<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>

This book examines one of the world’s most enduring and influential literary works, the <i>Dao De Jing</i>, through the timeless art of qigong. In his words, Lao Tzu (or Laozi), author of the <i>Dao De Jing</i>, embodies qigong principles, advocating the cultivation of mind and body. Only when we know qigong can we know Lao Tzu —and only when we know Lao Tzu can we know the <i>Dao De Jing</i>.<br /><br /> <br /><br />Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming, a renowned author, scholar, and martial artist, devoted decades to researching and writing this book. He interprets and analyzes the 81 chapters of the <i>Dao De Jing</i>. His commentary will bring new insight, inspiration, and depth to your understanding of Lao Tzu’s words—and to your qigong practice.<br /><br /> <br /><br />“Many chapters in the <i>Dao De Jing</i> purely talk about qigong,” Dr. Yang writes, “especially the practices of regulating the body, breathing, mind, qi, and spirit.”<br /><br /> <br /><br />Lao Tzu’s writing has been read, translated, and discussed around the globe. It deals with principles that transcend time and culture. That is why this ancient text has been reimagined countless times in books on business, relationships, and parenting—but never with a focus on the art of qigong. This makes <i>Dao De Jing: A Qigong Interpretation</i> unique and indispensible.<br /><br /> <br /><br />This book includes<br /><br /> • The complete <i>Dao De Jing</i> in English and its original Chinese text<br /> • Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming’s commentary and analysis of each chapter<br /> • Numerous illustrations and diagrams<br /><br /> <br /><br /><i>Dao De Jing: A Qigong Interpretation</i> is not a book of instruction. It is about the Way—the path before us, in qigong and in life, where what you achieve comes through your own understanding.

The “100 Secrets” section of this course was first published as a two-part article in The Dinosaur Files newsletter a very long time ago – as in, back in the late 1990s. The two-part series may have been the most popular article that ever appeared in The Dinosaur Files, and I received tremendous feedback on it. Over the years, I’ve seen many of the ideas that I presented in the two-part series move from being considered “pretty far-out” to becoming mainstream training methods for combat athletes around the world. I've also seen combat athletes who used Dinosaur methods win top competitions, including at least two World championships in grappling arts. <br /><br />You’ll also see plenty of other athletes using these training methods – including football players, rugby players, and basketball players at the high school, college/university and professional levels. The head coach of one NFL team liked my workout ideas and general philosophy so much he bought copies of Dinosaur Training for every player on the team – one top strength coach who works with members of the legendary All Blacks rugby team teaches these methods to his athletes – and a famous NBA strength coach sent me a very nice letter about Dinosaur Training methods back when he was working with the Chicago Bulls and a guy named Michael Jordan. <br /><br />In addition, you may be interested to know that a man who taught tactical self-defense to members of Canadian law enforcement was a big fan of Dinosaur Training – and taught his students many of the methods covered in this course. Yes, the Mounties train Dino-style!<br /><br />But since we’re 20 years down the road, many current fans of Dinosaur Training missed the “100 Secrets” articles the first time around. With that in mind, I’ve decided to bring it back in the form of a training course.<br /><br />I’ve updated and revised the articles, and I’ve added plenty of bonus material. So even if you saw the two-part series in The Dinosaur Files, there’s plenty of new material for you in this course. And if all of what follows is new material for you, then you’re in for a real treat – and you’re about to learn some very important information. <br /><br />It’s been a pleasure to put this course together for you, and I hope you enjoy and benefit from it. Thanks for reading, and I wish you the very best of success!<br /><br />Yours in strength,<br /><br />Brooks Kubik

Along with Sun Tzu's <i>The Art of War</i>, <i>The Book of Five Rings</i> is considered to be one of the most insightful texts on the subtle arts of confrontation and victory to emerge from Asia. Composed in 1643 by the famed duelist and undefeated samurai Miyamoto Musashi, <i>The Book of Five Rings</i> analyzes the process of struggle and mastery over conflict that underlies every level of human interaction. For Musashi, the way of the martial arts was a mastery of the mind rather than simply technical prowess—and it is this path to mastery that is the core teaching in <i>The Book of Five Rings</i>. This brilliant manifesto is written not only for martial artists but for anyone who wants to apply the timeless principles of this text to their life.

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. Exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist Stacy T. 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. Customizable meal plans and strengthening exercises come together in a comprehensive plan to build a rock-solid fitness foundation as you build lean muscle where you need it most, strengthen bone, and boost power and endurance. Because women’s physiology changes over time, entire chapters are devoted to staying strong and active through pregnancy and menopause. No matter what your sport is—running, cycling, field sports, triathlons—this book will empower you with the nutrition and fitness knowledge you need to be in the healthiest, fittest, strongest shape of your life.
