50 Ways to Get Your Way by Juliet Huck
Promotes
the Art of Persuading Others
Using the Simple Power of Commonsense Values
In 50 WAYS TO GET YOUR WAY, Juliet Huck
shares the lessons she learned while growing up on her family’s farm in rural
Ohio—values such as being grateful, nurturing relationships, and listening
intently, which she used to build a successful career as a persuasion
strategist working with corporate clients and on high-profile legal cases. Huck
teaches readers how to be persuasive in a manner that is honorable and
respectful, while making genuine human connections.
The tools Huck shares in 50 WAYS TO GET YOUR
WAY
are familiar, but the author notes that many of these values are
missing in the current social climate. Using beautiful images (many
photographed by the author) and conversational prose, Huck encourages readers
to commit to a practice of awareness—of self and others—and guides them through
the dance of building relationships that will help them achieve their goals.
While all of the pearls of wisdom presented in 50 WAYS TO GET YOUR WAY
are essential ingredients for developing into a solid human being, several
offer the building blocks for becoming an exceptional person who gets what he
or she wants. Being empathetic by learning what other people find meaningful,
paying attention to the effect that one’s tone can have on others, telling a
compelling story, letting go of expectations to minimize disappointment, and
understanding the importance of clarity when asking for assistance or sharing
plans are just a few of the gems that Huck examines in her book.
Huck acknowledges that the principles outlined in 50
WAYS TO GET YOUR WAY
are not “rocket science”; however, she believes they
are timely. “Observing the current environment, I could not sit back and be
silent about how we are treating each other—especially when we need something
from someone else. I felt instead of fighting with others, it is time to remind
us of the beautiful things that can connect us,” Huck said.
50 WAYS TO GET YOUR WAY was written with the intention of helping
people fulfill their personal and professional needs by mastering the art of
making genuine connections.

The Declaration of Persuasion
Persuasion in NOT a call to action – it is a directed action
It is
time to break up the myth that persuasion is
a call
to action. To “call” is to “invite.” This puts all
the
power in someone else’s hands. While to “direct”
is to
“control.” This is the ultimate way to give you
the
power you need to get what you want. Inviting
someone
to do something allows them to say no. You
must
lead or direct them to what you want in simple
words,
statistics and/or visuals proportional to the
magnitude
of your need. Think of a traffic cop. They
are not
inviting you to take their direction. You are
clearly
persuaded to do what they want you to do
as they
are in control. Moving someone to decide
in your
favor is not always easy but there are steps
which
you can take that will get you what you want.
Carry on!

BLURB:

Having survived quite a few birthdays and had some interesting experiences, I wrote them down. That’s how “My Wonderful Wobbly Life” was conceived. It was nearly born in 2004, but decided to hang on until 2018 to become ‘Born again‘ Alleluia!!!!

EXCERPT

Chapter 1 – SURVIVAL

“I’ve changed my mind! I’ve changed my mind! I don’twant to go.”

I have a vague memory of making this cry from a railway carriage as I was stolen from my parents by authoritarians.

I was five years old when the authorities decreed I had to be placed in a home for children. Their decision was final and all avenues of appeal against it were exhausted when my father, to soften the blow of parting, talked me into what he described as an adventure.

It was not until the train began to move and the realisation came I was leaving my parents forever, that I made my plaintive cry:

“I’ve changed my mind!”

When I arrived at the home my world changed, never to be the same again. My loving mother and my fun-filled father were gone and in their place were grown-ups I did not know. I did not understand what was going on. There were lots of crippled children, but why was I there with them? Okay, I couldn’t walk very far without falling over. I shook uncontrollably most of the time for no apparent reason. I couldn’t speak very clearly. But, I’d been like this all my life, for me it was normal. So, what was I doing here? “

AUTHOR Bio and Links

Charles was born in London U.K. in 1932. During his birth the forceps slipped, resulting in brain damage to the motor control nerves of his right side and causing total body spasticity. However, his intellect was not damaged. Throughout his life the two adversaries, controllable brain and semi-controllable body, always needed to be balanced. After several years of work and study he became a Chartered Production Engineer. In 1971 he emigrated to Australia and became a senior examiner in the Australian Patent office. This autobiography illustrates the rhyme: “He started to sing as he tackled the thing, That couldn’t be done – but he DID IT!” Charles chronicles his journey from useless to useful, with humour and joie de vie. He pays tribute to friends who only gave him help when it was asked for. At a young age he recognized his psychic abilities and, by using lessons at the end of each chapter, shares some insights with readers

INTERVIEW

If you could apologize to someone in your past, who would it be?
There is no point in apologizing in retrospect, because the incident that took place does not have the same significance now time has washed over it. Ergo, there is no-one to be given an apology.
If you could keep a mythical/ paranormal creature as a pet, what would you have?
Pegasus the winged horse. Then I could invent and indulge in a new hobby of ‘Drone Round-up!’
How do you keep your writing different from all the others that write in this particular genre?
That is easy to answer. I don’t let them live my life for me.
What are the best and worst pieces of writing advice you ever received?
I cannot recall ever having been given any advice about writing in general. Any advice I have been given has usually concerned specific points being presented in an article I was writing. However, since publishing my book and trying to write another, I have been given a platinum piece of advice. Which I share with you, “Write like a Reader!”
Are the experiences in this book based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
The title of my book being “My Wonderful Wobbly Life,” gives a big clue to the answer of this question. It is a memoir of my life, outlining the trials and tribulations of coming to terms with being disabled in an abled world. The problems of getting an education, finding and keeping employment, being accepted in society and by the opposite sex were difficult to overcome. ‘The rows were hard to hoe, but the plant of life grew to maturity.’

SHE HAS NO TIME FOR LOVE

Dr. Gen Kendall has paid too high a price to let anything get in the way of her dream. In one month she’ll be a full-fledged doctor. She just has to impress her chief of staff, Dr. Jack O’Neill. She impresses him, all right. With one swing of a softball bat she puts him in his own hospital and changes both of their lives forever.

HE HAS NO TASTE FOR LOVE

A widower with a 12-year-old daughter, Jack hopes this move to Chicago will signal a new life for them both. He doesn’t plan on finding himself literally at the feet of one of the most compelling women he’s ever known. He certainly doesn’t expect her to turn his life upside down when she recognizes something in his daughter that could well break his heart. Is love enough to see them through, especially when it means that not just Jack but Gen must face the ghosts of their pasts to save his little girl?

Read an Excerpt

“You look like hell.”

Gen couldn’t help but laugh. “I hope you don’t expect me to say you look any better.”

She was glad when he closed his eyes. He wouldn’t see her rub her hands along her pants to wipe off the sudden perspiration. He wouldn’t be close enough to hear the sudden staccato of her heart.

Good grief, she thought. He looks like day-old hamburger, and I’m about to swoon. Her hands were tingling all the way to her elbows, and she had done nothing more than push him back into bed. She wanted his teasing. She wanted, ridiculously enough, to settle herself on the side of his bed and just enjoy his company.

A man who was recovering from a head injury. The man she’d single-handedly put in the ICU.
