The Four-Hour Workweek  by Timothy Ferris (The premise is that there are shortcuts to the life you want. For the sake of this list, my choices for this section all revolve around books that are more about igniting passion and giving ideas rather than a step-by-step action plan. These books all DO have actionable steps to take, you will learn things, but I feel that their true purpose is as inspiration and motivation.
If you’re looking for another diet or exercise plan promising instant weight loss, this page is not for you. If you’re looking to suffer, starve and exhaust yourself into a slimmer body, this page is not for you.
Now get this—what I’ve just described is the typical day of a busy, modern person who practices Yoga. What’s more, you’ll enjoy all this without starving, eating nothing but smoothies and salads, and exhausting yourself with grueling exercise routines!
Is there any wonder millions of people are ditching diet fads and turning to this 5,000 year-old science for healthy weight loss? The answers, as you will find out in the next few lines, will give you a new lease on life.
Oprah Winfrey is such an ardent believer in Yoga that she had her staff do it at least once a week.
Jennifer Aniston does Yoga three times a week, and credits it for getting her in shape—both physically and emotionally.
The problem was, – like clockwork – the weight would just pile back on within a matter of weeks! This went on for years, to the point where I began wondering if I could ever get the weight and figure I had always wanted. I had a good instructor, and within weeks I was feeling healthier, more flexible and more calm than ever before.
You see back in the gym I was only scraping the surface, learning nothing more than physical Yoga postures (asanas).
But in this holy place I learned various forms of Yoga, including the traditional Hatha Yoga from great Yoga masters. Seeing the discipline, wisdom and serenity with which they lived their lives, I knew these yogis had much more to offer.
And I knew if I could get even a fraction of their personal wisdom, I’d be able to make massive improvements in my life too.
So I spent hours interviewing them, talking to them about their diets, holistic lifestyle, and the rituals they practiced every day. The secret lies in these incredibly simple 4 Pillars, that literally allow you to stretch, breath, eat and imagine yourself into a permanently slim and healthy you! Bette Calman is 83 years old, but she’s slimmer, fitter and healthier than most people half her age.
Bette has been teaching Yoga for over 40 years, running centers, appearing on TV and pioneering the Yoga movement in her home country, Australia. Yoga helps people shed pounds in middle age, concludes a study by the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. Over a 10 year period, the study found that middle-aged Yoga practitioners gained 30% less weight than their non-practicing counterparts.
A two-year study by the University of Otago in New Zealand found that women who followed a program of Yoga and meditation were successful in losing weight and keeping it off, while those who focused on dieting did not.
On average, the women who followed the yoga program lost over 5 pounds over a 2-year period, while those who dieted lost nothing. What’s more, the women from the Yoga group were found to be happier and healthier at the end of the study! For the last few years I have been thinking that Yoga consists of slow and boring relaxing exercises that will only make me sleepy.
Yoga does NOT require you to give up the things you love… so you can still do, eat, drink and experience the joys of modern life. Yoga will NOT take up much of your time at all… so you can still make time for it no matter how busy or stressed you are.
Yet still, by investing just a little time into discovering the secrets of Yoga, I was able to get the body, health and happiness that contemporary diet and slimming plans were never able to give me.
I’ve started teaching Yoga classes in my neighborhood, and my students enjoy the exact same results I have!
I’ve always been very active in different sports but suffered from lower back problems and found trying to touch my toes a very challenging feat. After 8 weeks of classes with Nika I began to notice considerable changes in my flexibility and strength of my abs. I work a 60-hour week and would come home from work on most days feeling tired and sluggish. You see after returning from that trip to India, I started to feel a growing sense of responsibility to share what I’ve learned. Because how can I sit back and let the weight loss industry continue to fuel people with false hope? So I sat down, and began compiling all the knowledge I learned in India, and through the numerous books I had read. What I have in my hands now is a refined, perfected and optimized version of Yoga’s best-kept secrets to a slimmer and healthier you. I want you to turn your life around, and finally know what it’s like to be permanently slim and healthy. Master the art of stretching with 8 tutorial videos (70 minutes in total) showing you every essential step of yoga’s unique stretching exercises for slimming. A collection of 5 easy-to-follow videos and a manual that will show you everything you need to know to master yoga’s Pranayama breathing techniques for slimming and wellbeing. Sit back, relax, and enter a state of mind conducive to weight loss as I walk you through the Guided Relaxation and Slimming Visualization in the 14 minute long audio. With this handy workbook, you don’t need to worry about where to start, where to end, or what module you should be focusing on.
