My 101 chapters shed light on how you may use your intuition to become as successful as you intend to be. It explores the litmus test you may apply when choosing your inner cabinet of friends and business partners to build your trusted network. The Power Guide shares many of the inspirational triggers I deployed to help me distinguish myself in my academic and professional examinations, secure the choice jobs that I wanted, as well as forge fruitful business partnerships and tie-ups. Life is short, and this Power Guide seeks to help you live it!
The great scientist Albert Einstein referred to his intuition as the only real valuable thing. It has been more than 50 years since Einstein has passed on, but the world has only just begun to feel comfortable talking about gut feelings and the fact that intuition does, indeed, play a part in decision making, in the way we live, and in the way we become successful. For some of you, it will just be the beginning of a rich and great adventure leading to a bigger, better, and greater life. I hope it will be like that for all of you.
At a more practical level, the 101 chapters in this book have been customized for the busy professional or the student of life who's eager to get ahead. For this reason, I have inserted a reading guide just after the table of contents to help you get through this Power Guide in the most efficient way possible. My philosophy is to get you to the important bits fast, so that when you are there, you can take it slow to absorb and internalize the stuff that matters most to you.
Please sit back and enjoy the ride, because when you open this book, you are no longer bound by time, space, or physical constraints. When you start reading, let your spirit go free, and let's enjoy the world together! Success belongs to you, and this Power Guide will help you claim it!
