Who hasn’t asked the question “How can I find and follow my true calling?” Elle Luna frames this moment as “standing at the crossroads of Should and Must.” “Should” is what we feel we ought to be doing, or what is expected of us. “Must” is the thing we dream of doing, our heart’s desire. And it was her own personal journey that inspired Elle Luna to write a brief online manifesto that, in a few short months, has touched hundreds of thousands of people who’ve read it or heard Elle speak on the topic. Now Ms. Luna expands her ideas into an inspirational, highly visual gift book for every recent graduate, every artist, every seeker, every career changer. The Crossroads of Should and Must has a universal message—we get to choose the path between Should and Must. And it gives every reader permission to embrace this message. It’s about the difference between jobs, careers, and callings. The difference between going to work and becoming one with your work. Why knowing what you want is often the hardest part. It gives eye-opening techniques for reconnecting with one’s inner voice, like writing your own obituary (talk about putting life in perspective). It talks about the most common fears of choosing Must over Should—money, time, space, and the ultimate fear: total vulnerability—and shores up our hesitation with inspiring stories of and quotes from the artists and writers and thinkers who’ve faced their own crossroads of Should and Must and taken the leap. It explains the importance of mistakes, of “unlearning,” of solitude, of keeping moving, of following a soul path. Presented in four chapters—The Crossroads, The Origin of Should, Must, and The Return—inspired by the hero’s journey outlined by Joseph Campbell, The Crossroads of Should and Must guides us from the small moment, discovering our Must, to the big moment—actually doing something about it, and returning to share our new gifts with the world.

The commonly held belief that you should ‘follow your passion’ is flawed. Many people believe that in order to be truly happy, you need to find and follow your one and only true passion. This is a very limiting approach to passion, and one not backed up by much research. In fact, recent research in the field of positive psychology has shown that you can live a more fulfilling life by choosing to pursue your whole life with passion. This has nothing to do with monetising the one thing that you love, but finding love in what you do. Susanna Halonen, also known as the Happyologist, introduces a new approach to passion that enables you to take control of your happiness. By highlighting the latest research in the field, including her own, Susanna explains how you can choose to unlock the passion inside you so that you can live a more fulfilling life. The secret to living life with passion is pursuing the passionate way of being, and the five keys to that secret are individually explored and discussed in this book. Each discussion is followed by questions of self-reflection that encourage you to create your own, unique action plan to start unlocking your passion. This book is an eye opener for those who want to understand the real science behind passion. It’s also a must-read for anyone who is looking for more fire, spark and positive energy in their lives and careers. Most of all, it’s a tool to help you to take a more proactive approach to unearthing your best self and setting out on the path towards passionate happiness. Praise for Screw Finding Your Passion: "Wanting happiness and knowing how to pursue it are two different things. Scientifically, happiness is a choice, not something you find. Using new research and practical tools, Halonen helps us change the formula for how we pursue passion, allowing us to find more ways of achieving our potential and creating joy." - Shawn Achor, positive psychology researcher and NYTimes bestselling author of The Happiness Advantage "It's very clear that Susanna Halonen is passionate about her work. And it's very clear that her work can help you unlock the passion within you." - Tal Ben-Shahar, author of international bestseller Happier "We all have times that life seems flat and not very fulfilling. Susanna's unique stance on passion will enable us to find that love for whatever we're doing right now." - Nina Grunfeld, founder of Life Clubs "This idea is so important it can't be ignored." - Elliot Newsome, founder and Managing Director of SKT Consulting

Right now, over 100 million Americans secretly feel frustrated and bored with their lives. You may be one of them if… *you’ve come to regard yourself as “your own worst enemy” *you’ve developed a commute-work-commute-sleep routine that seems endless *you and your significant other treat each other like roommates *you constantly daydream and wonder, “Is this all there is?” *you sense a potentially hot relationship with someone next door, down the hall, or in the adjacent cubicle but somehow it never happens *you worry that no matter what you do to stay in shape, the battle is already lost *you have a tendency, when asked how you’re doing, to just say, “Fine.” If any of the above sounds familiar, there’s clearly something missing from your life. This book will help you discover what it is, and how to win it back. Written by Mel Robbins, one of America’s top relationship experts and radio/tv personalities, this hands-on guide not only shows you how to put your finger on the problem, it reveals what to do about it. Mel Robbins has spent her career teaching people how to push past their self-imposed limits to get what they truly desire. She has an in-depth understanding of the psychological and social factors that repeatedly hold you back, and more important, a unique set of tools for getting you where you want to be. In Stop Saying You’re Fine, she draws on the latest neuroscientific research, interviews with countless everyday people, and ideas she’s tested in her own life to show what works and what doesn’t. The key, she explains, is understanding how your own brain works against you. Because evolution has biased your mental gears against taking action, what you need are techniques to outsmart yourself. That may sound impossible, but Mel has created a remarkably effective method to help you do just that -- and some of her discoveries will astonish you. By ignoring how you feel and seizing small moments of rich possibility –a process she calls “leaning in” – you can make tiny course directions add up to huge change. Among this book’s other topics: how everything can depend on not hitting the “snooze” button; the science of connecting with other people, what children can teach us about getting things done; and why five seconds is the maximum time you should wait before acting on a great idea. Blending warmth, humor and unflinching honesty with up-to-the-minute science and hard-earned wisdom, Stop Saying You’re Fine moves beyond the platitudes and easy fixes offered in many self-help books. Mel’s insights will actually help vault you to a better life, ensuring that the next time someone asks how you’re doing, you can truthfully answer, “Absolutely great.”
