Shift From “And” To “Or” And Change Your Life. We have entered a time in which the you-can-do-everything mentality has become the new normal. In The Power Of Or, Joe Robert Thornton challenges that notion by sharing stories and experiences that will help you focus and create balance in your life. In our daily lives, we do not always have the option of doing everything. We are constantly making tradeoffs. There will be times in your personal and professional life where “And” doesn’t work-you must choose “Or.” In The Power Of Or, Joe Robert Thornton explores pragmatic choices, decision-making, and prioritization, the implications that come with each when we attempt to do it all and offers recommendations. The Power Of Or is about having clarity of what is most important and then taking the appropriate action on those priorities to achieve the desired results-Choosing And Doing What Matters Most. In this book, you will learn about: The need for simplification before prioritization; The importance of discipline and self-discipline; The difference between ability and capability; The benefits of saying No; The case for eliminating multitasking; The impact of decision fatigue. If you are looking for a breakthrough in how you are living and leading, this book is for you.

We live in a world of worry, anxiety, and fear—a natural part of the human experience—but dwelling on anxiety-provoking thoughts can cause exquisite pain, both emotionally and physically. In the Scriptures, there are 200 sites where God’s people are directed not to worry, not to be anxious, not to be afraid. Like a loving father, God wants us to remember that He is driving the bus, and He is urging us to let go of our fears and trust in Him. If we pay attention to these messages, we can leave worry, anxiety, and fear behind. We can enjoy a calm, peaceful mental state in spite of whatever difficulties arise. And that is the goal of Do Not Worry, Do Not Be Anxious, Do Not Be Afraid. With this soothing collection of messages taken from Scriptures, may you find the peace of mind that comes from having faith in God and following His path.
