Cathy Harris Creates
Reader's Empowerment Circle
Non-fiction Book Club
Dallas business woman, Speaker, Author and Coach, Cathy Harris has always wanted her own book club, especially after forming her "Let's Read Campaign" -- eight years ago.
She wanted the book club so that she could highlight not just her writings and books but some great books by others, who also had great stories to tell. To join the book club join the meetup.com group "Austin/Dallas Community and Online Writing Club."
As an author of 23 books, sure Cathy's books are great and 'easy to read' and can be read by 12 year olds and above but there are other authors, who can help empower your entire family and she does believe in sharing.
We live in a country that has taught everyone to reach for wealth. But being wealthy is not always about money and power, there has to be a health and wellness proponent attached to everything you do because the United States is the unhealthiest industrialized nation in the world. And you certainly can't be wealthy -- if you are not healthy.
Many of us continue to be heartbroken as we see the people that we truly love die from preventable and avoidable diseases. We don't share our knowledge or ideas so Cathy Harris wanted to create a book club to open up a dialogue of sharing information starting with the title of the books selected in this book club. Make sure you check out the e-book, paperback and audiobook version of the books.
The first 3 books in the book club were written by women and the next 3 by men. There is a reason the first 3 books were written by strong women who all ending up getting divorces, while raising two daughters. They all have great stories to tell and all were featured on "The Oprah Winfrey Show."
The next 3 books were written by men in the medical profession who also believe in natural and holistic healing. This book club will be a physical and virtual book club and will meet every couple of months online and in Dallas, TX.
Feel free to skip ahead and read the first 6 books in our selection and because the world is moving so fast, we will discuss two books every two months.
The first six months of books include:
- "Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating A Life of Well-Being, Wisdom and Wonder" by Arianna Huffington - June 2016
- "Goddesses Never Age: The Secret Prescription of Radiance, Vitality and Well-Being" by Christine Northrup - July 2016
- "How To Take Control of Your Own Life: A Self-Help Guide To Becoming Healthier Over the Next 30 Days" (Series 3) by Cathy Harris - August 2016
- "Eat Right 4 Your (Blood) Type: The Individualized Diet Solution" by Peter J. D'Adamo - September 2016

- "Unleashing the Power of the Female Brain: Supercharging Yours for Better Health, Energy, Mood, Focus, and Sex" by Dr. Daniel Amen - November 2016.
Short description of each book:
"Thrive" will talk about how the author woke up in a pool of blood after creating one of the largest and most successful news empires in the world and will bring our attention to how important it is to get enough sleep.
"Goddesses Never Age" will help all women understand why they feel the way they do and how not to make life altering mistakes that you simply can't take back.
"How To Take Control of Your Own Life (Series 3)" was written by an author despite filing 10 EEOC.gov workplace complaints, a Sexual Harassment and a Whistleblower Complaint, her biggest fight - her fight to live - did not come until 2 years after she retired from working 11 years in an abusive workplace environment, especially when 6 doctors including two specialists failed to diagnose her with any illness - despite having pain over half her body.

Book Club Discussion
"Reader's Empowerment Circle
Non-Fiction Book Club"
1st book club discussion
"Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating A Life of Well-Being, Wisdom and Wonder."
(Available as e-book, paperback & audiobook)
Until I can find a new place in Dallas, TX to hold physical book club discussions, I will start off today in this e-newsletter discussing our first book with you.
I will also be discussing all of the books in the book club through our virtual platforms, so read all the recommended books.
I would like to discuss what the first book in my book club meant to me. The book is entitled Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating A Life of Well-Being, Wisdom and Wonder."
Some people don't like people with accents, therefore, they might not enjoy listening to the audiobook version of this book, however, I did this several times.
The author, Arianna Huffington, hired another person, who also had a thick greek accent like her, to read the audiobook verison of the book, so basically she sounds just like the author.
Even though I recently bought the paperback version of the book, I never read this version of the book, but I have listened to the audiobook version several times and the book was really special to me.
The book discussed why many women need to sleep themselves to the top. For most people when they hear anyone make a statement like that, they would think it is a negative statement.
However, what the author meant was, you need to get enough sleep every night, so that you could be in top form everyday to do what it takes to make your life work.
I know this is true because last year, at age 59, I went 3 months without sleeping. Right after joining CampGladiator.com, and having to get up at 4:30 a.m. for a 5:45 a.m. hour workout in the morning 3 or 4 days a week, I had a hard time trying to get a good night's sleep.
Three months ago I injured my right arm after lifting too much weight, too many times. However, I continued the workouts and received great results after altering some of the recommended exercises.
Not only did I have a hard time trying to get a good night's sleep, but I can't tell you how many times I went to the CampGladiator.com morning workout, without even having gone to sleep.
I definitely don't advise anyone to do this. Not only is it unhealthy for you, but this can also make you prone to accidents when working out, so NEVER workout if you are feeling too tired.
It wasn't until I attended a meetup.com event and sat down for 5 minutes with a Sleep Therapist, that I was able to realize what was happening to my body and understand why I was having a hard time sleeping every night.
He said that when I got prepared to go to sleep every night, because I had such a BIG CREATIVE SIDE OF MY BRAIN, my creative side would literally wake up and talk to me.
I would use this time to go over what I had accomplished each day and no matter how much I accomplished, I always felt I was falling short. I can't tell you how many times, I got out of bed and went into my home office, just to write things down.
My accomplishments over the last 21 months while in Austin was astronomical, however, again I always felt I was falling short or that I should be doing more. I guess this is just how creative people and their minds work.
These are just some of my accomplishments during my 21 months living in Austin, TX:
- Released the book "The New CEO"
- Released the book "How To Raise Smart, Talented and Responsible Children"
- Released the book "Love After 50"

As you can see, dynamo accomplishments so after meeting this Sleep Therapist located in Austin, TX http://www.hypnosisaustin.com for just 5 minutes, who I highly recommend to others, he gave me a list of several things I could do. One included when I went to bed every night, to concentrate on a certain part of my body.
Just pick one body part and concentrate on it, he said, so I picked my stomach. Why did I pick my stomach? I felt if I concentrated on my stomach, even though my eyes were closed, my eyes would not wander upwards or sideways, but instead go downward, and this worked for me every time.
The next thing I remember after doing this exercise is waking up in the morning, feeling refreshed, energetic, springing out of the bed - ready to take on the day.
A lot of people like to go around pretending and won't and can't admit when they need help. They don't want anyone to see them vulnerable.
Many people, especially business owners, have all types of talents and even though I am an Empowerment Speaker, I try to seek out help when I need it because even the best of us can get off track, so you need to figure out when you need help.
The bottomline is the meetup.com community in Austin, TX saved me. It saved my mind, body and soul because of all the great information I encountered in the meetings. This is also why I created my own 9 meetup.com groups at www.CathyHarrisInternational.com so I could PAY IT FORWARD.
This is a great low-cost platform (you get 1 or 3 meetup.com groups for $19.99 a month) that everyone can use to form thriving communities and just take care of each other. Remember that no one is an island and we all need each other to survive.
Arianna Huffington's book "Thrive" was an awesome read. I will continue to discuss this book in future e-newsletters, and at physical and virtual book club discussions.
I would like to close this discussion today by making the statement, "if you are a female and you never read this book, again it is highly recommended that you do so as soon as possible."
The book has forever altered my mind on how I think when it comes to getting a good night's rest. The book has forever changed my life! Good luck!
