Lifebook Loves: Nathaniel Branden (free MP3)
08Mar 2018

Hey Lifebookers, Jon and Missy here.

Today we have a super special gift to share with you — one that is very near and dear to our hearts.

For this week’s Lifebook Loves, we’re thrilled to highlight the brilliant work of our dear friend and mentor of over 20 years, the late Dr. Nathaniel Branden.

World-renowned for his work in psychotherapy, Nathaniel was widely considered the pioneer and world’s leading expert on the subject of self-esteem. He was a great thinker, a compassionate teacher of rational values, and ultimately a champion for happiness.

For more than two decades Missy and I were honored to call Nathaniel one of our dearest friends and teachers. And as we mention in the credits of the Lifebook Program, no single person on earth had a greater influence over our lives and our work than Nathaniel.

Today you can get a free glimpse into Nathaniel’s breakthrough audio program, Succeeding Through Inner Strength.

Click here to download the first part of Dr. Nathaniel Branden’s 12-part audio program, Succeeding Through Inner Strength — free for Lifebook subscribers for a limited time only!

To download, right click player and “save as.”

In this program, you will explore the components of self-esteem (the relationship and reputation you have with yourself), how to make it grow, and how, with enhanced self-esteem, you can move toward greater success and happiness in all areas of your life.

Once you’ve had a chance to listen, head over to or where you can purchase the full program, and browse dozens of other life-changing classics!

We simply cannot recommend Nathaniel’s work highly enough, and we truly hope you love it as much as we do!

In the immortal words of our beloved friend, may we “live with integrity, respect the rights of others, and follow our own bliss.”

With so much love and respect,

33 Books That Inspire Jon & Missy
06Mar 2018

Looking for that next great book to inspire your life?

We’ve got your back…

In honor of intellectual month here at Lifebook, Jon and Missy have compiled a list of their top 33 most influential books EVER.

These are the life-changing books that have literally shaped who they are as people, and how they live each and every day.

Take a look, and be sure to leave your favorite books for us in the comments!

1. Cosmos
Carl Sagan

Cosmos retraces the fourteen billion years of cosmic evolution that have transformed matter into consciousness, exploring such topics as the origin of life, the human brain, Egyptian hieroglyphics, spacecraft missions, the death of the Sun, the evolution of galaxies, and the forces and individuals who helped to shape modern science.

2. Atlas Shrugged
Ayn Rand

Tremendous in its scope, this novel presents an astounding panorama of human life. A mystery story, not about the murder of a man’s body, but about the murder – and rebirth – of man’s spirit. It is a philosophical revolution, told in the form of an action thriller of violent events.

3. The Art of Living Consciously: The Power of Awareness to Transform Everyday Life
Nathaniel Branden

The Art of Living Consciously is an operating manual for our basic tool of survival. No other book illuminates so clearly what true mindfulness means in the workplace, in the arena of romantic love, in childrearing, and in the pursuit of personal development

Allen Clark: A Powerful New Beginning
15Feb 2018

By Allen Clark

“CONGRATULATIONS! You made it to the final week of Lifebook’s 2018 Health and Fitness Challenge.”

I love everything about that comment. I also love that “the final week” does not apply to me. Just over a month ago I would not have been able to say that. I am inspired by the progress I have experienced so far and plan to make turn this challenge into a lifestyle.

I am 51, and on January 1, was literally twice the man I should be – but not in a desirable way. It was like doing everything, day and night, with another me on my back! So, my goal was to drop weight, along with some of the negative health side effects that came with being so physically… abundant.

Lifebook (both this challenge and the quest, which I am currently doing), Jon, Missy, and everyone who has helped… I am surprising myself because I have a lump in my throat as I type this. I know this is supposed to be short but if I can please elaborate, to help you better understand the enormity of what you are inspiring here…

The reason I said I would not have been able to say that a month ago, is while I used to embrace fitness and have a robust and enthusiastic love of life, in the past 15-20 years both of those faded to the point where my main reason for holding onto life was so my children wouldn’t have to lose their father. I was ready to go, part of me looked forward to it, and I figured at my current rate it wouldn’t be that much longer (check out my starting “fitness age” in the table below). I had occasionally begun the effort to get back in shape, but my heart wasn’t in it and there was no longer any commitment or real desire.

I am so far from that now, I can hardly believe I’d sunk that low! And I am excited for what I am continuing to create daily.

