The Saint, The Surfer and the CEO | review


Last week I finished reading Robin Sharma’s book The Saint, the Surfer and the CEO.

It is a self-help book so to say, but even if you think that you do not need that help, you might feel a bit different after reading it.

The story is about a man, Jack, who got in the car accident and after waking up in a hospital, he was introduced with a co-patient. That patient told the stories of his life, his regrets, he tought Jack a bit about life and went to sleep. In the morning am co-patient left this world.

I might think that even without reading you might predict who was that man to Jack.

And now Jack’s path to self-knowledge has just began. The co-patient planned three meetings with three life teachers: with The Saint, the surfer and the CEO. Each of them were destined to teach Jack how to answer himself three most important questions in life: whether he lived wisely, loved well and served greatly. In each meeting Jack got lots of advices how to start living a life that would matter to himself and others.

Myself, some time ago I was very skeptical about all those self-help books but more I read some psychological and motivational books I start to understant that it is quite a good way to feel uplifted and keep your motivation level high. This particular book, teaches us to think more about the things that matter – our feelings, our percep
tions of what should be taken into our consideration. It teaches us to be truthful with ourselves.

After reading this, I really found the quotes, questions to write down in my notebook. To remember, to see everyday and keep in mind: we should be more. And… Don’t be affraid.

#ajajaj #blogai #valgauvienaspringstuviena Dar knygų! Gavau šiandien dvi: Alain de Botton 'how Proust can change your life' (jo kalbos yra kažkas tokio, įžvalgos apie gyvenimą, santykius, tikėjimą labai taiklios ir kartu šmaikščios, todėl nė nebuvo klausimų, ar reikia užsisakyti), Brené Brown 'Dearing greatly' - vabank tokia, ieškant knygų, radau gerų atsiliepimų, tai ir sužaidė ir dar laukiu Alice Walker 'The color purple' apie 30s juodaodžių moterų situaciją Amerikoje. Taigi, puikus penktadienis!

Kurią nors esate skaitę? Gal dar kokių pasiūlymų turite?
