This book is genius. It shifted many of my old belief, and got to the core keys for becoming successful and free. This book will literally makes you shift you thinking, and point out sabotaging thoughts. If you want live free financially and mentally, this is the book for you.

This is where is all began, a book. Many years ago, I met my first mentor. He is twice older than me, but probably 10 times wiser. He taught me so many profound life lessons that leads me to who I am today. One of the most impactful idea I got from him is to 'self-educate', there is a difference between schooling and education. Reading is a form of  self-education, explore the topics you are curious about. He introduced me to Mr.Carnegie. And even a 15-year-old boy can understand his book, because it is simple & practical. This book made me moving towards to an intentional life. I am forever grateful. This is a must read for everybody!

I used to worry about lot of things, past and future. The result is stress and insomnia! I am so grateful that my first mentor introduced me to Dale Carnegie, by practicing all the principles, I now can focus on what's at hand. And more importantly I can sleep at night no matter what's happening through out the week.


It is always fascinating to read the stories of giants. Elon Musk is a huge inspiration to our world, personally he is my hero. After reading his story all the way from childhood to now, it amazes me how much passion he has in what he does. Putting all his money in Space X final launch with no 3 failed attempts, he is the one of few people who would have the guts to do it. Space exploration and the future of humanity is something I am crazily curious about, and Elon Musk ignite the fire within me follow this dream. One day we will go belong our solar system, traveling through space and see what's out there.

The last chapter on Cosmic Perspective really spoke with me. When I hear Neil described how empowering it is to realize that we are small, yet the same with the stars in the sky, it gives me goose pumps. And the cosmic perspective really hits my deepest belief of oneness with the world. As Neil Puts it:"Those who see the cosmic perspective as a depressing outlook, they really need to reassess how they think about the world. Because when I look up in the universe, I know I'm small but I'm also big. I'm big because I'm connected to the universe, and the universe is connected to me."


This book changed my life, the energy chart provided by David Hawkins is an eye opening experience. Suffering is a choice, by choose to letting go of negativity, we will be free from limiting ourselves so that we are closer to enlightenment. This book helped me shape my view of life and my mission by showing different level of conciseness from Shame & Guilt to Courage and all the way to Peace & Enlightenment. I would give everyone in the world a copy of this book when I could.