Every day for 30 days, it’ll give you detailed steps on how to make the most out of the Slim4Life Program, and start losing weight the healthy way. You’ll be given a different objective each week, all of which are broken down into daily tasks like detoxing, melting away belly fat and improving flexibility.
By the end of these 30 days, you’ll feel slimmer, healthier and more energetic than ever before–guaranteed! The truth is clear and simple–your weight and health are not only determined by your physical habits.
It’s not enough just to diet and exercise, because emotional, mental and spiritual factors play a monumental role too.
You must remove yourself from the Fat Race, and begin a holistic relationship with your body.
Use the wisdom within my Slim4Life Program to treat your body with respect, love and kindness. Breathe: Special heating techniques to detoxify your body and efficiently burn and keep away fat cells.
Imagine: Guided visualization techniques to optimize your mind, body and soul for slimming.
Have you ever felt the stress, anguish and frustration of being forced to eat food you don’t enjoy? Because when you apply my teachings into your life, the fat, the unhealthy habits and the frustration all melt away automatically. Most people don’t know this, but your subconscious mind can be either your greatest asset or your worst enemy.
The kind of unhealthy food, substances like nicotine and caffeine and the poor lifestyle choices you once had a guilty pleasure for will almost magically become unappealing. I started taking classes with Nika with the idea of getting some exercise and hopefully some weight loss.
Today I do Yoga, I go to the gym regularly, I eat healthy food and never overeat and the results are amazing – 18 months of the Yoga practice helped me to lose 43 kg and build a healthy habits for a lifetime. Mark my words–when you assimilate the 4 Pillars of Enlightened Health into your life, temptation, self sabotage and dieting-induced stress will all become a distant memory. When you learn the breathing techniques and guided relaxation exercises in the Slim4Life Program, you’ll be gliding yourself into a natural, slimming-conducive state of serene relaxation. The mindful nature of Yoga creates a healthier response to stress, which in turn prevents stress-driven eating and lowers stress hormones.
If you work only on the body, you’re not addressing the thought patterns that cause stress. You’ll also learn how to stay slim by using your mind to adopt positive thinking habits and belief systems.
When you go through the Slim4Life Program, you’ll be immersed in the collective wisdom of these great thinkers, so you can not only stay slim, but stay happy and positive at the same time. So all I’m asking for is a figure that can help me recoup the months I spent learning and compiling the techniques and wisdom within this program.
I’ve been doing Yoga with Nika for the last 6 months and I am extremely satisfied with her ccourse for at least 3 reasons. Second, the flow of her course has everything in it you need to relax, breath properly, stretch and burn some calories. You’ll be pleasantly surprised with the commitment to quality and attention to detail in every part of Slim4Life. Upon using Slim4Life, you’ll notice virtually instant changes in the way you think and act. With a little persistence, Slim4Life will give you the slim, healthy and sexy body you want.
How is it that some seemingly ordinary people are able to achieve incredible goals with remarkable consistency?

In this collection of lessons, Cynthia reveals 7 of her most fascinating stories, and shows exactly what makes each of these people tick.

Disclaimer: The user experiences displayed on this page are a small sample of the hundreds of accounts from people who have used the SlimYogi materials. Published by Inspired Labs, Level 28, The Gardens South Tower, Mid Valley City, 59200 KL, Malaysia. To sum it up, before that book, I was a messy, disorganized person, and after, I was a clean, organized person. Admittedly, I know and have read, many books related to personal development and self improvement.
Brene Brown is a researcher at the University of Houston and her work centers on shame and vulnerability. The reason why I would say this book is my number one choice is because, for me, it truly bridges the gap between science and spirituality, and it reveals just how powerful our perceptions can be. Of course, Shinn was writing about the Law of Attraction but back then very few people had heard about it. Surrounded by unimaginable suffering and loss, Frankl began to wonder why some of his fellow prisoners were able not only to survive the horrifying conditions, but to grow in the process. Frankl’s book beautifully illustrates the power of attitude over circumstance.
