Do you sometimes feel that the universe throws various hints at you…this book was something like that to me.Out of the blue I decided to read this book one sunny day and I was just so pleasantly shocked at the outcome and the message it conveyed.
We live in such a materialistic and visual world today all thanks to social media.The FOMO is driving us crazy day by day and we are just getting more and more sucked into this loophole!
This book by Sanjay Desai reminds us to get our priorities right.It asks us to take a grip over our life and jump on to the driving seat of our life. And it does so almost unknowingly. This book takes us through the trials and tribulations of Jasmine,a wannabe supermodel…The most interesting part is the way this book combines her story to our lives with the help of microlearning courses. Here we are introduced to the concept of TheConsciousLeap (https://www.theconsciousleap.com/JasmineBuildsOnShiftingSands/Learning) All these courses are free and present in the above link but it truly makes sense when go through them via Jasmine’s story. We get deeply connected to Jasmine’s success and failures almost reflecting our own success and failures!We also learn how we can make our dreams a reality by combining our goals, our will power and our continued focus.
Jasmine’s story is no different from your or my story. She faces troubles and doubts in every step..luckily she meets good mentors on the path to her success,these mentors guide her by giving her the formulas to success.Having just a passion and will is not enough , one should be ready to do the hardwork required and one should be open to and make use of the opportunities that come in our way. As Jasmine’s story goes there are bound to be troubles along the path,its how you persevere amidst these and focus on your end goal.
One of my favourite formulas I saw in the book was ‘Goal+will*focus=Win(Dream)’
If we follow such a formula in all walks of life,we are sure to succeed in whatever we wish to achieve.
I have always felt I was a fiction lover and non fiction hater but in this book the author blends fiction and non fiction so perfectly to create a self help manual,something that each of us need desperately today. A must read especially for those who are lost and are trying to find a purpose.
