Do you frequently feel stressed, overwhelmed, depressed, anxious? Do your thoughts sometimes have too much control over you? What if you could focus your mind and find peace in any situation? We all face challenges — complex decisions, difficult personalities, constant demands on our time — but we don’t have to be at their mercy. By developing the skills outlined in this book, which create what author Kamal Sarma calls mental resilience, we become able to meet these challenges with clarity. Both warriors and monks have for centuries made training their minds, developing mental resilience, a key priority. Through this training, they are able to silence incessant mental chatter and live a life of awareness, peace, and focus. Kamal draws upon his roles as a former student of Eastern spiritual practices and a successful Western corporate advisor to present a step-by-step guide to developing mental resilience. Through a progressive program and a guided-practice CD, Kamal provides models and metaphors that will help you clear your mind of repetitive, unhelpful thoughts and improve your ability to make decisions. You will learn how to reduce stress, maintain clarity in any situation, and discover an abiding calm within.

About the author

Kamal Sarma had the unique opportunity of growing up with both Eastern and Western influences. He led the life of a typical Aussie kid until age thirteen, when he was sent away to finish school in an Indian ashram for five years. In this monastery environment, in addition to his training in meditation and yoga, he studied many world religions including Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and Hinduism. After leaving the ashram Kamal returned to Australia to pursue an international business career in management consulting, biotechnology, venture capital, and funds management. He has held senior positions in several organizations, including McKinsey and Company, Eli Lilly Pharmaceuticals, AMP Capital Investors, and St. George Bank. Kamal's life was turned upside down after the death of his child. To overcome his grief and depression, he returned to his childhood training in mental resilience. Currently Kamal is the director of Rezilium, a strategic leadership firm that works with senior executives to enhance their level of impact in the organizations they serve. He is also the cofounder of the Institute for Mental Resilience, which works to raise funds for orphanages around the world and provide solutions to counter the high rate of youth suicide. For over ten years Kamal has guided corporate executives in maintaining clarity and peace in their lives while meeting intense work demands and balancing their health and relationships. Kamal makes the complex workings of the mind easy to understand. He offers practical advice for training our minds to face the many challenges we encounter daily.

The latest groundbreaking tome from Tim Ferriss, the #1 New York Times best-selling author of The 4-Hour Workweek.
 
From the author:
 
“For the last two years, I’ve interviewed more than 200 world-class performers for my podcast, The Tim Ferriss Show. The guests range from super celebs (Jamie Foxx, Arnold Schwarzenegger, etc.) and athletes (icons of powerlifting, gymnastics, surfing, etc.) to legendary Special Operations commanders and black-market biochemists. For most of my guests, it’s the first time they’ve agreed to a two-to-three-hour interview. This unusual depth has helped make The Tim Ferriss Show the first business/interview podcast to pass 100 million downloads.
 
“This book contains the distilled tools, tactics, and ‘inside baseball’ you won’t find anywhere else. It also includes new tips from past guests, and life lessons from new ‘guests’ you haven’t met.
 
“What makes the show different is a relentless focus on actionable details. This is reflected in the questions. For example: What do these people do in the first sixty minutes of each morning? What do their workout routines look like, and why? What books have they gifted most to other people? What are the biggest wastes of time for novices in their field? What supplements do they take on a daily basis?
 
“I don’t view myself as an interviewer. I view myself as an experimenter. If I can’t test something and replicate results in the messy reality of everyday life, I’m not interested.
 
“Everything within these pages has been vetted, explored, and applied to my own life in some fashion. I’ve used dozens of the tactics and philosophies in high-stakes negotiations, high-risk environments, or large business dealings. The lessons have made me millions of dollars and saved me years of wasted effort and frustration.
 
“I created this book, my ultimate notebook of high-leverage tools, for myself. It’s changed my life, and I hope the same for you.”
