One day, the school principal called me into her office.She sat me down and told me: '' you look depressed. You should try to be happier '' . I wished that along with the advice, she also gave me the manual, a how to guide, anything.I wished the teachers taught us to be happy, unfortunately they don't. I wished I learned the important stuff, the tools that would help me better my life.
Instead of that, I was deep in third degree equations and irregular verbs I didn't even use.I wanted to learn the things that mattered, that would make a real difference in my life.I wanted to know how my mind worked, how my emotions work.I wanted to explore that wonderful machine called human being. I wanted to know myself, to find what truly mattered to me so that my life could have meaning.
I wanted all that so much that I quit school.To me, it was impossible to both continue school and go on my quest. I had to choose. I wanted to give it my 100 %, not just my spare time.And I did. This book is the result of that commitment.I want to share with you what I have learned because it has accomplished wonders for me.I hope it will accomplish wonders for you too.
Chapter 1 : Managing your mind
The ancient Greeks believed that men were mere playthings to amuse the Gods. If the fancy took them, the Gods could wreak havoc in men's lives and delight in their struggle. The Arabs believe in fate, ''maktoub'' which litterally means '' what is written ''.In other words, the scenario of your life is already written. Your life happens to you, you have zero control over it. There is nothing you can do about it, you do not matter. You're an object.Well, you are not an object. You are the creator of your own life. You stand at the centre, you are the main character .That is what the Law of Attraction states. It says that you matter, because the thoughts you think everyday create the events in your life. So if you want to control your life, you need to control your mind. It is that simple. Thoughts lead to actions, so if you want to change what you do, you first need to change how you think.
