The Path of No Resistance: Why Overcoming is Simpler than You Think
A Fresh Take on the Inborn Characteristic of Resilience
Most people are convinced that the key to rising above a perceived problem is to think about it, analyze all angles, and try real hard to solve it. But the fact is: Problems in the world are mounting. War, famine, and strife exist at alarming rates. Not to mention that the level of respect within our families and communities seems to be fraying.
Simply put, our behavior is not up to par these days; it’s spiraling downward. Why? We’re not connecting the dots. In the arenas of psychology, teaching, coaching, and parenting, we’re using behavioral strategies to boost inner levels of clarity and consciousness—to no avail.
So, if focusing on behavior isn’t working, what will?
The Path of No Resistance provides a brand-new look at how human beings really overcome adversity. Along the way, Garret Kramer reveals the astonishing truth about what creates our troubles in the first place. And what we already know, deep down, that allows us to prosper in spite of any circumstance.
Offering an array of examples, Kramer demonstrates that resilience and happiness are—in principle—innate to everyone. He insists that calculated self-help methods are not the answer, and explains why insight, and not intellect, is what fuels our ability to excel and give back to others.
This book will change the way you approach any predicament in your life. It shows you why today’s experts are missing the mark, and just how simple it is to turn mountains into molehills—and thrive.

For years, athletes, coaches, parents, and organizations have searched for the secrets to optimum mental performance. However, in spite of a myriad tools and techniques, success and contentment continue to be as elusive as ever. Until now.
Garret Kramer’s Stillpower: Excellence with Ease in Sports and Life offers a revolutionary explanation for this predicament and provides a basic, yet dynamic, approach for the future.

Stillpower highlights the misalignment between the experiences of all performers and the strategies of the coaches, psychologists, and experts who are hoping to help them.
Stillpower uses real-life examples to explore such questions as: What is “the zone,” and what must we do (or not do) to get there? Why do we need to understand the difference between insight and intellect? Is goal setting really useful? Why doesn’t willpower work? And why do the best mentors focus on a person’s state of mind and not behavior?
Virtually all of us—athletes and nonathletes alike—are looking outside of ourselves, trying to unlock the keys to happiness, freedom, and excellence with ease. In Stillpower, Garret Kramer encourages us to look within to finally find the answers.
