Robin Sharma’s, book, ‘The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari,’ is one of the most empowering books of all time. For this reason, I believe all dreamers must read it because it will encourage them to follow their dreams and believe they will come true.
The book teaches how to build a life that guarantees long-lasting happiness and fulfillment. It enlightens you that focusing on building your inner life is more important than building your outer life.
Read the book whenever you get a chance and your mindset will shift after learning the following lessons from it.
- Enjoy The Little Things
You don’t need too many material possessions for you to enjoy life. In the book, Sharma writes about Julian Mantle, a successful lawyer who sold his material possessions when he discovered that he could enjoy life by meditating on the beauty of the little things of life such as a spider’s web and flowers.
- There Is No Good or Bad Experience
There are no bad or good experiences because everything happens for your good. What you call bad experiences usually offer lessons that enable you to move towards self-mastery. Therefore, celebrate all experiences, and remember that most folks have grown immensely from bad experiences.
- The Secret to a Happy and Meaningful Life
You must do what you love for you to live a happy and meaningful life because focusing on what you love directs abundance into your life.
‘The secret of happiness is finding what you love and then direct all your energy towards doing it.’ – Robert Sharma
- Fatigue is a mental creation
Fatigue is just a mental creation because you have unlimited energy within you. You only get tired when you do what you hate. People who do what they love don’t get tired easily because their passion gives them lots of energy.
To prove that fatigue is a mental creation, Robin Sharma provides an example of a guy who feels tired at work but feels energised when a friend asks him to accompany him to a ball game.
- How To Create Positive Pressure That Will Make You Work Hard Towards Your Goals
You must learn to create positive pressure because it helps you work harder towards your goal. Robin Sharma teaches that you create positive pressure when you make your goals public because you will not want people to perceive you as a failure.
- Your Outer Life Improves if You Build Your Inner World
Working on factors such as discipline and optimism enables you to achieve whatever you want. Besides this, cultivating faith, a strong spirit, and self-mastery makes you unstoppable.
For this reason, you must focus on building your inner world because doing so will enable you to easily succeed in your outer world.
- Practice Silence and Solitude
Silence and solitude boost your creativity because they enable you to tap into your inner intelligence. Moreover, they enable you to attain inner peace, sleep better, and access the unlimited energy within you
- Advantages of Taking a Walk in Nature
Sharma believes spending time in nature enables you to align with your inner intelligence and peace hence improving your personal power. Also, he believes nature makes you energetic and restores your body to its natural state.
- The Purpose of Life is to Give
Nature proves that the purpose of life is to give because everything in nature is always giving. Flowers give you fragrance, plants give you oxygen, animal droppings make the soil fertile, and the soil feeds the world. We, therefore, fulfil nature’s purpose by making giving a part of our everyday lives.
