Continua numa fase da minha vida em que cada vez mais gosto de livros que me ajudam a descobrir o meu verdadeiro eu. Para quem gosta deste tipo de leitura, recomendação feita.

This book is about determining what really matters in life- not money, not material posessions, but the real stuff of life. The main character meets with three inspirational coaches who each offer a slightly different perspective and different advice on living an extraordinary life.

Everyone should have this book

I really enjoyed reading this book. Sharma is definitely not among my fav self-help writes, yet this book left a great impression on me. There is just one thing I really don't like about his books..they all look alike. Oh well, at least I got few good advices form this one :)

This book was referred to me by my co-worker Rich. I totally enjoyed this book and hated to see it end. I liked it so much that I gave it to my CEO for his birthday.

كالعادة يبهرنا روبن شارما بإستخدام الأسلوب القصصي الرائع بدلا من الأسلوب المقالي السخيف لإيصال فكرة معينة، نادرا ما يستخدم كتابنا العرب الأسلوب القصصي، صادفت هذا الأسلوب و كان بشكل ناجح في كتاب واحد و هو "قصة الإيمان بين الفلسفة و العلم و القرآن" للشيخ نديم الجسر.
كتاب رائع قيمتة ب نجوم بلا خلاف.
أعرف أن كثير من الكتب لا يصلح معها هذا الأسلوب و لكن الكثير من العلوم يصلح معها الأسلوب القصصي و بخاصة التنمية البشرية.
الكتاب لم يختلف عن الأسلوب التقليدي لروبن شارما في أن يرشد أحد من أسرهم نظام العمل و

"Karşılaştığın birisine gerçek bir gülümseme sunmak, o kişiye verebileceğin en güzel armağandır. Bir tanıdığına bir çiçek ve güzel sözler yazılı bir sevgi notu verebilirsin. Yeni pişirdiğin bir keki, komşunla paylaşabilirsin. Birini ise açık yürekle ve tüm dikkatinle dinlemeği de önemli bir armağan olarak sayabilirsin..."

Sharma is a very educated man that can compile a good amount of knowledge in fun and easy to read book. And if you read enough of this kind of stuff you can easily see the inspiration behind this book - Napoleon Hill, Eckhart Tolle, Stephen Covey, Brian Tracy and a few more that I dont really know their full works.
At the moment I'm struggling with the balance of being fully present and accepting everything the way it is, accepting that the Universe is a kind place and that everything that happen

The book is interesting and is easy to follow. The advice given by the saint, the surfer, and the CEO are simple yet profound. However, the dialogues appear to be staged with John asking a question, and summarizing the answer. Knowing oneself could be the greatest gift one could hope for.

For me this is the best book from Robin Sharma. When I read it first, I liked it. But as I grow and collect more life experience, I am starting to understand it.
While reading it , I highlighted more than 80 quotes. I will share with you just those, where I needed really long time to understand them fully (at least I hope I understand them now :-)) and I consider them now really powerful.

“To have more of what you desire in your life, you must first become more of who you really are. To become a s

After reading the first two sections of the book I took a bit of a hiatus, as I found it had been done better in other books to my mind, and I felt a little lack lustre about going on. But, I'm glad I did, because the third part of the book, ie. The CEO or The CLO, for those in the know, was done reasonably well and did feel motivating and uplifting to some extent. Quite simply written which is great for reaching a broad audience, but at times also frustrating as it also lacked depth in what wer ...more

كتاب ممتع وجميل مليئ بالعبر. كل صفحة وكل سطر في الكتاب ذا مغزى ومعنى. وجدت نفسي بأغلب الأسطر وكان الكتاب وجد لأجلي. قضايا الكتاب تمس كل شخص من قريب أو من بعيد. تفصيل الكتاب مرتبط بثلاث عناصر أساسية القلب والعقل والروح. أحببت الكتاب كثيرا واسرني الكاتب بأسلوبه الشيق في العرض. جعلني اعيد حسابات كثيرة في حياتي وأسعى للأفضل لي ولغيري.

أسالة من الكتاب جعلتني افكر كثيرا ....

Every time I have to write a review for a book it is a mind-twisting time for me. I am reader, I learner and not much of a writer. I will be succinct. If you have already read a lot of books on how to better your self you will find a lot of information in this book to be on a similar line. In my opinion it brings more clarity and validity as it goes to show different individuals are stressing on few similar points about life - these might be worth exploring, or believing in. Take a shot at it.

Robin Sharma has adopted the age old technique of conveying a message through stories like how our grandmothers used to do..I'm really not much onto self help book but this one takes your through the fictional tale that makes it readable..Jack Valentine is really going rough, nothing seem to work well for him, his job going through difficult time, he financially broke, his love life too seem to taken on a wrong path, she has left him for good to beat it all he is met with an accident..At the hos ...more

Los conceptos que este libro expone a mi en lo personal me parecen muy acertados. El problema es que los presenta de una manera muy teta. Como medio infantiloide. Al final me quedo con el Poder del ahora de Eckart Tolle que trata los mismos temas pero expuestos de una manera más respetuosa. Lo que sí está chido son las citas. Hace referencia a muchos autores interesantes.

Indeed a story about living your Heart's desire. When I started reading books - I use to think, how do people read Motivational books; they must be so boring. But thanks to Robin Sharma for changing my perspective and of so many others and for making this process of self improvement so interesting!!

Excelente libro, me encanta como usa las palabras, un libro interesante que no puedes parar de leer y que al mismo tiempo te hace reflexionar mucho, una forma de plantearse un nuevo comienzo, una nueva vida, con frases sencillas y profundas, con muchas citas y muy motivador, lo recomiendo ampliamente.

Great inspirational book. Robin Sharma always impresses me with his inspirational tales. This book helps see the world differently in a day to day sense with goals to be done. Recommend this book to people who need a boost in their personal and business life.

::deep inhale, then exhale:: What can I say about this book?...honestly, it opened up my eyes to things I already knew on the inside, but maybe just needed an external light to be shone upon to recognize. I've marked my book, written in it, highlighted it, tabbed it; I plan on keeping it by my side for as long as it's meant to be there. However, I could have greatly done without the ever-constant double explanations (I guess you could call them that) that made the book seem like it was trying wa ...more

This book grabbed me from the first paragraph. The protagonist goes through a journey, a quest really, to find out how to live his life. I thought the book was moving, spiritual and inspiring -- I can honestly say this book helped change how I will be living going forward. A must read!
