I recently reviewed a book for my college course called “The Monk who sold his Ferrari”. The book is a fable about fulfilling your dreams and reaching your destiny. To be honest, I found the way the story was written a little cheesy but that aside there are some really good concepts and habits for anyone interested in incorporating routines and habits that can transform their lives, help them achieve their goals and being truly happy.
The author Robin Sharma is a leadership expert and while the concepts he talks about are not new, he condensed them into a short easy to read book. Just don’t try and implement them all, pick a couple of habits that will have the most impact on your life and concentrate on those.
Below are just a few quotes from the book which resonated with me and have helped with my attitude towards my situation (so far!):
- “We can’t control events but we can control our attitude towards these events”
- “No matter what happens in life you alone have the capacity to choose your response to it”
- “From struggle comes strength”
