Who's Pushing Your Buttons?: Handling the Difficult People in Your Life

Who's Pushing Your Buttons?: Handling the Difficult People in Your Life

Author: Dr. John Townsend Narrator: Dr. John Townsend Release Date: 01/04/2021

Button-pushers come in all shapes and sizes, but they have one thing in common: Their behavior drives us crazy and makes us dream of ways to escape the mess we're in. The person who pushes your buttons is likely someone who matters to you - a spouse, a parent, a boss, a fellow church member. Almost always this difficult person is connected to you by blood, love, faith, or money, so you can't just end the relationship without causing pain and upheaval in your life. Our friends and today's culture will often advise us to abandon such relationships quickly - to end this unpleasant chapter and get on with our lives. Psychologist and author Dr. John Townsend disagrees, 'Your button-pusher is not someone you would easily and casually leave. You are intertwined at many levels. It is worth the trouble to take a look at the ways the relationship you had, and want, can be revived and reborn.' In this easy-to-read book he offers - Expert insights to help you understand your own button-pusher - Wise assistance in determining the nature of the problem - Compassionate help in identifying your failed attempts to fix things - A hope-filled vision for what can be and how to make it come true - Rich resources to help you navigate the necessary changes

Leading from Your Gut: How You Can Succeed by Harnessing the Power of Your Values, Feelings, and Int

Author: Dr. John Townsend Narrator: Henry O. Arnold Release Date: 01/03/2021

Leading from Your Gut will help emerging and experienced leaders alike to hone their intuition and become the leader they were meant to be. As a leader, your decisions are critical. They have a significant effect on you and everyone around you. But the effective leader needs to have more than just logic, facts, and financials to help make the best choices. Leaders also must access their own intuition, that gut feeling inside. In Leading from Your Gut, you'll learn how leaders excel not just through external competencies and skills but by drawing on their internal world and personal experience. You'll explore how to harness the power of your values, thoughts, emotions, and relationships to better meet the complex demands of leadership. As you apply Townsend's principles, you will see great results in your leadership. But more importantly, you'll experience the kind of personal transformation that will enable you to lead as a whole person. This book is the revised edition of Leadership Beyond Reason.

How People Grow: What the Bible Reveals About Personal Growth

How People Grow: What the Bible Reveals About Personal Growth

Author: Dr. John Townsend, Henry Cloud Narrator: Tom Parks Release Date: 01/06/2020

Our desire to grow runs deep. Yet the issues in our lives and relationships that we wish would change often stay the same, even with our best efforts at spiritual growth. What does it take to experience increasing strength and depth in our spiritual walk, our marriages and family lives and friendships, our personal development--in everything life is about? And how can we help others move into growth that is profound and lasting? Unpacking the practical and passionate theology that forms the backbone of their counseling, Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend shatter popular misconceptions about how God operates and how growth happens. You'll discover: - What the essential processes are that make people grow. - How those processes fit into a biblical understanding of spiritual growth and theology. - How spiritual growth and real-life issues are one and the same. - What the responsibilities are of pastors, counselors, and others who assist people in growing-and what your own responsibilities are in your personal growth. Shining focused light on the great doctrines and themes of Christianity, How People Grow shows why all personal growth is spiritual growth--and best of all, it helps you understand the Bible in a way that will help you head with confidence down the high road of growth in Christ.

People Fuel: Fill Your Tank for Life, Love, and Leadership

People Fuel: Fill Your Tank for Life, Love, and Leadership

Author: Dr. John Townsend, John Townsend Narrator: Dr. John Townsend, John Townsend Release Date: 01/06/2019

Full of stories, clinical advice, and accessible takeaways, People Fuel outlines the twenty-two relational nutrients we all need to cultivate good relationships that provide energy, focus, and the support you need to succeed. We all need more energy, the vitality that helps us stay motivated, focused and productive in life. We know we receive energy from good nutrition, along with working out, adequate sleep and maintaining positivity. But there is another major source for the energy we need: having the right kinds of relationships with others. Not the ones that drain us, but the ones that refuel us. In his new audiobook, Dr. John Townsend, psychologist, leadership expert and coauthor of the New York Times bestselling Boundaries, shows you how we need the fuel of 'Relational Nutrients' from others, and, in turn we can then provide them to others. Our bodies require physical nutrients to stay healthy. If we don't take enough iron, we can develop anemia. Too little calcium can lead to bone disease. In the same way, John identifies the key Relational Nutrients that we need. As we experience these critical elements from others, we grow mentally and emotionally more sharp and healthy. And as we give these elements back, others benefit as well. Finally, Dr. Townsend details the specific types of people who can either be energy sources or energy drains, and gives concrete steps to help you cultivate relationships with those who will help you be all you were meant to be. The person who taught you how to have boundaries now helps you to experience the best from those people you have allowed into your boundaries. Reference charts, tables, and appendix available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

Límites: Cuando decir 'sí', cuando decir 'no', tome el control de su vida

Límites: Cuando decir 'sí', cuando decir 'no', tome el control de su vida

Author: Dr. John Townsend, Henry Cloud, John Townsend Narrator: Alejandro De Mesa Release Date: 01/12/2018

Escrito por Cloud y Townsend, autores de Límites para nuestros hijos, este libro cuenta con consejos bíblicos y prácticos para todo cristiano. ¿Está tu vida sin control? ¿siente que la gente te utiliza? ¿Le es difícil decir que no? ¿Está desilusionado con Dios por falta de respuesta a tus oraciones? Establecer límites claros es esencial para obtener un estilo de vida sano y balanceado. Un límite es un línea de propiedad personal que marca las cosas de las que somos responsables. En otras palabras, límites es lo que define quiénes somos, o quiénes no somos. Los límites afectan diferentes aspectos de nuestras vidas: Los límites físicos nos ayudan a determinar quién nos puede tocar y bajo qué circunstancia. Los límites mentales nos dan la libertad de tener ideas y opiniones propias. Los límites emocionales nos ayudan a tratar con nuestras propias emociones y a librarnos de las emociones dañinas y manipuladoras de otros. Los límites espirituales nos ayudan a distinguir entre la voluntad de Dios y la nuestra, y nos dan temor de Dios. Los doctores Henry Cloud y John Townsend ofrecen respuestas bíblicas a preguntas difíciles, a la vez que nos muestran cómo poner límites sanos con nuestros padres, nuestros cónyuges, nuestros hijos, nuestros amigos, nuestros compañeros de trabajo, y hasta con nosotros mismos.
