Take Me To Your Leader

BOOK OF THE WEEK

Jail House Strong

The Successful Mindset Manual

By Josh Bryant & Adam benShea

This is a short (35 pages) guide to mental training that I read to help me with my powerlifting. At a certain point, lifting heavy weights moves from  physical strength to mental strength. As Henry Ford said, “If you think you can or if you think you can’t, either way you are going to be right.” That is so true when it comes to lifting heavy weights.

However, even if you aren’t a powerlifter (you probably aren’t), I believe a strong mindset can assist you with anything you want to accomplish.

CAUTION: Please note that I am only suggesting “Jail House Strong – The Successful Mindset Manual” and not “Jail House Strong” by the same authors

Bryant and benShea, share the blue print, explained in layman’s terms, for taking your mental game to the next level. The Successful Mindset is for the competitive athlete, the entrepreneur, or anyone that strives to get better and be the best. (Source: Amazon)

MOVIE OF THE WEEK

I don’t know how good this movie is, but I have watched it twice now over the years. I think it is worth watching just to see how severe Christopher Lambert can be.

Beowulf (1999)

ART OF THE WEEK

Cup For The Photographer

I saw this being advertised and thought it was really cool.

  EXTRAORDINARY PERSON  OF THE WEEK

Dick Clark

Dick Clark in 1990

Richard Wagstaff Clark (November 30, 1929 – April 18, 2012) was an American radio and television personality, television producer and film actor, as well as a cultural icon who remains best known for hosting American Bandstand from 1956 to 1989. He also hosted Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, which transmitted Times Square’s New Year’s Eve celebrations.

As host of American Bandstand, Clark introduced rock & roll to many Americans. The show gave many new music artists their first exposure to national audiences, including Iggy Pop, Ike & Tina Turner, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, Stevie Wonder, Prince, Talking Heads, Simon & Garfunkel and Madonna.

Episodes he hosted were among the first in which blacks and whites performed on the same stage, and likewise among the first in which the live studio audience sat without racial segregation. Singer Paul Anka claimed that Bandstand was responsible for creating a “youth culture”. Due to his perennially youthful appearance and his largely teenaged audience of American Bandstand, Clark was often referred to as “America’s oldest teenager” or “the world’s oldest teenager”.