Here are some of the changes that have occurred so far, according to my scale and its app:

Weight lost: 31.7 lbs
Body Fat: -5%
Muscle: +3.3%
Fitness Age: -11 years! More…

Casey Bradburn: Diet as the Key to Success
15Feb 2018

By Lifebook Member Casey Bradburn

If you even briefly met me at any time during my first 31-ish years of life, you would have known that I was tough. I just exuded an aura of bad@$$ery. I was fit, I was strong, and I was confident. I even birthed two 8- and 9-pound (posterior) babies naturally. I was one of those people that if I put my mind to something, there wasn’t anything that would stop me from reaching my goals.

Fast forward a little bit and the last few years have been tumultuous with various stressors from multiple categories, and over time I slowly got worn down and lost a lot of that. Of myself. I knew I needed to kick it back in gear and this challenge was the perfect motivation to do just that.

Okay, so now for the challenge. What were my goals, what were my results, what happened?

Well, my main goal was to lose 10 pounds, which was pretty aggressive. My secondary goals were to be able to do 2+ pull-ups and 12+ push-ups again.

I’m happy to announce that I hit all of these goals!

I surpassed my main goal and lost over 13.2 pounds in less than 30 days, which is about 8% of my weight.

How did I do it? I’m glad you asked… More…

EvEllen Harris: Win in Health and Fitness, Win Everywhere!
15Feb 2018

My name is EvEllen Harris. I am 39 years old and am on a quest to be in the best shape of my life by the time I am 40!

To achieve this goal, I implemented a six-part goal for the Lifebook Health and Fitness Challenge 2018.

Step one: Begin the challenge with a 3-5 day water fast.
Step two: Workout first thing in the morning 5 days per week.
Step three: Do a second wind workout in the afternoon 5 days per week.
Step four: Intermittent fasting until 2:00 PM daily.
Step 5: Nail my meal plan of unlimited vegetables and 3 ounces of protein at dinner.
Finally, step six: Beat my sugar addiction by having NO sugar or refined carbs for the whole month.

I am happy to report that I nailed all six of my goals for this challenge!

As they are fond of saying in the Lifebook program: “A win here is a win everywhere!”

By accomplishing all the goals I set out to achieve during this challenge, I have seen the needle move in EVERY Lifebook category.

The most meaningful gains I have made were in the categories of health and fitness, emotional life, character, parenting, love relationship, and career. More…

9 Secrets of Lifebook’s Working Moms
12Feb 2018

A woman is the heart of her home.

Our energy is woven into the very fabric of our families. No matter what we’re doing, if we’re unhappy, everyone is unhappy. And conversely, if we’re content, everyone is content.

The beauty (and sometimes, the burden) of motherhood is that we are at the center of our family’s universe.

For better or worse, we are the heartbeat of our home.

This is why we feel so much pressure to be and do everything in our lives.

As mothers, wives, career women, homemakers, and a dozen other things, we often feel like we’re being pulled in a million different directions… and it can be difficult to maintain a positive, patient, loving, happy attitude when we feel exhausted and divided.

So how can we create more balance and coherence within the different categories of our lives?

Lucky for us, there are tried and true strategies we can use to create real, powerful change right now.

This month, nine stunning Lifebook Career Mamas banded together to share their very best advice for creating balance and harmony within the many roles they play.

Read, smile, laugh and cry along with us as we honor these brilliant ladies, and support one another on our wonderful journeys of becoming the best women we can possibly be.

As always, once you’ve had a chance to read through each of the posts, share the love by commenting at the bottom of the article.

We want to know what daily steps you take to maintain your inner strength!

Enjoy! :) More…

How Lifebook Helped This High Schooler Gain Confidence & Clarity About the Future
06Feb 2018

Written by Sienna S., high school senior

Being a senior in high school, I had felt incredibly confused and anxious about what I wanted my future to look like. There was so much uncertainty around all aspects of my life – I felt overwhelmed and underprepared.

My parents, long-time Lifebook Members, immediately decided I needed to go through Lifebook.

On Day 1, I had already felt a shift. I felt motivated (rather than overwhelmed) to create goals around what I truly wanted for my future. Throughout the session, I felt consistently more optimistic about my future.

I had created my own goals and strategies that focused on what I truly wanted out of my life, something that not many teenagers do in their free time.

After Lifebook, I feel confidence and clarity about my Life Vision, and how I am able to achieve it.

Lifebook is an incredible experience, and I’m so grateful for the valuable insight I’ve gained from both my group, and myself.

A huge thank-you to Sandra and all of the Lifebook staff!
