"Insanity" is popularly defined as doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Yet, people have a tendency to do just that, whether it is with relationships, jobs, or destructive behavior. "Sanity" does not come, however, by simply dropping bad habits and relationships or swearing off certain behaviors. As Dr. Henry Cloud puts it, one has to take off the old and put on the new.
Cloud, a clinical psychologist, leadership consultant and author of the long-standing bestseller, Boundaries, presents in his new book, Never Go Back: 10 Things You'll Never Do Again (Howard Books), "ten key realizations about behaviors and thought patterns that hold us back and keep us from our goals."
"What we know about the brain is it's sorta like the old spiritual advice. What the Bible tell us is, there's two sides to getting better. We've gotta put off the old, but we have to put on the new. There's no such thing, really as stopping doing something without replacing it with a different direction and a different way of behaving," Cloud told The Christian Post in a recent interview. more >>

Renowned neurosurgeon and conservative star Benjamin Carson was up to his common sense ways again on Wednesday when he taught former Democratic Governor of Ohio Ted Strickland the importance of reading.
During an appearance on CNN's "Crossfire," host Stephanie Cutter asked Dr. Carson to clarify a comparison he made in his new book "One Nation" between modern day America and Nazi Germany, and tried to make an issue of it.
"To me, it doesn't sound like a complex statement at all," said Carson before reiterating his original comments. more >>
The Rev. Vanable H. Moody II, pastor of The Worship Center Christian Church in Bessemer, Alabama, and author of the new book, The People Factor, says it is time we do relationships right — at home, on the job and at church.
"Clearly, relationships can make the difference between a great life and a miserable existence," Moody writes in The People Factor: How Building Great Relationships and Ending Bad Ones Unlocks Your God-Given Purpose. "They can launch us into heights of excellence and achievement we never dreamed possible, or they can keep us down in the dumps, tethered to mediocrity for all of our days."
According to Moody, often referred to as Pastor Van, Christians cannot afford to take relationships lightly or for granted, as they are God's main mode of operation in the world. "Any and everything that God has ever done and will ever do in the world He does through people," he told The Christian Post. more >>
Most people find it difficult to get in tune with their inner voice amid their busy lives, however taking time to listen to a gut feeling or an instinct can lead to discovering a life of abundance and satisfaction, says Bishop T.D. Jakes.
In Jakes' new book, Instinct: The Power to Unleash Your Inborn Drive, he writes about how individuals can re-discover their natural aptitudes and become in sync with opportunities life presents if they are willing to see beyond their current limitations.
Inspired by a safari trip to South Africa and derived from personal experiences, Jakes' material illustrates some of the major principles and secrets that successful individuals have applied to their lives, but rarely tell others. In addition, Jakes offers readers advice on knowing when to close a business deal, when to take a risk, and how to listen to their hearts. more >>
