MANSFIELD, Conn., July 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Life is unfair, the economy is out of control and disaster can strike at any time. However true these statements might be, your ability to bounce back from your circumstances depends on your own control over yourself. In his refreshing new self-help book, "Controlling Your Future: Six Steps To A Better Life" (published by AuthorHouse), Richard Norgaard shows readers how to achieve total fitness -- mind, body and finances -- through self-discipline and self-control.
"Controlling Your Future: Six Steps To A Better Life" doesn't dance around the facts: the only one who can change your life is you. Norgaard offers six simple steps on how to uncover what is missing in your life and how to turn your lives around.
"The current consensus is that the coming generations won't live longer or better or healthier, because we have failed to recognize that life is not easy or comfortable," writes Norgaard. "It remains difficult, as it has been for eons. The problem lies in our brains, not so much our bodies. Our existence today requires ever more discipline, even as we are showing less and less discipline. The trouble is that discipline is not inherited, it is learned. The undisciplined mind does not respond well to the need for discipline."
"Controlling Your Future: Six Steps To A Better Life" presents the roadmap to disciplining the mind. There are six steps to Norgaard's plan:
-- Get control over your body by beginning to exercise -- Get the proper amounts of nutrients to fuel your body -- Improve your brain's performance through continuous learning -- Learn to make the best of the challenges in your professional life -- Develop financial responsibility -- Learn how to control distractions
Using a uniquely historical approach to current issues of obesity, health and consumer culture, "Controlling Your Future: Six Steps To A Better Life" presents a plan for how to work towards a brighter future. Norgaard asks readers not to heed the siren call of their life's distractions, and focus instead on disciplining the mind by organizing time wisely in order to regain control of their lives.
