LOS ANGELES, Aug. 31, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The newly released How to Drink from the Fountain of Youth is actually two motivational books in one. “My proven, practical advice is meant to inspire anyone who wants to drink from the Fountain of Youth, plus it’s a journal for note-taking and for memorializing your dreams, actions and small victories in life,” says author Rich Tola, who, by the way, is 57 yet claims to have “stopped getting older at age 30.”
“Looking, feeling and being 20 years younger than your actual age is all about empowering and replenishing your aura on a daily basis, keeping it strong and vibrant for the long haul,” he says. Which is age 108, if you ask the Hollywood filmmaker and modern-day yoga master (who also worked on Wall Street).
How to Drink from the Fountain of Youth provides step-by-step instructions on living better and stronger, and for being your best and healthiest self. And if readers follow Tola’s 30 Stepsto Everlasting Youth, “you’ll never be out-of-shape and overweight; I guarantee it.” Strong words to stand by, but Tola certainly does.
The book is ideal for anyone looking to lose weight, feel more energized, be more confident, define their personal goals and aspirations, plus grow mentally as well as improve their entire outlook on life. It’s also for aspiring Millennials still searching for their calling, and for baby boomers who finally have the money but not the motivation to pursue their passion.
Tola’s book is fun, fast-paced and colloquial, not to mention laced with insightful anecdotes garnered from a half-century of experiences. With Steps like Be Vain, Love the Scale, Embrace Failure and Self-Correct, the author is quite the sage who respects the powers of karma. Because, as Tola believes, “Everything in life is circular, so our choices, both good and bad, definitely come back to us in the future.”
Tola also claims he was fortunate to have embraced fitness at a very young age, and lists his childhood heroes as nutrition guru, Jack LaLanne, and 7-time Mr. Olympia, Arnold Schwarzenegger. He calls them the Best of the Best, and they’re listed with 45 other “preeminent trailblazers and artists” right before the Glossary. Yes, there’s a Glossary with 50 words found throughout the book. Because, as Tola says, “…it always serves you well to empower your mind with a good vocabulary.”
Rich Tola is also known for his heartfelt and witty memoir, Simply Between Millions: From Wall Street to Hollywood, and films such as Boulevard Zen and Skateboard Bandits. With success in writing, fitness and filmmaking, Tola has made it his personal goal to help everyone live the same healthy life while experiencing the same guaranteed results to being – and staying – youthful in a way that works.
First and foremost, when it comes to drinking from the mythical Fountain of Youth, you gotta Keep it Moving whenever humanly possible. And if you need a little inspiration in that department, take heed from my favorite animal, baby Dolphins in today’s Tola Talks #154.
Have an awesome day everyone, and get your workout in! Peace – R
Are you living in FUNK and FEAR during this COVID pandemic? Take my advice and be fearless in Tola Talks #153, plus some Trump vs Biden preliminary election talk including what “darkness” is Joe Biden talking about?
Plus, some cinema talk about the romantic comedy, “Knight and Day” with Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz (love that movie!). Check-it out in under 10 minutes…and get your workout in!
“Inspirational and Doable!!!! Rich Tola’s chapter by chapter self help advice is an inspirational and motivational book that should be read by anyone who wants to be their best self and live their best life (seems like a read that Oprah and Deepak Chopra would like)!
What I love about this quick read is that it equates youthfulness with a persons mind, body, spirit and energy. The author defines aura and emphasizes the importance of keeping it vibrant! He also explains how passion and kindness are both energies that others can feel.
He’s had several successful careers and is able to write from experience. He gives very practical and wise advice that he has gathered from everywhere from his father to the ancient Greeks, to hypnotherapy, to Winston Churchill to his Ivy League education.
With a friendly, inclusive and encouraging tone in his writing, Tola is sharing an approach to life that has allowed him to feel youthful, successful and happy! At age 57, he feels more than 2 decades younger than his actual age and even in reading him without meeting him, his youthful energy feels contagious! He is living proof that the 30 steps he speaks of are 30 disciplines that get positive results.
I completely agree with what Tola has written and I feel more inspired each day since reading it!
Thanks so much Andrea, and hey everyone, take heed from someone who gets it…Everlasting Youth is DOABLE, no doubt!
Have an awesome day…and get your workout in! Peace – R
There are two sides to every coin, no doubt, just like there’s good and bad in everything, including Guns and Roses. That’s right, they both can be beautiful and powerful as well as draw blood, and yes, we’re also talking about Slash and the legendary rock band, Guns N’ Roses (still reading his autobiography).
