Home: Welcome


Has It Ever Happened to You?


You can’t sleep because tomorrow is an important day in your life. You know you will be sleepless in the morning, and your head will be heavy. You’re restless, looking at the clock that shows 2:11 a.m., and you haven’t closed your eyes yet. You go through different scenarios. Your heart beats hard, you sweat, and then the extra nervousness comes because you can’t sleep. What can you do?


You are about to have an important business event: you will present a key project to the company's management, you have a speech at a conference that can open new business opportunities, important business negotiations await you. You have a career match ahead of you. You are in the final round of an important tournament, and you are gripped by panic and nervousness. Doubts surround you, and you feel insecure. You have no energy. What can you do?


You came home tired after a hard day’s work. Work obligations have drained all your energy and, at home, you have children waiting for you, who are already looking forward to playing and socializing with you, and you are barely alive. You have neither the energy nor the will. What can you do?


Successful Under Pressure Cover

You have a sixth sense that this person is right for you. You would like to spend all of your days with him or her. But you are afraid of rejection; you are afraid to tell them how you feel. What can you do?


Negotiations on an important business deal have failed. You have been rejected. You have lost a loved one. You are without energy and willpower. You feel really bad. Everything is lost. You are surrounded by black, catastrophic thoughts. You are at the bottom. What can you do?


The book Successful Under Pressure: Proven Techniques for Relieving Stress and Increasing Resilience is a guide that can help you with such and similar situations in life. In it, you will find useful techniques that can help you be the best when it is most needed.

Who is this book for?

Life is too short to deal with stress, negative emotions, sadness, anger, fear, anxiety, regret, resentment, or drown in hopelessness without the right strategies and knowledge. These emotions reduce our ability to solve the problems we face as well as weaken our resilience. Living in fear and constant worry weakens the immune system and makes us more susceptible to disease.  Self-treatment with sedatives, energy drinks, stimulants, alcohol, nicotine, drugs, etc., is neither a good nor a sustainable solution. There is a better way, and I believe the book Successful Under Pressure will help you find it.


The book is intended for those who believe that there is more in us than we are willing to admit. I believe we all have tremendous potential, but we need to awaken it. The promise of this book is exactly that. It will help you overcome fear and make the best of yourself—at the times when it is most needed. Note: only if you play your part and grab and use the tips in this book can you expect benefits.

Successful Under Pressure is a practical self-help book written for those who want to improve their psychophysical health and strengthen their energy and ability to enjoy life. It is for anyone looking for tools, techniques, and skills to improve their performance and pick up faster after failures and problems. This is a book that will help you get back on your feet quickly or successfully prepare for an important event. At the same time, it will help you develop and grow as a person.

A letter from the Author

Look around you and pay attention to the energy you see in other people. I notice exhaustion and fatigue. People are out of energy, struggling to survive. They wait for the weekend to recover and then fall back into the routine of everyday stress. However, this does not have to be the case.

What if we could wake up in the morning rested and start the day with a great energy ritual? What if we could tackle daily commitments full of energy and enthusiasm? What if we could pick ourselves up quickly after failures, disappointments, and problems? What if you could properly prepare for the important event ahead of you?

In my new book, Successful Under Pressure, I introduce you to all the key techniques for reducing and managing stress, and increasing optimism, self-confidence, and resilience. You will get tools for high performance. You probably already know some of them as they have been with us for millennia. I’m sure, though, you’ll find a few new ones you haven’t thought about yet.
Best of all, you can perform most of the techniques presented in 90 seconds to 3 minutes. Which means you can use them in real time: when you really need them.
The book is the result of my search for performance tools, which began in 2004 with personal experience. Since then, I have been systematically monitoring research and the latest discoveries in this area. The book has 354 pages and contains 52 best techniques and tools, as well as numerous information and practical examples of use. Successful Under Pressure is a guide to energy management, stress reduction, and building true resilience.
I firmly believe that we are stronger than we think or dare to admit. As one of the first readers wrote, “We carry all the life force within us, we just have to find and activate it.” This book will show you how to do that.
Live the full and fulfilled life you deserve. Use the effective “secrets” of resilience, optimism, confidence, and performance presented in my groundbreaking new book, Successful Under Pressure.
