The 12 steps to developing unstoppable mental toughness in young athletes and high-performance sportspeople. In this audiobook, I take a broad look at what mental toughness means. Because I have lived with adversity for most of my life, I’m often asked: ´´How do you deal with this?´´ This book is my response to that question. Mental toughness is the key to success. I offer my definition of the concept based on my life experiences inside and outside of basketball, and the influences and lessons from my parents, coaches, teachers, teammates, friends, mentors, and colleagues over the years. I have had great fortune to witness real mental toughness in some amazing people I have met and situations I have been in. So, I relate examples and lessons of hard-won toughness I have seen up close and that have had a positive and permanent impact on me. I would like to offer you these stories from my life so you can look further into your own stories. Look into your past, pay attention to your present, and a create bright future. Though my life experiences, I have discovered that all successful people share one trait - psychological resistance. The point is, I fail all the time, but it doesn’t stop me from taking the next challenge. That mindset is critical for me in my career. And it will be critical for you too. You have to be willing to live with what you do, with the life you create for yourself, whatever the result. So never stop trying. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jules Hall-Weakley.

This volumes examines the basic elements of living systems and makes the argument that forms of life may be more common in our solar system than many assume. It also considers exotic forms of life that would not have to rely on these basic elements. Energy, chemistry, solvents, and habitats - the basic elements of living systems - define the opportunities and limitations for life on other worlds. This class-tested text examines each of these parameters in crucial depth and makes the argument that life forms we would recognize may be more common in our solar system than many assume. It also considers, however, exotic forms of life that would not have to rely on carbon as basic chemical element, solar energy as a main energy source, or water as primary solvent. Finally the question of detecting bio- and geosignature of such life forms is discussed, ranging from Earth environments to deep space. While speculative considerations in this emerging field of science cannot be avoided, the authors have tried to present their study with the breadth and seriousness that a scientific approach to this issue requires. They seek an operational definition of life and investigate the realm of possibilities that nature offers to realize this very special state of matter and avoid scientific jargon wherever possible to make this intrinsically interdisciplinary subject understandable to a broad range of readers. The second edition thoroughly updates this text in view of the rapid progress in the field and a substantial amount of new material has been added, in particular sections and chapters on adaptation to extreme environments, the future and fate of living systems, life detection concepts based on the thorough analysis of the Viking missions and the issue around the meteorite ALH 84001, and - last but not least - recommendations for the optimization of future space exploration missions. From the reviews of the first edition: ´´[...] I know of no other book that reassesses the fundamentals of astrobiology in such way. This book is a tacit lesson in open-mindedness tempered with thorough scientific analysis. This is a very important book for all professional astrobiologists.´´ A Ellery, International Journal of Astrobiology, 6 (2007) 182-183
