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.

This would probably be the most beneficial in having an immediate impact on my life.
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.
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.
Allow the thoughts to come and keep repeating the mantras and the thoughts will eventually pass. Compassion is your greatest resource for success.
I really look forward to incorporating meditation into my lifestyle for 20 minutes 2 times per day.
Yes parts of it.
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.
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.
The overall way it was presented.
It calmed me and let me learn something about myself
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.
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.
I recommend you read the Autobiography of a Yogi as well.
18 chapters on "why meditation is important"...one chapter on "how to meditate."
I kid you not.
Advice: Skip everything except the last chapter.
Overall not bad but the the title should be different. Only last chapter relates to the title, the rest is just Russels view on meditation
This was an easy listen. Although a long book, it was easy to listen to the friendly, calm, expressive voice of the author. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for more peace in their life, or those on a spiritual journey. I struggle with PTSD, and before even finishing this book, I began using these techniques, and within the first day, found his words to be true. Understated in the way that the benefits were greater than he expressed, but most definitely true. This will be a book I listen to again after I get more used to meditating.
Thank you, Mr. Simmons. Great job!
I've read many similar books and this one is up there as one of the best and most relatable.
It provides a great overview of the benefits of meditation and addresses some of the common challenges facing a hopeful meditator. The final chapter provides very practical instructions to seal the deal.
Simmons clearly wants readers to try practicing yoga and veganism. I'm not quite convinced on those fronts, but the main topic was meditation and mindfulness and I was persuaded there! The narration is good too if you are wondering.
"Beginners must read"
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.
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.
