Publisher's Summary

Master entrepreneur, original hip-hop mogul, and New York Times best-selling author Russell Simmons shares the most fundamental key to success - meditation - and guides listeners to use stillness as a powerful tool to access their potential.

In the New York Times best-seller Super Rich, Russell Simmons proved that to be rich is more than just having money in the bank - wealth is about balance, joy, and conscientious living.

In Success Through Stillness, Simmons shows the connection between inner peace and outward success through interviews with other successful leaders in various industries, and how learning to be still has been instrumental in his own career. Simmons attributes his meditation practice with changing his life for the better and says that there is no "bad" way to meditate, only different forms for different people.

In this highly anticipated new book, Russell Simmons guides listeners into finding greater clarity and focus, and explains how to be healthier in both mind and body. Simmons breaks down what he's learned from masters of meditation into a guide that is accessible to those unfamiliar with the practice.

    Story
    "Beginners must read"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    YES! It is simple to follow. Russell does a great job with giving interesting encounters in references with his experience, which is enjoyable and a good insight.

    Easy guide and encouragement for beginners in mediation who are looking to harness all the control that is available to them in life and ones self.

    Great quotes and excellent book suggestion at the end. I'm about to read the power of now, a suggestion Russell gave.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    -


    What does Herbert Point-Du-Jour bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    -


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    yes i did, it resonated a lot. Because you don't know your potential and the practices you have already been employing in your life, until it is in-front of your face. it gave me the insight and the strength to take greater action.

    Story
    "Exceptionally down to earth for Noobs & Beginners!"
    If you could sum up Success Through Stillness in three words, what would they be?

    Concise, Honest, Informative


    What did you like best about this story?

    It just has a down to earth no BS or mumbo jumbo intelletual fluff i've always associated meditation with from a very unlikely source and was give great and proven FACTS that have convinced me this is something i need to AT LEAST try


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The stuff about how it helps health and eathing habits with the part about studies to back it up... also the very easy meditation guide at the end which was short but left me feeling confident enough to try


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Mostly him bringing up his experiences and what drove him to seek meditation in the first place


    Any additional comments?

    Wish there were more books as direct and down to earth as this, will be checking out more of Russells books as talking down to earth, direct and sensible without preachiness or jargon

    Story
    "Great insights into meditation"
    Would you listen to Success Through Stillness again? Why?

    Yes parts of it.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The story spends way too much time focusing on the benefits. After the first few, I got it. However the story seemed to drag on.

    Story
    "GREAT BOOK. I REALLY ENJOY ALL OF RUSSELL'S BOOKS."
    Where does Success Through Stillness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This would probably be the most beneficial in having an immediate impact on my life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Success Through Stillness?

    Monkey's throwing crap. LOL Describing the cloth with the Yellow Paint. Sitting with your spine straight opens your chest, which opens you up to all of the wonderful things in the universe.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The last chapter where he explained the poses and the mantras and just wrapped up everything. He was extremely encouraging while stressing the tremendous benefits of quieting your mind.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Allow the thoughts to come and keep repeating the mantras and the thoughts will eventually pass. Compassion is your greatest resource for success.


    Any additional comments?

    I really look forward to incorporating meditation into my lifestyle for 20 minutes 2 times per day.

    "20 minutes a day"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have always been interested in meditation but felt I couldn't do it. I also couldn't bring myself to pay $1,000 or more for transcendental. This book enabled me to start the journey and actually begin to quiet my mind.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The overall way it was presented.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It calmed me and let me learn something about myself

    Story
    "AMAZING!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend this book to anyone and have. I love the way this book is writtern. It is written from his perspective with science backing him. He made me get back into my meditation practice. I felt like he was speaking to me.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Success Through Stillness?

    Loved the part where he talked about places to meditate. His point about using your car or the bathroom has really opened my eyes to the fact that you can meditate anywhere. This has profoundly help me be consistent. Thank you Russell.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend you read the Autobiography of a Yogi as well.

    Story
    "18 chapters on "why meditation is important"..."
    What disappointed you about Success Through Stillness?

    18 chapters on "why meditation is important"...one chapter on "how to meditate."

    I kid you not.

    Advice: Skip everything except the last chapter.
