    Bessel Van der Kolk, MD, is the author of The Body Keeps the Score. In this book, Bessel examines the ways that trauma can affect people and how they can recover from past traumatic events. When a person experiences trauma, it will change the wiring in their brain, and this will cause a change in the way that person views their life and everyday situations. Trauma has a negative effect on both the body and mind in a way that will prevent a person affected by trauma from enjoying the present moment.

    In the first chapter, Jeff Olson introduces his readers to the idea that every single person on this planet has the potential to turn either into a poor, unsuccessful beach bum or into a successful entrepreneur with a huge balance in his bank account. He tells his own story - about how he went from failure to success to another failure, how he slowly learned that failure and success both happen for the same reason, and that this one single reason can work either for or against you, depending on how you use it.

    The gut is very important because it is the control panel for a person's overall state of health. When a person is healthy their intestinal lining works the same way as a filter does. A healthy gut has the ability to keep out bad toxins and keep in good elements. When the gut is overloaded with too many bad toxins the intestinal walls will begin to break down as a result.
