MIAMI, Fla. – March 22, 2010 – One of the most unique business books to ever be written has just been released in the U.S. (Wiley, 2010).
Mind Chi is the first book to combine wisdom from the ages pertaining to success and happiness with the latest neuroscience on how to rewire the brain.
“There’s a large application for business people who want more control of their lives at work and who want to set and reach goals,” said co-author Richard Israel. “We include how to resolve 50 business situations in the book. The aim is to help people develop new and productive ways of thinking and behaving. It provides simple mental exercises that take only eight minutes a day for one month to complete the metamorphosis.
The intriguing new practice described in Mind Chi was inspired by T’ai chi, a Chinese martial art employed since ancient times for health and well-being. Mind chi is a modern interpretation of T’ai chi created by the book’s co-authors, emphasizing mental exercises. It synthesizes positive psychology, mental wellness and eudemonics (study of happiness) into one easy-to-follow guide.
“If you’re willing to spend just eight minutes a day doing super simple brain exercises, your life can change completely,” added Vanda North, the book’s other co-author.
“Our techniques are designed to improve your control, willpower and focus with the end goal of enhancing success both in your personal and business life.”
The Mind chi process encourages you to ask: What is right about me, and how can I have more of it? How can I learn to direct my will to produce the outcomes I desire? Practiced for only 28 days, this new way of thinking transforms into a life-enhancing habit.
Each of the eight steps takes just one minute and can be employed throughout the day whenever convenient.
One example, designed to improve focus, concentration and clarity of thought, is called “One.” In One, you set a timer and silently repeat the word “one” until an intruding thought occurs. At that point say “two” over and over until another thought intrudes, at which point you say “three,” and so on. At the end of one minute note the number you reached. The goal is to be able to stay on “one” for 60 seconds with no other thoughts intruding. You will discover, the authors say, that the lower you are able to keep that number over time, the better you will find yourself concentrating and focusing throughout your day.

Mind Chi (ISBN 978-1-906465-58-2) is available through Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble and many other bookstores nation-wide. (Price $23.95)
