The Secret Letters of the Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin S. Sharma
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is my second book on Robin Sharma. The first one is "Who will cry when you die" this book did not disappoint me. Jonathan Landry (main character) who has the difficulty in spending time with his family and his wife lives separately. In this circumstances his cousin "The monk who sold is Ferrari" Julian asks Jonathan to collect nine mystical artefacts which he had given to his friends around the World for safe keeping. On completing the task Jonathan understands the significance of his life and the mistakes he made and also the answers.
I like to quote some from this book:
1. You see, building my net worth had become less interesting to me than discovering myself worth.
2. Life itself is a journey after all, and what matters most is not what you are getting but who your are becoming.
3. The saddest thing is that this is often all we understand about ourselves, that so often we live our neighbour's life, instead of our own.
4. Doesn't matter where you are going, just who you are becoming.
5. The way we do small things determines the way that we do everything. If we execute our minor tasks well, we will also excel at our larger efforts. Mastery then becomes our way of being. But more than this each tiny effort builds on the next, so that brick by brick, magnificent things can be created great confidence grows and uncommon dreams are realized. the truly wise recognize that small daily improvements always lead to exceptional results over time.
6. We grow fearless by doing those things we fear.
7. Bravery isn't really something you feel. It's something you show.
8. What holds us back in life is the invisible architecture of fear. It keeps us in our comfort zones, which are, in truth the least safe places in which we live.
9. Every time we step into the discomfort of growth and progress, we become more free,. The more fears we walk through, the more power we reclaim. In this way, we grow both fearless and powerful, and thus are able to live the lives of our dreams.
