The Jonah Complex

It is perhaps a little difficult for us to identify with the resonances of the word “Nineveh” in the same way as the Jews ... I called the book in your hands The Jonah Complex for the simple reason that, though the biblical text is well ...

“Here is a book that is both learned and easy-to-read, well-researched and inspiring. Greg Haslam has done a masterful job in producing a work that deserves to be read by every church leader and every believer. I pray that your mind will be challenged and your heart warmed by what you are about to read.” Dr. RT Kendall The message of Jonah to us today is both provocative and prophetic. It reminds us that God has a passion for reaching people that far exceeds our own. It reminds us that He is deeply affected by human sin and consistently seeks to win people back to Him by extending His outrageous grace to them. We all have something of Jonah in us. Like him, we are often wrapped up in our own concerns. But God gave Jonah a wake-up call he would never forget, setting him back on the path to achieving his destiny – and He can and will do the same for us! We may have messed up on the past or feel disqualified from doing anything great for God, but Jonah’s life is the ultimate evidence of the “God of the second chance”. Greg Haslam takes us on a journey to help us understand and cooperate with the will of God for our lives and highlights the power of what even one person can do if fully surrendered to the Almighty.

Growing up, in South Central Virginia, a young Earl Johnson often failed to understand the real meaning of the word - success. The fact that some people were considered successful did not motivate or inspire him to maximize his potential. "In reality, I failed to reflect on what real success was," he would later say. When a seventh-grade teacher asked the class to write a paper on what they wanted to do in life, Earl had no clue. He was dumbfounded, because he did not have the faintest idea of what he wanted to do in life. Looking back more than 40 years later, he realized that he had a parochial outlook on life. For a sustained period in his life, he was apprehensive with a morbid fear of failure. He suffered from success anxiety and was indecisive regarding career choices. He considered himself the victim of what noted psychologist Abraham Maslow called the "Jonah Complex," in reference about the biblical prophet Jonah. He was chosen by God to execute a life-changing assignment of redemption and salvation to a city that had lost its way. Instead doing what God commanded, Jonah attempted to run away from his obligation. Hence, the Jonah complex, in many respects, is the fear of greatness and failure. It is the fear of what might happen if a person attempts to reach their highest possibilities. Earl believes that it is regrettable and a form of socio-spiritual suicide to have the ability to achieve god-like potential in life and fail to use that ability. This book is an invaluable and insightful tool for those searching to break the cycle of success anxiety, the fear of self-achievement, and the stripping away of self-imposed limitations. It helps you rediscover the keys to mental happiness. Using Christian themes, action research, relevant scriptures and examples from his childhood, Earl offers a clear and concise perspective in overcoming success anxiety and the fear of failure.

Includes Original Essays & Letters "The more evolved and psychologically healthy people get, the more will enlightened management policy be necessary in order to survive in competition and the more handicapped will be an enterprise with an authoritarian policy."-Abraham Maslow In a world in which each new day brings a new management theory or strategic proposition, the timeless ideas of Abraham Maslow resonate with unimpeachable insight and clarity. Dr. Maslow, the pioneer behind elemental concepts including the hierarchy of needs and the human search for self-actualization, innately understood that the goals and passions that so impact humans in their everyday life could be just as applicable-and his own findings just as valuable-in the work environment. The Maslow Business Reader collects Maslow's essays and letters for his many devoted adherents, and introduces his published and unpublished works to readers unfamiliar with Maslow's management breakthroughs. From recognizing and warning against management's natural progression to mechanize the human organization to brilliant discussions of human motivation, Dr. Maslow never fails to instantly recognize the heart and soul of each matter and provide direct, across-the-board solutions. Abraham Maslow's contributions to behavioral science shine on every page. In notes and articles, as well as personal letters to icons B. F. Skinner, John D. Rockefeller II, and others, The Maslow Business Reader provides his outlook on: * Management and leadership issues such as customer loyalty, entrepreneurship, and the importance of communication * Ways to build a work environment conducive to creativity, innovation, and maximized individual contributions * Techniques for finding comfort in change and ambiguity, and using them to spur creativity and innovation Amid today's impressive technological innovations, business leaders sometimes forget that work is-at its core-a fundamental human endeavor. The Maslow Business Reader reminds us of Dr. Abraham Maslow's towering contribution to the understanding of human behavior and motivation, and how his efforts can lead to a greater understanding of the twenty-first-century workplace-and the workers who call it home. An important analysis of workplace motivation-from the twentieth century's most influential behavioral expert Abraham Maslow is renowned-and rightfully so-for his pioneering work on the hierarchy of needs and the human drive for self-actualization. As today's worker increasingly equates professional success with personal satisfaction and fulfillment, Dr. Maslow's words and ideas have become recognized for their wisdom and prescience on performance improvement and management/employee relationships. The Maslow Business Reader collects Abraham Maslow's most instructive, intuitive thoughts and essays into one important volume. Assembled from the wealth of behavioral research and analysis Dr. Maslow left upon his death in 1970, the enclosed selections reveal a man comfortable with his position in history, tireless in his efforts to better understand what truly makes humans strive to reach their potential, and gifted in his ability to translate the most profound concepts and realities into entertaining, thought-provoking prose. Abraham Maslow is still regarded as the modern world's most articulate, insightful authority on human behavior and motivation. Discover his beliefs and conclusions on worker drives and motivations-as applicable today as when they were first written-in The Maslow Business Reader.
