Indeed he abused his wife emotionally and mentally and was a troubled soul despite what he acheived, like most people with such drive and ambition he had inner demons he never really conquered.

You’ll get far more success out of kettlebells and Indian club workouts and other compound muscle movements.
Like weights but work out for a solid hour targeting multiple muscle groups and once you are fit enough burn through 1000 calories during the session and many more in after burn.
Working out purely focusing on single muscles is great for those who are relatively fit anyway or have a great metabolism, it didn’t work for me and doesn’t work for many others. I paid a personal trainer who was kind enough to educate me in how silly I was being and got me hitting 3+ muslce groups in every movement and always utilising the core.
See mens health – Spartacus workout for a great example of a 41 minute killer routine (though it isn’t the one I use its getting there)

I would suggest Daniel Gilberts audio book “Stumbling on happiness”, it takes great pains to explain our conceptions of happiness and how we can discuss and measure it.
One slight criticism “there is no such thing as a healthy person in a sick body”
Well that isn’t true IMO, Buddhism teaches that all life is suffering and that our mental states don’t have to be conditioned to our bodily state. That means someone wasting away with Cancer can still experience exquisite mental clarity and move past transitory states of pain or anguish or simply just accept more easily what is. Of course the general point is good that we should exercise both our body and our mind.
– oh bum after writing this I see I was beaten to it! Well I’ll throw the stoics into this as well while I’m at it.

Hang on those audio clips are “Pale Blue Dot” put to music ala COSMOS unless I am madly mistaken.

Awww I’d really hoped we’d see this on HE and now we do.
If you want to see Cosmos.
Please do listen to the audio book “pale blue dot”

They avoid the pain of giving up, giving up an addiction is possibly one of the most painful experiences going, it is a constant battle unless you can get some superb NLP hypnotic work done on you but who has a spare 20k lying around to pay for Mckenna or Bandler.

Seems like a bit of an oversimplification of Tony Robbins pain or pleasure. For a start we’ll always do more to avoid pain than gain pleasure, harsh fact but we can use that to leverage us to new heights.

True but that is kind of my point, it might not be for sale but it is of value.
