The Code of the Extraordinary Mind by Vishen Lakhiani
Vishen refers to bad ideas as “Bullshit Rules,” or Brules. He says that a person with a “extraordinary mind” questions the Brules who aren’t in line with their dreams and wants. There are people who think that Brules are still important even though they’ve been around for years and years and years. â€
The author doesn’t think we should get rid of moral and ethical standards. Instead, he thinks we should look at beliefs that make us think we should call our parents every day or work until we are exhausted every week because we aren’t working hard enough.
The Power Source by Lauren Roxburgh
All of our energy and strength comes from the pelvic floor, which is at the bottom of our body. If our pelvic floor is weak, we won’t be able to handle stress well, or we won’t get enough energy to the rest of our body because of it. As a result, if we don’t pay attention to the health of our pelvic floor, we’ll all be missing out on a very important part of our overall health. In The Power Source, you’ll learn how to build strength in your body and in your life by following a holistic, multisensory program that starts with your pelvic floor.
The Power Source shows how and why our pelvic floor is so important from a number of different angles, from how it moves our bodies to how it affects our nervous system to how it is the source of all life energy. In this video, Roxburgh shows how it connects to other parts of our bodies, or “containers,” both physically and energetically. Even more important, she gives readers a plan for how they can change the way they think about strength so that their bodies and their lives are aligned.
