People Teach Us How to Find Career and Personal Success in the 21st
Century (Perseus Publishing)
you look into the future, what do you see? A future filled with
uncertainties? Too many rapid and unpredictable changes in the
economy, your career, your health?
Well, you're not alone...
Many people are scared of the future. Everything is different now. The old rules
no longer apply. What used to spell success, doesn't. "Work
hard, nose to the grindstone" - may just mean you get your
nose ground. We're living to ripe old ages and who's ready for
it? No doubt about it, people are scared. Chaos, constant change
and the specter of the unknown are highly anxiety provoking for
all of us.
Winner Takes All answers these fears. It is the first book to
provide a map for individual success and fulfillment by describing
ways to deal effectively and positively with the world's unique uncertainties.
In Winner Takes All Dr. Nelson describes
a step-by-step process for 21st Century success, illustrated
by four individuals suddenly facing an out-of-control future
filled with frightening unknowns.
She shows in straightforward down-to-earth ways how to take
control of the future by reaching out to the future, and how
to create a plan for success using intangibles, such as creativity,
belief systems, inner qualities, and imaginative access to resources
in practical ways, to create tangible success. Dr. Nelson provides
readers with the tools to face the chaos and turmoil of the 21st
Century in productive and proactive ways.
Winner Takes All is
inspirational as well as practical, filled with real-life stories
of exceptional people, who show us how
these tools are used by Winners from all walks of life, so-called "ordinary
people" to celebrities like Christopher Reeve, Willye White
and Muhammad Ali -- people of all shapes and sizes, representing
a variety of ages, ethnicities, physical capabilities and genders.
All of these Winners experienced unanticipated life-altering
events that threw them into lives bereft of traditional moorings.
Yet these Winners managed to transform themselves and achieve
success and fulfillment. So can we!
Winner Takes All is indispensable for finding and maintaining
success in the 21st century in a future where success may seem
ephemeral, if not impossible.

Takes All is a book about no longer taking 'no' for an answer - especially
our own 'no.' It's about challenging
doubt, and making great opportunities of mere possibilities -
but doing so with our feet planted firmly on the ground. Noelle

resources than we think, and that, with openness and courage,
we can be almost anything we want to be."
