The Simple Secrets to Success: The easy way to achieve everything you’ve ever wanted in life. Shane Ellis
This book paves the way on how to actually implement the new years resolutions you made only a month ago, and how to stick to them. This is, as the tag line says, the easy way to achieve everything you’ve ever wanted in life. A bold claim, yes, and while it won’t tell you how to win the lottery, it will give you seven simple step to achieve your goals.
Written by lawyer Shane Ellis, the book covers offers ways to achieve a life even though you work, relationship success and a way to turn around a negative lifestyle. After near burnout five years ago, the author decided to reinvent himself and in doing so became conscious of “secret” ways to better succeed in life. The trick is in breathing, hydration, eating habits, grandstanding, educational kinesiology exercises, actions for success plans, switching off and cooling down. That’s seven, to save you counting.
While the book is essentially another of the ubiquitous self-help books saturating an already flooded market, it offers some inspiring and helpful suggestions on ways to grow — in each of the mental, emotional, physical senses. The book is about working with your brain and neurology and having you perform at your best.
Ellis offers some interesting facts many of us won’t know: “Every day we breathe in and out on average 28,800 breaths of air (10,512,000 breaths per year) and drink on average two to three litres of fluids. Men need on average 2,550 calories of food and women 1,940.”
Also, did you know that the average person eats for three and a half years, consumes about 7,300 eggs and eats approximately 160kg of chocolate? But then he offers some facts that we may already know: “If we stop breathing we die.”
