I finished reading this book ‘The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari’ by Robin Sharma and I would say that it is a treasure for anyone who’s seeking peace and true happiness in life.
The book presents a fable about life which is learnt by a successful lawyer who had all the materialistic leisure yet was unsatisfied and working continuously made him both physically and mentally weak. He decides to drop his occupation and find true peace and eternal happiness. His voyage to the east and then to the Himalayas finds him his treasure and the true meaning of life. He then tells all about this to his friend who was his colleague and the closest person to him.
Well, that was the short summary but it does not have the treasure which one can only find after reading this book. I had heard a lot about Robin Sharma that he writes motivational books and reading his books can make a good deal of difference. The way he states the ways which can make our lives truly beautiful and we can find spiritual satisfaction which we all lack.
The book also instructs about how we can manage our lives more efficiently and plan our goals. The world is a busy place, and the people are the cause of it. We humans are being so engaged in our work to find materialistic leisure that we have forgotten that spiritual happiness is true happiness. We have forgot to chase our real dreams and the reality of this world, that even if a person is rich and has all the needs fulfilled, he is not necessarily happy.
Some books spread knowledge and enlighten the path to success and a better life. The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari is one such sublime book. I would suggest it to everyone, and especially those who are frustrated with life and seek for ways to embrace it. It was amazing to read it, an exquisite experience really. I mean, how can just one fable unlock the treasure to a purposeful life.
Robin Sharma is a well known author and is well known for inspirational and motivational writing.This book proves why and I would love to read more of his books and I sure will. I really wish he could read this but maybe it’s not possible for now. This book is no doubt, a bestseller, and now I know how and why.
There’s also one quote in the books which really moved me:
“There are no mistakes in life, only lessons. There is no such thing as a negative experience, only opportunities to grow, learn and advance along the road to self-mastery.” – Robin Sharma
