As I read the title of the book a whirlwind of fantasies suddenly formed inside my mind; I was distracted imagining my kind of life. Good thing I learned meditation and was able to get my focus back to reading the book.
I finished the book within 12 hours with pauses in between, so roughly 5 hours. yup that’s how it is easy to read. It’s like reading 52 blog posts in one sitting. BUT, I will not recommend you to do the same. Instead, I ask you to read and devour each chapter, learn from it and practice the teachings in this book. Besides this is a self-help book, a no magic formula for overnight changes (I wish!). As mentioned in the book description, the book is a week-by-week guide – 52 chapters for 52 weeks to prepare you and as the process will lead you to your so-called “ideal life”. Basically it’s a one year program to follow.
Okay, I hear you! I have to reread this book and will contemplate the teachings in every chapter, and do whatever suggested in this book. Actually, I read and heard about most of the tips written in this book through advises from friends and families and self-help books. And this book is a compilation of those guides plus additional tips and personal anecdotes from the author. It’s very practical, basic and easy to follow… but I guess hard to implement that’s why we are stuck on where we are right now.
There are questions raised in every end of the chapter making this book interactive. And the quotations from different personalities are remarkable. But like any other self-help book, the change will always start with a big decision and discipline within you to change the life you want to have.
As I start this year, part of the decision that I will make is to write a weekly blog post using this book as my guide. Hopefully, by next year I am living the life I am dreaming of.
