Forget about the glass ceiling - let's change the system altogether by redefining the very meaning of success at work and in our personal lives --This text refers to the Gebundene Ausgabe edition.Alle Produktbeschreibungen
In essence, she tells the reader: “You are not crazy to feel overwhelmed. I was too. And I decided to do something about it.”
I have long known that Arianna is a great champion of sleep. So am I. I have no problem getting enough rest. But the quality of it has seemed to suffer over the past few years. Life’s challenges have awoken me in the middle of the night and robbed me of dreams. Technology and my ambition to keep up have left me feeling depleted.
When it comes to our digital diets, less really is more.
Arianna’s premise is we must redefine the meaning of success to include well-being, wisdom, wonder and community. The message of her book can be boiled down to one word — ‘love’. The more I think of it, the more I realize the limits of our minds. We have no love in our minds, only thoughts. When we react from the mind, we are entangled in the web of our own making. In fact, every stressor we feel comes down to one thing — our reaction. Stress comes from a lack of trust that everything is going to be alright.
The truth is if we define “alright” to be That Which Is, then yes, everything will be alright. In fact, everything is alright all the time. Everything is indeed in alignment with the Universe. Our trouble begins when we ourselves are not.
Love can change that. When we come from our hearts’ center, we are free.
Thrive is a smart piece of work that cites Greek and modern-day philosophers alike. She even quotes Carl Honoré, whose thinking about the Slow Movement greatly influenced mine.
My favorite part of her book is her discussion about time. She speaks of it in terms of physics. Time, in the physicist’s view, is a landscape in which past, present and future can be seen. Like a mountain and a meadow and a wildflower all converging into one big thing. If that is true, than we needn’t rush. All of time rests on a single canvas.
This book insists that we can not only survive, but actually thrive, even in our 24/7 world. As with all things, the quality of our lives is not informed by our bank account of Facebook fans or Twitter followers.
The beauty of our existence is informed solely by the depth of our hearts.
As I was leaving South Africa starting my 'adult live' (uni,own place, business..) she wanted to give a farewell present something that may lead me in the right direction.
I wanted to give it a s***, started reading it, trying to sit down and do something for my own. The way she authors those insights, makes you think about your own style of thinking, living and communicating.
I'm only 20 years old, not in touch (yet) with stressfull 80 hours week or business life but all those secrets, basics apply individually.
Whether a 20 year old or a 60 year old, I'm sure will be fully inspired after reading this book.
Thank you Ariana
