It’s a book about surviving the hard life you face and believing that hard-work never fails you.

This book inspired me to be brave to seize for my longing passion. If she could conquer the unknown land, I myself should be able to do so.

I don't read a lot of motivational books, this is actually the first motivational book I've ever read from cover to cover. One thing that really bugged me was the repetition. I already know that going to Singapore alone barely having any money while studying in NTU made her a stronger person etc etc, so you don't have to keep telling me that on every single chapter. Maybe that's what the book supposed to do, tell me things repetitiously so the motivation will be imprinted in my head. I'm not a b ...more

Boring. It wasn't that motivational. Preferred the movie as the book was too thickly uninteresting.

The only reason I finish reading this book is to read the story,not really keen on motivational parts where she keeps on repeating the same thing.I get that it's a motivational book and it is to be expected,but I was expecting a story and I was sort of disappointed.Because my kind of motivational stories is not really where you told me what I should do,but more to inspire me with stories (you get what I'm trying to say ?).For example,Andrea Hirata's books.Anyway,it was good but a bit boring for ...more

This book, unlike other motivationg books, not only feed us with some motivating words, but it tells the life story of Merry Riana, and how she transforms the words she heard and read to the real fight against real problems. Some points she shared are to try (even when you fail, try again!), focus, learn from failures and don't give up with your dream. Believe in God and believe in yourself. Thought that young people should read the book to inspire them to fight for their dreams.

A VERY INSPIRING BOOK! this is my first motivation book and it was awesome. for me it's a complete package for a motivational book. the book began with the story about merry riana who was in a very bad financial condition. then the story about her survival. and finally her successful career and her achievement. then the book complete the package with some tips how to be a successful person in career.

this book really really inspire me.

It cannot be categorized as a biography because only tells us some part of Merry's life. But, for them who want to know how a hard work could make even a possible thing happens, this is very inspiring.

“Apakah arti relasi dengan orang terdekat atau teman hidup? Sebagian orang mengartikannya sebagai pendamping hidup dalam melewati suka dan duka, membina satu hubungan rumahtangga yang harmonis, bersama-sama meraih kesejahteraan keluarga. Aku pun demikian. Namun lebih jauh lagi, teman hidup bagiku adalah partner perjuangan. Sebuah relasi bisa saling memberi ruang bagi semangat positif masing-masing. Sejak berpacaran dengan Alva, dan memiliki niat serius untuk masuk ke jenjang pernikahan, aku tahu permulaan apa yang harus kami buat. Yang harus kami bina adalah melatih diri kami untuk menjadi "pembentuk" sukses satu sama lain. Dan pada akhirnya, menjadi sukses bersama. Relasi kami jangan saling mengubur potensi masing-masing, atau lebih parah lagi melumpuhkan hasrat untuk berkembang.” 7 likes
“Jika Anda akan atau telah memulai satu perjuangan yang mantap untuk bisa menyejahterakan hidup, ajaklah pasangan untuk mengerti dan memahami passion Anda. Doa dan dukungan pendampingan sangat besar artinya untuk menambah kekuatan hati saat kita berjalan. Karena perjuangan memiliki jalan misterius. Perubahan cuaca bisa terjadi dalam rupa yang tidak kita duga. Keberadaan pasangan hidup yang suportif dan apresiatif terhadap apa yang kita buat akan begitu bermakna. Kita bisa merasakan perbedaan, berjuang dengan dukungan dan berjuang dalam tekanan adalah dua hal yang berbeda. Aku harus bersyukur bahwa diriku berjodoh dengan seseorang yang sangat memahami napas perjuanganku.” 4 likes
