Strength training has been shown to speed up your metabolism more effectively than any other form of exercise, such as aerobics or cardiovascular exercise. This doesn´t mean you shouldn´t do these types of exercise though. However, if you want to lose weight you should realize lifting weights or doing some other form of strength training is vital to your success!

Self-esteem is the reputation you get with yourself. You develop this reputation through your actions. Competent, confident and courageous actions enhance self-esteem and build inner strength. Such experience leads to the conviction that you are competent to cope with the challenges of life - and the belief that you deserve happiness and success to be yours. The opposite is also true. Actions that sell yourself short, that take the easy road, that require less than your best effort chip away at your inner strength. You may fool others, but you never really fool yourself. In Succeeding Through Inner Strength, pioneering psychologist Nathaniel Branden explores self-esteem, its components, how to make it grow, and how, with enhanced self-esteem, you can move toward greater success and happiness in all areas of your life. What´s good in your life? What still needs to be done? Dr. Branden begins with these two deceptively simple questions, to lead you through an exploration of your self-esteem. You examine the confidence you hold in your abilities, the responsibility you take for your actions, and the conviction that you maintain even in life´s toughest moments. Dr. Branden encourages a level of awareness of your life that, in turn, improves both your relationship with yourself and all the relationships you share at home and at work. As your self-esteem grows you are better able to give and receive love, to express your emotional self more freely, and to accept the vulnerabilities, needs, and emotions of others. Succeeding Through Inner Strength is a ´´call to action´´. It is for anyone interested in building strength where it really matters, within.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1.

Does controlled chaos describe your everyday life? Have the deep hurts of your past paralyzed your ability to forgive? Has your addiction tried to give you one last knockout punch to ensure you never again try another recovery? Or is it that your tank is just on empty from auto-pilot living and life without purpose? This amazing journey we´re on dishes out unexpected twists and turns that jump out at us like thieves in the night, robbing us of every last ounce of joy and strength we possess. Dark days of turmoil and regret loom over us like ominous storm clouds that never give way to the sun. Minor setbacks that were once easy to maneuver can become mountains that all too often are impossible to scale. Let´s face it, life can go from a whisper to a roar in a New York second leaving us reeling and muttering, or at times screaming at the top of our lungs, ´´I can´t do this anymore!´´ If what I´m describing here is what your life looks like right now, be of good cheer. Believe it or not, it is here that there is hope and strength; here, where God´s very voice cries out to you. It says, ´´There is an answer to your problem, and there is freedom from the bondage!´´ There is a peace in the midst of this raging storm! You are worth it! God says in His Word, there will be trials and temptations, struggles and setbacks, but He has the answer, in fact, He is the answer! There is something your Creator has placed in the deepest core of your being that, honestly, not many ever tap into, but it contains the very life you were meant to live! I call it Soul Strength! Imagine never having to stay in the constant season of sorrow or be taken by temptation. God wants you to be unleashed from the beast of burden that continues to hold you captive. This is not pie in the sky thinking or the good life every late night infomercial offers, and it´s not the false hope sold on every corner packaged in self-help book. 1. Language: English.

A survivor´s awe-inspiring story of how she overcame tragedy and re-created herself as a wife, mother, and woman. She had a big job on Wall Street, a loving husband, and an infant son, and a confidence born of intelligence and beauty. But on 9/11, good fortune was no match for catastrophe. When a wall of flame at the World Trade Center burned more than 80 percent of her body, Lauren Manning began a 10-year journey of survival and rebirth that tested her almost beyond human endurance. Long before that infamous September day, Manning learned the importance of perseverance, relentless hard work, and a deep faith in oneself. So when the horrific moment of her near-death arrived, she possessed the strength and resilience to insist that she would not yield—not to the terrorists, not to the long odds, not to the bottomless pain and exhaustion. But as the difficult months and years went by, she came to understand that she had to do more than survive. She needed to undergo a complete transformation, one that would allow her to embrace her life and her loved ones in an entirely new way. Fleeing the burning tower, Manning promised herself that she would see her son´s face again. Courageous and inspiring, Unmeasured Strength tells the riveting story of her heroic effort to make that miracle—and so many others—possible. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lauren Manning.

Stress and anxiety affect us all - but some people seem to cope better than others. What makes the difference? If we learn to calm our minds, Easwaran says, we can find the center of strength within us all. Life will inevitably send trials, from minor irritations to major crises, but we can choose how to respond. We can learn to access the inner resources of energy, love, and wisdom we need to ride the waves of life minute by minute, day by day. It´s a simple idea, but one that goes deep - a truly calm mind can weather any storm. We learn to calm the mind through practice - there´s no magic about it. Respected author Eknath Easwaran taught his universal approach to meditation and spiritual living for 40 years, and he shares a wealth of practical experience, and wise, surprising insights into our dilemmas today. He´s always gentle, often funny, illustrating his advice with everyday anecdotes and inspiration from the world´s saints. Whether you´re feeling tested by life´s challenges, or just curious to know more about choosing your thoughts, these essays can guide you, uplift and entertain you - giving you the courage and the skill to try something different the next time you feel under pressure. Listening to this reading by British actor Paul Bazely, you can learn how to use a mantram (or mantra) to quiet the mind in any situation. You´ll find out how to slow down and stay in the present, so you can improve concentration, be more effective at work, and free yourself of unwanted anxieties and resentments. In later essays, Easwaran describes how to stay calm and kind when faced by others´ anger, or our own, and how, over time, by learning to calm the mind, each of us can become an instrument of peace. 1.
