Description

Start living the life you've always wanted

It could be that you've figured everything out on your own and have ended up acing your career, meeting and marrying your perfect partner, producing three wonderful kids, owning a holiday home in Mustique and having a drop-dead gorgeous life. In which case, we applaud you.

If, on the other hand, you need the cheat codes, then this book will give you a nudge.

Redefining the genre of 'self-help comedy, ' Shine is a book about the brevity of life. It contains adult themes of mortality, change, exhaustion and unrelenting pressure. Thankfully, the bleakness is done with humour and the solutions are entertaining, do-able and uplifting.

Shine is the literary equivalent of 'ctrl/alt/delete.' All you have to do is read the book, keep an open mind, and apply the learning. You will experience a personal re-boot with new mental software installed, upgrading you to 'best possible self.' It's a very simple process that also happens to be 'not very easy.' Because, of course, if being your best self was easy, everybody would be doing it.

The average lifespan is 4000 weeks. Look around and you'll see too many people having a 'near life experience.' They're alive, but not living.

Truth time: life's a short and precious gift that's hurtling by in a blur. If you want to make a dent in the universe, it's time to wake up.

We figure that if you're going to rise, you may as well shine.

Laugh and learn while you:



Rediscover your ability to ping out of bed every single day with fire in your belly and a smile on your face.
Identify what really matters in your life and how to stop stressing about the stuff that doesn't.
Remember how to focus on all that makes you happy and cut the nonsense that worries you for no reason.

Back cover copy

WARNING: PLEASE READ THIS BOOK AT YOUR OWN RISK.

The ideas described herein may be hazardous or even fatal to your ego. Your desire to 'look good, ' 'be right' and 'prove your self-worth' may dissolve. There will be a striking reduction in conflict in your relationships. You may put the past back in the past and start living more fully in the present.

There is also a series of side-effects. The lifting of the weight of the world from your shoulders will result in a spring in your step and, beware, when you breeze into work with a genuine smile, people will be saying nice things about you behind your back. You will feel significantly happier, with frequent outbursts of joy. In extreme cases, you may even fall 'head over heels' in love with life.

If you grasp the principles at a deep level, you will feel so amazing that the SHINE leaks out of you and 'infects' those around you.

You have been warned. You will probably never need to see a doctor again. This book will seriously change your life and the lives of those around you.

It's time to #SHINE.
