Description

The master entrepreneur and two-time New York Times bestselling author shares the most basic tool to successful living: meditation.

In Success Through Stillness , Russell Simmons, the original hip-hop mogul, illustrates the intimate connection between inner peace and outward success. A meditator for the past fifteen years, Simmons has trained with meditation and yoga masters and has worked with and observed other highly successful fellow meditators including Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, Russell Brand, and Forest Whitaker. Russell shares how meditation has contributed to the success of these innovators as well as other leaders in business, art, and entertainment, along with research that explores both mind and body benefits of meditation and how learning to be still has been instrumental in sustaining his own career. In Success through Stillness , Simmons lays out the simplest path to stillness, no matter who you are or even if you think meditating isn't 'right for you.' Meditation is a tool that will help you:

Find greater clarify and focus throughout your workday to increase your productivity. Unlock your creativity by allowing your inspiration to be heard over life's distractions. Physically change your brain so that you're less stressed and more energized. Build better relationships by tuning into others' best qualities. Break out of dysfunctional and harmful cycles. Achieve an individual state of peace that can contribute to a larger, collective stillness. Lower your blood pressure and stress levels, as well as eat healthier.

Success Through Stillness is a beginner's guide to utilizing the mental toolbox we are all born with, but often forget how to use, to reach our full potential. Through meditation, we can learn to string together the moments of tranquility and clarity we experience day to day, helping us push past distractions and finally get our hands on all the power that we inherently possess.

Master entrepreneur and visionary Russell Simmons has influenced virtually all aspects of business and media: in music with the cofounding of the immensely successful Def Jam Recordings; in the fashion industry witht he trailblazing Phat Farm, Baby Phat, Run Athletics, and Def Jam University clothing lines; in television with HBO's Def Comedy Jam and Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry; on broadway with the Tony Award-winning stage production Russell Simmons Def Poetry Jam ; in digital with All Def Digital, All Def Music, and Narrative; as well as numerous other venture sint he finacial services industry, mobile communications, and philanthropy.

display_description "Master entrepreneur, original hip-hop mogul, and New York Times bestselling author Russell Simmons shares the most fundamental key to success-meditation-and guides readers to use stillness as a powerful tool to access their potential. In the New York Times bestseller Super Rich, Russell Simmons proved that to be rich is more than just having money in the bank-wealth is about balance, joy, and conscientious living. In Success Through Stillness, Simmons shows the connection between inner peace and outward success through interviews with other successful leaders in various industries, and how learning to be still has been instrumental in his own career. Simmons attributes his meditation practice with changing his life for the better and says that there is no "bad" way to meditate, only different forms for different people. In this highly anticipated new book, Russell Simmons guides readers into finding greater clarity and focus, and explains how to be healthier in both mind and body.
