Product Description:

Basic Approach

Winning is a habit we need to cultivate by manoeuvring the thoughts responsible for our habits. Emphasizing particularly on sports, where competition is unavoidable, Winning Habits offers techniques and solutions from Indian and Western psychology, and yogic practices to deal with negative thoughts which create hindrances in the path to victory.Disciplining the thought processes through concentration-exercises like Bindu Trataka and Jyoti Trataka; strengthening the correct responses from memory, and a positive anticipation of the future through visualization; and yogic exercises like Pranayama for developing concentration and attention focus, Shavasana and Nyasa for relaxation and creation of energy reserves are some of the recommended remedies.


This book is divided into three parts, each dealing with a separate area of focus:

  • Basic concepts and their practical applications for excellence and achievement in sports

  • Techniques and exercises such as Bindu Trataka, Jyoti Trataka, Pranayama, Nyasa, Soham Mantra, Shavasana and visualization

  • The actual application of these techniques in sports such as tennis, badminton, table-tennis, squash, judo, wrestling, boxing, shooting, archery, billiards, snooker, golf, football, hockey, basketball, cricket, and volleyball

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
