to make your way of thinking more positive and positive, and at the same time Inspire you to think about how to spend this one-time life.

It fails like most self help does: clamoring together buzzwords and fun catch phrases that are altogether meaningless. They delve into the depths of our existence, encouraging readers to question their assumptions and explore new possibilities. It's highly addictive to get core insights on personally relevant topics without repetition or triviality. I'm not sure why, but I was expecting essays by different people in this book, but it's all articles by Brianna Wiest. Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages.In some ways it feels like an introductory course to positive psychology (mentioning Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Gay Hendricks, and Daniel Kahneman), however, if you are interested in this area of psychology, this is not the book for you as it mostly just name-drops these psychologists and barely talks about their work. It uses aspects of positive psychology to appeal to people who believe in data and science (it uses the phrase “emotional intelligence” endless amount of times), it uses philosophy for people who prefer that approach, and it uses extremely vague phrases to appeal to anyone else who might pick up the book (For example, “being routinely un-routine”… what does that even mean?

The first 40% was decent, not life changing and then the rest are just repetitive bullet point lists essentially. It is a transformative experience, an invitation to challenge our preconceived notions, and an opportunity for personal evolution. The author combines Jungian psychology and ancient Eastern and Western philosophical theories, starting from various aspects such as emotional management, intimate relationship, daily habits, self-cognition, lifestyle, etc.I believe the first and most important duty we have is to actualize the potential we were born with—both for ourselves and for the world. If you’ve ever bought a dress and instantly thought about the shoes that go with it, you get the point. Whether you're looking for some textbooks for university, the latest biography or a travel guide - you'll find what you need in our categories.

It was particularly disorienting because the first thing to think of was where I wanted to be in 20 years time, whereas a few essays up, she'd told me that people aren't happy today because they live in the future, rather than the now.These are the same people who have communicated to us some of the longest-standing conventional wisdom: that to believe is to become, that the mind is to be mastered, that the obstacle is the 2 way . The way it is written is very encouraging and supportive, which makes it easy to feel like you have a friend who is there to help you through tough times.

We take pride in offering a wide selection of used books, from classics to hidden gems, ensuring there’s something for every literary palate. In a famous essay, French Enlightenment philosopher Denis Diderot described how being gifted a new scarlet dressing gown made him unhappy and drove him into debt.

When things don’t work out the way you want them to, you think you’ve failed only because you didn’t re-create something you perceived as desirable. I'd rather read 10 to 15 well crafted essays (real essays) that challenge the way I tackle life, than 101 shallow lists on how to avoid positive thinking but also accept it. I do think people will find value with this - especially if you're looking for a no-frills, give me tips to me straight type of person.
