 14 iconic organizations (including ElBulli, McKinsey, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Procter & Gamble, the All Blacks) and researching what characteristics make them different from others, the authors discovered a "competency spiral" which these organizations exhibit in their success. Attracting and retaining the right people; forging individuals into a team; and achieving outstanding results, time after time, through continuous improvement and adjustment-these are the key competencies required to achieve iconic status.

All parents wish that their children grow up to lead a vibrant, creative and innovative life. The question is - what should parents do to make this wish come true? This book answers the question. The book contains thirty-three simple yet profound thoughts for parents to reflect on. The thought could be a helpful principle to follow, a method to practise, or a value to abide by. Parenting and nurturing creativity are skills, which are honed with practice. Therefore, each of the thirty-three chapters in the book describes an activity for the family to carry out and put into practice and adopt the idea in the home. The book is a culture-free work and is of value to any discerning parent who is keen for the blossoming of creativity in their children.

The book titled Dr. R. D. Mohota's Constructivist Education is based o a revolutionary teaching technique invented by him. The technique has been demonstrated on six million students. It doubles marks and reduces the learning time in half. The book is based on creative and constructive learning. Students use their imagination to create good ideas. They also combine what they already know with what they learn in the classroom to construct new knowledge. The first is creative learning. The second is constructivism. This book provides solutions to both these aspects in a very convenient and proven manner. Twenty five percent of human beings are in the classroom, which means nearly three hundred million Indians are in the classroom. These three hundred million upgrade the remaining one hundred million Indians—a father, a mother and a brother or sister-- if their minds become creative and intelligent. This is possible if education becomes creative and students construct new knowledge instead of listening to lectures from teachers and rote-learning like parrots in the end to pass an examination. I request parents, teachers and students to read this book and use the revolutionary teaching technique and the central ideas that it advances. These will improved the minds of the students, make them concentrate on learning and help them to score exceptionally good marks without the pain of mindless rote-learning.
