Everyday kinds that normal, ordinary people exhibit all the time, like “being the first to make up after an argument,? or “going to bed without a nightlight.?

Smile at Fear: Awakening the True Heart of Bravery
by Chogyam TrungpaSearch for Chogyam Trungpa
$6.82 new/used

Many of us, without even realizing it, are dominated by fear. We might be aware of some of our fears?perhaps we are afraid of public speaking, of financial hardship, or of losing a loved one. Chögyam Trungpa shows us that most of us suffer from a far more pervasive fearfulness: fear of ourselves. We feel ashamed and embarrassed to look at our feelings or acknowledge our styles of thinking and acting; we don?t want to face the reality of our moment-to-moment experience. It is this fear that keeps us trapped in cycles of suffering, despair, and distress.

Chögyam Trungpa offers us a vision of moving beyond fear to discover the innate bravery, trust, and delight in life that lies at the core of our being. Drawing on the Shambhala Buddhist teachings, he explains how we can each become a spiritual warrior: a person who faces each moment of life with openness and fearlessness. ?The ultimate definition of bravery is not being afraid of who you are,? writes Chögyam Trungpa. In this book he offers the insights and strategies to claim victory over fear.

It's Not About the Tights: An Owners Manual on Bravery
by Chris BroganSearch for Chris Brogan

You are the superhero you've been waiting for.

For whatever reason, we tend to think that "someone" is going to make us better, that we're broken, that we're missing the key ingredients to succeed. We feel envy and we're certain that we're the only failures this world has ever seen. It's a tough row to hoe.

Plenty of people have written books that talk about being positive. Others have written up plans that tell you what you're missing. In this case, all I promise you is a cape.

I'll teach you about Confidence, Acceptance, Permission, and Execution, and how Practice in all those areas will guide you to find those missing success points in your life.

My name's Chris Brogan. I'm a New York Times bestselling author of four books (mostly about marketing and digital business), and I'm the president and CEO of a company that sells courses, workshops and speeches on business and personal improvement called Human Business Works.

This book is based on the experiences I've had with overcoming my own challenges, plus the wisdom of some other smart cookies. Plus, I'm blessed with hundreds of people who have participated in my online course, Brave New Year. Consider this book an invite into that community, should you decide you'd like to go further.

It's not about the tights. It's about you.

Natural Bravery: Fear and Fearlessness as a Direct Path of Awakening
by Gaylon FergusonSearch for Gaylon Ferguson
$18.95 new/used

How to find freedom from fear: Buddhist teachings that really work, from a respected contemporary teacher.

Fear is something that's such a part of our lives that it doesn't seem it would be possible to live without it. This book disputes that claim in a powerful way. Gaylon Ferguson presents traditional Buddhist teachings to show that the fear that so often wreaks havoc on us is in fact quite insubtantial?and it's mostly something we create ourselves. If we can learn to see that, it becomes pretty simple to un-create it, and we also discover that there's a natural fearlessness in us that goes far deeper than fear. With this natural bravery as our foundation, we can live our own lives more effectively and also be a better help and comfort to others.

Bravery, Bullies, and Blowhards: Lessons Learned in a Montana Classroom
by Lorna StremchaSearch for Lorna Stremcha
$14.48 new/used

Illustrates the dysfunctional atmosphere in one Montana school district. But, in reality, it could probably be any school district in any state of the union. Every school has its secrets. Every school has its malcontents. In order to write this book, the author had to take a long journey in search of understanding. Why did the administration react the way they did? What were the underlying problems that led to their strange behavior? What was it about her background and personality that led her to react as she did? At the end of the journey she realized that school safety was paramount. And parents, teachers and taxpayers all need to understand the pervasive atmosphere found in many schools. It was an atmosphere in which petty tyrants often rule. Those that wish to gain a better understanding of the after-effects of physical or psychological abuse will find this book to be a useful tool. The story is told with candor and honesty and may evoke emotions that are rarely expressed by a target. Sadly, the actions and/or inactions by management are often used to destroy talented and effective employees and many perpetrators remain employed ? or promoted. Unfortunately, many will suffer after-effects and will never enter the workplace again. Some will develop PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)?the invisible injury. Bravery, Bullies, and Blowhards: Lessons Learned in a Montana Classroom attempts to lead the reader to that ?aha? moment in which they can first understand and then stop abuse and/or bullying in the workplace.

Theodore Roosevelt on Bravery: Lessons from the Most Courageous Leader of the Twentieth Century
by Theodore RooseveltSearch for Theodore Roosevelt
$12.99 new/used

Teddy Roosevelt is the only president in history to deliver a ninety-minute speech directly after being shot in the chest. He?s a Nobel Prize recipient, a Harvard graduate, and he was the youngest President in history to be inaugurated into office. Roosevelt?s force took America by storm in the early twentieth century, and he is regarded as one of the finest leaders ever to take office.

His wisdom even earned him a spot in Mount Rushmore, which has immortalized him along with George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln.
As a sickly child, Roosevelt was home-schooled his entire life until enrolling at Harvard University, where he studied biology. A year after graduating, he began his political career as the New York City police commissioner, and later as a member of the New York State Assembly, where he led the reform division of the GOP. In the time since his presidency, Roosevelt?s bravery has inspired generations of Americans.

“A man who is good enough to shed his blood for the country is good enough to be given a square deal afterwards.?
