This book was so unbelievably insightful, humble, and satisfying!
From the topics covered and the research included to the personal anecdotes included along with the use of story and quotations this book is such a valuable resource for anyone seeking how to develop the monk mindset.
The pace was wonderful, however I read this in many small chunks over many days as I wanted to take in what I was reading and let the lessons settle in. This book is not just food for thought, it is a veritable feast for thought!
I was unfamiliar with Jay Shetty prior to requesting to read this. I had never heard of him or his podcast, I was simply interested in the subject matter.
This work is well researched, well written, and well meaning as well. You as the reader can tell that Jay is writing from a place of seeking to help others. The writing comes across as genuine and his writing voice feels reliable and honest. Not all books of this genre type can be spoken of the same way. You can tell he put a lot of hard work, energy, and just love into this book.
I very highly recommend this one to any and everyone.
Jay Shetty, social media superstar and host of the #1 podcast ‘On Purpose’, distills the timeless wisdom he learned as a practicing monk into practical steps anyone can take every day to live a less anxious, more meaningful life.
Over the past three years, Jay Shetty has become one of the world’s most popular influencers. One of his clips was the most watched video on Facebook last year, with over 360 million views. His social media following totals over 32 million, he has produced over 400 viral videos, which have amassed more than 5 billion views, and his podcast, ‘On Purpose’, is consistently ranked the world’s #1 health-related podcast.
In this inspiring, empowering book, Shetty draws on his time as a monk in the Vedic tradition to show us how we can clear the roadblocks to our potential and power. Drawing on ancient wisdom and his own rich experiences in the ashram, Think Like a Monk reveals how to overcome negative thoughts and habits, and access the calm and purpose that lie within all of us.
The lessons monks learn are profound but often abstract. Shetty transforms them into advice and exercises we can all apply to reduce stress, improve focus, improve relationships, identify our hidden abilities, increase self-discipline and give the gifts we find in ourselves to the world. Shetty proves that everyone can – and should – think like a monk.
