For years Jim Loehr was the leading sports psycologist in America. Now he has translated his findings and his ideas to the corporate work place. There may be no one who has a more integrated view of what it takes--physically, emotionally, and mentally--to perform at the hightest level without sacrificing a sense of meaning and well-being. This book truly changed my life!

James Loehr tells us the key is not how to get rid of stress, but to learn to perform well under pressure. He has helped many professional athletes and corporate executives get into what he terms the Ideal Performance State (IPS). This zone is achieved by a balance of stress and recovery. IPS is characterized by calmness, relaxation and confidence.

Loehr explains how to learn to take a break from stress and identifies the different types of stresses that lead to certain downfall if not regularly abated. He applies the stress/recovery theory to both physical and mental realms. Also, too much recovery is erosive. The happiest and most productive people have a proper balance and oscillation between stress and recovery in their activites.

Here is a ritual that could help: Get up in the morning and merge your thoughts and actions together in the present by watching your breathing. Then ask yourself why you should fight today. You need a reason to rise your emotions. Then create a vision for the future and contrast it witht the present. Use affirmations to overcome weaknesses. Then, visualize how the day should go.

Many practical techniques and suggestions are offered to help achieve IPS such as affirmations, exercise, nutrition and humor development. Guard your sleep, eating schedule and recovery tactics. Every day is a battle for control of your response to life.

It may be true that you deserve a break today! Use these techniques to come back stronger.

This book encapsulates almost everything which it's taken me 10 years to learn as a fitness, lifestyle, and nutrition coach.

Stress For Success goes beyond what is taught in many university barchelors courses and was recommended by one of my professors, a psychologist. Much of the information in these pages reflects what clinical research is still showing 10 years after this book was first published.

This is a book that was way ahead of it's time and is more pertinent now because we have more people becoming ill because of being unable to cope with what they perceive as being stressful. It was exciting and informative to read, and the author does a good job of giving guidelines for how to live a healthy and happy life, and ways to adjust instead of reacting to events which we may perceive as being stressful.

Some of the nutritional guidelines are a little antiquated, but most of them are solid advice, and I love the way Loehr has taken a very holistic look at stress.

As a professional, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book to absolutely everyone.
