Robin Sharma has written an exceptional book titled Discover Your Destiny: The Seven Stages Of Self-Awakening, this is one of the best books that I have read in regards to the journey of awakening your mind to the greatness that resides within you. It is a must read and should be added to your personal development library. Below are a few paragraphs which will give you a brief insight into what the book is about. There is so much wisdom instilled in this book, it will transform your mind and your life if you act upon it.
“You are a seeker, as are so many others on the planet today. The world is transforming as people who were once willing to live ordinary lives now step out of their comfort zones to explore the wilderness of the extraordinary. People are no longer willing to settle for being half-alive, divorced from their authentic power. They want to live greatly and soar among the clouds, to walk among the giants, to dance with the stars!”
“Darkness only exists in the absence of light. And candles are being lit all across the planet, metaphorically speaking. We are moving towards a critical mass, a tipping point when there will be a massive shift. It’s not so far away. When enough people awaken to who they truly are and reclaim their highest potential. There will be a quantum leap. This whole place will be a lovely place to be.”
“Julian took off the social mask he had been wearing his whole life and became authentic, now living his life on his own terms, congruent with his highest values and according to the dictates of his heart. He stopped living to please others and stopped caring about looking good in the world. He refused to follow the crowd and betray himself, in any way. All he cared about now was being real and doing good. Julina Mantle has discovered his destiny and this has made him a very happy man.”
“Servant leaders are the most powerful of all, you know. Things are never as bad as they seem. The situations that cause us sorrow are the same ones that introduce us to the strength, power and wisdom that we truly are. Remember, we see the world not as it is but as we are. As you change, the way you see the world changes. As your awareness expands, you will become aware of things you previously could neither see nor understand.”
“If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there. So I need to take some time to think about what I want my life to stand for? Absolutely. This is one of the musts of life. Successful and fulfilled people make time to think, plan and reflect. They are awake to their lives because they know that each day is an incredibly precious gift. If you don’t believe that, walk in the cancer ward. Ask them what they would give for an extra day of life.”
“It’s hard to believe that we live in a world where most people are more concerned with following the crowd and doing what everyone else is doing than living their dreams. One of the greatest regrets a person can ever have is getting to the end of their lives and realizing they did not do their dreams.”
“What fun is life without a hint of mystery? What joy is life without a little adventure? This path you are interested in walking is not for the faint of heart, my friend. It requires great courage. You must confront your fears and then move through them. On the other side of your greatest fears lies your greatest life. Freedom lives on the other side of your fears. It will not be easy but it will lead you to the place that the deepest part of you is hungering to know.”
