Hello all beautiful people out there!
Amidst these self-isolation times or should we say “time for self”, I am surprised to find so many new things either from family, social media or from general happenings around the world. In circumstances where the entire nation is adhering to lockdown orders, it is important to keep in contact with everybody around and help wherever and however possible.
Today’s post is a review of a very famous bestseller author. This book still makes it to the list of a must read in many readers wish list.
“The purpose of life is a life of purpose.”
– Robin Sharma
Key highlights of the book:
The book cover-
It has a simple book cover with orange background and the title and author’s name in black. A tagline detailing the title and what the reader should expect in the book is also added beneath it. A picture of a man walking on a path is depicted but the relevance of that is understood once the reader finishes the book.
A middle age attorney, John, is surprised to see his senior and a mentor, Julian, knocking his door in a completely reformed version of himself after recovering from a massive heart attack in a courtroom. Julian then passes on his learning, wisdom and journey of reaching this far with John considering him as his only closest friend.
“Self mastery is the DNA of life mastery.”
The entire conversation between John and Julian is compiled in thirteen chapters in this book wherein a fable is used to remember objects and people to symbolize priorities, habits and importance of different aspects in life. This fable ensures that when an individual follows everything as described in it can truly meet his or her destiny and can truly be satisfied as per Julian.
“Worry drains the mind of much of its power and, sooner or later, it injures the soul.”
- The author had used basic English to attract even non-readers.
- Another positive and good thing about the book is the pair of main characters, a great teacher and an equally good student.
Since it is based on a fictional fable, the book makes it a little unbelievable for me to develop faith. But the practices discussed are true to the core which ultimately solves the purpose of the fable and hence leaves the reader motivated and thinking upon bringing positive changes in day to day life.
Book in a line: One time read with good 7 points to take away!
Best affirmation that I am always going to remember from this book
“I am more than I appear to be, all the world’s strength and power rests inside me.”
