Major life transitions such as leaving the protected environment of school or starting a new career can be daunting. It is scary to face a wall of choices, knowing that no one is going to tell us whether or not we are making the right decision. There is no clearly delineated path or recipe for success. Even figuring out how and where to start can be a challenge. That is, until now. As executive director of the Stanford Technology Ventures Program, Tina Seelig guides her students as they make the difficult transition from the academic environment to the professional world, providing tangible skills and insights that will last a lifetime. Seelig is an entrepreneur, neuroscientist, and popular teacher, and in What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20 she shares with us what she offers her students—provocative stories, inspiring advice, and a big dose of humility and humor. These pages are filled with fascinating examples, from the classroom to the boardroom, of individuals defying expectations, challenging assumptions, and achieving amazing success. Seelig throws out the old rules and provides a new model for reaching our highest potential. We discover how to have a healthy disregard for the impossible, how to recover from failure, and how most problems are remarkable opportunities in disguise. What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20 is a much-needed book for everyone looking to make their mark on the world.

Imagine being left by the person you love and bouncing back stronger than ever. Written by best-selling authors, Dr. Elaine and Joe Foster, I Wish I Knew This Before My Divorce uses the latest advances in cognitive behavioral treatment to break the struggle between holding on and letting go. In this East-meets-West approach to finding serenity, the authors dissect the causes of your breakup, the myths that block your path to happiness and the steps you need to take to end your suffering. World-renowned clinical psychologist, Elaine Foster, is an expert in the fields of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), mood regulating medicines and the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder. Through her work using the "third-wave" of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) she has designed a revolutionary strategy for achieving Radical Acceptance during one of the most devastating events in life. The book uses proven research, easy therapeutic techniques and real-life stories to help the reader find balance in the turbulent waters of a breakup. Mindfulness experts like Jon Kabat Zin (No Matter Where You Go, There You Are), agree that these tested strategies will not only improve your health but also inspire you to thrive in the face of catastrophe. Now, you can use the power of ACT to breakthrough society's do and don'ts and stop should-ing on yourself. During this journey you'll learn: Your ex doesn't belong to you Craving for contact with your partner can keep you stuck in a cycle of vulnerability and powerlessness Your spouse is leaving the relationship, NOT you and what you can do about it A new, blockbuster theory for avoiding the deadly rebound No matter how much heat you're taking for this separation, a breakup is rarely one person's fault. Nothing hurts like being left by the person you thought would always be there for you, but you can learn to ride out the hard feelings by diving into this journey of discovery. By using this couple's 7-day ACTion plan, you will learn how to find peace no matter what direction your relationship takes. Each day of the week will build on the lessons you learned from the last, freeing you from suffering so you can skillfully ride the crests of change to the satisfying life you were always meant to live.
