Some people seem to have superpowers

They never anger, they stay calm in the most stressful situation. Mindfulness rules the day, and their happy life is a reflection of their strong mind. Healthy habits seem to be effortlessly part of their daily life.

They seem to be at peace regardless of the outcome.

It looks like the world abides by their desire and that life unfolds before them with uninterrupted streaks of good news and golden opportunities.

When these people will reflect on their life they will have no regrets and will leave this world being serene and unafraid.

Such superpowers are available to everyone

Such superpowers are within your reach, because, even if you doubt it, you already have in you the seeds of a wonderful being able to create a life worth living for yourself.

Your life is your garden and this book is a guide for the beginner gardener you are. It will help you grow it in a beautiful garden you will contemplate in peace.

But this garden will need to be tended and to many people, tending a garden sounds like hard work.

Many will decline.

The path to better living may seem to be hard work, at first. But its reward is of inestimable value: having had a life worth living has no equal.

Make no mistake,

This is the only garden you will ever grow!

Unlike video games, life has no reset button.

Too many people never plant their seed. Their garden remains desolated and their life is empty like a barren land, their seeds left to rot or lost to the random elements.

They never tried to grow, afraid of the effort. They remained in the comfort of their narrative, justifying their inaction with unbeatable excuses.

When these people will reflect on their life, they will realize they never reached the heights they aspired to, and will look back with regrets.

Such is the fate of those who never plant the seed.

When facing their mortality, many people say they wish they allowed themselves to be happy.Among their grievances, they often wish they had guidance or inspiration. They sometimes speak bitterly and feel they were robbed of their chance, yet they simply never opened up to the possibilities.

You certainly observed it among people close to you. You can only passively witness their lives, void of joy and achievements, leaving you torn inside with sadness.

Do not let that happen to you.

This book will change the way you think about thinking: it had an immediate, positive effect on my life. I now have a better understanding of my brain and how it works. This understanding has allowed me to live a happier and more fulfilling life. I highly recommend this book.

User Review - Flag as inappropriate

A short, simple, and important compendium of our life's struggles - the pursuit of happiness, the life long chase of money, of feeling unfulfilled, of feeling lost - that explains kindly, logically, and thoughtfully why we are stuck in our ruts and self-damaging behavioral patterns, and how we can recognize and make positive changes.
Coming from humble origins, the author does not assume authority and speaks to you as a friend, as someone who has been there and understands, combining experience and research to deliver you the answers you need in a thoughtful manner.
I don't usually read self-help books, but this isn't a self-help book. It's a guidance book to shed light and encourage you to take the right steps toward the direction you want to go.
Highly recommend as a gift to students, friends, and loved ones.
