A brief biography and photos of General Patton helps readers visualize one of the great military leaders of all time. The inspirational content will make this book an indispensable compaion for busy executives everywhere. This collection of George S. Patton’s pithy one-liners shows how business managers can succeed by applying the combat-tested principles of one of America's most famous battlefield leaders. General Patton was a professional soldier who spent his life inspiring people to accomplish the seemingly impossible. Now managers can use his secrets to motivate their employees. The author takes brief quotations from Patton’s writings and draws the deep inner philosophy from them. This way, managers can easily grasp the principles involved and make practical use of them to get great performance and productivity from their employees. The book also presents the work of W. Edwards Deming and Walter A. Shewhart, two pioneers in quality control who have influenced management practice for over fifty years. Their philosophy is very similar to Patton’s—which is not surprising, since the fundamental principles of both military leadership and business management are universal.
The one-minute messages were written in response to the pastor's one-minute messages written on the back of the church bulletin every week. After saving all of them, the Sunday school outlines were added to the collection of writings and then, in 2013, the Lord gave instructions to add more of His teachings and arrange them into a manuscript format. Since it was His work, it was filed away for four years, except for parts of it given to individuals. His recent instructions were to submit the writings to Christian Faith Publishing. Their approval came sooner than expected. Therefore, God will use it to His Glory in the way it was meant, revealing His heart toward mankind.

The basics of The Five-Minute Miracle came to Tara Springett, a psychotherapist, in meditation one day. The system is a pleasurable self-help method that is designed to overcome all sorts of psychological problems, as well as easing chronic pain and tiredness. The method only takes five minutes each day and is so simple that it can be used by anyone, anywhere, even by children. A synthesis of Tibetan Buddhist principles and humanistic psychology, the core of the practice is to make contact with our Higher Consciousness (in whatever form we perceive it) and receive a healing symbol to overcome our problems. This symbol will be visualized (or sensed) in our heart, radiating loving light to ourselves and to everyone who is involved in the problem. It’s a system that can be used over and over again — for a new problem, ask for a new symbol. This system, which the author calls Higher Consciousness Healing, has brought extremely impressive and reliable results — within days or a few weeks of beginning the practice — to hundreds of individuals and families. Now everyone can learn and practice these principles through this extraordinary and miraculous book.
