‘Who will cry when you die?’ by Robin Sharma (Review)

‘Who will cry when you die?’ by Robin Sharma (Review)

Having read ‘The Monk who sold his Ferrari’ (the review of which can be read here) and ‘Daily Inspiration from the Monk who sold his Ferrari’ (the review of which can be read here), this book is in a similar yet a different ballgame altogether.

‘Who will cry when you die?’ is in a similar genre as the other ones mentioned above, what makes it different is the 101 Lessons that are broken down from the previous books – which are straightforward and to the point.

These 101 Lessons also act as daily reminders to living a better life each day – every lesson needs to be understood, to be implied and to be executed in our day-to-day lives.

In my opinion, this book shouldn’t be read in one go, but rather as lesson to lesson, as and when you apply it to your lives. One thing’s for sure, you’ll be a different person, an upgraded version of your previous self, once you imply these lessons to your life.

Looking for straightforward changes to your life – pick up this one and enjoy the process.

Ikigai – the Japanese secret to a long and happy life (Book Review)

Ikigai – the Japanese secret to a long and happy life (Book Review)

Usually in the midst of reading a book, I’ve already chosen the next one to read and a similar situation occurred with this one, where I’d decided to read this one, books in advance.

Written by Hector García and Francesc Miralles, Ikigai is a brilliant read, based on a Japanese concept to living a long and happy life.

In the most basis terms, Ikigai is about finding something that you love, that also makes you happy, that is also commercially viable and that has a market for it. Well, it’s not all about professionalism, but applied to your personal life and doing something everyday so your day is occupied with things you like to do.

However, to understand our life, especially from the work point of view, Ikigai is an excellent concept to apply and learn the answers we were looking for.

When you’re happy, when you love what you’re doing, you’re able to do it on a daily basis and for an endless amount of time – the more happy you are, the more fulfilled you feel, and the longer you’re able to live with no boredom/ emptiness / hollow feelings to think about. The concept of retirement doesn’t exist in Ikigai, because if you aren’t doing anything, then what are you doing with your life.

Well, if you’re looking for answers, especially from a different perspective than what is seen or taught in the West, then you should definitely pick this one up and understand life from a different angle to what you’re originally living.

The book is a definite gamechanger, if you want it to be. #RTHReviews

Daily Inspiration from the Monk who sold his Ferrari by Robin Sharma (Review)

Daily Inspiration from the Monk who sold his Ferrari by Robin Sharma (Review)

Book In Focus : Daily Inspiration from the Monk who sold his Ferrari

Author : Robin Sharma

Irrespective of having read ‘The Monk who sold his Ferrari’ or not, this book is a deep dive into the important lessons shared in that one – divided into tiny bits of inspirational material, one per day, in its entirety covering 365 days of the year.

This is one of those picks which aren’t supposed to be read altogether, but, one per day, depending on what date it is.

Why should you read the current day’s bit and not the ones before or after? Well, you should focus on the day you’re living, be in the present and not focus on the past or the future.

Coming back to the book, reading it everyday and also, at the same time, sharing it with others was a blessing in disguise, because the daily bits focused on such important elements of life – that it made it that much more valuable having focused on one bit – learning it, understanding it, implementing it – and then, focusing on the next bit on the next day.

That is how I’d summarize this book, it’s a good read, one that goes on for an entire year, and can also be repeated every other year too – because why not, those lessons have importance in our lives on a day-to-day.

This is also a perfect time to pick up this book, with 1st Jan coming along and you could then read it exactly for a year, start to end.

The Latte Factor by David Bach (Review)

The Latte Factor by David Bach (Review)

Are you not able to afford something that you want or need? Are you also trapped with the common myths of money? Would you like to grow your money without much hassles?

Then, this is the book for you.

The Latte Factor by David Bach is, in my opinion, a book covering the basics of financial management, which ultimately becomes relatable for the reader because you’re able to connect with the story, and feel that a similar situation occurred with you too and it makes sense to what the author has written.

Books like ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’ are a more refined version on a similar topic, more detailed and advanced, which is why I mentioned that The Latte Factor covers the basics.

Much of the contents of the book wasn’t completely new if you have read similar books or if you follow people like Robert Kiyosaki, Tony Robbins or Grant Cardone.

Nonetheless, the book doesn’t take much time and it’s always better to read through such a book – whether you’ve read something similar or not – you get to understand from a different perspective and are able to strengthen your base.

This is a good, short read – pick it up and you’ll come out a bit more refined in the financial world.

Shoe Dog by Phil Knight (Review)

Shoe Dog by Phil Knight (Review)

Phil Knight is not just one of the best entrepreneurs out there, but a brilliant storyteller too.

He takes you on a journey, his journey, full of ups and downs, into making what Nike is today.

His storytelling is so apt and vivid, that you feel you’re on this journey with him. You’re able to imagine when he paints the picture, you want to know what his next step is going to be, how is he going to solve the next problem. You’re just holding onto the book and want to read page after page.

Every great journey starts with a Crazy Idea, and Phil Knight shares everything, right from the inception to the making to its problems and it’s growth. Nike is a brand everyone is fascinated with, everyone wants to own a piece of it, however, very few people know the story behind it and how interesting it is.

This is a business book which every current and future entrepreneur should read, it paints you the real picture of entrepreneurship, what it takes to build a business, how persistent you need to be, how calm you need to be during the gravest of problems, and how important a team around you is.

Everyone sees a brand what they are today, everyone sees what Nike is today, but we hardly realize the years it took to be what it is, the hardships the company faced, the innovations it did, some successful and some not, the learnings you get from that – this is a picture of real entrepreneurship.

Phil Knight, you’re a genius.

The Secret by Rhonda Bryne (Review)

The Secret by Rhonda Bryne (Review)

• What Books Taught Us #3 •

Book In Focus : The Secret
Author : Rhonda Bryne

The Secret is an easy-to-read book on the Law of Attraction, what is it, how do you use it, what kind of affect does it have on your life, happiness, success, work, relationships and more, with real-life examples.

You could try to use it in the tiniest of things and believe it for yourself and then use it to achieve what you want to.

If the book had to be summed up in a few words, especially to a non-believer, it should be done in this way…

According to science and statistics, a human being has approximately 50,000 to 80,000 thoughts in a day, imagine that!

Now what do you think during this time has an impact on your actions, on what you speak, on how you react.

Positive Thoughts – Positive Actions – Positive Results, it’s as simple as that.

Of course, this is just a one-liner summary of the entire book, and there’s a lot more to uncover when you read the book, but this book is an eye-opener and should be in your books to read in your lifetime.
