Each Sunday for my video challenge, I am doing a book review, focusing on a book which has made an impact on my life and business. Today’s is not an exception – The Power of Now.
This book as sold millions and I have read it at least three times. This short review will not do the book justice as there is so much it in.
There are so many points in this book. If you read it, you’ll find that some resonate more with you than maybe me but let’s hear three things that I’ve taken away from it.
1. There is no such thing as time. It’s all made up.
2. The past and the future don’t happen. The past is gone; there’s nothing we can do about it. The future is something that we often create in our head.
3. The ego makes us overthink things. If we could stop thinking, I think we’d probably all feel a lot better for it.
The book is about The Now. The only thing we have is the present. I think if we realise that the mind is a superb instrument, it is very powerful but also it can very destructive in the way that we tend to overthink things.
Reading this book has opened my mind onto how I think and how the ego can control the way you do things and how the only thing you can do is be in the present. So I’d like to end on this quote, “Realise deeply that the present moment “is all you ever have. “Make now the primary focus on your life.” I highly recommend this book.
“Realise deeply that the present moment is all you ever have. Make the now the primary focus of your life” – Eckhart Tolle.
