Life Lessons from the Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

Life Lessons from the Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

Life Lessons from the Monk Who Sold His Ferrari is a great short illustration of how to live life to the fullest, while appreciating what is most meaningful. The meaning is not how much money you can make, but rather being their for your daughters first footsteps.

Parts I like it from the book :

1- We have email, fax machines and digital phones so that we can stay connected and yet we live in a time where human beings have never been less connected. We have lost touch with our humanity.

2- If you make even one person smile during your day or brighten the mood of even a stranger, your day has been a worthwhile one. Kindness, quite simply, is the rent we must pay for the space we occupy on this planet.

3- I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles he has overcome while trying to succeed.

4-We all have within us the courage and the capacity to handle even the greatest curves life may throw our way. ~ Rawan Al-Hayyan
