Have you read “The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari”? Are you looking for an inspiring book to read?
Well, this book is one of the most transformation books I’ve come across.
Last week, I wrote about the power that books have.
Books can change our perspectives and transform our lives.
That’s why I’m excited to be starting the Socialmerk book club.
Because we are all different, books impact us differently.
Two people can read the same book, even the same quote, and walk away with two totally different perspectives.
Reading “The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari” completely transformed Jen’s life. After reading this book, written by Robin Sharma, Jen made the brave decision to move to Buffalo.
Throughout reading the book, Jen would send me quotes that inspired her.
One of those quotes was extremely powerful:
“There is nothing noble about being superior to some other person. True nobility lies in being superior to your former self. All I’m really getting as is that if you want to improve your life and live with all that you deserve, you must run your own race. It doesn’t matter what other people say about you. What’s important is what you say to yourself. Do not be concerned with the judgment of others as long as you know what you are doing is right. You can do whatever you want to do, as long as it is correct according to your conscience and your heart. Never be ashamed of doing that which is right. Decide on what you think is good and then stick to it. And for god sakes, never get into the petty habit of measuring your self-worth against other people’s net worth.”
It is truly an amazing quote.
The quote above resonated deeply with both of us, but here’s the interesting thing: the parts of the quote that resonated with us were different.
For Jen, one line stood out as the main takeaway of the quote.
“Never get into the petty habit of measuring your self-worth against other people’s net worth.”
That line resonated deeply with Jen because that is something she’s working on.
Jen is working on not measuring her insides based on other people’s outsides.
For me, there was an entirely different line that stood out.
“It doesn’t matter what other people say about you. What’s important is what you say to yourself. Do not be concerned with the judgment of others as long as you know what you are doing is right.”
That line resonated deeply with me because that is something that I’m working on.
I’m working on not caring about what other people think.
Diving into self-growth:
I think the reason why both Jen and I so deeply appreciate this book, and that quote is because we’re both focused on self-growth.
We are big advocates for mental health and through Socialmerk, we’re trying to create more meaningful conversations.
We want to encourage and inspire you to tune into your self-talk.
Our goal is to help you live a more authentically happy and healthy life.
We believe that this book can help you reframe your perspectives, tune into your self-talk and increase your self-love.
