From Publishers Weekly
Simmons--rap impresario and founder of Def Jam Records, Phat Farm, and the Hip-Hop Summit, and with Morrow coauthor of Do You!--explores what it means to be truly rich and fulfilled through two tenets. The twin paths to enlightenment, according to Simmons, are, first, remaining fully conscious and connected to the world, and second, believing that the universe will then reward and flood you with gifts and opportunity--the second precept drawing heavily from the laws of attraction found in such books as The Secret. While these lofty ambitions may seem too fanciful, the steps are sensible and actionable. He encourages readers to re-evaluate what being prosperous means to them and incorporate giving back. Simmons urges readers to move to self-acceptance, live without regrets, and move past worry. With personal stories, he offers insight into his personal striving for peace and prosperity, and offers those willing to put in the effort an opportunity to achieve that same abundance. (Jan.)

~ Russell Simmons from Super Rich
Russell Simmons. Part vegan-yogi. Part pop icon. 100% awesome.
While getting inspired by Simmons' wisdom, I literally laughed out loud a number of times-- appreciating the audacity with which he shares some deep spiritual truths in the language of hip hop.
Somehow Simmons pulls it off and it's really inspiring to imagine his playful yet serious style inspiring people who otherwise might not be into stuff like meditation, yoga, and veganism to live more spiritually connected lives.
Here are some of my favorite Big Ideas:
Get on the Right Train - It's as simple as that.
Stillness - It's the fertile soil for goodness.
Junk Mail in the Mind - Gotta clean out the inbox, yo!
Slow & Steady - Is the key.
Mental Muscles - How to get ripped.
Here's to rockin' the "Two Cs" (Consciousness and Compassion) as we serve the world, my friend!

Studies show students go to college to get a great paying JOB and spend there lives trying make enough money to do what they really want....studies show that rarely makes millionaires......Simmons said he SAW something that EXCITED HIM in Hip Hop music and Simmons expanded on HIS PASSION. HIS PASSION for music/led him to great success...and FUN !!! ....Simmons did not have musical talent so he represented up and coming rappers. He became wealthy helping PEOPLE HAvE a GREAT TIME...promoting artists...and some became superstars....record deals followed VERY VERY VERY SMART,,,,,HE GOT RECORD LABELS TO CHASE HIM DOWN... ,,,,,,I add FUN and EXCITEMENT to products or experience. SIMPLE and Direct ..only draw back for me was the print size,,,I have to wear reading glasses,,,so I m loosing *cool points* Russell,,,,maybe edit the next book down and make the type larger.....we are getting older.... thts my tip to al writers make it easy to read and remember with good stories...we can repeat. UPLIFTING,,,,Following your FUN PASSION and helping others is a winner !!!!
