Have you ever felt like you were living an aimless life?

Have you ever felt like you were living an aimless life? Like there was nothing significant to make you jump out of bed in the morning; the world would still get by with you staying in all day.

Well, every single day I felt that.

Of course, I had some nice days when I planned to go to lunch or catch a film with friends or family, but most of the days I just worked away at work. And I came home most of the evenings to watch TV with my cat next to me. It wasn’t like I had no objectives; they were out of my reach just too far. How can I travel the globe when I have accumulated so much debt to pay off over the years? When I was such a boring conversationalist, how could I discover someone to love? Every waking moment, so many “how s” circled my mind.

Then one day I went from high school into my ancient friend Toby. Since graduation, we hadn’t seen each other because we went to various colleges — him to Yale and me to a neighboring government university nearby so I could commonly visit my ailing mom. So that night we decided to catch up overdinner and it was then that I found out for myself that he was doing very well.

Toby was the head of IT at a multi-billion dollar business, happily married, with one daughter on the manner, and had in his passport stamps from more than 10 separate nations. He lived the dream— no, he lived my dream. I worked in a local organisation as an IT technician and stagnated there over the years without any sign of promotion. I had any noromantic opportunities, and somewhere my passport gathering dust was tucked away.

I checked my email home the next morning and discovered something from Toby. The title of the topic read, “Marcus, read this. It will alter your life as mine has changed.” It was called The Amazing You, and I was hooked after a few pages of chapter one. The experiences the author narrated were so comparable to mine, and the book seemed to put my precise ideas into words! The novel had an exciting narrative that caught all the way through my attention. A reflection section compelled me to tore-evaluate my life decisions at the end of each chapter, and I started to understand that all that occurred to me was due to me. We all had control over our own life, but I chosen to let it go instead.

It also introduced me to something called the Wheel of Consciousness, and following its concept led me to discover what had been holding me back from living the life I truly wanted. It was mind-blowing how this book seemed tailor-made for me and no one else. But Toby had said that it changed his life, and anyone with eyes could see that Toby has led a much different life from me since college! It didn’t seem to me like he had needed the book at all.

I called him up for dinner again and he explained that he didn’t do well in college, and couldn’t find a job after graduating. His student debt seemed to swallow him whole, and his then-girlfriend left him shortly after. I was incredulous. How did he get from a situation similar tomine to his envious situation now?

He told me it was thanks to The Amazing You. He learnt to take responsibility for himself and stopped blaming the education system for his destitution. The affirmation practices inside the book taught him to re-tune his mindset towards life itself, and it caused a transformation sogreat that even his parents were reading it as well!

I was completely sold. For the next few weeks, I read the book multiple times from cover to cover, while practicing all the techniques it taught.

How this book seemed tailor-made for me and nobody else was mind-blowing. But Toby said it altered his life, and anyone with eyes could see that since college Toby has led a very distinct life from me! It seemed to me that he did not need the book at all.

His student debt seemed to swallow him entirely, and soon afterwards his girlfriend left him. I was amazed. How did he get his envy situation now from a scenario comparable to the to mine?

It was thanks to The Amazing You that he told me. He learned to take responsibility for himself and stopped blaming his destitution for the education system. The book’s affirmation methods instructed him to reconfigure his mindset to life itself, and it triggered a so great transformation that it was also read by even his parents!

And I swear: there was never a better life for me. Last month, I had a miraculous promotion. My first six-year promotion. And a bigger corporation purchased the business and fresh peers went with it, one of whom was a pretty, intelligent girl called Amanda. Now we’ve been on a few dates, and she’s like nobody I’ve ever encountered. Apparently I’m the “funniest man on earth” for her, which in the past I’d never used to define myself. In fact, I wake up now in the morning before my alarm rings, and I’m out of the gate with a bounce in my step to be cliched. Trust me, you can’t miss this one book.
