Assertive Humility: Emerging from the Ego Trap
Stuart Taylor was living the life of his dreams. He had a highly challenging job at the sharp end of town, with a pay packet and benefits to match; a loving family who understood the need for travel and were grateful for what time they did have with him. Then he got sick. Very sick. Brain cancer sick. As it turns out, Stuart was one of the fortunate ones. He came out the other side after a protracted fight with his disease. And he emerged a different person - a better person - more compassionate, less self-centred, more grateful and much more conscious. Quite simply, he became a much happier person. Later Stuart started to wonder what would have happened if he hadn't got cancer. Would he have maintained the pace? Would he ever have found the level of happiness he has today? Were there others out there living fast-paced corporate lives who could also be happier and better people if they were more conscious of their lives? So Stuart decided to explore the change in himself and how others might benefit from what he'd learnt. This is not a cancer survival story, although it is in part. Nor is it a critique of the corporate lifestyle, though it is that too, in part. Mostly this book is a wake up call - an opportunity to reflect on where you are now, where you're going and whether you are happy with that trajectory. It raises some of the same questions Stuart faced - without the trauma - and provides a framework for exploring the journey ahead.
