Zen Golf Quote of the Week
Zen Golf Quote of the Week 7-14-16
A Zen student went for an interview with his master. The student said, "I know this may require a very lengthy and complex answer, but I request guidelines for conducting myself wherever I am, so that my attitude and behavior are always excellent."
The master said, "Actually, the answer is quite brief and simple: In every situation, conduct yourself as if your five-year-old child were watching you."

in ZEN GOLF: Mastering The Mental Game
by Dr. Joe Parent
Thinking about your own or others’ behaviors in terms of habit rather than nature makes life much more workable. This can be particularly useful in working with feelings of helplessness in relation to eating. When you find yourself deep in a half-gallon of ice cream, it’s easy to feel like there’s something deeply wrong with you. But if you recognize that you have a habit of compulsively eating ice cream—that is a behavior you can change. There is hope.

in THE BEST DIET BOOK EVER: The Zen of Losing Weight
by Dr. Joe Parent
Here's one of the latest 5-Star reviews from Amazon:
Last Diet Book You Will Ever Need
Having been on EVERY DIET ever, I weigh in as an expert on seesaw dieting. First thing that resonated with me was the suggestion to approach dieting in a positive (instead of punitive) way. This may sound simple, but for me, it was life-changing. This book does not tell you what to eat, but HOW to change your unhealthy habits bit by bit. In one month, I have lost over five pounds and lots of inches. It may be the last diet book you will ever need.
Please share this with your email list, your Facebook friends,
and any others you connect with who might benefit from it. Thanks!
"Losing 65 pounds gave me the confidence to succeed. I’ve kept the weight off and kept winning tournaments. Dr. Parent is a master, and this book will really help you lose weight, feel more confident, and achieve your goals."
