This was quite a nice book but it might be hard to understand at times as there is the constant use of metaphors. Since I sometimes read these type of books, the figurative language was not that hard to understand. This book will help in organising the mind and applying a growth mindset. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Ps. I know that my watch doesn‘t really match the book, but I had to use this idea and none of my other watches really contrast that well so... :)

I‘ve started to read ‘The Power of Now‘ and I have some pretty high expectations! I would be reading ‘Obsidio‘ (the third book I‘m the series I was reading) but I just can‘t seem to focus. So here‘s a book that I hope enlightens my mind!

I normally find self-help books either a bunch of egotistical babble or I gain one or two good nuggets from them and the rest is common sense - which is why I keep trying them, for those nuggets. This book was the right book at the right time. I have been trying to make major changes in my life, and this brought my self-observations together and gives guidance on how to actually make the change! I am impressed

@BookishMarginalia ‘s light reading: a 993-page book on the Enlightenment. The book is thicker than #Lexie cat!

I've been trudging through this for ages. I anticipated its being quite the TBR expander, but that's not how it turned out. I found it rather dry, while some of the book choices were just plain bizarre: The Celestine Prophecy? G.K. Chesterton's "Life of St. Francis" but not the saint himself? It reads like it was devised (commissioned?) as a project, rather than through genuine feeling for the genre. By no means terrible, but rather disappointing.
