The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari is a fiction by Robin Sharma (Canadian writer), who is a globally respected humanitarian and widely considered one of the world’s top leadership and personal optimization advisors.”The monk who sold his Ferrari” is one of the best motivational books you will ever come across.
The book is written in the form of a conversation between two friends. The story is about Julian Mantle who is a successful lawyer but is full of tension and work pressure, who finally decides to leave his luxuries and baggage of past and goes to the Himalayan mountain in search of peace.

All of them are very inspiring and potentially very useful. A well-cultivated mind will blossom beyond our expectations. The quality of our life always depends upon our thoughts. It is said in this book that even the best-conditioned thinkers are using 1/100th of a percent of their mental resources. Only a well-trained mind can explore the untapped potential of mental capacity.
The mind is a good servant but a bad master. If you have become a negative thinker, this is because you have not cared for your mind and taken no time to train it to focus on the good. The mind literally works like any other muscle in our body. Use it or lose it.
Most parts of the book contain nothing that we wouldn’t already know. For example: Be positive, think positive, don’t let negative thoughts spoil, etc which are easy to say but difficult to follow and practice. But the thing that you will gain from the book is simply life-changing. Books simply help you to see what is already within yourself, that’s what enlightenment is all about.
No doubt it is a wonderful book especially well suited for the busy lives most of us live. It is easy to forget to live in the present and get carried away. The book shares tricks, tips, short stories, examples, exercises, and tools that you could practically practice for a better lifestyle.
It is surely a must-read book for everyone who thinks that they don’t have enough time for anything, life is controlling them and days are just passing very fast.’ The monk who sold his Ferrari’ is all about how to master ourselves. There are no mistakes, only lessons, see setbacks as opportunities for personal expansion and spiritual growth.
If you really want to be inspired, I would personally recommend it to everyone. If you are at school, college, or amidst an incredibly busy life. Take a pause and have a good read. Little lessons fuel your inner and outer growth.

Thanks for your posting. One other thing is that if you are advertising your property alone, one of the troubles you need to be mindful of upfront is how to deal with household inspection records. As a FSBO seller, the key towards successfully switching your property and also saving money about real estate agent revenue is awareness. The more you realize, the better your sales effort will likely be. One area in which this is particularly critical is assessments.
