I’ve been suffering from a case of impostor syndrome due to a lateral move at work and needed to snap out of it. This book eased my tension and was an all-encompassing philosophical book for self-reflection.
Important reminders of philosophies that hold the key to happiness and my personal takeaways:
There is no yesterday or tomorrow; there’s only right now. If you live life earnestly in the present moment, you need not worry about what tomorrow holds or what yesterday made you feel. There’s no right or wrong way to move through the dance of life, so why should we worry needlessly and fuel anxieties about things that are out of our control? What’s done and what’s to come are not tangible; we have no way to alter what was or what might be. So let it go and focus your mind on what you can do right now in this very moment.
Other people’s views and life don’t concern you. You can’t control what other people think, say, or do, so why sit in fear of how they might perceive you? It would be best if you held your self-worth to a better version of yourself, not others. Do not compete or compare your being with others.
Anyways, I needed this book, and its presented ideas were invaluable at this very moment in my life.
I would recommend this one to anyone who might not be happy with the way life is right now.
