<b>***A Worldwide Bestseller in 17 Languages!***</b><br /> <div>                 <div><b>Lasting Change For Early Quitters, Burnouts, The Unmotivated, And Everyone Else Too</b></div><div></div><br /><div>When I decided to start exercising consistently 10 years ago, this is what <i>actually</i> happened:</div><div><ul><li>I tried "getting motivated." It worked sometimes. </li><li>I tried setting audacious big goals. I almost always failed them.</li><li>I tried to make changes last. They didn't.</li></ul></div><div></div><br /><div>Like most people who try to change and fail, I assumed that <i>I</i> was the problem. </div><div></div><br /><div>Then one afternoon--after another failed attempt to get motivated to exercise--I (accidentally) started my first mini habit. I initially committed to do one push-up, and it turned into a full workout. I was shocked. This "stupid idea" wasn't supposed to work. I was shocked again when my success with this strategy continued for months (and to this day). <i>I had to consider that maybe I wasn't the problem in those 10 years of mediocre results. Maybe it was my prior strategies that were ineffective, despite being oft-repeated as "the way to change" in countless books and blogs. </i><br /><br />I was right.</div><div></div><br /><div><b>Is There A Scientific Explanation For This? </b></div><div>As I sought understanding, I found a plethora of scientific studies that had answers, with nobody to interpret them correctly. Based on the science--which you'll find peppered throughout <i>Mini Habits--</i>we've been doing it all wrong. </div><br /><div></div><div>You <i>can</i> succeed without the guilt, intimidation, and repeated failure associated with such strategies as "getting motivated," New Year's Resolutions, or even "just doing it." In fact, you need to stop using those strategies if they aren't giving you great results. They don't work because they all require you to fight against your subconscious brain (a fight not easily won). It's only when you start playing by your brain's rules and taking your human limitations seriously--as mini habits show you how to do--that you can achieve lasting change.</div><br /><b>What's A Mini Habit?</b><br />A mini habit is a very small positive behavior that you force yourself to do every day; its "too small to fail" nature makes it weightless, deceptively powerful, and a superior habit-building strategy. You will have no choice but to believe in yourself when you're always moving forward. The barrier to the first step is so low that even depressed or "stuck" people can find early success and begin to reverse their lives right away. And if you think one push-up a day is too small to matter, I've got one heck of a story for you!<div><br /><b>Aim For The First Step</b><br />They say when you aim for the moon, you'll land among the stars. Well, that doesn't make sense, as the moon is closer than the stars. I digress. The message is that you should aim very high and even if you fall short, you'll still get somewhere. I've found the opposite to be true in regards to productivity and healthy behaviors. When you aim for the moon, you'll won't shoot because it's too far away. But when you aim for the step in front of you, you might just keep going and reach the moon.<br /><br /><b>I've used the Mini Habits strategy to get into the best shape of my life, read 10x more books, and write 4x as many words.</b> It started from requiring one push-up from myself every day. How ridiculous is that? Not so ridiculous when you consider the science of the brain, habits, and willpower. The <i>Mini Habits</i> system works because it's how our brains are designed to change.</div><div></div><br /><div>I relished the opportunity to share this life-changing strategy with the world. I loved writing <i>Mini Habits.</i> You'll see my passion in the content as well as the overall quality and presentation of the book. <br /><br /><b>Note:</b> This book isn't for eliminating bad habits (though some principles could be useful for breaking habits). Mini Habits is a strategy to create permanent healthy habits. Some categories include: exercise, writing, reading, thinking positively, meditating, drinking water, eating healthy foods, etc.</div></div><div>            </div>

Women are not small men. Stop eating and training like one. <br /><br />Because most nutrition products and training plans are designed for men, it’s no wonder that so many female athletes struggle to reach their full potential. <i>ROAR</i> is a comprehensive, physiology-based nutrition and training guide specifically designed for active women. This book teaches you everything you need to know to adapt your nutrition, hydration, and training to your unique physiology so you can work with, rather than against, your female physiology.

Sims, PhD, shows you how to be your own biohacker to achieve optimum athletic performance.<br /><br />Complete with goal-specific meal plans and nutrient-packed recipes to optimize body composition, <i>ROAR </i>contains personalized nutrition advice for all stages of training and recovery.

