STEVE JOBS, THE YOGI AND MESep 04, 2017
No matter how successful we are, how much we have accumulated, or how respected we are, there is always a search for what really matters.
We consume self help books and personal growth books to help up find the answers even though we may not truly even understand the question.
One of my favourite books of all time is Autobiography of a Yogi.
The book was the ONLY book that was on Steve Jobs iPad as well as being his last gift to his friends. Everyone attending Steve Job's funeral was given a copy of the book. I feel as though I'm in good company.
I read Paramahansa Yogananda's story every few years. It was a well known fact that Steve Jobs re-read the autobiography every year.
Why do I love this book as so many others do? At its core, it is a path to self-actualization, a way to build our internal voice and to build companies and organization in that same way. To build what matters.
Steve believed in himself and his work, the learnings from Yogananda helped him to push forward regardless of whether he had believers cheering him on or not.
The book is not about religion. It's really about spirituality, faith and common sense. It's a book for everyone that wants to challenge their thoughts and beliefs.
Once you understand and implement the lessons from this book, your life will and the world around you cannot help but change.
Part Travelogue, with a heaping dose of using faith and dedication, sprinkled with enough science to calm even the most spiritually uneasy being, Autobiography of a Yogi is a book you will never forget.
Many of my community members message me about what I read and what they should read.
The important thing to remember is not how many books you read, but which books you read and are you using those learnings and implementing them into your daily life to make a difference?
After many years of being asked, I decided to start my own online book club in order to share my passion for knowledge and the books that made a massive impact in my life.
My book club's premise is simple; I will include books that I love and have made a dramatic impact in my life thats it!
However, rather than just have you read the book, I want these books to truly make an impact on your life.
So each month I will be holding a live 1 hour online interactive class where we not only discuss the book, but you will leave with a clear path on how to implement the lessons learned!