This includes making time for our emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual needs each day, as well as having time for solitude, silence, and stillness. This book was pivotal in my understanding of how important small daily actions are to my overall health, happiness, and productivity. I found this book in the used book store while I was aimlessly walking to numb my then overwhelming pain. Katie shows you how to easily tune into these “thoughts” and how to take control of them, and thereby take control of your experience of life, helping you move from pain to paradise, almost effortlessly.
When Patrik asked me to reveal the book that had the biggest impact on my life; only one title sprang to mind. Quite simply, it has everything you need to get up off your ass and start living the life you truly want. As you can imagine, this led to some crazy situations involving an impromptu trip to an Amsterdam sex club, a meeting with a Nigerian scam artist and a request to visit Barcelona to meet his Spanish equivalent.
I chose this book because I think its content is applicable to achieving success in almost any different area of life.
That’s a great and very fitting quote Thea, thank you for that and for your contribution to this post. I know chances are great you’re already in the habit of reading personal development books but if you are NOT, definitely make it part of your daily routine!
Think about it: We have physical books, books for e-readers, books on CD and books om mp3s… You can even download books to your iphone now! That means you can read – or listen to – your personal development books while in line at the bank or waiting at the train station, driving your car, working out at the gym, cooking dinner or going about a number of other daily activities! So, all that being said, here are my top three tips for how to get the most of your personal development books. When it comes to physical books, forget trying to keep ’em looking all clean and perfect. This is a fabulous way to better remember what you read and better understand how to apply it! When it comes to ways that you can pass on the knowledge, your options are practically endless. When it comes to deliberate application of all the wonderful, life changing ideas that they learn about, well, this is where a lot of folks drop the ball. They don’t take action with what they read… And so nothing ever really changes for them. You want to make sure you’re both a reader AND a doer, and the way to go about it is to create specific actions steps for yourself with deadlines (write them down)! The fact that it’s OUT of your head, down on paper, and at least one other person (a friend, spouse, business partner) has been let in on your action plan, makes ALL the difference. Say, as an example, you’ve come to realize how critical it is to your personal happiness to exercise forgiveness toward those that have hurt you (life changing truth).
As a result, by this Saturday you’re committed to making a sincere attempt to reconcile with your estranged brother (specific step of action with specific deadline). You also tell your friend about it, asking them to check in with you next week to make sure you did what you said you’d do (accountability). Do you see how vastly different this is from merely plowing through personal development books but not doing anything with what you read? If you want to develop yourselves, one of the best ways is by reading self-improvement books. In reality every single book on this (now 175+ title) list is a great personal development book. This list includes, the grandfathers of all self help books, and it also has some of the modern masters of inspiration, education and self-empowerment.
You spend 15 minutes doing light stretching exercises before having breakfast and getting dressed for work.
You visit an outdoor cafe near your workplace, and order one of your favorite meals—maybe pasta, maybe a sandwich.
You have dinner with the family, watch a movie together, and get ready to retire for the night. She devoted an entire segment on her show to Yoga with celebrity teacher Rodney Yee, and talked about its benefits on her show and her website.
I’d starve myself, go on ridiculous low-carb diets, eat salads for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and eventually lose a few pounds here and there. For someone who had always thought Yoga was for bearded men in caves, it was an eye-opening experience for me. I decided if I was going to reap the full benefits of Yoga, I’d have to do my own research. The kind of people who spent decades in ashrams, dedicating their lives to mastering Yoga in its purest, most powerful form.
I bought a ticket to India, and enrolled myself at the Yoga Vidya Gurukul, a renowned Yoga University in Nasik. There’s a common misconception out there that Yoga is an extreme religious practice, which makes many people scared to even try it! I live in an apartment, I run a business, I have a wonderful husband, and I enjoy partying, eating out, movies, music and traveling as much as anyone else! Nika is a brilliant teacher – she is patient and knowledgeable, and very effective at introducing slightly more challenging stretches, just when you think you’ve mastered the previous set!
I found my back hurt less and my performance in other sports, such as squash, improved as well!
I sorted everything according to the 4 Pillars of Enlightened Health, transcribed the interviews with the yogis, listed down the numerous techniques, and refined every nugget of wisdom.
In the manual you’ll also learn a series of powerful tools to help you change your thoughts patterns for permanent weight loss.
