<h2>How can you find success in life by building your mental toughness? 10 Proven Methods for an unbeatable mind!</h2><br /><br />Although incredibly elusive to many of us, success is actually very easy to achieve. In fact, success is so easy to achieve that we can whittle it down to a single, quotable sentence. Are you ready for it?<br /><br /><i>“To achieve success, all you need to do is take consistent action that drives you toward a specific end or outcome.”</i><br /><br />However, because we are complex and complicated beings—beings who constantly bargain with ourselves even though we know what is good for us—instead of doing what will give us the most satisfaction in the end, we constantly settle for things that give us temporary happiness in the present moment (the very definition of procrastination). <b>This is why many of us never achieve our goals and aims.</b><br /><br /><b>This does not have to be the case.</b><br /><br /><h2>A few things happen when you get mentally tough:</h2><br /><ul><li>You can be successful</li><li>You can improve your life</li><li>You have better self-esteem</li><li>You gain more confidence.</li></ul><br /><br />When you buy this book and learn these proven methods, you can keep your eyes on the big picture at all times, and instead of settling for immediate, instant gratification, you can choose to do the things that give you the most long-term satisfaction. <b>You can finally succeed at anything you want.</b><br /><br /><h2>Here Is a Preview of What You’ll Learn:</h2><br /><ul><li> Mental Toughness: What It Means & Why You Need It</li><li> Mental Attitudes That Complement Mental Toughness</li><li> Emotional Competency for Improved Mental Toughness</li><li> Resiliency for Mental Toughness</li><li> Willpower for Mental Toughness</li><li>And Much More</li></ul><br /><br />Are you ready to change your life for good?

<b>In <i>Eat Meat And Stop Jogging,</i> Mike Sheridan uncovers everything's that's WRONG with our current understanding of nutrition and metabolism, diets and weight loss, and physical fitness and health.</b><br /><br /><i>"I know the diet plans, exercise and fitness books, and health and nutrition basics aren't working for you, because they're not working for anyone!

When journalist Robert Andrew Powell finished his first marathon, he cried, cradled in his father’s arms. Long distance runners understand where those tears come from, even if there are others who will never understand what drives someone to run 26.2 consecutive miles in a grueling mental and physical test. Powell’s emotional reaction to completing the race wasn’t just about the run, though. It was also about the joy and relief of coming back up after hitting rock bottom. <P><I>Running Away</I> is the story of how one decision can alter the course of a life. Knocked down by a painful divorce and inspired by his father, Powell decided to change his mindset and circumstances. He moved to Boulder and began running in earnest for the first time in his life. Over the 26.2 chapters that follow, Powell grapples with his past relationships, gaining insight and hard-won discipline that give him hope for the future.

<b> A Collection of Thoughts, Sayings and Meditations on the Way of the Samurai </b> <p> "It is said that what is called "the spirit of an age" is something to which one cannot return. That this spirit gradually dissipates is due to the world's coming to an end. For this reason, although one would like to change today's world back to the spirit of one hundred years or more ago, it cannot be done. Thus it is important to make the best out of every generation." <i> — Tsunetomo Yamamoto, Hagakure: The Book of the Samurai </i> <p> A formerly secret text known only to the Samurai, Hagakure is a classic text on Bushido--the Way of the Warrior. More than just a handbook for battle, Hagakure is a text that filled with teachings that still apply in business, political and social situations today. <br /> This Xist Classics edition has been professionally formatted for e-readers with a linked table of contents.

Leboucher's 1843 text on how to learn cane fighting in 25 lessons is a window into the evolution of La Canne. It is also a highly practical manual on how to defend yourself with a cane, and whether or not these 25 lessons turn you into a human threshing machine capable of delivering "150 cuts per minute!" as Leboucher claims, it will certainly spark a few ideas. The excellent illustrations of sporting Frenchmen (dressed at the height of Parisian fashion for 1843) braining, swatting, thrashing, and maiming one another with whizzing hardwood canes are sure to amuse and enlighten.

This e-book contains 302 pages with 900 photos and 50-minute videos (updated February 2018). The E Tai Chi sequences demonstrated by the author can be watched on YouTube. <br /><br />E Tai Chi (the introduction) <br />https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SpGNjAtxPw<br /><br />E Tai Chi (the basic sequence) <br />https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QjbVILwHwCY<br /><br />E Tai Chi (the intermediate and advanced sequences)<br />https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Medo50cBNEc<br /><br />E Tai Chi (Ease or Easy Tai Chi) is the world’s simplest and safest Tai Chi exercise, which is invented by Dr. Yongxin Li, a practicing physician with a Ph. D. degree in physiology. It consists of sequences of simple and gentle circular hand/arm movements performed with natural walking or standing.<br /> <br />E Tai Chi is unique, original, scientific, effective, and infinite! It is for your personal health only, not for fighting or competition. Its characteristics can be summarized by Five S’s: Simplicity, Science, Safety, Strength, and Serenity.<br /><br />Simplicity. E Tai Chi is the ultimate simplest Tai Chi, which cannot be simplified any more. Besides regular standing or walking, E Tai Chi is made of only one circular hand/arm movement, which gives rise to six basic movements readily. <br /><br />Science. E Tai Chi is an entirely brand-new Tai Chi exercise system that is scientifically created for the purpose of simplicity, safety, and efficacy. It is not the rearrangement or modification of existing Tai Chi Forms. E Tai Chi is the essence of Tai Chi extracted from traditional Tai Chi and maintains the beauty of Tai Chi without its shortcomings such as being difficult to learn and causing joint injuries. <br /><br />Safety. The typical Tai Chi walk, the curved footwork, has been replaced by regular walking or slowed natural walking in E Tai Chi. You always face forward without making turns, squatting, or kicking. Because you walk sideways in most of the E Tai Chi postures, you can avoid over-flexion of the knees and maintain optimal knee/foot alignment. <br />Strength. In the E Tai Chi sequence, the majority of the postures involve walking sideways. E Tai Chi provides an efficient physical workout because sideways walking consumes over three times more energy than forward walking. <br /><br />Serenity. E Tai Chi combines Tai Chi with Qigong, a Chinese style body-mind exercise. This integration will enhance the efficacy of Tai Chi exercises. <br /><br />You can create your own E Tai Chi sequence by using the six basic hand movements and different ways of walking or standing. The six hand/arm movements can be transformed further into any movements of existing Tai Chi styles. Therefore, E Tai Chi has laid a solid foundation for you if you wish to pursue traditional Tai Chi forms in the future. <br /><br />E Tai Chi relaxes your body, reduces stress, promotes physical fitness, and cultivates the sensation of feeling good. Since E Tai Chi is simple and safe, you can easily incorporate it into your day to day life. If you want to practice Tai Chi and Qigong to improve your health, then E Tai Chi is the only Tai Chi and Qigong you need for the rest of your life. <br /><br />I have written three books on E Tai Chi:<br />1.E Tai Chi (The Basic Book) at Amazon.com. The basic book introduces the basics of E Tai Chi and the basic sequence. It has 170 pages with over 400 photos. <br />2.E Tai Chi (The Complete Book) at Amazon.com. The complete book has 302 pages with over 900 photos and includes all the E Tai Chi sequences.<br />3.E Tai Chi (The Science Book) coming soon. The book describes E Tai Chi’s scientific foundation, medical applications, various ways of practicing it, etc. <br />
