Plot of the Book
The main idea of this book is not to cave on everything in your life, and this is because it concerns those who don’t care about their life and don’t want to change anything to achieve something better. However this is guidance, or better yet, an observance, of things which really matter and should be taken care of. All these principles are based on previous experiences.
Of course, nobody has a smooth life without any unpleasant circumstances. But the point is not to waste your life energy on something irrelevant, e.g. arguing with someone, criticism, or unhappiness with money change – these things are really nothing. Excitement make us stronger and much more satisfied. On the other hand, there is a disadvantage of the technical progress which evolves Internet bounds, thus everyone can see everybody else’s life online, and it makes them less happy. This is one destructive power of humanity.
Consequently, this masterpiece has very important call-to-action, which pierces the whole text – do something if you want to change your life, otherwise – you probably don’t want it so much. And be sure, nobody can remain indifferent after reading this wonderful life-saver. Change your way of thinking!