These are the ancient lifestyle principles on which the Slim4Life Program is designed, and they are the key to holistic and lasting weight loss.
That’s why I’ve designed the Slim4Life Program to be used anywhere, whether from the comfort of your living room, in the office, or even on your way to work! And if you deal only with the mental side of things, you’re ignoring the biochemical and physiological changes that stress can bring. The guide books and the ingredients alone could easily cost you hundreds of dollars, while the stress and frustration that follows could cost you your sanity! Like I mentioned earlier, getting this information out to you is way more important to me than making a huge profit. The only way you could get them otherwise is if you spent thousands of dollars on a trip to India, lived for months in an ashram with some of the wisest yogis on the planet, and read hundreds of books on Yoga, fitness, dieting and personal development.

Forget all that I’ve said, and pray the next diet fad gives you the results you want. Because as I’ve shown you, settling for anything less would be an injustice to you and your body. Do I need to be an experienced Yoga practitioner to enjoy the benefits of the Slim4Life Program?
Depending on your own pace, you’ll start to see changes to your weight, shape and fitness within a matter of weeks. As I mentioned in the previous question, everything in the Slim4Life Program is based on proven 5,000 year old weight loss techniques. You will learn the same powerful ideas whether you play it on a DVD or watch it on your iPod and laptop. Once you make your order you can instantly access and download all the videos, audios and manuals and consume them anywhere, even without internet access. The small sum you invest in the Slim4Life Program will easily pay for itself thousands of times over in the long run.

I love getting to know my students and helping in any way I can, so you can always count on my support.
However, in compliance with FTC rulings, I cannot guarantee that these results are typical. Besides making us a whole lot smarter research has shown that it can also improve memory, slow down the progress of Alzheimers and Dementia, reduce stress, improve sleep, strengthen analytical thinking skills, improve focus and concentration, increase empathy and ease depression. It caused a big paradigm shift for me by making me understand the importance of now and realize how much energy I was expending on the past and future!
I read that book at a time when I really needed to hear that my own happiness was a good enough motivation for making big decisions. Even though I don’t follow the GTD system now (too complex), the principles and concepts in the book alone are worth it.
Stuart’s book shows you how to consolidate your inherent power and transcend all limitations by releasing yourself from the constraints of the ego.
There’s a ton of different information spanning a variety of topics, but my favorite elements was the parts that revealed why we do what we do.
There are so many terrific books that have changed my life in some essential way that it’s hard to choose. The book shares research that totally changes the way that we look at the role of DNA, and how our body’s cells respond to changes in our environment. Through this book, I’ve learned that we are not victims of our DNA, but rather our DNA will respond to the environment, which is based completely on our perceptions. If you have read it once and didn’t get something, give it another chance and read it one more time.
My college-aged cousin said she had read a book about how you could ask the Universe to provide whatever you need in life and it would show up. Despite extreme physical and mental hardships, he was able to find meaning in life and turn that belief into purposeful actions that enabled him to survive when so many others did not. Ultimately if we are willing to nourish these domains of life we can live with greater purpose and passion, and will be a better person all the way around. It helped me get a more stable rhythm in my life and understand that nourishing myself is these different areas will allow me to approach life from a more whole and powerful state of mind. It explains that visualization adds value to everything and thinking big means training oneself to see not just what is, but what can be. It’s a compelling fiction story about a man named Jeff Winston who suddenly dies at the age of forty-three and wakes up in his 18 year-old body back in college.
Loving What Is is about learning how to escape suffering, anxiety sadness and depression in life. I believe that unhappiness and feeling unfulfilled by life are two of the biggest challenges facing our generation today. The book is about the sixteen fundamental principles of success that Hill found from studying the richest, most productive, and successful men alive at the time and in the past. The book is about calming and quieting your mind so you can bring your Highest and Best self to each moment and live the way you’ve always wanted to live.
For someone who’s naturally social, reading this book would be a waste of their time.
It is marketed as a children’s book, but the lessons that I gleaned from it (and the reason that I give it to EVERYONE I know and like as a gift) is that life is all a matter of perspective.

