5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute must read book
By Mun Ira on 10 September 2020
Just amazing. I’ve read it cover to cover in less than two weeks. Could not put it down.
It delivers the reader the ability to see, feel and offer positivity, happiness, to value and actively practice gratitude, serve, love, live in peace of mind, have purpose and rise.....I can go on and on.

Shipped to a dear friend living far away from me and some more yet to be gifted. A valuable gift.

I followed Jay Shetty on Facebook for months, let’s face it, he’s not only super hot but I love the wise words of wisdom on relationships and life he comes out with. I never normally read books, I’m a busy working single mum of four. Probably not the most educated either, but I thought I’d give it and shot anway and I told myself I will just do one page a day. I’m absolutely loving reading this book. It’s very in-depth, easy to understand and Nice to read so far. It feels wonderful to take a short moment out of my busy life to spend it on reading on how to be a better version of me, and hopefully by this, create a better life for myself. Also, working on ‘’me’ gets my attention off my slightly disastrous relationships status. “They say” you have to find happiness in yourself first and then things will fall into place naturally so hopefully this is the beginning of my journey. I’m only 10 pages in but definitely loving it so far.
Also the book is big and is excellent quality!! What a bargain. Thank you Jay for your wise words of wisdom. Wish me luck ! 🍀 Eva

5.0 out of 5 stars A great enabler to help build a mindset and thinking for conscious, purposeful living
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 September 2020
2020 has been a tough year for most people. There has been lots of chaos and challenges which have made having calm, balance and peace quite difficult. In many cases, this has been particularly difficult because of our ways of thinking. There has been lots of fear and negativity and there have been opportunities for us to better connect with our intention and purpose and find greater meaning in life.

Jay provides great frameworks which combine ancient wisdom with the practicalities of living in the modern world. Jay was a Monk for 3 years and he is able to bring to life stories which show how he developed his thinking and how you don't have to be a monk to think like a monk.

Jay has had phenomenal success and it is clear that his way of thinking, daily routines, practices and habits have helped shape this success. He uses lots of anecdotes of his journey and then combines this with references to ancient texts to highlight concepts and practices.

What I love is how humble Jay in his writing, he applies thinking like a Monk through his writing. The book does not preach, it just lays out several different concepts and puts a "Try this" frame around it. The combination of anecdotes, ancient text references, exercises and diagrams really help to bring out the concepts but most importantly provide a practical framework to use.

Jay is a powerful storyteller and he uses the power of story nicely in the book. Just like any other self-development book, it does have concepts that you would have seen in other books. However, lots of people read lots of self-development books and know these concepts at an intellectual level but don't necessarily do anything with this. Lots of people know about Morning Rituals and Gratitude but they still find it difficult to apply these on a daily basis.

This book provides some simple but really powerful ways to change your thinking which will help you train your mind for peace and purpose every day. I liked the meditation examples and also the Vedic Personality Test in the Appendix. Again this is provided with a frame to explore and try it out as opposed to being the exact thing you need to do and use.

If you want to have more conscious, purposeful living then I highly recommend this book. Remember though, reading the book itself will not change your thinking, it will be practical aspects of reflecting and trying out the various concepts within which will support you with your personal growth.
