Full Description

“I think, therefore I am” Descartes wrote in the seventeenth century.

As a result of all that thinking, our society has changed spectacularly. But in our success in designing space shuttles and robots, and in living our lives with ever increasing efficiency, we have somehow started to overlook the fact that people are made up of much more than just their minds. The unexpected downside of society’s frantic progress and its focus on reason is that many people are left feeling stressed and empty. Both at work and at home, they are confronted with huge levels of expectation that they simply cannot meet. The time has come to rediscover one’s true self. By asking the right questions, this book will help you find out who you really are, to define what motivates you and what you stand for. It will allow you to develop the necessary resilience to direct the story of your life, even during difficult times. After all, it is only when our being and our actions match perfectly that we can be true to ourselves and successful at the same time, both professionally and personally.
