Overview

LEARN THE EXTRAORDINARY SECRET LYING IN THE WORDS 'THANK YOU'.



This book shows you the power of gratitude, and how every day the most successful people use it to thrive, seek happiness and help others.



Most of us say 'thank you' reflexively to show good manners, appreciate favors received, enjoy serendipity or comply with etiquette. But research has shown that properly applied gratitude (not automatic or fake gratefulness) can exponentially improve your life and help you succeed in everything you do - yes, EVERYTHING. The key lies in constantly following several things discussed in the book.


The book contains a helpful Discussion Guide and a sample chapter of sequel The Power of Patience: 96 Traits of Highly Effective People - A Dip in the Minds of Successful Folk, From Leaders to Laymen. Through thought-provoking questions, the book gives extensive advice on how to use the discussion guide, how to inform decisions related to the topics at hand, and how to best read it - alone, in reading groups, with your partner, or as part of learning activities, among others.


After reading this book, you will know how to:



  • Identify where your passion truly lies, and how to effectively follow your heart;
  • Use gratitude to succeed in every project you undertake; and
  • Communicate and negotiate more effectively (the 'promise in compromise')


Who will benefit from this book?


You.

About the Author

I wish to remain anonymous because the ideas I convey in my books are far more momentous than my humble person. Consider me nonexistent - a myth, a modicum of human folklore, a thinking iota in our collective wisdom.

Just delve into my books, learn a thing or two...and, if you like the content, try to improve your life (and others' lives). I don't aim to be a personal-growth guru, a healer, a celebrated self-help pundit, an attention-hungry author. In our publicity-obsessed culture, we don't need another such figure.

I see life through the lens of passion and compassion; promise and compromise; happiness; and unwearied altruism, the kind you project when you stare at a newborn and know right away that only you can help him or her fulfill the untapped, God-given potential each of us has. We have that inner passion - so why not use it, enhance it, modify it, channel it while we are here on Earth?

As an author, philosopher and life coach, I write books that inspire, motivate and teach you how to reconnect with your inner energy and ignite your outer potential.

In an earlier life, I learned the ropes of financial management, organizational effectiveness, strategy, marketing and investment banking, first earning an MBA in Finance at Rutgers University and then working in various roles in the financial-services industry in New York and New Jersey.

These positions ultimately enabled me to see how infinite goodness manifests itself in humans, producing pure bliss in unexpected moments and places - and how, unfortunately, sometimes our worst angels lead us to blaze unfortunate and troublesome paths for ourselves and others.

These days, I wake up each morning to the sweet, hopeful music of life, and sleep to the adorable, buoyant melody of tomorrow - living one day at the time, enjoying simple moments, appreciating the chance to exist, and feeling grateful for the serendipity of human love.
