Shaolin: How to Win Without Conflict
THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER
Discover how to win in any situation using the ancient wisdom of the Shaolin monks.
The Shaolin monks in China are legendary for their mastery of kung fu, but the secret to their success – their ability to rise to any challenge, handle stress and overcome conflict – lies not in their physical strength but in their powerful mindset.
Captivated by the legend of the Shaolin monks, Bernhard Moestl travelled to China to live among them. What he learned there surprised him – the teachings of Shaolin are not about fighting. The Shaolin monks understand that through their minds they have control over themselves and their surroundings, and that it is the mind alone that allows them to succeed.
In this book, Bernhard has distilled the monks’ incredible way of thinking into 13 life principles, including resoluteness, self-knowledge and community. By following this ancient path, you will discover the monks’ greatest lesson: the ultimate success is learning to fight so well that you do not need to fight at all.
You do not need to be a monk or live in a monastery to apply these principles to your life. Bernhard provides modern examples, exercises and inspiring quotes to ease you on your journey to discovering your innermost self, your greatest potential and much, much more.