Just what is needed,specific instructions to act on your reading and not just keep aside for some day in the future, for it won’t happen unless you act. In addition to already know him, do business with them is an effort of mutual cooperation to develop together. As you lie in bed, you listen to a 15 minute relaxation audio, and fall asleep feeling calm and relaxed. What’s more, by the time I interviewed them these yogis had already imparted their knowledge onto over 15,000 people–and each and every one of them ended up slimmer, healthier and a lot happier than ever before! Today is my last day of the Slim4Life Program but the beginning of my long journey with YOGA ?? I have simply fallen in love with it! I soon found out that her lessons aren’t boring and are easy to follow, therefore I have decided to give it a try. My posture has improved and I have strengthened my knees (before even climbing the stairs was painful). One of the attributes I appreciate most is her ability to explain what each stretch, or combination of stretches, is aiming to achieve.
One of the best things about yoga and the routines Nika teaches is that you can do them on your own. I am able to stretch and do the kinds of poses that I never imagined myself to be doing 4 months ago. I’ve read countless books and attended seminars by personal development icons like Anthony Robbins, Oprah Winfrey, T. And Yoga with Nika is something extremely relaxing you can look forward to, and then it brings all the results you want! Best of all, unlike traditional dieting, the results will stick with you for life, so you never again have to struggle with your weight. You can opt for FREE personal coaching, or a prompt and courteous refund within 60 days of your date of purchase.
I think, if anything, one of the most exciting things about Yoga is that as I get older I seem to get better at certain parts of the practice, which is very inspiring. This program is designed so that complete beginners and experienced practitioners alike can experience the healthy and lasting slimming effects of Yoga. The Slim4Life Program is a holistic solution to weight loss, and is the only weight loss tool you’ll ever need. The benefits of Yoga have been documented time and time again by countless scientific studies (some of which are mentioned in the above article), and are 100% safe. It’s brilliantly designed to account for all of your life inputs, but it does take some time and effort to manage the system and keep up with it.
Once you understand things like your emotional state, evaluations, and belief life becomes a whole lot easier to design so that you are always operating within a peak state. Her Ted Talk on this subject has almost 14 million views and I highly recommend it as well.
The idea of asking the Universe for what you wanted in life and getting it seemed a magical one. I am also selecting it because it makes these ideas easily accessible so they can be applied in your life. The whole idea of changing your attitude to be happy is explained so well with real success stories that truly motivate and inspire.
All emotions we experience in life begin as thoughts in our mind, though most of the time, the thoughts that trigger our emotions happen so quickly, we’re not even aware we’ve had them.
Loving What Is teaches you how to reverse many of those feelings in such a simple way, it’s almost unbelievable.
Once you have read it you should go back to it every once in a while and find something new in it to apply. To make it easy for you to get an overview of all the amazing books mentioned in this post I’ve created a list of them over at GoodReads. Ranging from well-known motivation author in the country until the world’s best-selling author (translations).
And there’s certainly no need to continue lining the pockets of those who are out to deceive you. Thanks to Yoga with Nika my lifestyle changed completely: I became more aware of my body, I started eating healthy food and exercising more.
And best of all, these changes will become increasingly distinct in the coming days, weeks and months. What I am promising is a lasting change to your habits and lifestyle, which will result in permanent weight loss. You can obviously use your lucid dreams to have fun, but it’s a very strong tool to build up your motivation and confidence so you can achieve anything. I’d been raised to believe that life happened ‘to you’ but here was this book saying that life happens ‘through you’ and that you have the power to orchestrate what you wish to have happen!
I improved my posture and flexibility and I really enjoyed the relaxation and visualization techniques after my busy and active day! Thanks Nika, with your warm attitude and guidance you can transform even the most unfit and inflexible person into a slim and healthy Yoga fan. I have been practicing yoga with Nika twice a week for the last few months and I can already see a significant improvement.
Lucid dreaming is a powerful tool because you can live out your dreams in real time instead of just thinking about them.
I also appreciate that this book is a great entry point for anybody who is new to the self-growth genre, yet it presents a myriad of advanced ideas to hold the attention of experts and masters. I highly recommend the series to anyone seeking to make a powerful change in his or her life. What’s compelling is that even though he knows the future of the outside world, his individual choices always lead to a uniquely different lifestyle. The choices we make today will ultimately determine what happens for the rest of our lives.
It also allowed me to move through each day with a peace of mind and a sense of fulfillment. Please check with your doctor before beginning this or any weight loss or exercise program.