<div><p>In 2008, 26&#150year&#150old Tik Maynard faced a crossroads not unlike that of other young adults. A university graduate and modern pentathlete, he suffered both a career&#150ending injury and a painful breakup, leaving him suddenly adrift. The son of prominent Canadian equestrians, Maynard decided to spend the next year as a “working student.” In the horse industry, working students aspire to become professional riders or trainers, and willingly trade labor for hands&#150on education. Here Maynard chronicles his experiences&#150good and bad&#150and we follow along as one year becomes three, what began as a casual adventure gradually transforms, and a life's purpose comes sharply into focus.</p> <br /> <p>Over time, Maynard evolved under the critical eyes of Olympians, medal winners, and world&#150renowned figures in the horse world, including Anne Kursinski, Johann Hinnemann, Ingrid Klimke, David and Karen O'Connor, Bruce Logan, and Ian Millar. He was ignored, degraded, encouraged, and praised. He was hired and fired, told he had the “wrong body type to ride” and that he had found his “destiny.” He got married and lost loved ones. Through it all he studied the horse, and human nature, and how the two can find balance. And in that journey, he may have found himself.</p></div>

<p>For decades, distinct professional wrestling territories thrived across North America. Each regionally based promotion operated individually and offered a brand of localized wrestling that greatly appealed to area fans. Promoters routinely coordinated with associates in surrounding regions, and the cooperation displayed by members of the National Wrestling Alliance made it easy for wrestlers to traverse the landscape with the utmost freedom. </p><br /><p>Dozens of territories flourished between the 1950s and late ’70s. But by the early 1980s, the growth of cable television had put new outside pressures on promoters. An enterprising third-generation entrepreneur who believed cable was his opportunity to take his promotion national soon capitalized on the situation. </p><br /><p>A host of novel ideas and the will to take chances gave Vincent Kennedy McMahon an incredible advantage. McMahon waged war on the territories and raided the NWA and AWA of their top talent. By creating <cite>WrestleMania</cite>, jumping into the pay-per-view field, and expanding across North America, McMahon changed professional wrestling forever. </p><br /><p>Providing never-before-revealed information, <cite>Death of the Territories</cite> is a must-read for fans yearning to understand how McMahon outlasted his rivals and established the industry’s first national promotion. At the same time, it offers a comprehensive look at the promoters who opposed McMahon, focusing on their noteworthy power plays and embarrassing mistakes.</p>

Why having your windows up in a mob surrounding your vehicle is not the best strategy.<br /> Why riots and contact lenses don't mix<br /> What four things do bad guys do right before they attack you?<br /> Why RUN, HIDE & FIGHT during an active killer/shooter event is wrong and what is better.<br /> Why soft skills constitute 75% of self-protection and what exactly they are.<br /> A less than ten dollar security kit that will keep you safe in sketchy hotels.<br /> Scams to avoid and tricks the pickpockets use so you don't lose your money to them.<br /> ATM, Vehicles, Hotels, On Foot, In Planes and Airports...it's all covered.<br /> Home security tips<br /> Which martial arts work and which ones don't and how to pick a good instructor.<br /> Resources used by the pros. <br /><br /> Self Defense tips for men and women from a lifetime of protecting clients in hostile environments. Includes avoidance and awareness skills of the professional protection agent as well as dynamic, pressure tested techniques.<br /><br /> The problem with the majority of self-defense books is they begin with the victim being attacked. "The bad guy is coming at you with a knife." "You're being strangled." In reality, 75% of self defense starts way before the punches begin to fly.<br /><br /> Violent attacks always begin with SELECTION. Whether it's which house to break into, which car to steal, or which victim to rape someone, or something has to be chosen. What if there was a way to learn how bad guys choose their victims, and what if you could learn tricks of the bodyguard to lessen your risk of ever being chosen in the first place? How much would a skill like that be worth to you?<br /><br /> Next comes ISOLATION. Crimes usually happen on the periphery of public events or in parking lots or homes, away from the prying eyes of witnesses and cameras. If you could learn situational awareness skills and how to conduct counter-surveillance and heighten your awareness then you'd know in advance you were being set up.<br /><br /> After you've been selected and isolated there will be a distraction phase usually consisting of some VERBAL patter, designed to distract you while the criminal gets close enough to launch his attack. This is why it really doesn't matter if you have a weapon on you that you're relying on. At that distance - less than seven feet - the empty hand will always beat the attempt to produce the weapon.<br /><br /> Finally, the fourth phase is the attack. If you could master the first 3 phases i.e. how to recognize them and deal with them, then you needn't get into the hard skills portion in the first place. How smart is that.<br /><br /> As if that's not enough the book is going to teach you all sorts of useful information with regards to self-protection. What about the four pre-fight indicators almost every criminal uses before he hauls off and hits you? What exactly is Adrenalin and how is it going to help or hinder you in a fight? What should you do in a hotel to stay safe? What about an aircraft or a riot? What are the rules pertaining to defending yourself so you don't end up in prison for doing so?<br /><br /> All of this and more is covered in the book the author's peers are saying is perhaps the best book of all time on the subject. <br /><br /><br /><br />Unlike most self defense books which begin with someone choking you or coming at you with a knife, "How To Be Your Own Bodyguard" takes a page from the bodyguard's playbook by avoiding trouble in the first place.<br /><br />Written by a former French Foreign Legionnaire and former bodyguard to the rich and famous the book is full of hundreds of techniques to recognize trouble as it's brewing and leave before it does, adhering to the bodyguard's role of "cover and evacuate."<br /><br />The section on hard skills i.e. what to do when all attempts to avoid trouble have failed, covers techniques that have been pressure tested by the author during his career as a bouncer, bodyguard and military police officer.
