9780062515605: The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari: A Fable About Fulfilling Your Dreams and Reaching Your Destiny

In this wonderfully crafted fable, protagonist Julian Mantle, a tough, high-powered, and incredibly driven lawyer, changes his life radically after a heart attack nearly kills him. To the amazement of all, he decides to abandon his successful career, sell all his possessions, and trek to India in an effort to find timeless wisdom on living a more meaningful life. Months later, when he returns to the West looking tranquil and radiantly young, he recounts the story of his life-changing journey through the Himalayas, sharing with his former law protg seven principles and practices he discovered there that can help us get off the career treadmill and begin to experience the true joy of life.

The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari imaginatively presents a set of simple yet profoundly effective lessons for personal growth, created by bestselling author and renowned professional speaker Robin S. Sharma, based on his own search for life's true purpose. In a tale that is both wondrous and mystical, Sharma offers practical and wise advice on how to:

  • develop joyful thoughts
  • follow your life's mission and calling
  • look within for success
  • cultivate self-discipline and act courageously
  • value time as your most important commodity
  • nourish your relationships
  • and live life fully, one day at a time.

    Review:

    Everyone loves a good fable, and this is certainly one. The protagonist is Julian Mantle, a high-profile attorney with a whacked-out schedule and a shameful set of spiritual priorities. Of course it takes a crisis (heart attack) to give Mantle pause. And pause he does--suddenly selling all his beloved possessions to trek India in pursuit of a meaningful existence. The Himalayan gurus along the way give simple advice, such as, "What lies behind you and what lies before you is nothing compared to what lies within you." Yet it is easy to forgive the story's simplicity because each kernel of wisdom is framed to address the persistent angst of Western white-collar professionals. --Gail Hudson

    From the Back Cover:

    Here is the story of Julian Mantle, a superstar lawyer whose out-of-balance lifestyle leads him to a near-fatal heart attack in a packed courtroom. His physical collapse brings him into a spiritual crisis that forces him to confront the condition of his life. Hoping to find happiness and fulfillment, he embarks upon an extraordinary odyssey to an ancient culture, where he discovers a powerful system to release the potential of his mind, body, and soul and learns to live with passion, purpose, and peace. Brilliantly blending ancient spiritual wisdom of the east with contemporary success principles of the West, this inspiring tale provides a step-by-step approach to living with greater courage, balance, abundance and joy.
